To be perfectly honest, I didn’t get an aweful lot for Christmas. That is not what matters. I gave more than I recieved 😉
Seriously though, I did get only 2 presents.
I split this post up into 2 sections. RECIVING to show what I recieved and GIVING to show what I gave.
I got a box of Celebrations (an assortment of sweets) from my aunt and I got a box of Crackers from my dad’s friend. I also got a £5 note from him too, which was a nice surprise!
In case you aren’t familar with what you can do with a £5, I will tell you – With a £5 note (or coins!) you can buy a DVD, or a pack of 10 re-writable discs, or a remote control replacement, a pack of 50 straws, a gift for someone, a chain, a bracelet, a keyring etc… Basically, anything basic and of quality if thats possible lol.
Like I said before, I gave more than I recieved.
I gave 4 gifts to my teachers ;).. no, not 4 each xD
I gave a box of Ferrero Rocher’s to my Form Tutor. I gave it to her because it is more of a luxury chocolate and I knew she would love it. (No, she is not posh.) She is the teacher I see every single day. She is the teacher where we get all our information from. When I gave it to her, She was thrilled with it. She said, I quote: “You’re so sweet” LOL. It was nice of her to say so.
I then gave a box of Milk Chocolate Sweets to my English Teacher. She is a wonderful teacher. She helped me pass 5 peices of coursework. Last year and this year. I love being naughty sometimes so I tricked her before I gave it to her.
- I went up to her classroom at the end of the day and said “Miss! I’ve got some coursework for you to mark.”
- She gave me a confused look. I should have taken a picture of it lol.
- “Oh.. ok.” She said. Then She called me into the class
- I looked into my bag, pretending to get the “coursework” out. I pulled out the chocolates and handed them to her.
- “Coursework?! *laugh* Whats this?” She asked. “It’s a present from me to you.” I replied.
It was a funny “trick” and I sure made her day!
Next, I gave a box of Terry’s Chocolate Orange to my ICT teacher. She is a really kind teacher. She helped me alot. I’ve left my USB in her class a few times and she comes to the rescue – she always finds it. She also helped me in my ICT work and my work “is always pleasing to mark” 😉
I gave her the box of chocolate and she was thrilled with it. It was wrapped in gift wrap and as soon as she saw it she got up and gave me a hug. She didnt unwrap it or anything. It was a werid thing to recieve from a teacher but it goes to show that even the smallest of gifts mean alot to people. – unopened too!
Finally, I gave a box of Terry’s chocolate orange Segsations to my Graphics Teacher. She has taught me for the past 4 years and I’ve really got to know her. This is the class where I am making the point of sale display in. She is kind, funny and a technical teacher. I really like being in her class.
She too was thrilled with the gift. She said “My favourites! You must have known!!” Yup, I knew…
I really loved making my teachers happy. It made me feel good 😉
Ofcourse I did give my friends small gifts too!
Sometimes, giving is more important than reciving. Don’t you agree?
