The Gift Tree arose from a passion for delicious homemade food mixed with a love of crafts.
Why The Gift Tree? Trees grow from strength to strength and have the power to symbolise, inspire and express our deepest feelings of love, gratitude, protection and happiness. Gifting makes people feel loved and appreciated. Time is the most precious gift because you only have a set amount of it. You can make more money, but you can’t make more time. When you give someone your time, you are giving them a portion of your life that you’ll never get back. Your time is your life. That is why the greatest gift you can give someone is your time.
Volunteering is a great way of giving time and there are so many opportunities and different ways to be involved. Volunteering can help you gain confidence by giving you the chance to try something new and build a real sense of achievement. Volunteering can have a real and valuable positive affect on people, communities and society in general. Volunteering can help you meet different kinds of people and make new friends. Volunteering can help you feel part of something outside your friends and family. Volunteering can help you learn new skills, gain experience and sometimes even qualifications.
