Melissa Brooks and Jillian Darling, Founders of Serve Kindness, browsed the Generous Goods Collection and chose a beautiful selection of Great Gifts That Give Back™ to adorn the cozy home. Read more about their recommendations.
“We love the Resilience blanket from Thread Talk. The classic stripe goes with both modern and traditional decor and is beautiful draped on the corner of a chair or at the foot of the bed. It is a must for Melissa when she is cozying up on the couch with her fur baby, Magnum, to watch TV or flip through the latest interior design magazines.”
“Nothing in a home is more cozy than food because it brings people together. Spending time with family and friends sharing food and experiences is heartwarming. We are always on the lookout for new cookbooks with beautiful photography and Carrie Minns’ La Pomme de Portland is a must have as she shares recipes and stories from her life that are beautifully illustrated with her own photographs.”
“While we are on the subject of family and friends…Who doesn’t love getting a surprise letter or card in the mail? We both believe in the power of the handwritten word to express love, friendship, kindness, or sympathy and it’s an important part of our week to send out notes to those we care about. Our go-to is Elizabeth VanDuine’s gorgeous Greeting Card Box Collection which contain ten nature-themed blank cards that are a wonderful way to express kindness to family and friends.”
“There is nothing better than a cup of tea to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Jillian enjoys the Pure Moringa Tea from Thistle Farms because it is loaded with nutrients and vitamins (who knew tea could be nutritious?) and is much healthier choice than that afternoon candy bar! Love, love, love the work of Thistle Farms helping women survivors of trafficking, abuse, and addition. Always feels good to be women supporting other women.”
“Lighting one of our Happy Happenstance candles is our go to for setting a warm welcoming environment for our families. That and serving up some delicious food in our handblown glass bowls. The orange and amethyst nested set is perfect for chips & dip or really any warm or cold foods. The colors always brighten our outlooks and makes us happy.”
