I love surprises! When I was a child I loved being taken to the local school fete. Going to the fete was an event in itself; the rides, the games, the inevitable choir, band, or skipping troupe (yes, it was the 80’s) performance made for a fabulous day in itself. I especially loved the luck dip! Do you remember? The big barrels of little presents that you got to pick from – except they were all wrapped up and you didn’t know what was inside! At my school you weren’t even allowed to feel the present to try and guess. Not that I wanted to, I always loved the surprise. There was something so special about being able to take that little present and open it to reveal the contents…. to be honest, it didn’t really matter what was in them. The gift, for me, was the surprise itself.
That is one of the reasons why I don’t tell our subscribers what the theme for the upcoming months Sending Love box will be. It takes me back to the school fete, to that feeling of opening up your own special packet of wonder and delight. I want my customers to have the same feeling, the awe and wonder you get when being both surprised and delighted.
I love that some of my gorgeous customers buy the Sending Love box for themselves. They give themselves each month a special box of surprises, in this day where we are so busy pouring out into others I love that some women choose to look after themselves, what a gift of self love.
I also love that some of my customers have a special someone in their lives that they know needs a lift – and what better way than with a scrumptious surprise. I love hearing the stories of people who send boxes to their loved ones, there are so many of you with such big hearts that it makes my small one want to burst. The thoughtfulness that you show your friends and loved ones is something that keeps surprising me, each and every day and is one of the little surprises that makes role here at Sending Love so rewarding.
There is something exhilarating and liberating about surprises, don’t you think so? What is your favourite surprise?
