Give-Love-Serve: June Gift Ideas for Serving Others
Every month we share an idea on how to express care, compassion and love to those that the Lord wants us to reach. We get the ideas from our friend, Irene Delano, and this past January's event, Gift-Giving 101. This month, since so many take to the road for their family vacations or family reunions we gladly bring you the ROAD TRIP BAG! What a great way to bless your neighbor, family, co-worker or friend!
First, purchase a fun bag for all the road trip goodies. We suggest a re-usable bag that they can use for souvenirs and such while on their trip and other handy uses once they get home.
Here are some suggestions from Irene of things to fill your bag:
- Wet Wipes
- water bottles
- spicy pretzels (or other snacks that won’t melt)
Here are additional ideas to add to the bag:
- magazines or books
- gum or mints
- travel size games
- sunscreen and/or hand lotion
- your favorite lip balm
- drink mix to add to the water bottles
Consider adding a note of well wishes & safe travels, along with a reminder that you are praying for their time to be joy-filled and safe.
I believe expressing genuine interest in others is the first open door to an open heart for God. We would love to hear ideas that you have for developing meaningful relationships with others.
In His Love,
