Bailey’s Irish Creme Truffles

Bailey's Irish Creme Truffles

I am always looking for gift ideas, especially for my son’s teachers. My son has Autism, so he is in special education. His classes usually have a teacher and a handful of teacher assistants helping in the classroom!

Every time a special occasion rolls around, I am always searching for inspiration on gifts for his teachers! I only wish I were crafty or creative enough to make a cute goody bag!

A simple gift idea would be a houseplant! I am addicted to houseplants, so if I were to ever gift one, it would be an easy care houseplants, such as a spider plant or snake plant. I understand that not everyone has a “green thumb” as I seem to kill every succulent I’ve had!
