Teacher Christmas Gifts

It's Christmas time...YEAH!!!  Craft and gift time for the teachers in my life.  My youngest is in preschool so we still do the teacher gifts (unlike my teenager who would just die if I sent gifts to his teachers in High school - although I am sure those teachers would like a little pick me up during the holidays also).

Drake's school had these sheets at the front desk with the teachers for each class and one for the office personnel that had info about them.  Stuff like their favorite colors, scents, food....etc.  I personally love this idea!!  I know some people don't want them to expect gifts by putting a "requirement list" out there but I would really prefer to give people stuff they like then just random junk so this is a phenomenal help to me!!

This year I used their favorite colors from the info sheets to put together a little foot care kit for the holiday.  I included a fuzzy pair of socks with coordinating nail polish.  For the teachers in Drakes classroom, I included some lotion and a gift card for some Mexican food. 

OK - I know that Mexican food is not "foot oriented" but who doesn't want Mexican food all the time anyway.  It seemed like a good idea at the time, don't judge!

 

I made these tags and printed them on card stock in the coordinating favorite color and then just attached to the plastic bags.  

The back had the name of the teacher and Drake's name so we could drop them off to each person even if they weren't at their desk. 

Here are some of the ones I made.....they were all different to fit each person.  

 

One of the teachers is a man so I did something a little different for him.  He loves Coke Zero and Reeces so we just made him a No Stress Kit for the holidays instead!   
 

Merry Christmas Everyone!!

    1. It was the standard card stock from the office supply that comes in a rheem. If you were going to do gift certificates, I would just make them in word and also print on cardstock. Have a great day!
