Year End Teacher Gifts

I have struggled this year for gifts for teachers because Avery has a male teacher. I found about idea on Pinterest (of course!). It was a basket for a Father’s Day gift full of BBQ items. I knew I’d hit the nail on the head!! So I set out to find what I could to fill the basket. I decided to do the same for Blake’s teacher and do it in more girly colors.

Here’s what was in them:

Plastic bowl – $1 at Walmart
Oven mitt – $1 at Target
Kabob holder – $3 at Target
Tongs – $1 at Walmart
Lighter stick – $1 at Target
Skewers – $1.99 at Target
BBQ sauce – sale price of $.88
Sweet & Spicy Rub for meat – homemade (don’t know what it cost but not much)

Then I just added some colored tissue paper. Looks pretty and is useful. I hate giving gifts that they can never use.

Teacher Appreciation Gifts

It’s that time of year again when we need to say a huge THANK YOU to the teachers in our lives!  They mean so much to me as they take care of and teach my children every day.  I truly appreciate everything they do…so I like to show them that they are appreciated.

Here are the gifts that I put together for them:

I used this recipe for the body scrub.  I put it in a simple canning jar, tied a ribbon around it and made a cute little label.  I also put a label on the back with instructions on how to use it.

The foot scrub and hand soap were purchased from Bath & Body Works.

I added a little note that said ‘Pamper yourself…you deserve it!’  Something simple but I’m sure they’ll love them!  I know I would!

So don’t forget to get the teachers in your life a little something special…and don’t forget it is also daycare provider appreciation on Friday…this gift would work for them too!
