Simple Ways to "Give" this Holiday Season

Hey cupcakes! I hope everyone had a marvelous Christmas with friends and family! 😊 As you might have noticed, I didn't post on Monday as I was spending some quality time at home with some people I haven't seen in awhile... But don't worry, I have lots of great posts in store for you all! In celebration of the holiday season, I wanted to share my favorite ways to give and be generous during this special time of year for this post today. Let's jump right into it!


1. Volunteer your time - Help out your community by volunteering at a warming shelter, serving/cooking food at a soup kitchen/homeless shelter, or utilizing your talents to help with a church nativity production. Volunteering is an easy, and fun, way to help those around you! 💖

2. Donate to the Salvation Army bell ringers - They stand in front of many major stores and all of the bell ringers are volunteers. If you don't want to volunteer yourself, consider donating all of your extra coins! I've written a whole post about why the Salvation Army is the best thrift store, so I always try to give to them during the holidays.

3. Do some winter cleaning - I know that spring cleaning is a thing, but try winter cleaning also! Now that new items have entered your life from Santa, family, friends, etc, consider sorting through some things to get rid of the old. Donate the things you don't need anymore to a thrift store, homeless shelter, church, etc.

4. Carol at a nursing home - Some nursing homes are just really sad during the holidays... So cheer up some elderly folks by caroling there with some friends! 🎶 From personal experience, this is super fun (and it doesn't even matter if you sound good haha).


5. "Give" kindness - Write thank you letters to people you haven't thanked in awhile, put nice notes in people's mailboxes that have great holiday lights/decorations, or bake cookies for your neighbors. Giving during the holidays can be as simple as that!
