Are You a Flowers or KindNotes Person - Review and Giveaway!


When given a choice between flowers or a handwritten, thought out note from my dear husband, I most definitely would choose a note. Before my husband and I were married, our relationship was all long distance - notes, e-mails, and telephone calls were what kept us together. Right after we met, the military moved my husband to Korea, then to Germany, a short time in Iraq, and then finally back home here in North Dakota. All my letters, cards, and e-mails from him are still saved in a file folder - this folder is busting at the seams. One day, I would love to put them all in a book.

The other day, I came across a product that truly spoke to my heart. My husband started grinning as soon as he heard about the product and when I had decided it had to be our Christmas present to several family members, he completely agreed. This product is called KindNotes.


This company knows what it takes to keep a relationship strong and to always share with others your love for them. What they have done is decorated a jar or mailbox and filled it full of a month's worth of notes. Every morning, the people you love can take a note out of that jar or mailbox and read a note that either you wrote or picked from the KindNotes site.

I recently was thrilled to receive a jar of KindNotes to review. I had loved them when viewed on KindNotes site but was even more thrilled with how it looked after I opened the box. The jar was adorable with its little ribbon and cute charm hanging on the outside. You could see all the notes looking so charming and inviting inside the jar.

It was something that you could lovingly display anywhere in your home. I wanted to open each note right there on the spot but I knew I should wait and open just one each day. There was great anticipation to see what was written just for me each morning.

This is a great way to show anyone in your family that you love them. Even your children will love this. Imagine their delight and surprise when they open their lunchbox to find a KindNote in there just for them from you. My mom did this for us kids when we were in school and we were definitely the envy of all our classmates when we showed off our special letter from my mom. It showed that she cared especially for us.

KindNotes is offering all of my readers a 5% discount on their order if they order during this giveaway. This would be a make great gift for Father's Day, birthday, bridal shower, Christmas, or any occasion. Just type in lookingwell0509 at checkout to receive your discount!

This is such a great idea! I really liked this quote by Goethe.
"Things which matter most must never be at the mercy of things which matter least." Reminds us not to sweat the small stuff! As far as the Father's Day gift ideas I think my favorite was the Be Digital pocket Pix by Brookstone.

My tradition with my dad is just the two of us go to see a Disney film together and then out to dinner. We have been doing this for almost 20 some-odd years!

When I was in grade school my mom would write notes on my napkins in my lunch bag. I loved it. It started out only occasionally when I had a test or something and needed a boost but it turned out to be every day. I plan to do this for my kids when they are older. I loved it.

My favorite: Let your mistakes be a comma, and not a period.

What an encouraging thought! I'm going to start using it today...
