Last night the boys and I put together the gifts they are giving their teachers for Christmas. I want to start by saying that my husband is a school principal and former teacher and teacher gifts are never expected, but they are always appreciated no matter what they are, but he did find that the consumable gifts were probably the ones he liked the most. So, I always try to give something that can be used up and will be useful to almost anyone.
I ran onto this cute idea on Pinterest and immediately pinned it because it fit perfectly into my consumable and useful criteria. (Plus, I really love Burt's Bees lip balm). Her printable is sooo much cuter than mine and super inexpensive, I checked to see if her shop had a holiday version, because I wanted something Christmas-y, but to no avail, so I quickly made up my own simple holiday version based on her idea.
We packaged them up in a little cellophane bag with a cute bow, to make them look a little more festive, but they could also be presented just as a card with the lip balm attached.
Please check out her cute all-occasion printable, it would be perfect to give at Christmas; during Teacher Appreciation Week; or any other time that a teacher gift is warranted.
If you would like to use my Christmas version, you can download it for free here.
Simple, Useful, Consumable, and Cute. The perfect teacher gift!!
