Snuggle up on the sofa with a cup of tea and enjoy writing letters of gratitude to your nearest and dearest.
Gratitude is a feeling of deep appreciation and thankfulness, often towards a person or higher power. As well as making the receiver of your gratitude feel good, there are also many benefits to you, such as improvements to your physical health and self-esteem, and better sleep.
There are five origami folded keepsake letters inside the box. The inside of each letter is blank. Each letter has a prompt on the outside, to help you decide who to write the letter to. The prompts are:
- From my childhood
- A family member
- A friend
- An inspiration
- A mentor
Open the letters and write letters of gratitude. Think about things such as how you know the person, what special qualities they have, how they have helped you, what special moments you have shared together or the impact they have had on your life. Don't forget to say 'Thank you'!
You can share the completed letters or keep them private, it's up to you.
The top of the box can either feature the phrase 'Letters to say THANK YOU for making me, me' or 'Letters to say THANK YOU for being in my life'.
Each letter is folded from a single sheet of paper which is slightly smaller than A5.
There is also an instruction sheet to help you fold back up the letters after you have written them, although it is very easy!
If the box is difficult to open, please gently slide a ruler (or something similar) under the lid (from the side) and slowly ease the lid open.
Inside the cardboard box, the five letters are made from thick white paper and they are tied with silvery-grey organza ribbon.
The box measures 10.2 x 7.8 x 2.8cm and each letter is approximately 10.1 x 7.4cm when folded up. When opened, each letter is just slightly smaller than A5.
