Teacher Appreciation Gift Idea's!

Good Morning!

Is anyone else out there scrambling?  Teacher appreciation week is this week while Mother's Day is Sunday... and if you're a DIY-er or Handmade-er, you've probably got a stack of supplies in your office/dining room/kitchen waiting to be manipulated into the perfect gift... just like me!

So, with only today and tomorrow to get the Teacher Appreciation Gifts together, here's what Adam and I did.  I pulled up Pinterest, searched for Teacher Appreciation Gifts and, after selecting a few that I liked for each of Adam's Teachers, I had Adam pick the final gifts.  I think he did a pretty good job!

Ms. Michelle is his Teacher Assistant and she's WONDERFUL!  She's super nice, caring, funny and friendly - she genuinely cares about all the kids in her classes.  She's also a young Mom who is super cute and stylish, so Adam picked out this gift idea...

You can find the printable "File" tags here.  So, Adam and I went to Target and picked out the following:

Fun Nail Polish - 2 different colors

A fun nail file

 I used washi tape to tape 1 of the polishes to the file and added the "File" tag.  Then we put the other polish along with the make up bag and a Bow Clutch in a kraft gift bag and added 3 rows of the same washi tape to tie it all together.  It turned out pretty cute and totally fit Ms. Michelle's personality!

Adams Preschool Teacher, Mrs. Dierking is AMAZING.  I cannot express how good it feels to leave my child in her care.  She's patient, engaging, fun, kind, compassionate, creative and I truly believe that she loves my little boy.  She's a gardener so the gift that Adam picked out is perfect!

You can find the printable here...  so, we made a stop in the Garden Dept. of Target and came out with the following...

A pretty outdoor gardening bag by Threshold
Some gardening tools (we actually got the Bulb Planter but I couldn't find a pic of it) and a box of flower bulbs.  We packaged everything in the outdoor bag and tied the "Bloom" tag to the bag.
We really love Adam's Preschool, Teachers, Staff and couldn't think of a better fit for him or us!  It's been a wonderful experience and it's going to be super hard next year not seeing everyone at that school, but we've excited for Kindergarten!
Have a great day!
