'"Come in! and how do you do, my dear Duchess?" cried Ribby. "I hope I see you well?"
"Quite well, I thank you, and how do you do, my dear Ribby?" said Duchess. "I've brought you some flowers..."
~ Beatrix Potter, The Tale of the Pie and the Patty Pan
It is fun to bring goodies to others! It needn't be anything excessive to show a bit of love! A few ribbons, a nice supply of cellphone bags, some sweet tags and you have yourself the makings of some adorable gift options! Duchess enjoyed giving bouquets of wildflowers. With a recycled jar and a touch of twine to fasten on one of these little cards, you have instant spring cheer!
Our free printable includes "Fresh from the Farm", "Sending Some Love", "Special Delivery" and simply "A Gift for You".
The illustration came from The Tale of the Pie and the Patty-Pan by Beatrix Potter and is one of my favorites! The pastoral background reminds me of scenes in the Victorian Era novel (and movie), Cranford. Well, moving along from my weird musings...
Some fun but inexpensive gift ideas for adults include a few bags of your favorite tea, a small jar of honey, a little book and/or a pretty tea-cup or mug (these can be found at thrift stores and stored away for these special purposes). If you raise your own chickens, the "Fresh from the Farm" tag pairs nicely with a gifted dozen of homegrown eggs. "Special Delivery" can include a pot of your homemade jam, muffins and/or scones and would be a nice treat for someone who is under the weather.
Children can be given a little bag with the matching coloring book (free printable here), a few colored pencils and some stickers.
No matter what you decide, these little spring packages are fun to make and give! You will find our free printable gift tags HERE!
