Thanksgiving is the perfect day to kick off the holiday season. This special holiday brings family and friends together - unless Uncle Jack decides to bring up who should inherit grandma’s decorative salt and pepper shaker collection again - then it’s complete chaos. All joking aside, Thanksgiving is a time of year when communities and people give thanks for what they have and provide service for those who may need a hand. BagzDepot has some great ideas of things you can do with your friends and community this year.
Make Thanksgiving Even Better with Reusable Tote Bags
Around the BagzDepot office, some of us have really large families so everyone comes together at a central location and the host is normally “stuck” with all the leftovers (as if that’s a terrible problem to have). If this sounds like your family, don’t send your family members home with an old grocery bag you pulled out from under the sink. Treat your family right and send them home with a budget-friendly canvas tote bag filled with delicious leftovers. Make a few plates for everyone, throw it in the tote bag, and you’re good to go. Plus, you’ve just given a great parting gift – a reusable tote bag.
Warning: If Aunt Karen makes her cornbread and you end up going home with it, you may want to upgrade to a heavy-duty tote bag for your leftovers.
Maybe Thanksgiving counts as your family’s reunion, and if that’s the case, you may think about stepping your proverbial game up and making custom printed cotton tote bags with your family name on it. When you send the family on their way, they have something to remember the trip with and something to nosh on the way home.
Activities for Thanksgiving Weekend
Thanksgiving has ended and you just came home with a brand new tote bag with a bunch of leftovers and you slip into a food coma only to wake up on Friday ready to tackle the lines of Black Friday as hungry as you were the day before. Use your brand new leftover bag to prepare a picnic for the lines, you will be the envy of all of those around you as you pull out your wild leftover concoctions from a personalized tote bag with a picture of your grandma’s decorative salt and pepper shaker collection.
Giving Back with Reusable Tote Bags
If you like getting involved in the community, there are many church groups or PTAs looking for service ideas/volunteers to help create care packages for those in need. Preparing essentials bags is a great way to give back and easy to put together. These bags normally consist of items like toothbrushes, combs, toiletries, and can even go as far as to have sweaters and pillows. Normally these are all assembled and put into canvas bags or totes for easy dispersal.
There are tons of street fairs and city events happening during Thanksgiving weekend, look at your town’s community website or event calendar to see what’s happening in your city.
