Random Acts of Kindness Inspiration and Inexpensive Gift Ideas

There's a simple yet profound way to brighten our day and uplift our spirits - kindness. As we celebrate Galentine's Day, Valentine's Day and Random Acts of Kindness Day all within a few days of each other this week, we're provided with the ideal opportunity to think about the positive impact a small gesture can have on someone's life. 

Random Acts of Kindness Day falls on Sautrday 17th February this year, and serves as a gentle reminder that, even in our busy lives, there are countless opportunities to spread joy and make a difference in the lives of those around us. Remember too, a kind gesture can often make you feel better as well, so it's a win win!

We've provided some easy and practical ideas below that prove kindness doesn't always require grand gestures or expense. With that in mind, shouldn't we all be embracing a little more kindness?

Random Acts Of Kindness Inspiration

Phone someone for a friendly chat

WhatsApp and exchanging messages online is all well and good, but it's totally different to seeing someone in person or hearing their voice. Why not simply pick up the phone and ask someone how they're doing, you could very well make their day.

Send something in the post

From letterbox flowers to a fancy bouquet, a greetings card or even and old fashioned letter, receiving something in the post that isn't a household bill is a rare occurrence and it's even rarer to receive something nice that you haven't paid for yourself!

Make something and leave it somewhere for someone to find

This could be a simple painted rock, something knitted or crocheted, essentially any little something that can survive outdoors that's been handmade and will put a smile on someone's face.

It's best to make sure that the item you choose include a little message making it clear it's free for someone to take.

Arrange a coffee date

Arrange a coffee date with a friend that you've not seen in person for a while. With busy schedules an hour of time can make the most perfect gift, all for the cost of a coffee (and perhaps a piece of cake).

Kind complements

Smiles and complements are absolutely free and the easiest possible way to spread a bit of kindness. Whether it's complimenting a stranger for their lovely nails, engaging someone in friendly conversation or letting a frazzled looking shopper go ahead of you in the queue, it helps to spread those feel-good vibes.

Bake something

Baking is a lovely heartfelt gesture and whether it's a batch of scones, cookies or cupcakes, the recipient is sure to be delighted. Just make sure you're aware of any dietary restrictions before gifting them to your friend, neighbour or work colleague.

As we've mentioned, it's not all about spending money, but if you want to gift, we've collated a lovely little collection of inexpensive pieces that are perfect for gifting.
