Turning words into sentimental art
Your 1-minute-a-week shortcut to
always having awesome gift ideas well in advance.
My attempt to make you smile
before getting to today’s gift ideas
Hi gift-givers! This newsletter is the take-a-penny, leave-a-penny tray that gift-givers can’t get enough of.
A great deal, right?
One-ish more thing(s)
before today’s gift ideas
Calling all BGC subscribers! This newsletter community was created with the assumption that, if enough subscribers submit their own gift stories, this could be a gift inspiration resource unlike any other. About 3-4 months ago, we had a well-stocked inventory of subscriber-submitted stories and I felt like we were humming along at the full realization of my original vision. Over the last few months, although, submissions of subscriber-submitted stories have dwindled.
To ensure you, the subscribers, are all sitting pretty this upcoming gift-giving season with the best collection of gifts you’ve ever given, we want to be cruising on a full tank again.
Please take the opportunity to contribute to the special thing we have going here by replying to this email with stories of the best gifts you have ever received or given! Thanks!
This email doesn’t cost you any money to always have great gift ideas well in advance…but you could pay me back in stories!

Gift idea time! Here’s a story of a
great gift to spark your creativity
The “word cloud" Gift:

Why this gift is great
Great group gift
Personalized & Unique
Low-cost, high-sentimental value (see other budget-friendly gifts)
Brainstorming your version of this gift
This doesn’t have to be a group gift. You could word cloud your texts or emails with someone.
You could do the analysis manually like Julie does (much respect), or you could use this free online word cloud generator I found to save you time - www.wordclouds.com
You copy and paste words, sentences, paragraphs
You choose the shape or the cloud, colors, font, size, etc.
Once you download your free word cloud image, you can save it as a jpeg and have it printed to your preferred preferences
🚨Warning! Whenever gifting artwork or home decor, consider your recipient’s style preferences and the space needed for them to display your gift.
Consider smaller dimensions – This gift in a 5”x7” frame can easily deliver the same value as the same gift in much larger (aka more challenging to accommodate) dimensions.
