You know how much we love a good celebration around here (I mean, thank God we do, we’re literally a partyware brand!) but feeling joy and creating meaningful moments doesn’t have to be a special occasion! We’re firm believers in the fact that happiness can be found in the simplest things, that our everyday lives are worth being excited for and that we’ve been blessed with so much more than we can imagine (Alhamdulillah).
Now you might be thinking “How am I supposed to do that when I work so much and still have a huge to-do list when I get home”. If that’s the case, then don’t worry, we completely relate to you! However, you’ll see that instilling moments of joy in your week doesn’t have to be complicated or exhausting! Here are three easy ideas to add happiness to your daily life:
1. Host a teatime at home
Maybe we’re biased by how huge tea-time is in the British culture, but there’s truly something incredibly comforting about having loved ones over and just have a chat over tea and biscuits, even if it’s just for an hour or two! If you want to make this even more special or if you want to get your kids involved on a fun activity, we highly recommend you bake for the occasion. Our Islamic inspired Cookies Cutters have shapes that would make great conversation starters and impress your guests, just as our beautiful Porcelain Tea Sets which will make it all look super chic, just as if you’d gone out to a fancy hotel – but for a fraction of the price!
2. Play with your kids
We sometimes tend to forget this isn’t only an important part of parenthood but also an amazing way to create memories and have good laughs. Make sure you plan out some time to just do a fun activity or play with your kids. Again, it doesn’t have to last for hours but this type of human connection will do them and yourself lots of good! Whether it be baking as we mentioned in the previous point, discussing Islam and the importance of sadaqah around our Money Boxes, reading stories in our Mosque Play Tents or rack your heads to solve our Holy Sites Jigsaws, you’ll be grateful and happy you spent quality time with your little ones.
3. Gift something to someone (or yourself!)
Why wait for certain occasions that only occur a few times a year to get yourself or someone you love a little present? Treats and surprises are such a great way to brighten a day that might not have gone amazingly or simply to show love! Home things like our Porcelain Dinner Sets, our Acrylic Serving Trays and Coasters or our bestselling Geo Moon & Star would make unique and beautiful gifts. In fact, you might even end up getting them both for yourself and that one person you want to spoil!
See, creating these bubbles of happiness in your daily life doesn’t have to be anything crazy! It is just about embracing these simple moments, spreading love… And of course, have a little shopping spree on our website!
