Today I sent the kids to school bearing gifts and since I have been so bad about blogging, I decided this would be the perfect opportunity to get back on track.
The great thing about this post is that it still can be used as quick, but thoughtful last minute Christmas gift ideas.
Jonathan, who is in middle school, was sent with two plates of home baked cookies- one for the teacher's lounge and one for the office. I used my vintage seam binding, and handmade tag, and the cookies are on a (parchment lined) silver platter. The platters are a great find from the dollar store.
Bekah's were a little more involved. We bought glass mugs from the dollar store, Nestle hot cocoa mix, ultra mini dark chocolate chips, and mini marshmallows. I also found adorable (individually wrapped) candy cane spoons that I ordered from Oriental Trading Company.
Unfortunately the spoons sold out so no link. I can see why....they're so awesome! Hopefully they will have them back in stock for next year. The cellophane food bags were purchased from Jo-Ann Fabrics. They came with the silver food grade ties as well. In one bag I put the cocoa, mini chips, and marshmallows. Then added the spoon and the wrapped cookie. Add the vintage ribbon and the personalized tag, and voila!
Have an Inspired Day!
