“You don’t bring me flowers….you don’t sing me love songs…”
Okay, this post has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with love songs. But c’mon! Can anyone fault me for needing to talk about “bouquets” and wanting to quote a song by Neil Diamond AND Babs? It’s like the best combo of my life. Almost as good as the combo of Cheese fries and dipping sauce. This has gone WAAAYY off track…
This week is teacher appreciation week at my son’s school. And at first I thought, “it’s probably too late to share ideas for gifts.” But then I realized that if I haven’t done it yet, then there are probably others like me. Others who could use a good, cheap, fast, last minute gift.
Well if I was a man, and a husband, a last minute gift would spark a trip to a grocery store for a flower bouquet. But I don’t want to go to the grocery store. Still, it’s a start.
A teacher, a bouquet, hmmmmmm…..
It’s pretty self explanatory. My only tip is to wrap the bouquet tightly with an elastic first. Don’t count on the ribbon to hold it tightly enough. Then wrap it with a couple spare pieces of ribbon. And put together a quick tag for the front.
You don’t bring flowers…but you do bring school supplies. And who doesn’t love a newly sharpened pencil? I bet even Neil and Babs would appreciate a few quality writing instruments. After all, they’re only human!
Happy Teacher Appreciation Week, Teachers!
