Share Happiness!

National Cookie Day is tomorrow, November 30, and the Holiday season is sneaking up on us. Let’s talk about how we can turn cookies into a daily give! The holidays can be a stressful time, so what better way to relax than to make treats for yourself and your loved ones? Turn your holiday stress into a happiness by using these homemade cookies for your daily give.

So here’s the plan for a great give. Use National Cookie Day as your motivation to give. It is a great day to complete a small act of kindness that creates beautiful memories – with your mom, your dad, a friend or a partner. You can even host a baking night with a group and search for fun cookie recipes to try (my favourite place to find recipes is Pinterest). Baking with others not only makes the experience more fun and creative, but you will also be able to spend time with those who are important to you before the holidays.

Caution, you just may be tempted to eat your scrumptious creations yourselves – but these cookies are destined for a much bigger job, your daily give. Bring cookies to your school, office, to other friends or to family members. Everyone loves sweet treats, so share your cookies with others! ONe of our favourite gives to bring our homemade treats to the local police department, fire station or give them to the parking enforcement officers. Saying thank you for their daily service with is the perfect give with homemade treats.

The best part about cookies as your daily give. They don’t need to be shared for any specific reason. You can just give them to anyone you choose. We have even sent them in the mail, anonymously left them around work or school for people to enjoy. Use this daily give as a way turn around someone’s day or simply to put a smile on someone else’s face. Smiles are guaranteed, and happiness will happen!
