This year our office staff, of which I am new to, decided to do a gift exchange (one of those, buy for either sex and you can steal it kinda thing). We were to spend no more than $15. It could be a gag gift or something nice. I am not good at gag gifts, what I think is funny isn't, so I usually go with the nice gift. This year I went with one of those double walled water glasses and I put a $15 Starbucks gift card in the bag as well. I got the water glass super cheap and so I really didn't go over budget. Tomorrow is the office party, with a catered lunch and this gift exchange. Sounds like fun.
I am new to my job so I didn't think about giving something to the schools I worked with until today. I remembered how my teachers loved getting a cookie tray during the holidays. I quickly ordered four holiday cookie trays for my four small schools. Then I needed to do the same for my five large schools. I decided to go with a fruit basket for them. It was rather expensive, so I think next year I will send oranges to my school from a grove in Florida. My father-in-law used to do that and the oranges were so delicious!
