The Joy of Simple Giving

With the holidays upon us, it’s important to remember that sometimes gifts that cost nothing mean everything. The true spirit of the season is kindness and we can highlight it with gifts of time, energy and thoughtfulness. Here are a few of our favorite ways to show the people in your life how much you care.

Create a Memory

Lasting memories are based on events that have two kinds of intertwined characteristics: they are surprising in some way and they have strong emotional content. Create a new memory for the children in your family by planning an elaborate scavenger or treasure hunt for the holidays. Hide clues around the house and encourage everyone in the family to participate. The more you reinforce the event the longer it will be etched in your memory. Take plenty of photos and save them for a memory book to give next year.

Bring the Outside In

Why make a trip to the store when Tehaleh’s natural bounty provides a base for ornaments and other organic gifts: craft ornaments from pine cones, dried flowers, and fresh herbs or gather a basket of colorful fall leaves topped with flowers and fresh fruit for a lovely centerpiece. You’ll be stretching your creative muscles while creating a piece of art and knowing you’ve contributed to the health of the environment.

Delight and Surprise

Design a surprising experience for the children in your family by taking the time to write and perform a holiday play or plan a neighborhood treasure hunt and get the community involved! Create yearly anticipation by making this an annual tradition. Take plenty of photos and start a communal web folder for neighbors to add to. It’s these small, personal gestures that create a great community for kids and lifelong memories.

Think About the Feeling

Is there a busy person in your life who would appreciate a little TLC? How would they feel to walk into a newly cleaned home and freshly washed sheets? Maybe there is a senior in your neighborhood who would appreciate a friendly chat over hot tea or a slow stroll around the block appreciating the winter landscape? These moments are not only heart-warming for the recipients but equally memorable for you.

Creating a happy, thriving community is a priority in Tehaleh.
