Is it really only Wednesday?! This week has been crazy busy, and late last night I realized that I hadn’t yet put together a welcome gift for a new employee starting today. I turned to my trusty source, Pinterest, and came up with an easy idea that I knew I could pull together quickly.
My first step was to raid my card drawer, and as luck would have it I had a few cards leftover from a donut card set from Paper Source. It looks like this set is sold out online, but check your local Paper Source, or draw or download and print a quick doodle of a donut on a blank card set! (Quick side note, I think it’s always helpful to have a set of blank cards on hand for any last minute gift needs. These are my favorite)
I wrote the message from my inspiration photo on the white tag “glad to have YOU on the team. Now we are WHOLE!” I taped the tag to the card, wrote a quick message inside, and then headed to the grocery store.
At the grocery store, I picked up a sprinkle donut, a little box of donut holes, and a bouquet of flowers. The amazing and helpful staff in the floral department at my local store put the flowers in a vase for me, and helped me wrap the donut and donut holes in cellophane.
The gift was ready to go in under thirty minutes, which included my trip to the grocery store. I call that a win!
This need inspired me to create a Quick and Easy Gifts Pinterest board, so now I have somewhere to turn the next time that happens. It’s inevitable with the busyness of life, right?!
