The Gift of Gratitude

The holiday season is notorious for being one of the busiest times of the year, and with 42% of adults planning to commence their travel this Thanksgiving, the hustle and bustle is poised to return to its former glory. From TSA lines to packed flights to days spent preparing your famed dishes in advance of the celebrations, it can feel impossible to find a moment to thoughtfully express our thanks and gratitude to the ones we love – the meaning behind the season.

Not only is gratitude core to the season, it is core to humans. Psychology studies note that practicing gratitude is beneficial to our minds and bodies, citing that grateful people feel overall healthier, experiencing fewer aches and pains. Thus, between the hustle and bustle of the “to do’s,” travel arrangements, Pinterest baking sprees and Black Friday deals, taking the time to express gratitude is ever important for us on many levels.

Wherever you are going and whoever you wish to give your thanks to, GiftCast has you covered – no time-consuming trips to the store, wrapping paper or shipping delays involved – so you can be sure to embrace the feeling of the season without adding another item to your list. Whether you are at home or on the move, GiftCast ensures you can send a personalized message of gratitude that your loved ones will cherish for years to come – even if you can’t make the trip to see them this year. The accompanying cash gift or Amazon eGift Card also lets your recipient treat themselves to a gift of their choice – or maybe their favorite pumpkin-themed dessert or bottle of wine to share around the Thanksgiving, Christmas or Hannukah table.

We encourage you to slow down and embrace the key tenets of the holiday season– happiness, health, gratitude, and of course, tasty food.
