"You don't choose your family. They are God's gift to you as you are to them." - Desmond Tutu
Of all of the lessons learned growing up, the importance of family was front and center. We spent most of our formative years living within a 2 mile radius of grandmothers (one lived with us), aunts, uncles and cousins. Our house was always full of family - just stopping by, having supper, checking in on each other. Vacations were meant for seeing the family who did not live close by - elderly aunts and uncles and more distant cousins than you can shake a stick at (as our Grandma Badger liked to say)!
Fast forward and now we have our own homes and families, but the connection to our family, particularly the older generations, has remained strong. As we raise our own kids, we appreciate more and more what our parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents poured into our lives.
These days, for most families, maintaining these connections gets harder and harder. We have jobs that often move us away from our families, and we are so busy - raising our children, participating in our schools, communities and churches, plus trying to maintain our marriages and friendships, and even our own health. Sometimes finding the time to call an elderly aunt, or drive 200 miles to visit a grandparent is hard to fit in.
That's where Silver Swag Box comes in. Over the years, we have lovingly (and sometimes creatively!) assembled gift and care packages for our loved ones who live far away. We love talking to them later and hearing the delight in their voices, that someone thought of them, and the surprises they received.
We know firsthand how busy life can be. SilverSwag Box is here to help you surprise and delight your loved ones!
All our best,
Brandi and Ashley
