Definitely want to do something for our dear neighbors who have shown such great kindness to our family. I would love for you to share more practical ideas for gifts to give… I am not always best at thinking creatively of what to give.
Day Three was ALL SMILES #12DaysofChristmasKindness #ListenLoveRepeat The Matron of Honor in our wedding received a box of donuts to share with her hubby. We also gifted her with a card to a store in our community that has a bakery. This gal has been with us for every season of our lives and we call her our ANGEL here on earth from God. Thank You Karen Ehman and Jill Savage for Day 3 of Spreading God’s love to others. You ladies both really SHINE for Jesus.
My son tonight said “mom, did you know it’s better to give than receive?” I love the printable cards and will share with him to think who needs them. Also I’m going to go back and doing each days idea with him! I love this!

Love these ideas! I like leaving surprise treats on my coworkers desks or picking up a Starbucks unexpectedly!
Love this idea!
Love this idea!
What a wonderful idea! I love this.
I know just what to do for day three…baklava for a coworker ?
Wow! What a great reaction from my mail carrier! She is super sweet and so busy these days, she deserved a gift card to thank her!
I bought an ornament in memory of the baby my sis in law just miscarried. Hoping it gives light in this dark time!
Kind and sweet neighbor, here we come!
We always deliver a bag of candy to our neighbors at Christmas rather than picking one. This year our list is 14 bags of M&Ms long! We always attach a tag with our names and address and Christmas greetings. It is really helping us get to know our neighbors!
I love the idea of appreciating those around you. Thank you for the fun printables. I can’t wait to use them for the people around me.
I love this idea! This gives the gift of love to the recipient and also benefits the local bakery who may just get a new repeat customer. Sometimes the people who mean the most in our life and are the sweetest people imaginable, do not think of treating themselves or doing something sweet for themselves. With prompting, we are to open their eyes to how valued they are to us and to God,
Loving this! Today I purchased a small bakery gift card for my best friend and taped to her door. I hope she knows how special she is to me. I love this on purpose reminder to myself to take a minute and let the people close to me know how much I love them!
Love the graphics cards for today! How motivating to share a gift card I have that I will probably not use. ?
What a great idea. I could drop a little something off at my new neighbors houses through the month to bring a little Christmas cheer.
Since I’m still recuperating I sent sugar free cookies mail order to my mother-in-law today with a note that told her that she brings sweetness to my life!
Thank you for helping us to reach out to others.
Love these ideas! I used to do better with the neighborhood, but, not so much anymore! :(
Love the idea and thank you for including the printable cards to go with them!
Oh my, what a great idea!
What a sweet idea! <3
Another great idea!! I love doing little things for others, but sometimes get overwhelmed with what to do. I love this challenge because it helps me to focus on one person at a time. And just think, it never has to stop! Christmas is always a fun time to do something special, but what about next month or the next! I want to plan my own challenges throughout the year. This and your book are going to help me plan it out!! You, Karen, deserve all the sweets! Blessings!!!
