Since we had a list posted for our kids with special needs, why not have one that we can send over to our friends and family with some ideas to help make your life a little bit easier, happier and even maybe- pampered!
I though about things that would make my day smoother and make me smile. It wasn’t easy, most of what I came up with, were things FOR the family- I really wanted to find things to take care of ourselves.
So, here goes; if you have some other thoughts, please feel free to send over.
- A gift card for a spa treatment.
- A gift card for a cleaning of the house
- A gift card to the book store
- A gift card to a local coffee shop
- A gift card to your favorite place to eat
- A gift card to the movies
- A gift card for a manicure
- A gift card to your favorite salon
For those that are worried about the costs attached to some of these, I have 2 options –
1- Your gift card does not have to be the value of the service/ item. Even if it is a portion, it will be one step closer to assuring you get it!
2- If spending money is not a possibility, friends and family can create certificates and provide the gift to you ! They can offer to babysit one nite or t hey can provide a meal for you. There are ways to give and receive that can and will make a difference!
Don’t be afraid to share this, sometimes all we need to do is let others know what we need, as we say so many times to one another- unless we say it, we can’t expect others to know it.
