Leave a tip in a cafe tip jar.

We’re closing in on our two-month countdown to Christmas, with only 70 days left before the big day. Here are 10 new ideas for making somebody’s day that little bit better, don’t forget to share yours on our social media channels, Facebook and Twitter.

  1. Seek advice from people in your community. Being listened to means a lot!
  2. Let the person behind you at the supermarket checkout who has only a few items go ahead of you.
  3. If you hear a song that brightens your day, share that music with somebody. It just might do the same for them!
  4. Give things you don’t use away for free on Freecycle.
  5. Ask to see your elderly neighbour’s photo albums.
  6. Put a tip in the tip jar at a café.
  7. When you go to the shops, ask the people around you if there is anything they need.
  8. Invite people to sit with you in a busy coffee shop, especially if there are no tables available.
  9. Donate your old glasses.
  10. Give up the last supermarket trolley for the next person.
