Seizing opportunities to give in little ways or big ways is part of what makes the Christmas season so special. It’s easy to get busy and not take the time to sprinkle love onto the people around us, but you never know who might really need that hug, that cup of coffee, or just a bright smile. Giving can be serving (volunteering at a soup kitchen, or offering to shovel a snowy driveway). Giving can be words, as you reach out with a phone call or a hand written card to just let someone know you see them and you care. Giving can come in the form of little treasures that are beautiful, create joy, or capture a moment. If you’re stumped and can’t think of something that fits the bill, try making Origami Ornaments - these can be a wonderful craft no matter your age, and are sure to create smiles for giver & receiver alike!

On the topic of giving, gifts remain the classic way to celebrate the most wonderful time of the year. Gifts can be little stocking stuffers, or large group gifts. My recommendation is to go unique with your gifting to really make an impression that will last. Here are my top 3 little gifts and my top 3 large gifts to let someone know you care this holiday season!
