It can be hard to find just the right gift, and sometimes a combination of things fits the bill. What is important is finding gifts that show your love and appreciation.
At Townley Pool and Spa, we have the joy of working in a business that caters to outdoor living. Because of this, everything we sell contributes in one way or another to your overall well-being.
Grills bring family and friends together to enjoy good times and great food. Hot tubs provide relaxation, stress relief, muscle and joint relief, peace, wellness, and extra family time
It’s important to balance our busy work lives with our “other” time. This may mean your family and your friends. There are many ways to achieve this work-life balance for yourself. But, did you know there are ways you can help others with their overall sense of well-being. This can be done simply by the gifts you give.
Let’s look at a few of those ways.
Send Someone a Note
Handwritten notes mean so much these days. If it’s a gift you’re needing, for Father’s Day or Mother’s Day, or a birthday, send a card in the mail. Take the time to pick out a meaningful card and write a special note.
You never know how much impact your card will have on someone’s overall sense of well-being.
And, you don’t have to wait for a special occasion to send a note or a card. You can send them just because, to catch up, or because you know someone is having a hard time in their life.
Your kindness goes a long way to helping someone else feel good.
Give Someone a Massage
We are always up for a massage. As a family of hot tubbers, you can find us soaking in the hot tub many times each week to relieve our aches and pains and enjoy the massage of the jets through warm water hydrotherapy.
What about those people you know who don’t have a hot tub? Perhaps it’s your next door neighbor who struggles with chronic back pain? Consider sending them a gift certificate for a massage.
If it’s a family member, offer to provide the massage yourself. For example, this makes a great gift for Father’s Day. Have your kids give dad a massage a week as a gift.
Of course, if you’re going to go all out, a hot tub is the perfect gift to show your love and appreciation!
Take a Meal
It’s tradition in many parts of the country to take meals to people who are housebound, just got out of the hospital, or lost a loved one.
You can also provide a meal for your friends and family just because. Here are a few ideas;
- Bring a healthy breakfast, lunch, or snack to work to share with your co-workers.
- Take a meal to a neighbor who may be lonely.
- Make dad dinner on Father’s Day or his birthday. Do the same for mom.
- Take a healthy dessert to your elderly friends and neighbors.
Be a Workout Partner
Are your family and friends struggling with their workout routine? It’s often easier to workout with the buddy system. Offer your friend or loved one a helping hand by offering to walk with them over their lunch hour or after work.
Have a pool? Considering offering them the use of it to swim laps. Or, if it’s your own family, establish a family workout hour.
Do you have a family member who is particularly stressed out? If you have a hot tub, offer to watch the kids while your spouse enjoys 15 uninterrupted, digital distraction free time in the hot tub.
You can do the same for friends, too. It’s amazing the benefits a short soak in a spa can do for the overall feeling of wellness and relaxation.
Think about and doing for others makes us feel good. In fact, it’s been said that the secret to happiness is in helping others and making them feel better. So, whether it’s Fathers’ Day, Mother’s Day, a birthday, special occasion, or just because, you have the power to give gifts that show love and appreciation that make people feel better every day.
