Little Gifts of Thanks

by Dani (PIP summer intern)

Every once in a while, each of us goes through a stage or phase where as much as we hate to, we need to rely on the kindness of friends, family, and even strangers to help us out.  Sometimes we are home bound and a friend will run to the grocery store for us.  Other times, we need someone to take us to the doctor's office,  pick our children up from school, or just be there with a heartfelt hug.  It seems insensitive,  verging on insulting to offer a “too big” gift as a thank you, but a little token of thanks is thoughtful, sweet, and absolutely appropriate.  Our suggestion is that if, and when, you are finding yourself relying on the kindness of others, consider stocking up on small gifts that you can keep in a basket and give when the moment moves you.  Surprisingly, it has been hard to find the perfect token gifts of appreciation  but here are a few of our favorites.  Keep checking back because as we come across “little somethings” we will add them here.

Hint:  Items that come bundled but are packed attractively, individually, can easily be broken up into smaller gifts.  Instead of giving a pack of 24 soaps, give just one or tie 3 together with personalized ribbon!

Plus never forget another birthday, anniversary, mother's day, father's day, graduation, holiday, or other greeting card occasion with Tiny Prints calendar reminder feature!


Take the Dare, Show you Care


For years, I have admired the thoughtfulness  of my good friend Carolyn and my great Aunt Libby – two amazing people who, year in and year out, always send the perfect card for every single occasion.  I could never figure out how they managed to keep it all organized, and I am a pretty organized person.  So starting today  I personally have signed up for Tiny Prints new greeting card store free trial.  Now I just need to get myself organized enough to enter all my family and friends' birthdays and anniversaries  into Tiny Prints calendar reminder feature!

I challenge all of you to do the same.  In fact, if you do Take the Dare, Show you Care Challenge and sign up for Tiny Prints new greeting card store free trial, leave a comment.  We would love to hear your story but a simple “I did it” is great, too.

Marcia's Story

I like to think of myself as a thoughtful person but if I am honest with myself, much of my thoughtfulness is just that … thinking about being thoughtful.  Just in the last few months, both my friends Vicki and Karen lost their family dogs.  They were heart broken and I knew it.  For weeks I thought about sending a card but never seemed to get around to buying one.  Eventually too much time passed.  Yet another instance of thoughtfulness without thoughtful action.

Woulda Coulda Shoulda

All I woulda needed to do was sign on toTiny Prints sympathy card selection and with a simple click of a button coulda ordered and mailed both Vicki and Karen one of these perfect cards designed to offer comfort and to help celebrate the life of their much-loved companion.  My new resolution — no more shoulda‘s!
