Hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving!! We sure did. You know what though? Now it’s all Christmas, all the time 😉 Today I wanted to share an easy and affordable Teacher Christmas gift with you plus a few of my friend’s gift teacher gift ideas too! This year my theme for Christmas is SIMPLIFY. I want to enjoy the holidays and not get too wrapped up in making things magazine perfect. That’s not my life. Not by a long shot!! This Teacher Gift is totally do=able for ANYONE!
I made this Winter Survival Kit in a Cork Wine tube for my son’s amazing 5th grade teacher.
Seriously, she’s awesome. I used a Cork Wine Tube that I found at Michael’s on clearance for $0.99. I’m sure teaching a room full of 5th graders makes her want to drink, unfortunately I don’t think that would be an appropriate gift. My theme this year is definitely SIMPLIFY. I don’t like to get caught up in making things perfect and spending loads of cash.
For this teacher gift, I printed this freebie “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” print and taped it to the front of the tube and added a gift tag. Inside I added lots of Winter necessities like hot cocoa, cute socks, chapstick, lotion and hand sanitizer.
Remember my theme: Simplify. Nailed it, right? So easy but still thoughtful and fun. Plus, it was under $20! She could even keep this is her car in case she forgets any of these items at home on a cold morning before school.
I also stenciled two mugs for her (so she can drink her hot cocoa with a friend! Teachers NEED friends!!) and stuck those in the basket. I will have a tutorial for those later next week.
However, my 12 year old daughter is in middle school and has 8 teachers!! What do you suggest for gifts when you have that many to buy for?
Ok now it’s GIVEAWAY time! This is a big one!! One lucky winner will win a $100 Visa Gift Card so please use all of your entries and share these simple gift ideas with your friends on social media 🙂
