(=hristmas $miles! A Holiday Memory Making / Gift Idea
▶️ Thought I would do something different and share a gift idea / holiday memory making idea in case anyone would like to do something similar!
▶️ We all know that it’s harder to shop for people the older they get. Adults just don’t need much unless it’s something practical, and usually then they will buy it themselves when they need it.
▶️ It also seems to be that the older we get, the more we value memories over physical gifts.
▶️ Additionally, giving gifts tend to be the fun part at this stage in life. Sure, it’s fun to get a gift, but when you are able to bless someone else, that feeling is better than any gift could ever provide.
▶️ after talking about it last year, my husband and I came up with the idea to *do* something with or for one another rather than *give* one another something and this was my idea.
▶️ I took $100 and broke it down into five dollar bills and put it in an envelope with a note that explained the intention behind it.
▶️ Essentially, the idea is to go around town together and find ways to use the five dollars to bless someone, give it away to different people, leave it for someone to find as a surprise and then watch them find it, etc.
▶️ It was a way to make others smile and make Christmas memories for us. This is why I labeled the envelope (=hristmas $miles (see the video for a better visual).
▶️ There’s all kinds of ways you could do this and you certainly could use different denominations and amounts of money depending on your budget.
▶️ Do you have any other ideas of this type of gift that allows for memories versus a physical gift? If so, share them below!👇🏼
