Teacher Gift Idea

It was last minute, but I put together a small reusable container full of little things for our new first graders teacher. Which gets me thinking, Should Miss Kinder now be Miss Firster? Not as cute at all. I'm going to have to think on that one.

I used a small plastic container with a lid from IKEA and filled it with a selection of teas, vitamin drink mixes, some great hand cream and a small sized hand sanitizer. I tied it up with a simple ribbon and a note to the teacher wishing her a great year and letting her know I'm available to help in the classroom with anything she needs.

My hope is it helps her know she is important to us and we wish her well with the year, as well as to let her know we are here to help.

Good luck to all of your schoolchildren. These days are very bittersweet.

Great thinking! I have only one item I would include (married to a teacher as I am):

Chocolate, dark

Terrific thinking, and THANK you for my lovely gift which arrived a few days ago. I have yet to photograph/blog about it.

Just wanted to let you know I check in on you from time to time. And when I do I realize I need to get my butt in gear and craft it up!

I don't need to woo teachers yet, but the luggage tag caught my eye.

Did Leigh tell you we busted out the sewing machine this summer at her mom's house? She made pants and I did curtains and tie backs. Fun times.

Holler next time you're in the city.
