      I am trying to figure out what to do for my son’s daycare center. He has several teachers and I want to do something for them. I have considered baking cookies or a cake for them to share during the day, then giving them each a candle or potpurri of some type.

      How do you make potpurri? Anybody know? Any other tips?

      I am looking at gifting 10 people here. For work, we always take days on the calendar and prepare meals that everyone gets to participate in. We have a slow cooker and we put out a nice spread with everyone bringing a portion of the meal.

      It is great. Herlean

      and tins
      full of homemade cookies and candies. For those with special dietary
      restrictions, we alter accordingly.

      In years past, we’ve included:

      Snowballs (aka Russian tea cakes, Mexican wedding cakes), Candy Cane
      cookies, Polvorones (anise-flavored, cinnamon-sugar covered little
      cookies that melt in your mouth), shortbread, chocolate
      dipped “oreos” with sprinkles or nuts, rum-balls, and chocolate
      covered cherries.

      Other idea are simple cross-stitch ornaments (may I suggest the
      blackwork archives
      for starters, homemade jar candles (you can find all the ingredients
      you need at your local craft store), homemade soaps or lotions, or
      simple quilts.

      wal-mart and joann fabrics both have pre-done quilt-look material.
      all you need to do is find batting (a hint: old blankets from the
      goodwill work wonderfully for this!) and a sheet or appropriate
      material
      for the back, stitch it together on the sides and do a
      little hand embroidery to keep the layers together.

      good luck!
