"Happiness does not result in what we get, but from what we give."

                                                                                              - Ben Carson

 

Now that Summertime is quickly approaching, and the end of school is near, We need to remember to get teacher, wedding, and hostess gifts for the summer soirees. We always think about gift giving for birthdays and holidays, but what about that special teacher in your child's life, or your best friend's daughter's wedding, or even a summer party and you want to take a hostess gift.  It's not about how much you spend, but the thought that goes into it, especially if it's someone close to you.  Even picking flowers from your garden and giving them to your friend when she invites you to lunch at her home is a kind gesture that is always appreciated.

 

Show your appreciation for your child's teacher with an end of the year gift.  Try to be somewhat creative and if your child can pick out something themselves, that's even better.  Teachers love gifts for their classrooms, like books or even supplies that they may have to spend their own money on.  If you don't know what they need or want, a gift certificate is always a great idea and you can wrap it up and give to them in a fun mug or something else that might be useful to them. If you know they love chocolate or baked goods you can make them something just for them or for their family.  One year I offered to make dinner for the teacher to take home one night and it was greatly appreciated.

Weddings are in full bloom in the summer and most brides and grooms register for their gifts.  You can always get them something on their registry, but if you know them well, think out of the box and give them something that truly fits their personality.  You can find unique glassware for cocktails and wine.  Some have funny sayings on them, or even numbers etched in them so your party guests know which glass is theirs.  Add their favorite bottle of wine or whiskey to complete the gift.  If they love to cook, get them cool cookware that can go from oven to freezer and looks pretty on the table as well.  Great serving pieces are always a good gift and maybe add a cookbook or non- perishable food items to give it a theme.
