|A set of these cards that I gave away last year|
Every year for the last few, Ashley at Under the Sycamore has offered a free download of these Best of My Days cards. Briefly, they are like mini-journals for each month where you jot down one great thing, or blessing, if you will, that happened each day. Last year I gave a few sets of these as gifts and people really liked them. I don't know how much men would go for them, but for women friends and teenage girls they were a successful gift. Even busy young moms who could never find time to journal can often find a moment to jot down a phrase or sentence.
As you will see when you go to Ashley's blog, the fun of gifting these is in the decorating and embellishing of wrapping them up. I tend to take the easy way and use gift wrap or other paper items (the scene above is from the front of a church bulletin), but Ashley gets really, really creative. You will be inspired. Hope this idea is a help to someone!
