I am blessed to have a good friend with a birthday in late December, while my own is at the beginning of January. We try to get together early in the year to celebrate. Since personalized gifts are nice, here is what Laura's is:
here is some of that to go with the tea. It is in a box from Harrods department store in London, but the cookies were bought locally.
Then I turned here. Multiple verses of scripture were copied, then printed out. You can buy Scripture Tea in stores, but it seemed better to pick the verses myself for a friend.
And here is the bag, ready to take tomorrow when we meet for lunch.
If you are interested in a similar project, learn from my experience. Make sure the tea bags you buy have strings and tags on them already, because otherwise, it's way more of a hassle than you want to fool with, trust me. You could also do Novel Tea, with the first lines of famous books for someone who is a reader, or any number of other types of quotations. Quirky words for Scrabble would be fun, too.
That's my project du jour. Now back to my regularly scheduled round of chores, cat wrangling and the like.
Take it easy!
