Ideas for Odd Gifts That Matter
Birds have their own outlook regarding odd gifts.
For example, this Mourning Dove might expect that you’d be delighted with a twig. (Can you see the hopeful anticipation in its face?)
Of course, if you gave someone a twig as a gift, they might act disappointed – even if you put the twig in a fancy box with an expensive ribbon.
Agreed, I’m speculating here. So if you try this and have a different experience, please let me know.
I wrote this post to introduce two new articles. Both offer ideas for showing compassion and kindness.
3 Gifts Everyone Wants (Odd gifts that cost nothing, yet leave a lasting memory)
Kindness for the Holidays (How to make any gathering a success for everyone)
However, if you’re too busy to read articles (or go shopping), then I recommend: Find a nice twig and tell the recipient that a bird helped you pick it out.

Help Birds Tip

What to Do: Give trash to your local disposal service by putting it in proper, closed containers.
