Every Day Gifting

Giving a little something to a friend or neighbor is something you can do regularly, with no planning or shopping.  Yesterday was one of my neighbor's birthdays and I remembered she loves the salted caramels she had at my house recently, so I packaged a few up in a little box and took them to her house.

This morning I dropped a bag of fresh picked blueberries at another neighbor's house.  Maggie and I picked more than we would ever need and I know my friend's kids like them.

I usually have some cookie dough frozen so when a friend is needing a little pick-me-up I can quickly bake a few and drop them off to her, or invite her over for a little snack and chat.

Small gestures go along way.
