Teacher Gifts & Printable

I'm guessing most of you have sent your child's teacher a Christmas gift already.  We just got ours all put together and sent off today.  If you still need an idea for this year (or maybe you're super on the ball and are already thinking about next year), here's one for you.


We LOVE the little oranges available this time of year.  We buy a bag every week, and my boys devour them!  Every time we sit down for a meal my three-year-old says, "I'll go get the orange to peel."  He really likes the peeling process! 
 Anyway, I loved getting treats and goodies as a teacher, but sometimes something a little more healthy was nice.  For my twins' teacher I just bought a small glass bowl at the dollar store and wrapped some oranges in clear plastic wrap.  I tied it with a cute red ribbon and add a gift tag I'd made with my Cricut Preserves Cartridge (this cartridge has tons of cute tag, and card shapes to be used).




For my wrapping, I used a roll of brown craft paper, added red yarn, a tissue paper flower (I use these for everything!), and another gift tag I made.


I have to say I think my favorite part of the whole gift may have been this cute card.  I found it at Michaels yesterday in their 2 for $3 bins.  And guess what?  They were on sale for 50 cents!  I bought all they had left (which was only four).  So, hurry out to Michaels and stock up.


I got so excited to wrap the present that I forgot to take a picture of what was inside. :)  I found a teaching quote on Pinterest and retyped it.  I printed it out on white card stock and put it in a black 5X7 frame from the dollar store.  I have a link here if you'd like to print one out for yourself.  This quote is great for any time of year, so if you've already given your Christmas gift, save this for another occasion.  


I hope you found something you liked.  As a former teacher, I know how much small tokens of appreciation mean.  It was fun to get gifts, but the thought meant so much more!  I still have a file of notes from students and parents that I will treasure forever!  Teachers are amazing and need to be reminded of it.

  1. Thanks for representing us teachers! To those of you reading this post, middle school and high school teachers still appreciate gifts! It's not just the elementary teachers! :)

    1. You bet they do! Thanks for the reminder. I don't know how those middle & high school teachers do it. I was glad to have first grade issues to deal with, not everything that comes with adolescence. My hats off to them!

    2. Thân thể Hồng Điệp run lên, sau khi nam tử anh tuấn uy vũ này rời khỏi cơ thể của cô ta, cô ta không tự chủ lùi sau mấy bước. Hắc khí trên mặt hoàn toàn biến mất, sự đáng sợ trên khuôn mặt tái nhợt trong nháy mắt khôi phục lại thần trí.

      Khi một rìu của Sất Hổ bổ tới, tạo ra ở giữa không trung một vệt sáng dài, yêu vật kia lại một lần nữa gào thét vung trảo chống lại.

      - Phanh!

      Cái rìu bị yêu vật trảo đánh trúng từ đó rơi ra vô số cánh hoa màu đen.

      Ánh mắt Sất Hổ vô cùng mãnh liệt, hắn tiếp tục đánh xuống.

      - Phanh!

      Móng vuốt của yêu vật vỡ vụn, lộ ra hai chiếc nhụy hoa.

      - Phanh! Phanh! Phanh!

      Liên tiếp ba rìu đã làm cho nhụy hoa bị vỡ nát hoàn toàn. Kèm theo những rìu bổ xuống của Sất Hổ là những tiếng kêu gào của yêu vật cùng với đó là sự vỡ nát của chiếc sừng trên đầu, hóa thành những điểm sáng màu đỏ.

  3. I'm new around here but it was so great to have a teacher give advise on teacher gifts!! (You know what you like!) We don't celebrate Christmas as a family but I think I'm going to send something at some random time...would that be weird? We appreciate her everyday although this year she's had to spend a lot of time at the hospital with her dad. I can sure tell with out asking if she's in the classroom or not! Anyway, thanks a mil!

  5. The textures can come with three dimensional feel or it can just be a texture printed on a smooth plain sheet of paper. Textured gift wrap paper can be ideal choices for circular containers such as tins, cylinders or flasks.Nounours Géant

  8. Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the web the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people think about worries that they just do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
