Let Us Do the Dishes For You!

We love a useful, fun, relatively inexpensive gift!  Beth made these for some of her co-workers at her school for Christmas gifts, (Did we mention she's a teacher?) but they can easily be adapted for just about any holiday or recipient.  They are perfect for when you need a little something to show someone you care -- a neighbor, the mail carrier, teacher, etc.

1st:  You'll need gallon size storage or freezer bags (Aren't the penguins so adorable?)

You'll also need:
Large Paper/Plastic Plates
Smaller Plates 

Napkins (Love how these match, because we're all about the matching! ;) )
Finally, Plastic Utensils
Stack each item, one on top of the other.
Example:  A family of 4 gets 4 of each item.
Slip it all into a baggie and write a little note that says something like this:

Let Us Do the Dishes For You!
Merry Christmas!

Aren't they ADORABLE?!
Simple, easy, and have had some great feedback.

Other ideas:  Include bowls, cups, or other paper goods and wrap in cellophane with ribbon
                     Throw in a favorite recipe or ingredient
                     Add dessert or mints for that little something "extra" ;)

We can't wait to hear your ideas and feedback!

Already love ya!

Always in our PJs,
Annette & Beth
