Gift Thoughtfully When you Give merci

I’d like to thank merci for sponsoring this post.

If you’re like me, you may be feeling like the month of December is going by far too quickly. It’s a blur of tinsel and glitter, but don’t forget to pause and put a little extra care into the gifts you choose for the people you love the most.

You can easily break out of a boring gift-giving pattern by choosing to focus on selecting a special gift and making it meaningful with a few words from the heart. Yes, it’s that easy and it can so easily transform someone’s holiday season.

Enhance your gift of merci this season by visiting where you can customize, print or email your own holiday inserts! These are so cute tucked into your beautiful merci box and really add that special touch to the package.

You can change the background graphics and colors on the custom merci holiday insert, and you can also customize your greeting. You can even choose to leave the message area blank to give you more room to write your own thoughtful note on the insert.

While you’re there, you can also print a very cute and practical merci shopping list!

One way I like to surprise and delight the people I love during the holidays is to deliver gifts at unusual times. Sure, my whole family meets for one big gift exchange on Christmas day every year, but why not mix it up a bit by hand-delivering special gifts in the days or even weeks before the holidays?

I’ll be swinging by my dad’s office the week before Christmas this year to give him a box of merci chocolates along with one of those custom holiday inserts that I mentioned earlier. He’s turning 60 this year, and I’m just so grateful to have him in my life. Not only is he a great father, he’s an outstanding Papaw to my children.

A great Papaw is priceless!

He won’t be expecting an early gift, and that’s what makes it extra-nice. I’ll be breaking out of my typical, robotic gift-giving routine and also expressing how much I appreciate him in a unique and memorable way.


It doesn’t hurt that my father has a true love of fine chocolate and always enjoys his merci during the holiday season! Each slim, stylish box contains eight unique, individually-wrapped flavors, including Milk Chocolate, Coffee and Cream, Hazelnut-Almond, Hazelnut-Crème, Marzipan, Dark Cream, Dark Mousse and Praline-Crème.

Do you have a favorite? Mine is Marzipan.

With a name that literally means “thank you,” merci believes there is no better way of expressing heartfelt gratitude than with a gift that speaks for itself. Through the heart-shaped logo, brand name and quality chocolate, merci encourages gratitude every day of the year.

Simple but special gifts that come from the heart really mean so much, especially during the holiday season. Gift thoughtfully this year when you give the gift of yourself, and merci!
