Teacher Gifts

I have 3 teachers to give gifts to this year, and I wanted them to be something useful. I have a friend who is a teacher and she has told me about some of the things that she gets for gifts. So I have been thinking long and hard about this and here is what I have come up with.

For my kindergartener - who has 2 teachers - I wanted to do the same thing, but they are quite different in age. So I came up with this: I was going to use the refrigerated roll of dough, but since my little guy has to take them to school, I did not want them to go bad. The saying is: "Thought we'd be an ANGEL and give you a little extra DOUGH this holiday season." I picked up the angel cutters last year after Christmas on clearance thinking that I could come up with something good for them.

My next kid has a grandma for a teacher and she loves all things teacher related. I was doing some glass etching for a craft group last month and thought I would make this for her. After asking Thing #2 what she thought about this for her teacher she was very excited. I got the glass jar at the dollar store and the etching cream from Hobby Lobby. I had the ribbon (notice how it is quite similar to those cards I made?), and the pencils on hand. It is hard to see in the picture, but it does say PENCILS around the cup.

Last but not least, my oldest. I would have to say this teacher is my favorite. She has put a lot of work into my child and really is interested in helping him. She is a very young teacher, and dresses cute and stylish. I have seen these flower clips all over and thought that I would give it a try. I would have taken a picture of it in my hair, but I am giving it away and thought that would not be wise. Thing #1 thought that she would like them a lot. I was wishing that I could get those clip/pin things to put them on, but I cannot find them anywhere.

 Now that I am done with teacher gifts I am on my way to doing neighbor/friend gifts. I have some great ideas, so as soon as I get them done I will post those.
