From Chicken Soup for the Soul: Book of Christmas Virtues

Gone Logo

Customize Christmas by proclaiming your personal “joy to the world.”

Purchase a rubber stamp that reads “Joy,” along with colored inkpads, from a stationery or scrapbook supply store—or have one custom designed at a local printing firm.

Stamp butcher paper, tissue paper or brown paper for gift wrap. Embellish plain white or colored gift bags. And don’t forget to create coordinating gift tags.

Use the stamp to personalize your holiday cards, stationery, envelopes, thank-you notes and address labels. What about decorating paper napkins, tablecloths, place cards and nametags? And don’t forget to stamp each bill you pay!

Make “joy” your logo this year, and spread it freely.
