Oh say, can you see? It’s another Why We Gift Wednesday! Each week, we celebrate one of the thousands of reasons that we truly love giving. Whether it’s honoring the relationships that we have, feeling grateful for an occasion or a special time of year, or relishing life’s simple joys, Why We Gift Wednesday is all about giving and generosity – the expression of appreciation for life’s many happy moments. This Why We Gift Wednesday deserves an extra special salute – Happy Independence Day, everyone! What are you doing to honor our great nation and the stars & stripes today? Whether you’re headed out to the beach to play in the surf all day followed by a bonfire at night (don’t forget the s’mores), or you’re hosting a backyard barbecue complete with a slip n slide, sparklers and hot dogs, today is the day to relax, spend time with the people who matter the most and celebrate our freedom.
Are you getting together with neighbors today, or hosting a party at your own house? Maybe there’s someone in your neighborhood – a new family that’s moved in, or an elderly couple who don’t have community connections! Why not ask them to join your party? Everyone deserves to feel accepted, loved, connected and welcome. Think about how special you’d make someone feel if you just invited them over to join in your celebration of America the Beautiful!
The Fourth of July is also great excuse to give a delightful gift. Whether you’re sending a gift across the miles to your favorite patriot or thanking the hostess for her outstanding party planning skills, GiftTree’s Independence Day Gifts are filled with great gift ideas to honor the stars and stripes.
Fireworks, camping, fishing… What’s your favorite 4th of July memory?
