End of Year Teacher Gifts & a Giveaway!


It's the last week of school here & I've got some really cute & affordable End Of Year Teacher Gift Ideas to share with you today....and a giveaway!

I have a very creative & talented friend, Kelly Smith, who has given me some great ideas over the years. This year she has lots of cute ones for Teacher Gifts.

She purchased these glass vases at the dollar store, and the letters @ Michael's. On the jar with the pencils the tag said: "Thank you for helping our children write the future".

On the one with the candy ( Hershey's Hugs & Kisses) and the tag said," Thanks for all you do, Hugs & Kisses." How cute is that? I tried to re-create it, but my version was not near as cute.

I filled mine w/ candy. I emailed my kid's classmates' parents & asked them to ask their child their favorite thing about the teacher, or favorite memory of their teacher for the year. I then typed the replies & printed them on a pretty piece of paper, rolled it up, tied it w/ a ribbon, & stuck it in the center of the candy in the vase. On that ribbon I attached this little tag...I also bought a 100 Grand candy bar & tied this little tag on it for the bus driver that says, "Thank you for being such an awesome bus driver Mr Davis! You deserve "100 Grand"! Love, Gracie".

Being the chocolate lover that I am I have to share this. I got the huge bags of candy on sale at Publix, buy 1 get 1 free. I had enough for all 3 teachers, and still had lots left over. I was very excited to add my candy stash! ~wink~

More of Kelly's creations....
These jars were purchased at Wal-Mart & spruced up w/ her vinyl letters from Uppercase Living. The letters are a 4" and they are $1.30 each.The jar with the black top was $8.97 and the one with glass top was $6.97.

Here is a water bottle, with a cardstock paper holder on it and a crystal light drink mix. On it she wrote, "Thanks for "quenching" the "thirst for knowledge".
Check out these adorable jars!

The gumball jars tag reads, "Thanks for "Chewsing" to share your talent (or to teach) at ( your school name). (your childs name) had a "ball" this year."

Love it!!!

How cute is this set??The bucket, pitcher, cups, plates & bowls all came from Wal-mart. The letters are from Uppercase Living....which Kelley sells and is offering a giveaway today from!!!
