We’ve all heard it said that “it’s the little things that count.” We could give so much more of ourselves just by adding little blessings to someone else’s life. There are countless ways that we can spread some Christmas love. Have you ever had an idea for a random act of kindness?
Here are 20 ideas I came up with to spread Christmas cheer. Read through the list & take note of which ones you’d like to do.
1.) Buy a piece of organic chocolate for your sweetest friend.
2.) Message your childhood best friend to remind them of a fond memory that you both share together, e.g., “Remember that time when I accidentally shaved off your left eyebrow?”
Make a personalized ornament
at a craft store for someone you love.
4.) Offer to help clean & prepare the house of someone who is hosting a party you’re attending.
5.) Invite a friend going through hard times over for hot chocolate & encouraging conversation.
6.) Dress up in a ridiculously festive outfit,
take a photo, & send it to a friend to make them laugh. Ugly sweaters are always a great choice.
7.) Anonymously donate money through your church to give to a specific family that has fallen on hard times.
8.) Wake up early to make “snowman” pancakes for breakfast for everyone living in your house.
9.) Call a friend or family member just to randomly say, “I love you.”
Ask an elderly
family member about their favorite Christmas tradition
& let them tell you why it’s so special to them.
11.) Warm up someone’s car for them on a very cold day. You can also clean off the snow from their windshield.
12.) Turn off the television for awhile & have a game night while baking cookies.
13.) Gather up some friends & family to sing Christmas carols.
“The best way to spread Christmas Cheer, is singing loud for all to hear.”

14.) Give a smooch under the mistletoe.
15.) Make a new friend & take them to get coffee or tea at a local, privately-owned coffee shop.
16.) Volunteer at a local charity event.
17.) Donate $5
to buy a Malaria Net
to protect a child from getting malaria & save a life.
18.) Create a personalized greeting card out of construction paper & crayons.
19.) Buy a gift card to a local small business for your boss or employee with a note of appreciation for them. You can even give the gift card to someone you’ve never met before.
Take some time to pray & thank God
for His mercy, love, & for the gift of salvation found through His son. (Romans 5:12-21
