Christmas Eve is a time for gatherings and merriment with those who are closest to us. It can also be a good time to focus on the hope that you have for your friends and family who are gathered or will be gathering during the Yuletide season. Some traditions have a single gift opened on Christmas Eve. You can turn this into a way to gift hope to others during this season.
Take a small jar and fill it with items that make you feel hopeful or have a tie to the individual you are gifting it to. Seal the jar with a lid and wax if you’d like. Each one of these gifts will be unique and special. On a piece of parchment, write what you hope the recipient will see within the next year. Finish by tying to the lid a small red ribbon with the piece of parchment attached.
