With all the horrible things currently happening in the world, it’s a perfect time to hug your loved ones a little tighter and make sure that the people you love know how much you appreciate them. Send a card, give them a call, or make them a sweet gift to let them know you care.
I think sometimes it’s easy to forget that you have really quality people in your life. Your daily life takes over, stress rears its ugly head, and you just get overwhelmed. Instead of taking those time for granted, it is then that you should look around and see who is standing right in front of you. Who is the person asking how you are feeling? Who is the person calling to see what you’re up to? It may be a sibling, a parent, or a close friend. It may be the barista at Starbucks or your slightly overbearing co-worker. It may be a neighbor or the cashier at In N Out (who I may or may not know by name). But someone is there. Someone cares. Don’t look past the ‘ordinary’ people in your life. Don’t look for more. Take what you have right now and cherish it.
With that in mind, I wanted to put together a gift basket for a friend of mine. In recent months I’ve taken a notice in just how much she cares, how much she puts her own life on hold for her friends that need her. It wasn’t always something she did for me, it’s just been easy to see all the things she’s doing for her friends that she cherishes. With that in mind, I wanted to do something for her. I couldn’t let her go unnoticed now could I?
So since she’s such a peach, I put together a little peach gift basket. It wasn’t easy. You try finding a bunch of peach stuff in one afternoon. It’s harder than you’d guess. Here are some sample ideas for a peach gift basket:
Peach Drinks (Iced Tea, Juice)
Peach Candy (Haribo makes Peaches!)
Peach colored gifts: Anything you can find!
Peach fruit cups
Have something that your recipient loves, but isn’t peach related? Get some peach construction paper, tape it around the product, and adhere a little peach to the front. See my Red Bull can above.
Need to make a gift, but nothing as extravagant as a whole basket (or just don’t have the time?)? Print out the tags and tie them to something peachy!
