I came up with a silly poem to give my secret Santa teacher pal on our final day, and I just thought I’d share that with you. But please be aware that you can eliminate the religious stanza to make it more adaptable to your Secret Santa.

I’m sure you’re thinking daily

Who sent this stuff to you?

She’s poetic and she’s crafty

Or at least she thinks that’s true

 

Perhaps you’d like a hint

Perhaps you want a clue

Well brace yourself, it’s coming

That’s what I’m about to do

 

The first time that I met you

I thought you were a farce

“No one’s that nice,” I said to myself

“She’s faking it, of course.”

 

How foolish was I, how stupid

To think it wasn’t you

With your sweet smile and clever eyes

And all the kind things you do

 

You had a secret. I didn’t know

That Jesus was in your heart

Your kindness is a reflection

Of those who stand apart

 

So now I understand

Your goodness is genuine

I can’t believe I thought you fake

The error is definitely mine

 

And someday when we’re old and gray

And ready to leave this place

I’ll see you up in heaven

With a genuine smile on your face

 

Unless they only let Catholics in

In which case I’m outta luck

I’ll wave to you from hell I guess

But that will really suck!

 

Now, of course, you’ll want to alter some of the words to fit your secret Santa pal. For example, you might want to change “Catholics” to “Baptists” (or whatever religion applies to your secret Pal belongs to). You could even change it to “Unless they only let science teachers in” if the person’s religion is unknown. Also, if the person is not a Christian, just eliminate the “Jesus was in your heart” stanza from the poem, and you’re good to go.

And remember, my sister site is a lot of fun too: https://chellywood.com/ It offers free, printable doll clothes patterns for anyone who enjoys sewing.

#Summer #GiftBasket idea and poem for #SecretPal @ SecretPalTeachers.WordPress.com

SecretPalTeachers.WordPress.com for all your Secret Santa and Secret Pal or Office Buddy gift ideas.

Artwork by ASF. Poem by Chelly Wood.

As my regular followers know, this website is all about gift ideas for Secret Pals/Office Buddies/Secret Santas.

What do you give your secret pal in July? How about everything he/she will need to enjoy a good beach read?

Put together a gift basket that’s lined with a beach towel and stuffed with snacks, sunscreen, flip-flops, and a pair of sunglasses. Print the bookmark shown above and slip it into a book. Drop the book into the basket, and your pal is off to the beach for a little rest and relaxation.

But what if your office pal policy is to keep gifts under $10? Give each piece of the “gift basket” as a separate gift, and offer the bookmark and book as the grand finale.

You can also save money by purchasing goodies at your local dollar store. Buy books used at yard sales and flea markets.

Want to show your appreciation for my free cards, poems, and gift ideas? Please do so by likingpinning, tweeting, and/or somehow sharing my watermarked images (above) with others.

#Administration #Secretary

What do you give your Administrative Professional (i.e. secretary) on Administrative Professional Day? It needs to be clever, eye-catching, and it should demonstrate how much you appreciate your secretary’s hard work.

A DIY gift is always nice. Why not use “You’re the key to our success” as your theme?

Include a poem:

To our success

You are the key

We’d be locked out

If it weren’t for thee

Your golden wisdom

Turns things around

You can handle

Every problem found

Happy Administrative Professionals Day!

It’s funny… I googled the heading for this post, and guess what came up… my own blog! I guess the universe is telling me to avoid cheating and write my own damned poem.

So here’s a Valentine’s Day poem for your secret pal:

 

A paper heart

Framed in lace

Chocolate candy

And a happy face

A big, red ribbon

A card for you

Your secret pal

Works at this zoo too

Hot cocoa is an inexpensive gift to give your secret Santa, and you can have a lot of fun with it. Just check out the links I’ve offered below to various hot cocoa gift ideas on Pinterest:

And here’s a little poem to add to your gift:

 

When winter takes its toll

And staying warm is your goal

They say cocoa warms the soul

Place your hands on a mug

And chug-a-lug-lug

It’s like getting a nice warm hug!
