5 Day Brighteners
Whether for a special day, like a holiday or birthday, or just for fun, giving someone a day brightener can let them know that you are thinking about them, you appreciate them and you care about them.
Here are 5 day brighteners to get you started. And the best news? You can do any of these for less than $20. Even better in our current times, these are great for porch drops, deliveries and other ways to connect while being physically distant.
The cliche exists for a reason – there is just something about a freshly cut bouquet- or perky potted plant – that just makes you smile. Flower sales soared in 2020 as more people spent more time at home.
Flowers will continue to brighten days long after our current health crisis has subsided.
A nice bottle of wine is another winner. But how about if it’s not just any wine, but wine for a cause? At One Hope, there are red, white and rose options available starting at just $20, like this food-friendly riesling.
You can also shop for delicious – and budget-friendly wines at Trader Joe’s, or your local wine shop. The possibilities are great, once you start looking!
If your recipient has a sweet tooth, consider the gift of chocolate. I’m a California girl at heart, so I lean toward Scharffen Berger or See’s. But no matter where you live, you can find high-quality chocolate options that are sure to please!
Coffee – or Tea!
For some people this is a non-negotiable to start a day – so Cusa Coffee (or tea!) is both a day starter AND a day brightener- doesn’t get much better than that!
A Mani/Pedi from Color Street: $20 will get you 1-2 sets of Color Street, (depending on if how you take advantage of our ongoing specials) These nail polish strips can be applied to fingers and toes in just a few minutes. Color Street Nail Polish Strips go with every outfit, fit users of all sizes and make it easy to have beautiful nails! And nail polish, unlike any other beauty product is something your lucky recipient (or you!) can enjoy the whole time you are wearing it – not just when they get a peek in a mirror.
