This month’s Uplifting giveaway is…
A $25 Amazon gift card!
In the spirit of Thanksgiving and the upcoming holidays, we want to share a small gift of appreciation to one of you. You can use this gift card however you want – here are a few ideas:
- Purchase a Christmas gift for a loved one.
- Do a random act of kindness.
- Buy something to pamper yourself – cozy socks, a relaxing CD, an uplifting book, or a favorite food.
- Re-gift to a family member, friend, or stranger.

While we’re on the topic of Thanksgiving, we would love to hear what your gratitude traditions are! Do you do something special for the month of November? Or is gratitude a regular part of your life year-round?
I’m somewhere in the middle. I struggle with consistency, so I’ll go through periods of writing in a gratitude journal, and other phases where I don’t do so hot. But every year during the month of November, our family does a Thankful Tree. I cut out lots of construction-paper-leaves in Fall colors, and each night our family goes around the dinner table and says something they are grateful for, then we write it on a leaf and stick it to the wall or string it along a piece of twine.
This year, I discovered a darling Deeds of Gratitude kit from New Tradition Crafts. The leaves are made of wood and have holes punched so you can string them along your mantle or up on the wall. It comes with an erasable marker so you can use the leaves year after year.
One thing I love about this kit is that you write something you’re grateful for on one side, and what you will do to show your gratitude on the other! I have been pleasantly surprised with how well our kids have caught on, they have given suggestions like “I’m grateful for my family, so I will be kind” and, “I’m grateful for my home so I’ll clean up after myself.”
I already have my eye on the 25 Days of Christ kit as well, I love finding new, meaningful, and uplifting traditions for my family!
Love this! I would use a card for gifts for the kids!
Always fun to have extra money to spend on the kids!
Such a fun and thoughtful giveaway! I would use the money to buy my sister who’s on a mission in Germany a Christmas present – sent from the German Amazon site!
My children and I made our own little service project for this Christmas- “Socks for Santa”. We have been working on it since the first of October. Santa will pick up all the socks when he comes to visit our home and give the socks to those in need during his travels (I will take them to the homeless shelter near us). We try to buy a pair each time we go shopping. I would use the gift card to help in this project!
Wow Taryn, I love this idea and how it changes the focus of Christmas from receiving to giving. I just might copy it – thanks for sharing!
