As the weather gets gloomier and the days are shorter and dark, many people experience a period of sadness or seasonal depression. This time of year is hard on many, and when this combines with a period of grief, illness or stress it can be very difficult.
If you have a friend or a loved one who is going through a hard time, here is a list of meaningful gifts that are perfect for raising their spirits and cheering them up.
- Colouring books for adults – No, this is not a joke – adults can benefit from colouring, too! Mindfulness colouring books (such as the brilliant Art Therapy Colouring Book) have recently taken off in popularity, and they can help someone feel calm and relaxing while indulging their creativity.
- A DIY care package – Creating a customised gift basket filled with yummy treats, healthy supplements, pretty little gifts and an uplifting card can really help someone feel appreciated and loved – a great way to cheer them up.
- A meaningful photo gift – A 3D photo crystal is a lovely way to cheer up your friend or loved one. Consider choosing a treasured photo of your child, pet or a happy memory and having it turned into one of these breathtaking gifts.
- A video message – Someone who is feeling really blue might not be up for a lengthy conversation on the telephone or in person – consider sending them a lovely video telling them how much they mean to you.
