Gift Guide: Random Kindness

Gift Guide: Random Kindness


Blogger: Michelle Blan (

Have you ever met one who seems to have it all together? They walk through life always appearing calm and confident - while never, ever miss an opportunity to send a gift to make someone feel good.

The rest of us sit back and watch… thinking, why didn’t I think of that? Or, I wish I had more time to be so well-prepared. Or even I wish I was like them.

Want to know a secret? You can be one of those people, too. You must know where to turn to find precisely what you are looking for - in a convenient manner—of course, having some ideas in mind when you need to grab a gift helps, too. So, we’ve put together a list of a few things that can make that happen.

Gifts That Are Random and Kind

You have undoubtedly heard stories of customers paying it forward in line at a coffee shop, or maybe you have received a special treat in the mail with a note encouraging you to keep doing what you’re doing.

Whether random and anonymous or a kind, unexpected gesture, these small gifts can change a life. They can take a bad day and turn it into a great one. They also could make someone feel seen. They are intentional, unexpected, and say, hey, I’m thinking of you, without saying anything at all.

Here are a few ideas:

A Candle and Notebook Combo. This lovely mylar silver decor pillar candle holder with a notebook that says, "The Best is Yet to Come," works beautifully to let someone know they matter.

Wooden Salt Bamboo Box. Engraved with “For Everything, There Is a Season,” this salt box is excellent for those who love to cook or those who need a reminder that this, too, shall pass. Sometimes life gets tough, and a simple, kind gesture is all that is required to regain perspective.

Essential Foot Care Assortment. Everybody deserves the opportunity to relax. It doesn’t matter who they are, how old they are, or what they do for a living. Letting the stress of life dissipate from the toes is something that everyone can enjoy.

These are just a few ideas of so many that you can send someone out of the blue or order to have on hand when you want to pass on feel-good feelings to a stranger randomly.

Gifts of Acknowledgement

Think about the last time someone gave you a gift just because. Not for the holidays or a birthday - but because they wanted you to know that you were appreciated, that you did a good job, or as a thank you for helping when you didn’t have to.

How did that make you feel?

You have the power to offer that to someone else. It could be a friend, a colleague, or even a neighbor or acquaintance.

The next time you want to acknowledge someone for one reason or another, do it with a small gift. Go above and beyond a simple spoken, good job or thank you. Try one of these:

A Candy Cube. Everyone has a sweet tooth. And who doesn't love chocolate? Send some sugary goodness to someone who deserves it just for being them. It’s sure to bring a smile. Although, if you are of the go big or go home mentality, a giant assorted candy and snacks box works great, too.

Water Bottle Pouch. Those who are always out helping need cold water and a free hand. Show your appreciation by giving them something they can use - a water bottle pouch hanging across their chests. It is something that will come with many benefits.

A Soup Night Gift Box. This gift can be almost as good as a warm embrace for those under the weather or in need of some comfort. Acknowledge what someone is going through with a soup mix, a soup jar, and a cable-knit oblong scarf.

Final thoughts…

Believe it or not, you can be anything you want to be. And, if you want to be someone who always cheers others on, reminding them of their importance and value in life, then do it. Go on - we dare you to be that person.

Now, this is where Essentialgifting comes in. As our name suggests - we offer the gifts you need when you need them—no need to waste time shopping around from store to store to find the perfect gift. You’ve got everything conveniently on one website. Shop or Order the gift and move on throughout your day.

It’s that easy.
