During the holidays, I get so wrapped up in buying for others that I often overlook the people who give extra every day. This year, I am intent on giving a little extra to those people through one simple act of kindness.
And don’t miss the free printable cards available below!
Don’t these 5 people during the holidays
Your Child’s Teacher
Visit your child’s school with a basket of Extra gum and one of the free printable cards (below) to leave in the teacher’s lounge.
Just a small gesture can create a smile on a very stressful day… not to mention fresher breath.
Your Mail Person
How many times has your mail person had to leave the warmth of his or her vehicle to bring packages to your doorstep?
Reward all those added steps with a package of Extra gum and a small “thank you” note. Mail carriers are not allowed to receive gifts of money or gift cards, but gum is always welcomed.
We recently were able to leave a waitress a larger than normal tip, and it surprised her so much that she chased us to the parking lot to thank us.
Perhaps you cannot leave a 100% tip but keeping new packages of Extra gum in your purse or pocket will give you the opportunity to go just a little bit further than what is average.
Remember those days when you and your spouse used to leave surprises for one another around the house?
Have fun this Christmas with your loved one by leaving unexpected Extra in places where you know he or she will find it. They will be sure to thank you later… when the kids are dreaming of sugarplums.
I personally find chewing gum relaxing, especially during intense moments. Plus, I keep a pack in the kitchen for when cravings strike and in the car for freshening my breath after meals on the go.
It’s a little Extra-something that can brighten my day.
