About World Compliment Day

About World Compliment Day

World Compliment Day originated in the early 2000s. Hans Poortvliet, a recognition professional from the Netherlands, started this creative day to spread praise and positivity. March 1 is all about consciously reflecting on what someone does well, and letting them know you sincerely appreciate them. A sincere personal compliment doesn't cost anything, but can carry a big impact.

Give a compliment

There’s no limit on who can participate! It’s just a matter of noticing something positive about someone and sincerely communicating it to them. Try telling someone they did a great job at work, comment on their amazing cooking skills, or share a deeper compliment and let someone know how they’ve impacted your life in a meaningful way. In these challenging times, we can all use the extra appreciation and support!

We’ve made it easy for you to share a compliment on Instagram with custom Instagram Stickers. All you have to do is open the sticker menu on Instagram (add sticker icon from Instagram) and search @Compliments to choose your sticker. With the stickers, you can tell a someone they are a super sister, one of a kind or my inspiration.
