1. Take cookies to your local fire and police departments

Firemen and policemen put their lives on the line every day to keep you safe. Show your appreciation by taking them a large batch of cookies.

2. Send armed forced abroad a care package

Our military fights for you, me, and our country. Send cookies or other carepackage goods to our troops overseas. Contact a local organization or visit TreatTheTroops.org.

3. Give thanks to people who make your life easier

Sit down and write a list of all the people you encounter whose job is to make your life easier. Doctors, nurses, teachers, waiters, chefs, babysitters, hair cutters, front desk staff at the gym, the list goes on. Pick up a pack of thank you cards and give them out to the people that are too often taken for granted.

4. Give the gift of live plants

Show your thanks to people who have shown you acts of kindness. Remember the family member, friend, neighbor, co-worker or other person just happened to say or do the right thing at the right time to lift your spirits? Now is the time to give them a gift that keeps on thanking. A live potted plant, herb, or flower will remind them daily of your gratitude.

Don’t let Thanksgiving be the only time of year you feel compelled to give thanks. Put acts of gratitude on your want-to-do list year round.
