Our grocery store had these beautifully presented mini-rosebushes. They were in little pots wrapped with pretty paper and they were $10.99. I got a few of those and then a $15.00 Starbucks card for the school director.

Gift cards are so tricky because it's hard to find the right denomination - they just don't go very far. Like, a $15.00 Nordstrom card - The thought is nice, but they're going to have to put in some of their own cash for something other than a modest lunch at the Nordstrom cafe. It's great for Starbucks, but if I got a $15.00 card for everyone I'd really be spending more cash than I had hoped...

I also don't like the idea that someone knows just exactly how much I spent. I'd love to be able to shower them with extravagant gifts but we don't have the budget. I love to find something that's less expensive than a gift card but seems more expensive...
