Teacher Holiday Gifts

I put together some little Christmas goodies for K's Mother's Day Out teachers and I think they came out pretty cute!  She only has 3, so we gave my favorite hand creme (Crabtree and Evelyn's Garden Hands) and a gift certificate for a manicure.  I thought it might be fun to give them something to pamper them over the holiday break!



I seriously don't know what I would do without cellophane bags and grosgrain ribbon.  
They are my staples in gift wrapping.  
This is the first year we have needed 'teacher' gifts, do you have some gift ideas to share???

  3. My only idea is to always go the gift card/ certificate route! I love/ treasure EVERY gift ever given to me where I worked with children, but I know the most useful were always the gift cards!
    I really wanted to comment and say - Adorable gifts! So cute! And I love all of your sparkly home decor. Thanks for blogging and sharing with 'us'!

  7. I teach 2nd grade and any gift is very much appreciated by teachers. I teach in an urban area so my students' families cannot typically afford gifts for their teachers. I am fine with that and understand it completely. I think most teachers just appreciate a note or a phone call saying thank you for what you do. Anything above that is just the icing on the cake. Happy holidays!

  8. Each holiday season I make a couple of batches of homemade soap. Everyone always looks forward to getting a couple of bars from me. It sounds intimidating to make but it really doesn't take me any more time than making a batch of muffins.

  9. Lovely idea! I give a special Christmas ornament usually from Wedgewood or Swarovski, they always go down well! As an ex teacher though it is the handwritten note of heartfelt thanks that I most appreciated!
