365Because has been a dream of mine for many years.  Now I finally share the joy that I experienced, with you.

The idea for 365Because grew when I was searching for the perfect gift to give my sister.  Now she was someone who had everything and needed for nothing…she was someone with expensive taste and who I was sure would never remember what the gift was within a few minutes of opening it.  The truth is, whatever gift I gave her, I was likely to get it back as a gift myself, or it was bound to end up sold at her next garage sale!

So the search continued to find something that was meaningful, special and hopefully something that she could not re-gift or that would cost me a small fortune!  It was then that I found myself surrounded with things that reminded me of her, some photos (keep in mind this was the time before Facebook so I had real photos), an old birthday card, a post card she had sent me while on holidays…so I grabbed a glass of wine, my favourite chocolate and I lit a candle.

The joy of giving

I had worked on my gift for my sister for a few days.  It was a gift filled with love and many happy memories.  I knew it was something that she would treasure.  I knew it was definitely something she didn’t already have.  And I knew it was something meaningful that money couldn’t buy.

I saved my gift for last.  Watching my sister open it and seeing her face light up as she worked out what it was, made it all worth the effort!  It was just as rewarding for me giving her the gift as it was for her receiving it.  We sat and opened a few tickets, reading them out loud.  We laughed as we remembered some of the happy times we have shared over the years.


I had found a healthy outlet to express my thoughts and feelings.  The kit was a way for me to say all those things I wanted to say but never took the chance, had the time or the guts!  I knew then that this was something I needed to share.

I reflected on my experience.  I worked out how I could make it better!  I then went about getting all the things to make it easy and fine tuned the process.  A kit from 365Because has everything you need to experience the joy of giving.

Thank you
