It’s The Little Things: 12 Small Gestures That Make Our Day

It's the little things in life..

From the girl behind the counter who compliments our outfit to that guy who holds the lift open for us, it’s the small things in life that sometimes mean the most. Take a look at some of our favourites..

The people we care about the most are always the ones we forget to tell. Toyota has created the #AllThingsToAllPeople Awards to give us an opportunity to let them know just how important they are to us. All you need to do is head on over to and nominate someone who is ‘all things’ to you. Share your nomination on Facebook to be in with a chance to win a variety of fantastic prizes. Go on, make that special someone’s day. You know you want to.
