What Do You Think?

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
I'm going to try to make short. I injured myself and have an open compound fracture to my left ankle. Needless to say, I am unable to do anything for myself. I have had several people come to my house to help me do things. So I was thinking about baking and decorating some cupcakes and delivering them in a cute box with a special thank you note. Along with some cheesy line about caring for me seeing as I'll be out of commission for at least another 5 weeks. I had planned on making a couple different flavors and fillings. These would be cupcakes I would normally charge $5-$6.
Does anyone think this is appropriate thank you gift?

Sounds like a lovely way to say thankyou - especially if you are able to personalise them for each person.

I may not make perfect cakes but I gaurantee they all contain a super special ingredient .... lots and lots of love .

Agreed! So sorry to hear about your injury, that's wonderful that you have people willing to help you. Who doesn't love sweets?! And personalizing them is a nice added touch, definitely beats a thank you card!

I think it is a thoughtful gift, but I have to ask how it happened! That sort of injury is one of my worst fears, and sounds so painful! I have only broken my wrist, but the bone went into my hand, and I could see a sharp point under my skin.... Whew, but it was still under the skin! And I suppose we'll be seeing a lot of you on here for the next few weeks icon_wink.gif

If it was I, I would be delighted to get that gift!

 

I hope you get better soon!

Great, I appreciate all of your input.  I didn't want to just send a thank you card, it's lame and I don't know a single person who keeps them.  I figured since I am out of commission for about 5 more weeks, I could make cupcakes and decorate them, use pretty liners, make them look very unique for each person.  Thankfully, I can do that sitting down. lol.  I just wanted to make sure this gift wasn't seen as a cheesy gift since they all know I bake.

Long story short, my foot fell in a gopher hole and twisted (I'll leave out the gory details). I am a skydiver and after a great jump and good landing I was carrying my gear and noticed part of my parachute was dragging on the ground so I leaned over to pick it up and my foot slipped in heel first then twisted because of how my body was positioned. I could not see the stupid hole. icon_cry.gif  So yes, you will be seeing me quite a bit, and I apologize in advance for any posts that do not make sense, I am on pretty strong medications until I have the external fixator removed August 15.

I'm sorry to hear about your injury! I think your gift idea is very thoughtful. Anyone can send a card. Something made with love especially for them is much more special.

I can't even imagine jumping out of a plane, landing alright, then breaking my ankle in a gopher hole...how ironic.

So Sorry this happen to you.  I personally would love this type of gift.  I agree with Elcee - anyone can send a card but your personal touch makes it special.

I love what I do and do what I love
