Years and years ago, when I was in YW, I can specifically remember those leaders who personally remembered & recognized my birthday. I know that is weird but honestly, if you are with these girls 2 x a week for 2 years, it's nice to take them a little token on their birthday. We do recognize our YW the Sunday before or after there birthday during the opening exercises of YW but I wanted to do something small for each of them that I could deliver to them at home on their birthday.
Well, the other day I was at the dollar store for something else...(what else is new...I'm always at the dollar store for something) and I came across these cute little purses. I know they are cheap BUT they are perfect for the YW to use as scripture bags or make up bags when they go to camp. Anyway, I picked them up for each of my girls that have a birthday in the next year. I fill it with whatever their favorite snack is and deliver it to them at their house on their birthday. It's a very small token but I think it's kind of fun.
