Funky, Wacky Inspirational Calendar for Women

Every year for Christmas, my friend, Carol, gives me a Suzy Toronto’s inspirational wall calendar 12’x 12′. It has become my favorite annual gift!

suzy-toronto-2018-crazy-brave-wicked-strong-calendar-thoughtful-gift-ideaSuzy Toronto’s clever-creative-genius words of inspiration for women opens your thoughts to courage, strength, faith, conviction, pride, imagination, ideas, potential, vision, determination, focus… and I could go on and on.

One of my favorite quotes from the 2018 calendar is “Put on some lipstick before almost anything else – as if this would magically give me the strength and will power to tackle any obstacle in my path!”

Oh…this is sooo me!

Each month you read Suzy’s fun, delightful, healthy dose of inspiring words in story form to give the feeling of an “I can attitude” and a smile in your heart! Continue Reading

Bubble Calendar Gift Idea

Do you know someone who loves to pop bubble wrap? I have a unique gift that the bubble pop lover will enjoy every day because it doubles as a calendar.

bubble-calendar-wrap-thoughtful-gift-ideaThe Bubble Calendar is a 365 day poster-sized wall calendar with a bubble to pop every day of the year! It includes colored dots to mark birthdays, holidays and special occasions.

When we received items in the mail wrapped in bubble wrap, my kids would immediately place it on the floor and start jumping on it to hear all of the popping noise. Sometimes they would just sit and race each other to see how many they could quickly pop!

bubble-wrap-pop-calendar-thoughtful-gift-ideaWell… I have grown up friends who do the exact same thing.

Young or as I like to say… “slightly seasoned folks”…will love the Bubble Calendar. As the year pops by, you can still feel like a kid every day!

The Bubble Calendar is a fun gift to start off the New Year. It can also be given as a countdown to a special event like graduation or retirement.

We’re all mature until somebody brings out the bubble wrap.  – Unknown

 

Baby Growth Calendar Photos

- - $20 or Less, Baby Shower

Parents love to capture precious moments of their baby’s first year, especially how fast they grow every month. I have a unique, cute and easy photo idea for every month – a baby growth calendar!

My cousin took pictures of her baby girl with a large calendar desk pad. The photos consist of her baby lying on top of the calendar every month of her first year.

I’m sure it was easy at first but took several takes to get the photos just right when she started rolling or crawling. It’s all about creating memories, right?

She would write on the calendar 1st month, 2nd month and so on. This made for the most adorable baby pictures. Continue Reading

What Gift Should You Get for Someone With Cancer?

- - Get Well

I was diagnosed with breast cancer February 27, 2015. No, I did not smoke. No, breast cancer does not run in my family. As a matter-of-fact there has never been any cancer in my family, period!

Love the inspirational quotes & beautiful calendar to keep track of dr. appts.

I slowly began to tell family, friends and co-workers as I learned about my cancer, surgery and treatment. After the initial shock, everyone moved in orchestrated concert to give me their support. It was amazing!

I didn’t know what I needed but each phone call, text, video get well message, get well card, candy, hug, calendar, quote on canvas, journal and flowers were gifts that made me smile.

My co-workers immediately took over my duties and assured me they would handle it. They said, “Get well and don’t worry.”

My high school best friend took off from work and drove 2.5 hours to spend the day and take me to lunch. It had been years since we spent that much time together. It was like going back in time when we would talk non-stop about everything!

The print on my iPhone is so large that only one or two words appear at a time per line. My younger friends have difficulty reading it that way but oh… how it make it so much easier to read my texts!

What if you have macular degeneration? Think of how difficult it would be to do everyday tasks and the frustration of not seeing clearly. This is the world in which my 91 year old step-father lives.

So for the past several Christmases, I have given him a large print At a Glance Calendar. He hangs it in his kitchen where he can easily see it. What a difference it has made! Continue Reading

Write sweet message and place it into your child’s lunch box for them to find.

Whether your student is going to school for the first time or in their last year of elementary school, bringing lunch in a cool lunch box is often preferred. There are lunch boxes for every personality and style.

The best part of opening a cool lunch box is to see a Post-It note message from a parent that say things like: “You Rock!”, “Have a Happy Day!”, “You are my favorite 1st/2nd/ 3rd, grader!”,  “I’m proud of you!”, “You’re Awesome!”, “You make me smile!”, “You’re one smart cookie!” and “I Love You!”

The messages are endless. A simple note letting your child know how important they are and that you’re thinking of them will certainly make their day. Continue Reading

Thoughtful Business Appreciation Gift – Calendar

- - Business, Host, Thank You

Appreciation. The dictionary defines appreciation as gratitude and thankful recognition. Recently my boss was selected to be on a national executive committee and yet I was the one being recognized. What a wonderful surprise when an envelope arrived at the office for ME! It truly made my day!

My counterpart in the national organization in Washington, D.C. sent me a lovely See America and our National Parks calendar as an appreciation gift.

In all of my working years, I have never received a gift from an organization that my boss served on so this was quite a memorable surprise. The note was very thoughtful too!

Just a token in advance of my appreciation for our work together in the coming year with Dennis on NCSHA’s Executive Committee.

Best,
Cary

A thoughtful business appreciation gift for work I had yet to do. Now, that is unique!

This is going to be one of those “pass it forward” ideas to use not only within my own work place, but with others who work in other organizations when I want to show my appreciation for their help – whether in advance or afterwards!

Thank you, Cary! Your thoughtful, heartful gift of appreciation is the best!

We must stop and thank the people who make a difference in our lives.  – John F. Kennedy
