April 10th is Sibling Day - Here’s How to Celebrate!
Sibling Day may not be recognized by the majority of the globe, or even the nation, but we are here to change that! Whether biological or chosen, a core piece of family and community are our brothers and sisters. Start by pausing to remember all the moments that have bonded you with your siblings; the adventures, the heartbreak, everything in-between. Take today to let those you love know you are grateful for them with one (or all!) of the simple gestures below.
Give Them a Call
At no cost to you, a phone call is by far the simplest way to effectively show your sibling you were thinking of them. Recall memories together, catch up on their lives and what their family is up to, and ask them questions. Practice listening well and you may learn something you never knew about your own sibling. Does your sibling have a sense of humor? Find or create a new joke to share with them. Is your sibling into movies? Ask what they have been watching lately. A phone call may not be a tangible gift, but a conversation like this would brighten anyone’s day.
Write Them a Note
There is a reason that handwritten notes have not gone out of style, even with technology moving our society so far beyond the need for manually written and delivered information. Handwritten notes communicate so much more than the words on the page. When you look at someone’s handwriting, you see their personality and you may even be able to tell what they were feeling, simply by the way their letterforms change. That is crazy! If you are artistically inclined, make your own card and draw something that reminds you of your childhood or a special memory with your sibling. Or, you can pick out a locally-designed card here! The card sets the tone, but your message is what your sibling will cherish. Don’t have enough words to fill the space? Doodles are always a good choice!
Send Them a Gift
If your sibling has been through a tough time recently, or has never been thanked for their hard work, or you just feel like blessing them extra hard, a physical gift just may be the way to go! Gifts can fit into any budget, and your sibling is sure to feel special no matter what they receive. Some of our favorite sibling gifts are:
Is your sibling especially sentimental? Consider sending them a candle. Everyone loves a good smell, and Paddywax Candle Co. creates some of the best scents in Nashville. Their Hygge Collection Tobacco + Vanilla is practically a staple in local homes. Not to mention, the vessel can be repurposed into a catch-all when your sibling has burned through the candle itself.
This gift is perfect for every sibling who thinks fondly of breakfast. Because it includes Loveless Cafe Buttermilk Belgian Waffle and Pancake Mix, Batch Blend Coffee, Trubee Raw Honey, and Nashville Jam Company Blackberry Jam it reminds us of Saturday mornings and sleeping in. Does your sibling prefer tea over coffee? No worries! Send the Tea Time Gift Batch instead!
BONUS: You can (and should) still include a handwritten note when you send a gift - we will add it for you when you order a Gift Batch!
