How to use: When you see a behavior from someone in the family (including parents!) put a special candle, designated exclusively for this honor, in the middle of the table. Everyone will know that someone has done something extraordinary! At dinner that night, light the candle and share the behavior you are honoring. Place the key that signifies this value in front of the plate of the recipient (or it can be placed around the neck with a ribbon). Take out the Family Values Journal, and jot the date, who you are honoring and a little bit about the reason. You will be amazed at how proud everyone is at the recipient and at how everyone else at the table starts plotting good deeds as well!

With age brings experience, knowledge and wisdom. Don't we all wish we knew what we know now, when we were younger? What better gift to give someone who is growing into adulthood than these gifts of wisdom? Use this letterbox to collect letters from family members, teachers or any other mentors your child has had in their life. Ask them to share their “Words of Wisdom”. Their thoughts can be shared in the form of a poem, anecdotes, advice for the future, or whatever best suits their personality. We suggest using this for an 18th or 21st birthday or even a graduation. We recommend creating a theme for the letters. For example, if your son is turning 18 ask all the men in his life to share what it means to be a man. Or if your daughter is graduating from highschool, ask your letter writers to write about following your dreams. This will be one of the most treasured gifts a young adult will ever receive.
Box measures 5″ W x 10″ L x 2″ H and includes 12 envelopes and 14 pieces of letterhead.
