*Thank you to Bond for kindly sponsoring this post. All opinions are 100% honest & completely my own.
It's the most wonderful time of the year! Yes, the holidays are upon us, but it's also a time of year where we are most transparent about our feelings towards others. This includes showing gratitude. Gratitude is something that I try to use to center myself. It helps me internalize what I feel about others and share with them those feelings.
Not everyone is great at showing they are thankful, but I've listed below three surefire ways to let a loved one or friend know that you are thankful for them! You can do one of these, or do all of them. Either way, show some gratitude this season and be sure to reflect on what you're thankful for!
THREE WAYS TO SHOW YOU'RE THANKFUL
1. Cook and deliver a yummy, nutritious, and delicious meal with the recipe attached! (Because who doesn't love delicious food?!)
2. Offer to do something small and simple that you know the person isn't fond of. (Like taking out the garbabe, doing the dishes, or folding the laundry.)
3. Send a personalized, handwritten "Thinking of You" or "Thank You" or "Just Because" note with Bond. Cards are a great way to express how you're feeling without having to be eloquent in the moment. You can craft each sentence carefully to show how much you care without stumbling over your words.
Bond has exceeded my expectations as far as usability and organization! I sent three notes to loved ones and it was super quick! They also have an app that you can use to write personalized notes from your phone!
HOW IT WORKS: (DESKTOP)
First, you have to choose what kind of personalized note you would like to send. There are several options to choose from as far as customization. You can handpick the color of the card, the font, the signature, and pretty much everything! It makes it such a personal experience! The cards then get delivered 2-3 days after!
One of my personal favorites is the "Custom Image Card" that you can completely customize down to the cover (with an uploaded image)! Such a clever idea, right?
For my first note, I chose to write a "Happy Birthday" card to my sister since she turned nineteen this month. I loved the cursive fonts!
Another note I sent was a "gratitude" note. I wanted to show my Nana (she's my grandma, but I call her Nana) how much I love her and how thankful I am to have her with a "Just Because" note. I wrote her a sweet little message on the back of the card.
After all of my notes were finished, I added the recipient addresses and now I just wait for them to be sent out in just 2-3 days! I love that these sweet, little notes come to life and are delivered right to the person's doorstep on premium quality paper.
My third note was sent on my phone! I actually really liked using the mobile version of Bond and honestly see myself using that more often since I do everything from my phone these days! The steps are almost the same, but you have to be sure to download the app first!
HOW IT WORKS: (MOBILE)
First, you choose what kind of personalized note you would like to send. You simply type your note on the keyboard and it's super responsive! You can handpick the color of the card, the font, the signature, and pretty much everything in the mobile app too. Then you fill out the recipient address, and the cards then get delivered 2-3 days after!
Let me know if you decide to try Bond out! I had a blast sending some notes to my family and friends!
