After the challenging past year most of us had, celebrations of any kind can be a fun and exciting thing to do. They give you something to look forward to. Today we are bringing you a unique holiday worth celebrating, International Family Day! And we have some fantastic ideas to help you get this party started next to some cool gifts for any family members you may want to show some love.
You may be still wondering what is International Family Day? Well, founded by the United Nations in 1994, we celebrate every May 15th to honor the importance of families as the foundation of society and raise awareness on important issues, such as gender equality in the family unit. Here are the best ways to celebrate this memorable holiday.
Spend time with your family
The pandemic either forced us to spend more time with our families or kept us away from them. We know this one is a no-brainer, but in reality, the perfect way to commemorate this day is by spending quality time with your family. It is very easy to take our family for granted, so take this day as an opportunity to share with your family how you feel about them and how grateful you are for everything they have done for you.
Share a volunteering day with them
You can join in on the global celebration by working together with your family on a project to benefit your community. Some ideas can be to help in a food bank or at a homeless shelter. You can even help build a house for a family in need while bonding with yours. The options and causes to support are endless, but doing it with your family can help you appreciate your blessings.
Get them a family gift
Getting a small detail for your most close family members is an incredible option to show them how much you care. At TeeChip, we have excellent options for every single member of your family. Some can even be personalized gifts with their names to make this detail a genuinely unique gift.
Build your family tree
You probably heard stories from your parents or grandparents about your family, but do you really know where you come from? This activity is the best way to listen to the most exciting stories about your family history and a fun way to spend some quality time together.
Participate in your community activities for the day
This international date is the perfect opportunity to promote awareness of issues relating to families and to understand their causes. Although celebrated online, there are several events organized at local, national, and international levels like workshops, seminars, exhibitions, etc., to encourage discussions on the annual theme to strengthen the family unit.
It doesn’t matter if your family is traditional or non-traditional; if it consists of 1 person or 20, the truth is they all should be celebrated because of the importance families have to society, and in molding you into the person you are today. Follow any of these recommendations, and you will have a great day with your family for sure!
Happy International Family Day!
