Gifts, Giving and My Friday Donut

I feel like there has been a lot of gift giving and receiving going on at work lately, so I figured I would share some of the kindness…

A lady at work and I were talking about how people always bring crap (albeit yummy crap) food on birthdays. Donuts, cupcakes, cake, cookies. While it’s delicious there are so many birthdays that this food no longer becomes a special occasion food. Her birthday was a few week later and I brought her the “treats” below…

Banana Birthday

I think I told you guys how I was watching a plant for a coworker who was traveling for over 6 months in Australia. Well, for watching his plant, he brought me back some lemon butter and Vegemite. The lemon butter is oh so good and tastes like lemon meringue pie! The Vegemite however, was gross. I’ll give it another shot in a week or so. It was just too mineral tasting. Blah.
Lemon Butter VegemiteOne morning I came in to find this gem on my desk…

Sleek Starbucks MugIt’s so sleek and modern. Even the box it came in was nice. It was a very nice and unexpected gift πŸ™‚ Speaking of unexpected, I was at Target the other day and saw the Hershey’s Speedy Bunny on sale for .75 cents. I mean, how can you pass that up?!

Speedy BunnyOn my drive into Target I noticed a homeless woman sitting on the curb with two dogs. I decided to buy some dog food for them. I don’t know the woman’s situation or how she got there, but I definitely know the dogs can’t do anything about it and I wanted to help them out πŸ™‚

Dog FoodAnd last and certainly not least, was the HUGE apple fritter I got on Friday to share with my dad. A guy always brings donuts into work on Fridays from a local shop and since we both get in early, the fritter was still warm when I got it from him. I haven’t had a fritter in a LONG time and it was beyond good.

Huge Apple FritterWhat’s the last thing you gave someone?

  1. Apple fritters are my weakness…I kid you not I’ve been thinking about them for a long time, and I know it’s almost time to satisfy the urge I’ve had. I love that you bought food for the dog, definitely a priority!

  2. When I was working sometimes the break room was my downfall with doughnuts, pizza, cookies, cakes, candy, etc. I love the idea of bringing in healthy treats for birthdays. I’ll definitely carry this idea to my next job.

    • Cool beans! Ya, it’s hard sometimes because everything looks so delicious. Most of the time its just people unloading crap they don’t want in their house, haha.

      • That’s so true! I was definitely guilty of that, I would make a batch of cookies, keep a handful for myself then take the rest into work, ha ha.

  3. I have tried Vegemite before — ya, definitely gross. Lemon butter sounds pretty good though. And I could totally go for a donut today! πŸ™‚
