This idea and story comes from my director who shall remain anonymous…
Can you picture this scenario? It’s Christmas Day, late at night. You are a mom who stayed up late on Christmas eve wrapping gifts, playing Santa, and even nibbling on the cookies (which you made!) that you left for “Santa”/yourself!!
Today, Christmas Day, you have cooked, cleaned, picked up toys, the kids were all hyped up on stocking candy…the list is endless. Holidays are so fun, but there is so much work involved at times, too. *Sigh*
You decide what you need is a nice hot shower or bath, so you head off to take one.
Little do you know, your hubby has gotten you one last little something special (from MK of course!) and left it on your pillow as a “Thank you” for all your hard work over the last few days! So as you go to flop down on the bed, exhausted from the flurry of activity, you see it. One nicely wrapped, very elegant thank-you present on your pillow with a note attached that reads:
“The holiday is over,
There was so much to do.
How would I have ever done it,
Without the help from you?
Thank you for all you do,
I love you.”
Can you picture the tears of joy? Can you feel the excitement that her husband noticed all her hard work? It is not the gift that counts in this situation, but the timing and the thoughtfulness of that gift.
Flash to the real world: Most men will NEVER, EVER think of this on their own! Who will come to the rescue of all the tired moms and hostesses? Why, we must do it! We need to share this idea with all the men in our lives in order to give some appreciation for those who prepare Christmas dinner, deal with the hustle and bustle, and simply try to give all they can of themselves to make the holidays brighter for everyone in their lives.
Pass this idea along to all the men that you know…and as my director put it, they might just get one big “Thank you” that night from their significant other, if you get the drift! 😉 And don’t you know a few men who need some help in the romance department? LOL!
Ideas for pillow gifts:
Keep them under $20. Here are a few good ideas:
–> The new perfume wands! (you can give a slight discount to sell lots at $20)
–> Satin Lips set with hershey’s kisses
–> Energizing Foot Lotion
–> An eye quad
–> A lip duo
–> A soothing eye gel
–> A Body Lotion. You could even move older Spa products this way!
Remember, this is supposed to be romantic, so make it look elegant versus cutesy. Try using black, silver, white, or red colors with sheer bag to make it look very nice. You can use the sparkly type of shred to dress it up and the sheer bag to show it off nicely. You could even hand write the poem on a medium tag for him so all he has to do is sign it! How great is that!
How many could you sell by December 25th? Selling 10 is $100 fast Christmas Cash! $$$$ Woo hoo!
