    30th Birthday Gift: Bag

    I made this bag for a teacher I work with that is turning 30. Is it ok to just give someone a bag, or should I put something in it as well? I was thinking I should. My husband suggested cookies and I do make a mean oatmeal raisin dark chocolate that she really likes. What do you all think?

    Cookies are always good! Don't really think you have to put something in it though. You can give her the bag and send me the cookies. Lol!!!

    The bag is fabulous! I am turning 30 in 20 days..hint hint LOL.
    The bag is more than enough, but who'd say no to cookies?

    The bag is very useful and beautiful. I agree, it is not necessary to put something in it, but the cookies are a great idea. Maybe your husband is hinting for you to make some for him, lol!
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, WINE IN THE OTHER, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO, what a ride!"
