Guess what I’ve been doing lately? Making you very special gifts … gifts you’ll treasure, gifts you’ll share and gifts you so deserve.
Because … ’tis the season. Yes, even in 2020. Especially in 2020!
Announcing 31 Days of Gifts You So Deserve has been my cue to kick off the holiday season for the last eight years. It’s become something I look forward to every year and based on the emails I start receiving in July, I know many of you do too. This year, I’ll be sharing a few of the all-time favorite gifts from the past few years along with new gifts.
What is 31 Days of Gifts?
31 Days of Gifts You So Deserve is like an advent calendar in your inbox. You’ll receive meaningful, magical gifts throughout the month of December. These gifts will encourage you to embrace the holidays with joy and intention. They will also help you move into the new year with an open heart.
Every day throughout December, you’ll receive a gift in your inbox. At the end of each email, you’ll find links to the gifts that came before. If you join after we get started, miss a gift, or want to revisit one of your favorite gifts, this list makes it easy to go back.
A beautiful tradition.
For many in the Be More with Less community (myself included), 31 Days of Gifts You So Deserve has become a holiday tradition. I love how you embrace the daily gifts and invite friends, family, and co-workers. If you haven’t participated before, you might be interested in hearing what participants have to say about the program.
December can be a stressful month for me (and so many people) and I strive to keep my mind on my faith and family in the midst of so many other obligations. Your daily e-mails helped me to focus my attention on the things that are truly important. – Matt
I just wanted you to know that this was one of my HIGHLIGHTS of December! – Julie
A friend signed me up for these gifts and I enjoyed opening each one. Thank you for your thought-provoking words. They will stay with me throughout the year. – Randi
I so appreciated the 31 days of gifts in my inbox during the hectic beautiful and magical month of December. I listened to your stories, danced and sang to your playlists, tried a recipe or two and spent time just thinking about what you wrote each day. – Loretta
Thank you so much for these wonderful 31 Days of Gifts! I’m finding myself looking first for your emails every morning. They are helping me to focus, and feel a little less frantic, and to enjoy the holidays. Thank you for a bright start to each day, and a few quiet moments. – Joyce
Thank you so much for doing this project! I enjoy your emails so much and I look forward to viewing my inbox every morning. I am a little sad December only has 31 days in it! – Cassie
Why Join 31 Days (plus a free sampling of gifts)
This program is a reminder that the best things don’t come from the mall or in perfectly wrapped packages. If we want to experience the very best gifts, we have to give ourselves time to pay attention to them even in the midst of uncertainty and navigating the holidays in a new way.
Each year, more and more people send 31 Days of Gifts to friends, family, and co-workers. We’ve had book clubs, corporate offices, community groups, churches and families spanning the globe participate together. That is just one of the many reasons this program is so dear to my heart.
Gifts of holidays past have included …
- pecan pie
- joyful noise playlist
As you may have guessed these gifts are not physical objects because we all know the best things aren’t things. Click here to sample a few gifts to see what I mean. This year will include favorites from the last few years (but none from last year), new gifts and a few personal messages from me to you.
You deserve the gift of discovering what’s most meaningful to you over the holidays. You deserve a few quiet moments to yourself. You deserve to give yourself permission to make room for the best things … instead of trying to make room for all the things.
This year, as we distance from each other to protect each other, we can still stay connected and celebrate the holiday season. 31 Days will help.
Pay what you want …
For the last eight years, this program has been offered for $3.10 (ten cents a day), but it is worth so much more. As more people participate, I invest more time and money to make these gifts available and meaningful. If you’ve participated before, you understand the value of the program, but I also know that for some, $3.10 is barely in the holiday budget.
Each year I consider raising the price, but instead, I’d like to leave it up to you. Please pay what you want so everyone can continue to enjoy the gifts they so deserve with a small investment.
Please read these important instructions before joining …
If you are purchasing one gift subscription for yourself:
After you click to join, you will be directed to the purchase page where you will see the minimum price of $3.10. Leave it there or enter a new dollar amount to pay what you want. After you complete your purchase, you can download the welcome letter and then check your inbox for an email with more information about receiving your gifts.
If you are purchasing for friends, family, and co-workers, please follow these 3 steps:
- click the image below or use this link.
- edit the price to what you want to pay (minimum $3.10 per name). You won’t be able to adjust the quantity, only the price.
- Complete the purchase and send your receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org with the names and email addresses of your gift recipients. We will add them to the 31 Days mailing list.
Q: When do I receive my first gift?
December 1st or the day after you sign up in December. If you join later in December, you’ll find all prior gifts listed in your first email. You won’t miss a thing!
Q: How will my gift recipients know I sent them this as a gift?
Once you purchase, you’ll receive a gift letter to share with them. It’s really important to let them know to expect emails from email@example.com or they may think it’s junk mail.
Q: Is there a deadline to join?
I recommend joining as soon as possible so you can start receiving gifts on December 1st, but you can register anytime thru December and still have access to all 31 gifts.
Q: How do I access gifts I missed?
All the gifts are listed in each email with links so you can go back to gifts you missed or ones you want to revisit.
Q: Can I join from anywhere?
Yes! If you have an email address, we’ll send you gifts.
Q: What forms of payment do you accept.
Paypal or card. Once you enter your name and email, you’ll have the option to enter your card number or choose to pay via Paypal.
Q: Do I need special login information or a password?
No. Everything will be delivered via email.
Q. It’s December and I didn’t receive my first gift yet. Where is it?
Please check your promotions folder or spam folder. If you still don’t have it, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will help.
Q. How do I make sure my gift recipients get their email?
Let them know what to expect in advance. We’ll be sending you a gift message PDF you can forward and we highly recommend you have a conversation to tell them it’s coming. Give them the chance to be excited about looking for their gifts each day.
Q: This isn’t a question, but I need help!
Great, We are happy to help! Please email email@example.com.
Enjoy these daily doses of delight throughout December. Gentle reminders and joyful recommendations will guide you through the month with wonder and simplicity.
