- Wedding: January 2013
I was really hoping that we would avoid this altogether, but I have received several odds and ends at work– little boxes of cookies, a tea towel, a small sampler box of Sees Candy, etc.– this week, which makes me think “Crap, now I have to do something for these people”!
I work in an office of 100 people, and we are divided into teams, and these little items are across group lines. I know conventional, practical wisdom says that I can just say “thank you” and call it a day, but I feel bad. I had thought I might make a batch of M&M cookies (the normal request for work functions) and bag those for people, but I am recovering from a cold right now, so A) I don’t really feel like baking and B) I don’t know that anyone wants to consume anything I prepare right now…Also, keep in mind that the people who know me well enough to gift anything know that I’m paying for a wedding that happens in 1 month and 9 days. FI and I (and our families) aren’t even exchanging gits- just cards- due to finances. Advice? Help!
