How to be thoughtful and show gratitude | The Champagne Supernova

The post is sponsored. The blog ain’t gonna pay for itself (and I’m due for low-lights!)

How many times have we thought about doing something special for someone to show our gratitude for them and, while our intentions were good, life got in the way and we never got around to doing it? Or maybe we did it, but not the way we envisioned.

This happens to me all the time.

A personalized “happy birthday to you, you live in a zoo” phone call in your best Beyoncé impression becomes a short “HBD!” text message.

Making a home cooked meal and driving it to the house of a sick relative becomes an Uber Eats delivery.

Visiting a friend and her new baby in the hospital becomes hiring Betty-Sue’s Florist to deliver carnations in a beat up minivan.


We all have busy lives. Carpools. Work deadlines. Soccer practice. Tennis matches. Trips to the grocery story. Trying to survive the chaos.

But when did it become acceptable to let being busy get in the way of being thoughtful and showing gratitude? This post here made me realize that life is too short to take someone for granted. To assume there would be another time to tell them you cared.

Then, I recently discovered one of my newest favorite companies. A company that makes it easy to be thoughtful and show the ones we love they are appreciated.

I am a huge enthusiast of supporting small businesses that make our already busy lives easier.

Thanks to Bond, sending a personalized note is as easy as shooting off an email. Seriously.

As in, they have an app and you can do it from your phone.

Riding the subway.

On an elevator.

In an airplane.

Standing in line for a Frappuccino.

Laying on the couch in your pajamas. (Me over here!)

Bond allows you to send beautiful, handwritten notes on customizable, high quality stationery from your phone or computer, and they make it easier than ever to make a habit of being thoughtful.

I tend to be slow-to-learn when dealing with new technology, but it only took me about five minutes to send these personalized note cards to my loved ones directly from my smart phone on the Bond App.

Five minutes!

And even better, the Bond app even addresses the notes, slaps a stamp on them, and has them delivered to the recipient.


When you download the app, you can send your first note to a friend or loved one for free!

      First things first: what color low lights??
      That Bond app is the best thing I’ve ever seen, since erasable ink! Thanks for all your “hard work” figuring it out for us! 😉

      I freaking lost it with your disclaimer. I love it. I actually had tears running down my face as I read it to my husband. I had to then explain what low-lights were. You are hilarious!

      I am already sitting here trying to come up with ways I can make the most of this app. I love this idea! You’re right, sometimes life just gets in the way. Downloading the app now!
