How to give someone a beautiful gift of gratitude...
Do you know that feeling when you've gotten someone the best gift EVER and you can't wait to give it to them?
I love that feeling.
I've given several of the following gratitude gifts out to the special people in my life, and I still hear from them, years later, how much these gifts have meant to them.
Each of these gifts is beautiful, inspiring, and will continue to bless the person receiving the gift from you for years to come.
All the gifts on this list are available online, at all different price points, so hopefully there's something here for everyone on your list.
Also, this might be my sneaky way of getting you to practice a little gratitude this year...:)
Gratitude Gift Idea #1:
Letters of Gratitude
This wonderful idea was given to me by my teacher friend, Josh.
Josh bought a hardcover copy of The Gratitude Jar: A Simple Guide to Creating Miracles to give to his grandmother and did something extra special with it:
He wrote a letter to his grandmother about why he was grateful for her, then tucked the letter inside the book for her to find while she was reading.
I mean, amazing right? I love that (and so did Josh's grandma).
And yes, the first gift idea on this list is that simple:
- Write someone a letter of gratitude, then tuck it inside a book about gratitude.
Here are some great gratitude books on Amazon you can do this gift idea with:
Gratitude Gift Idea #2:
This next one is super duper simple also:
- Give someone a Gratitude Jar, and fill it with little notes of gratitude to the person receiving it.
Here's where you can find some beautiful Gratitude Jars, in every price range:
$0-$20: Use a simple mason jar or other pretty container from your local home decor store. Or, find a unique jar online like this one from The Paper Store.
$50 And Up: For something custom, these incredible hand blown glass Gratitude Jars by artisan Rachel Masica are one-of-a-kind pieces of art.
PS: I wrote a post about how to write notes of gratitude if you need inspiration on what to write. Link to it here: The Love Jar: A Simple, Powerful Gratitude Practice for Couples
Gratitude Gift Idea #3:
The instructions for this gift are also very simple:
- Give someone a gratitude journal so they can start their own gratitude practice.
This is the most popular way to practice gratitude, and there are many beautiful gratitude journals for sale online that also make lovely gifts.
My favorite gratitude journal is the Give Thanks Gratitude Journal available here on Amazon.
It's filled with inspirational writing prompts and uplifting exercises around gratitude. Plus, it's really beautiful.
Whatever gratitude gift you decide to give, it will be cherished for many years to come.
