HOW TO GIVE: MONEY
Gift Card Snow Globe
Christmas shopping for that special someone who is extremely hard to buy for? Take the easy way out with a gift card, but spice it up a bit by putting it inside of a snow globe.
When should I start shopping? How much should I spend? How important is presentation? These are commonly asked questions that form the foundation of gift giving. Yet, the art of gift giving is far more complex; it’s a year-round endeavor, not just a holiday season topic. There are birthdays, weddings, award ceremonies, even dinner parties. More importantly, there are less-frequently addressed topics that can make you a more well-rounded gifter! Today, we will tackle 4 specific topics that will make you better on both ends of the gift giving spectrum: gifter and receiver.
Chinese New Year, which begins on February 8th, has transitioned from a celebration of deities and ancestors to a time to gather with family, take time off work, and re-energize oneself for the new lunar year. Much like in the United States, it is one of the most important holidays in its country, China. Each new year is associated with a zodiac animal sign – there are 12 total, all having different characterizations with regards to those who are born in a particular year. In 2016, we turn to the Year of the Monkey, which signifies a wide range of traits and meanings.

On June 21st, we celebrate and thank the fathers who have sacrificed so much to make our lives better. Working multiple jobs to put food on the table, helping others in times of need, supporting us even in our wildest dreams – these are just a few of the infinite ways fathers have greatly impacted our lives.
In our recent Father’s Day Contest, we gave you the opportunity to recognize your dad’s amazing contributions and to tell us why you think he deserves the world. We received many entries, all of which were incredibly thoughtful and heartwarming. Congratulations to Wendy S. for her winning contest entry! To continue the spirit of celebrating our dads, we’d like to share excerpts from some of our favorite entries to show how our fathers are so important in our lives:
We love celebrating the special moments in life and come Sunday, we will be celebrating the special persons who have raised us to become the individuals we are today — our mothers. We think all mothers deserve the best that we can give, including Mother Earth, the one who nurtures us all (to be honest, we’re not quite over Earth Day). Whether you already struck gold with the perfect gift or activity, or are still scouring the Internet for an off-beat one, here is our personal list of green Mother’s Day ideas that not only give the gift of love to amazing moms, but also help to contribute to a greener environment that will sustain and foster many more Mother’s Days and memories to come:
During Teacher Appreciation Week from May 4th to May 8th, we honor those educators who devote their time, energy, and passion to make our children’s lives better. Through encouragement and positive reinforcement, they impart knowledge to our youth and inspire kids of all ages to reach for the stars. Teachers make a difference not only in the classroom, but also in the schools and community, all while impacting families from every part of the world.
How are you showing your appreciation this week or during today, Teacher Appreciation Day? Whether it’s giving your teacher a unique gift like a MOVA Globe, saying thank you in person, or collaborating with your fellow classmates or parents to throw a special event, we hope you take the time to give thanks to your deserving teacher.
