I’m sure many of you are like me…trying to think of gifts to give to my sons’ teachers (on a very limited budget, that is).
I need two gifts for Jonathan’s teachers, two for Luke’s teachers, one for the librarian, the gym teacher, the music teacher, the enrichment teacher, etc.
Adam has two teachers, plus a music teacher, plus two Mom’s Day Out teachers…
Eli has two Mom’s Day Out teachers, plus a music teacher…(WAIT, that’s me!) Skip that one.
Does your list look like this? Shorter? Longer?
Well, here is a little gift that is inexpensive but thoughtful for some of the teachers on your list.
It’s a Teacher Assort-“mint” Bag…
Here is what the poem says on front…
Thanks for your commit-"mint" to help me learn.
Thanks for your encourage-"mint" to always do my best.
Thanks for your involve-"mint" in my life.
Thanks for your invest-"mint" of time and energy
to make school such a great place to be.
Thanks for making each day an enjoy-"mint".
Thanks for helping to create a nice environ-"mint"
for me to learn and grow.
Everything you have done this year
has really “mint” a lot to me!!!
All you need to make these little bags are a variety of “mint” candy…
I spent under $14.00 on this candy at Walmart. I was able to make 8 bags with this, which makes each bag around two dollars to make.
I filled some plastic bags (that I already had) with the candy and tied a ribbon around the top (that I already had). :)
Here is what the back looks like…
I KNOW there is a much cuter way to wrap these up, but I was just using what I already had on hand.
I printed the poem out on my computer and cut around it with scalloped scissors. Then I just glued it to a piece of red paper and taped it to the bag.
Like I said, if you want to get fancy and use really cute bags, ribbons, and labels, you can. I know you fabulously “crafty” women could come up with some great ideas.
And if you do, share them with me. :)
The great thing about these bags is that you can easily add a gift card to the inside of the bag to make the gift a little more “meaty”. If you know what I mean…
As a former teacher, I love little gifts like these. They may have not cost a lot to make, but the thoughtfulness is worth more than money!
I was thinking about doing a spur of the moment linky party for other great teacher gift ideas. Would anyone come?
I’ll let you know if I do!
Have a blessed day!
