Thinking Warm Holiday Thoughts

“Disclosure: I wrote this review while participating in an ambassador program by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of the Kleenex brand and received product samples and a promotional item to thank me for taking the time to participate but all opinions are my own.

With Christmas only 15 days away, have you taken the time to step back and appreciate the small things in life? We all know the saying, “It’s the thought that counts.” but are you taking the time to really incorporate that saying into your life? I have to say that there have been many times that others have reached out to me with a simple gift or a kind word and those gestures have meant more than words can say. One of those times was when I was on bed rest during one of my pregnancies, our family and friends would bring meals to us. They cleaned our house and took care of our kids while I was sick and my husband had to work. That kind of generosity is worth more than anything money can buy. It isn’t the kind of thing that can be repaid but instead needs to be paid forward.

 This holiday season, my kids decided to give our second Kleenex Care Package to their grandma who has been fighting a terrible cold! She hasn’t felt well for days and her voice sounds awful. My kids know that Kleenex is a great gift to give because it is so soft and the hand sanitizer and lip balm that are in the package will help their grandma as well. Zack helped me make some fudge a couple of days ago so they put some fudge into a small mason jar.

They added red and green ribbon to the jar and curled it with scissors.

Next, they tied more ribbon and a bell to a few packages of hot cocoa mix.

Here is the Care Package all ready to give to grandma!

Don’t forget that sharing a Kleenex tissue with someone in need is a small but kind gesture! Kleenex brand is giving consumers the opportunity to share a Kleenex Brand Care pack with someone who needs a little care, while supplies last! To participate, purchase a Kleenex brand bundle pack and redeem the code on the box by visiting Kleenex.com and following the instructions. You can learn more on the Kleenex Facebook page.
