There are many kinds of gifts, some extravagant, some simple, some thoughtful, some obligatory. This time of year we bring gifts wherever we go, and the expense can really add up—especially when the gift wrap and a card cost almost as much as the gift itself!
Do you spell “tomato” t-o-o-m-a-n-y? Have you run out of creative ways to use a zucchini? Many of us love to share the late summer bounty of our garden with others. From salsa to spaghetti sauce, zucchini bread to casseroles, garden gifts are a pleasure to make and a joy to receive—and eat!
Kids and summer camp go hand in hand. But sometimes leaving home, even to a day camp, can be hard—and we don’t just mean for the kids. While they are enjoying new experiences, facing challenges and meeting new friends, we moms want them to know we’re there for them if they need us, even as we celebrate their independence.
Whenever I leave my house I like to leave a little note behind telling my husband where I went. It doesn’t matter whether I’m going to the gym or the grocery store or for a walk, at the bottom of the note, I always like to add a personal message—thanks for something that he’s done around the house that I really appreciated, or that I can’t wait for our movie night tonight, or just a little smiley face with an ‘I love you.’ Of course, I am usually writing this on the back of an envelope or a receipt, the nearest scrap of paper I can grab, which tends to take away some of the romance. Now I am excited to use our new mini note cards for these kinds of messages. They are perfect to keep around the house for quick little notes to your husband, kids, babysitter, whomever. Or keep them at work to give your notes to coworkers a little personality. Mini note cards aren’t meant to be saved for special occasions or important messages. They are meant to be used everyday, when you want your message to be noticed.
Shop for mini note cards to keep around the house all year round for all your cute note ideas. They make great cards for gifts, too!
One thing you’re thankful for every Thanksgiving is the fact you don’t have to host, right? And how grateful we are to the sister or mother or aunt who does host, right? This year, show your appreciation with one of these Thanksgiving hostess gift ideas. The host will LOVE it!
