What Does it Really Mean to Give This Holiday Season?

December 3, 2018

This time of year, it’s likely that many of us are busy running errands, buying gifts, and attending parties. The holidays are always bustling with catchy songs and that jolly old guy. It’s truly a wonderful time of year. However, the days seem to fly by when we get caught up in everything that must be done.

But, what would happen if we all slowed down just a little and took some time to think about what it means to give. Or even, to give back? It only takes a moment to brighten someone’s day. You can give with your time, attention, a kind word or action. Giving is small and big. It’s a lot of things. But it’s always personal and can make you feel amazing!

J.F. Kruse is in the jewelry business where we have the privileged opportunity to help people smile and sparkle every day – no matter the season. And we believe we have a responsibility to do more and give back to our community in Central Minnesota. Every year we find meaningful ways to do just that through our commitment to local causes and donations.

This holiday season, we would be honored if you decided to give a beautiful set of earrings or a statement watch from J.F. Kruse as a gift to someone. But, if you’re inspired to give back and feel amazing, here are five simple and easy ways to give back:

  1. Donate a toy or two.
  2. Drop your spare change in a red kettle.
  3. Shovel your neighbor’s driveways.
  4. Share a friendly smile.
  5. Pay for the person behind you at a drive-thru.

No matter if or how you choose to give, know that there is someone out there who will appreciate the gesture and the gift of giving.
