SPREAD THE LOVE: 5 WAYS TO PAY IT TO FORWARD THIS MONTH

Social distancing takes its toll on all of us. Reach out and let your neighbors, friends, and family know how much you care, especially now when it matters most. Here are our top five ways to spread the love … no matter the distance.

1. Surprise neighbors (and strangers) with a smile.

Your smile shines through your eyes (even when wearing a mask). When you smile just because, it's the most pleasant surprise and a powerful boost of kindness that can make all the difference to those around you. Now more than ever, we all need positive social signals to keep us going. Smiling also boosts your mood too!

2. Send some snail mail love.

Write a simple, heartfelt note or letter on personalized stationery to brighten someone’s day. They’ll appreciate your thoughtful words and save your beautiful stationery to reread whenever they need to be reminded that they are loved. Such letters and cards are treasured more and more. Never underestimate the delight of surprise snail mail!

3. Show you care with a care package.

Have you ever received a care package that came just when you needed it? It’s the best feeling! Bonus: the act of giving can actually boost your mental and physical health too! That means giving and receiving thoughtful gifts has a double health-boosting effect! Spread the love with these pretty, practical, essential gift bundles you and your loved ones will actually use (and love)!

4. Share the love with a love book.

Guided journals like our Share The Love Journal are perfect for memorializing your fondest memories with a loved one and counting all the ways you love, admire, and appreciate them. Gift your best friend, favorite family member, or significant other a love book. It’s a beautiful keepsake book they’ll treasure forever.

5. Spread the love and pay it forward with gifts that give back.

Discover beautiful organization essentials, accessories, and more for you and your loved ones that support worthy causes and keep the love flowing.
