The JOY of Giving

The Christmas season is often a time of reflection and connection, but it can also bring feelings of loneliness or stress. In these moments, turning our attention towards others can be incredibly uplifting. Research from Harvard Business School highlights a beautiful truth: giving to others can significantly uplift our moods, especially during times when we might feel a little blue​​. It’s a fact, supported by science. In the spirit of spreading joy and kindness, we’ve curated a special gift guide, so you know how to encourage and help others with more than just presents.
