Here’s a great idea for showing appreciation:

A gratitude box is a wonderful gift to make for someone. Sandra Magsamen says all you have to do is write things you appreciate about someone on slips of paper. You can write things like, “I am grateful for your…smile, the sound of our voice, your hugs, etc.”

You can write as many “gratitudes” as you feel in your heart and place them in a little box or a velvet bag. Then, present it as a unique and heartfelt gift of appreciation and love.

Another idea is to write down everyday one thing that you are grateful for on a slip of paper and ‘post’ them in the box. You can get your whole family to participate. Open the box on a mutually agreed date and read the slips out loud. It’s makes a great add to a family occasion and a good reminder of all the gifts we enjoy.
