Because it has certain non-pleasant ring for me, like it's more of an obligation than a real appreciation. That's why whenever I can, I avoid it and I give my appreciation gifts at other times. Like now for example.
So, this year I thought of an interesting present for the end of the year for my son's teachers.
I asked him to draw pictures for his teachers with watercolor pencils, then I helped him to glue them to the cards.
Then he brushed them here and there with water and you can see the results.
We recently replanted our garden and I have a lot of beautiful and fragrant hyacinths and I thought, what a nice present they'll make, especially since they are from our own garden! My son helped me out and we put the bulbs in a nice box with explanation what they are and how to take care of them:
We had 2 bag designs :
And here is the whole thing:- bag, card and a gift card inside, envelope, butterfly, a scented candle and a notebook.
I hope they like them!! :-)
