With Father’s Day approaching, Mother’s Day not too long ago, and the International Day of Families this past Saturday, we wanted to take a moment to recognize, celebrate and thank parents everywhere for all the work they do. While these annual holidays are a great reminder, we also believe we can make this known throughout the year.
With that in mind, we’ve put together a roundup of the best ways to appreciate your parents all year round:
- Subscription Boxes: Gifting someone a subscription box is a nice way to show appreciation all year long, as most offer monthly or quarterly packages filled with a selection of curated goodies. There are different types of subscription boxes available, ranging from beauty to food, sports to movies, and more, making it the perfect gift to personalize for your parents and share your appreciation for them all year round!
- BuzzBell: BuzzBell was created with families in mind – to improve their communication, foster meaningful connections, offer peace of mind and provide a safe and private home for life’s most important messages and calls. Missing calls, playing phone tag and waiting a significant amount of time to get a response when you have important news to share with your parents can become frustrating. BuzzBell is the best communication app available to connect with confidence when you need each other most.
- Digital Photo Frame: Reflecting back on fond memories together is a shared experience that communicates appreciation in its own special way. A great and fun way to look back on such memories is through photos. While scrapbooks were popular years ago, they’ve since been digitized in the form of digital photo frames, where you can showcase a constantly rotating series of images. Whether it’s photos from childhood, vacation, or family parties, it’s a great way to reminisce with Mom and Dad. If a photo is worth a thousand words, a photo album could be worth millions.
- Quality Time: Above all else, parents value spending quality time with their children. As we work towards getting back to ‘normal,’ we’ll have more opportunities to do just that. This doesn’t necessarily have to be a fancy trip, because sometimes the best times are simply spent sitting outside or enjoying a nice meal together. As children grow older, it’s often harder to find time to spend with their parents, but doing so consistently is something any parent will find invaluable.
Each parent-child relationship is unique in its own beautiful way, and there are tons of different ways to show how much you appreciate your parents. While we should recognize our parents every day, let’s make a special effort on these dedicated days to show how much we care for them.
