Friends, I don't know about you, but I am exhausted by the negative political arguments happening all over our social media outlets. It leaves me feeling drained & quite weary as I watch good people fall into the trap of Facebook fights & Twitter wars.
Today I want to share a little joy with you. Today's blog post includes a handful of inexpensive & free gift ideas because sometimes all we can do is shine a little light & brighten someone's day.
1. Pretty jars of preserves: Last Christmas I gifted my family jars of homemade strawberry jam. Who says we can't extend this kind of giving year-round? Gather up bits of fabric & your favorite personable tags. Don't forget to include a wooden spoon or knife for spreading the love! Drop your cheerful jars off at your neighbors' doors right before they arrive home from work!
2. Coffee gift cards: There's nothing like free coffee, y'all. Purchase a handful of $5 gift cards from Starbucks or your favorite coffee shop & share them with your coworkers, momma friends & whomever else needs a little perk up!
3. Baking Kit: I created this baking kit last autumn for a girls' get-together at my home & I still love it to this day! Pull together your favorite baking mix & throw it in a cute mixing bowl with decorative ribbon & a seasonal tag (I love Lindsay's tags found right here)!
4. Yummy handsoap: If nothing else will calm the chaos, at the very least we can promise yummy smelling hand soap for our people. I am a Mrs. Meyer's junkie & their autumn scents are amazing! I'm excited to share that I am offering a fun little FREEBIE until October 16th (this Sunday!) - grab $30 worth of Mrs. Meyer's hand soap, spray & dish soap for FREE when ya spend $20 at Grove Collaborative. Click HERE for the details & click HERE to get your free goodies!
I've shared this freebie in years past & lots of ladies have stocked up for teachers' gifts, Christmas stocking stuffers & housewarming gifts. Why not stock up & share the goodness right now just because? Purchase a bouquet of grocery store blooms & add your Mrs. Meyer's freebies in a basket for a friend in need!
