Happy Holidays from your Employee Resource Advocate!
The holidays are a time to celebrate and enjoy the company of loved ones. Everyone celebrates differently with unique traditions that create special memories. While you’re celebrating this year, remember that this time of year can sometimes be difficult for some of our friends as they think back to loved ones no longer with us, or times that weren’t so happy in their lives.
Do you have holiday traditions?
It’s important to show your friends and loved ones you care and to create new special memories and traditions with them. Gift giving is a very popular tradition around this time of year, but with so many friends, it can sometimes be hard to give all the gifts you would like. With the holidays quickly approaching, I wanted to provide a few gift ideas that you can make at home or with friends!
- Paint your own jars to use as candle holders.
- Make your own holiday sweet treats.
- Use festive fabrics to create your own holiday dish towels. Tie them up with string instead of wrapping!
- Make your own snowflake drink coasters out of pipe cleaners.
The best gift of all?
There are many easy gift ideas to make your gift giving a little easier this year. Remember, gifts are not what makes the holidays special. Spending time with the ones you love is all that matters this time of year.
