Easy Gift that says Thank You!

Today at work we are honoring our volunteers. My department has set-up a luncheon. All of the department staff are bringing in food to pass. 

We wanted to give each volunteer a little something as our departments way of saying "THANK YOU". 

Our gift is a group effort by brainstorming as a team we came up with the idea. I am the maker of the gifts. When I get to the hospital we will be adding a card to each cup - the card reads Kindness Sprouts from Volunteers.  Judy is making the cards - Laura thought of the saying and Barb thought of getting a flat of flowers and I thought of the cup and picks.  

Check out the neat little gifts. So easy to make - All you need is one flat of flowers - 2 packs of paper cups - ribbon and I asked the floral department at my local grocery store if I could buy some picks. 

Place one flower in a paper cup - add the pic and ribbon then the card.  DONE!  

Total cost for 25 gifts was $14.99 for flowers - $2 for cups, $2.50 for 25 picks and 47 cents for ribbon = $19.99  Less than $1 per person.  

I have learned over the years it is not the cost of a gift that counts ~ it is the love put into making the gift special that means the most. 

I also want to tell every 
VOLUNTEER everywhere!
You DO Make a Difference!


  1. That is such a fantastic idea. It's always the thought that counts.

  2. This is such a sweet gift and it can bloom all summer!

  3. What a cute and sweet idea! I am sure they did love their gift. It is always the simple things that bring smiles to a person face.
