Give a gift that counts. It should be thoughtful, pretty and make sense. Think about the person you are giving the gift to and ask yourself if, ‘they would like and appreciate it’, if not then go to plan B. When I give teacher/staff gifts I want to say within a maximum budge of $5. We do go in on a ‘class gift’ for the regular teachers, but I like to give to the supporting staff and principals. I start thinking about gift a month before school ends. That way I give myself enough time to shop on a budget.
We tried planting Peppermint seeds, but they didn’t germinate in time, but still made a really fun gift to give. I found these pops just as they are at “The Christmas Tree Shop” for $3.99. I wrote “thank you” myself, added tissue & used a close pin for the tea bag.
Colorful tissue adds interested to the gift.
I like to use baskets to deliver gifts with the boys in school.
I found they great peanut shaped ‘Inspire’ dishes at Micheal’s for $1.99.
Collect all your items then figure out the best ways to put everything together. I like the give to be on display and not in a gift bag. Gift bags are expensive and I’ve found you don’t need them if you have tissue paper and ribbon!
I picked this canister up at Micheal’s for $2.99, added Red Sox peanuts for $1.99 and wrote “thanks for being our Healthy Nut”. This was for the Gym teacher!
I had already had tissue paper, “thank you” stickers and ribbon on hand, making this an easy gift to put together.
I picked up some of these bath goods at the local grocery store for $1.99 and the soap was on clearance at Micheal’s for $1.00.
I used tissue, ribbon and a sticker to put the gift together.
On some I cut out paper and used double stick tape to attach to the ribbon.
Just use what you have!
