Yesterday, I wrote about one part of the teacher’s day gifts I had prepared for Phoebie’s teachers this year – origami tulips. Today, here’s part two of the gifts I prepared. This one was for the staff team at the school.
I know I don’t have to go to the extend of preparing something for the staff team, but I wanted to show my appreciation for them. I don’t go to Phoebie’s school often but of the few times I have been there, the staff team never fails to impress me with the amount of “heart” they put into caring for the children.
Recently, I am into baking with premix cake mixtures. I love the therapeutic process of baking but I don’t necessarily have time to bake from scratch, so premix gives me the best of both worlds – the baking satisfaction and time saved.
This was also the first time I made cupcakes. The first sentiment I got was how expensive cupcakes sold in cake shops actually are. Of course, the cost would be justified if the ingredients in the cupcakes are special, but otherwise, I now think I may just want to bake them if my kids want to eat.
So there, this was my second gift for Phoebie’s teachers. I hope the staff team liked it.
Overall, I probably spent less than $20 for all the gifts. Not extravagant, not expensive but presentable and made with appreciation.
