October should be given the title of “Official Candy Month.” I mean in just a few weeks, kids will be running around their neighborhoods begging for it, and their neighbors will give it away willingly. What a crazy tradition! Now, it’s one that I whole-heartedly agree with (as far as the candy goes, not so much the wicked witches and ghosts). I’m a candy girl and that doesn’t agree so much with my desired dress size, but it is something that makes me happy.
Lately though people have been looking for ways to create inexpensive yet meaningful gifts. As parents, we are all aware that teacher gift time can get quite expensive, so finding cheap gifts is always a plus. That’s when the idea for “Sweet Treats” began to turn up. If you check out Pinterest these days, you can find tons of ways to give a box of candy or a beverage along with a cute saying that encourages the receiver. For example, a tag that reads “Bursting with happiness that you’re my friend” could be attached to a pack of Starburst. Or what about a Coke can with a tag attached that says, “I ‘soda’ think you’re amazing!”
The ideas are limitless, but the best thing is much of the work has already been done. Check out these links below to find a perfect word gift to give this weekend.
