Now let’s go scatter some Christmas kindness and be sure to come back tomorrow!
I baked some homemade sweets, and passed them on! Definitely one of my favorite acts of kindness!
Left a bag of treats, tea, and hot chocolate for our neighbor! My youngest helped, and she was so excited to do it! She watched their porch to see if they got it, and told her sister all the details!
Great idea! Looking forward to doing this one!
I am going to bring some sweets to my oh so sweet neighbors.
I thought and thought about who I wanted to sprinkle with some Christmas kindness on this day and it pushed me to do something for someone that I had been praying for and thinking about for sometime. My kids go to the same school as a girl whose mother was diagnosed with cancer back in June. I didn’t know her at all at the time but after hearing the news I added her to my prayer list. By chance, I have ran into her a handful of times and made small talk. On top of having cancer she is a single mom so this touched me even more because I was raised by a single mom. I splurged….I bought her a massage to a local spa and some fudge in a gift bag and left it on her front door with an anonymous note! She may always wonder who left it for her but sometimes it is just heartwarming to know others thought of you and are praying for you!
I am a couple days late but working through the list. We are giving sweets to the local librarians today. They serve us all year so well as home schoolers! :)
Planning on taking goodies to neighbors this weekend. Thank you for the cards to help with the presentation. :)
I handed out boxes of candy to all the greeters at church
I am using the cards. Merry Christmas everyone
Perfect for the receptionist at ds school!
We must moved to the Dallas, TX area… so this will give me an opportunity to search around for a nice bakery in our new neighborhood.
What a great idea, now what bakery to chose
Thinking of ways to scatter kindness….
This is great!!! I look forward to seeing these each day!!! Thanks for helping us scatter kindness with such straight forward and easy ideas. I did do this on Monday. I am working with 2 men who are here in US on short term assignment from India. They have become very special to me and I gave them a bag of different chocolates from the US.
I’ve really been inspired by the 12 days of kindness…
I will plan on making some easy pretzel cookies and deliver them with our Christmas cards to our neighbors.
Took some chocolates to our awesome across-the-street neighbor! So fun.
This is perfect. My coworker does not have much family and does not really like the Christmas season. Maybe this will cheer her up. Just not going to let her know its from me.
I love the idea of sharing kindness and Hearts at Home. I think my gift card maybe Starbucks and I know just who I want to share it with.
Loving all these ideas!!
Everyone loves a sweet treat. :)
