    The front was personalized scrabble paper! It had my name in the middle & secret Santa in the corner! So personal and adorable.

    And it was covered in this super fun and colorful duct tape!

    I opened the box, and the inside lid was decorated with this poem, printed on legal paper, and I could not love all of this any more if I TRIED...

    Pure maple syrup from a farmer's market in Dana's town!

    I honestly don't think I've ever had real maple syrup before. We always bought like Aunt Jamima. Is that pure? I don't really know a lot about maple syrup. I'm excited to try it!

    A bag of fresh roasted coffee that smelled so good I almost stopped to brew a cup.

    A SECOND mug from another local coffee shop. (A different one than the tea & coffee.) I love mugs! Especially ones with unique and cool logos! This honestly is probably my favorite part. β˜•οΈπŸ’•

    Dana said this was mostly so she wouldn't eat them. As your new friend, I am willing to take and bear this deliciously minty cross for you. 😘

    A bottle of lavender essential oil because "teachers need soothing care too" and because Dana is the sweetest human.
