The Gift of Gratitude is the theme for November and we chose this theme because cultivating an attitude of gratitude is truly the best gift we can give ourselves! Studies show that there are great physical and psychological benefits we gain when we regularly practice gratitude so we filled the box with goodies and tools to inspire our subscribers to develop a habit of practicing gratitude daily!
Self-development and building a positive mindset is what My Best 9 to 5 Life is all about and each month, subscribers receive an inspiring personal development book centered around the month's theme. This month, we chose Attitudes of Gratitude: Give and Receive Joy Every Day of Your Life by M.J. Ryan. This inspirational classic is filled with easily digestible short essays to help you discover the amazing benefits of practicing daily gratitude and also ways to do it!
To encourage subscribers to practice daily gratitude and enjoy its benefits, we included the Gratitude One Line a Day Journal: A Three-Year Memory Book. We love the simplicity of this journal and think it's perfect for busy professionals who don't have a lot of time to write in-depth every day but would be able to write at least one thing-- just one line-- of something you're grateful for each day. What we also love about this journal is that it is undated but spans three years (you just fill in the year for each day) so that at the end, you'll have a beautiful record of all your blessings you recorded for three years! Such a sweet keepsake!
Every month, we also include something chic and functional for your office so this month, we included this beautiful Double-Sided Plan with Laur Planning Pad by Bloom Planners. This isn't your typical planning pad. This pad is the perfect mix of function, inspiration and motivation! The front side features spaces for the day's top 3 must-dos, appointments, a to-do list (we love that "Do something just for me" is pre-written so you don't forget self-care!), water intake tracker, goal progress, affirmations and reminders for later. There are also prompts for you to reflect on the day's wins, takeaways and daily gratitude. The back side has 4 open-ended sections so you can use them however you need to! We're obsessed with everything about it!
The spoiler item for this month was this chic 14k rose gold Gratitude Heart Center necklace by Gratitude Glass Jars. We envisioned our subscribers wearing this during their work day to lift them up by reminding them to look for something good in each day, especially the days when it feels really hard to find it.
Lastly, we included this beautiful Plantable Thank You Card by The Card Bureau so our subscribers can practice gratitude by writing a special note to someone they're thankful for. Writing a heartfelt thank you note not only brightens your recipient's day, you'll feel good too as you re-live why you're grateful for them. What makes this card extra special is that after your recipient reads your kind note, they can plant the card to grow wild non-invasive flowers and continue to be reminded of your thoughtfulness! SO cool!
