There are officially 12 weeks until Christmas TODAY!
Can you handle that!
I am going to be doing a countdown of sorts each week with my favourite Christmas things.
Since teacher gifts are generally the first gifts we have to start handing out I thought I would start with this.
I generally make these gifts myself because the older kids have over 10 teachers between the two of them so I have to try and find cheap but nice ideas for them.
We have done cookies and brownies – both worked so well and I had lots of fun baking them. I collected boxes and bottles throughout the year to package them in so each gift was the same but different.
I love this idea from My Print Boutique. The pot plant is so great if you know the teacher enjoys gardening because then you can add in a packet of seeds or two for her to plan.
These are two very cute and simple ideas. You can take an ordinary item and add a quirky saying on to personalise it a little bit. If asked teachers prefer gifts that can use, so while you may think a hand wash is boring, the teacher may really appreciate its usefulness.
Mugs are always a win, everyone uses them and you can buy some plan ones and write your own little message on with some Sharpies or get your child to draw a picture and full them up with some cookies or chocolates.
What are you buying teachers this year?
You can see the links to all of these ideas (and more) on my Pinterest board!
