Christmas will soon be upon us. Unlike Christmases from the past, it will be a different type of celebration for all of us. Instead of dwelling on the fact that we can't be with many family members or friends, I would like to remind everyone of the old days when #Christmas was a time of reflection and love.
At one time or another, we have all said that #Christmas has become so commercial, This year is giving us a reason and the time to scale back to the days of old, when neighbours would help each other and gifts were made from the heart.
With kids out of school, more people working from home, things can get very hectic and stressful. This year make the time to sit with your children and make a craft or cook together and give a homemade present that comes from the heart. Here are some things to get the kids busy with gifts for grandparents, elderly neighbours or family.
-Tea Light snowmen
-Cookies with lots of sprinkles
-Mugs with hot chocolate and marshmallows decorated with bells and bows
-Handmade Christmas cards
If you are not a crafty person, and you would like to shop for someone special on your list, there are local shops that would love to help you with your gifting ideas. Shopping local helps support your community.
You could take all the items if you choose and put them into a basket with pretty paper.
I plan on dropping off baskets to neighbours front doors with a hand written Christmas note. Sending out packages filled with a little extra love this season, will help brighten this Christmas season.
It doesn't need to be complicated or expensive, it's the thought that counts and plus you will be making memories with the ones close to you.
For elderly people that have pretty much everything they need, #TomorrowTodayAyr offers many services, that you can prebook for them or we would be happy to issue a beautiful gift certificate for them to use at their convenience. We are also offering a cleaning special for anyone that could use an extra hand getting ready for the holidays, cleaning up after the holidays or just enjoys a clean home. If you book before Jan 1st, you will receive 20% off and a free gift basket. What a great deal to help your family members, loved ones or even yourself.
The Team from #TomorrowTodayAyr would like to wish you health and happiness this Christmas and New Year.
