An idea for today’s Random Act of Kindness is to give a gift basket. Gift baskets do NOT have to be expensive. You can recycle a basket you have at your home or you don’t even have to use a basket. You can use a box, a gift bag, a recycle bag, a bucket, a flower pot, etc. Pinterest® app is filled with hundreds of gift basket ideas.
Some ideas could be:
*A baker’s gift basket filled with flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, chocolate chips and a spatula all given in a mixing bowl.
*A movie lover’s basket filled with a movie, bags of microwave popcorn, a couple of bottles of soda, and some candy. Add a $10 gift card for pizza if you choose.
*A relaxation basket filled with bath bombs ($2 from Target), lotion, candle and some chocolate.
*A golf basket filled with golf balls, a golf towel, some golf tees and some snacks.
*A dog lover’s basket filled with a leash, some dog treats, a toy and some “picker upper” bags.
*A tool man’s basket filled with screw drivers, measuring tape, hammer, and some snacks.
*For the pasta lover – a box filled with a favorite kind of pasta, spaghetti or alfredo sauce in a jar, parmesan cheese, a collapsible colander and a cookie mix.
You can make it as big or as small as you wish. Just an idea for a kindness act to make a difference to someone today. Have a great day as we change our world, one act of kindness at a time!
