Teacher Appreciation Gifts

My babies are now on their Summer break and I am so happy :D  Like most young children, they are hard work and exhausting to keep entertained but they are also great company and they make me laugh and smile like no-one and nothing else!!

Here are the contents of the small goodie bags I put together for the teachers this year, I am in particular going to miss Owen's teacher who is emigrating to Australia.  At our last meeting he told us that he is particularly fond of Owen because he reminds him of his own son *sniff* :')


Sweeties, notebooks and tags...


Large chocolate bars...


Thank you card...


Note card and tag set contained in matching box...


Close up of the note card...


Giftcard holders (outside and inside view)...


All wrapped up...

Supplies: Stamps - Clearly Besotted 'Best Teacher', 'An Apple A Day', 'Diagonal Stripes', 'Sentimental Type', 'Let's Roll', 'Bookworm' & 'Bookworm Additions' / Tools - Clearly Besotted 'Best Teacher Die', 'Apple Die', 'Bookworm Die Collection', 'Let's Roll Die Collection', 'Mini Basic Banners Die' & 'Rounded Tag Die'; Spellbinder Nestabilities 'Standard Circles'

Happy Friday everyone and I hope you have a wonderful weekend!! :D xoxo

Edit: Carola - the little bow tie is from another set (let's Roll) - so sorry! x

Hi Stephanie

Too bad I'm not one of the teachers of your children *lol*. Your gifts are just great and you really used just the perfects stamps for the occasion. That bookworm is so cute, I just love it. I recently made two bookmarks using the bookworm, but unfortunately mine doesn't wear such a cute tie.

Is that tie a stamp of one of your sets? It is just perfect for the bookworm!

And I see Swiss chocolate, I think with that you can never go wrong *lol*.

Have a nice week-end and enjoy the summer break with your family!

Kind regards
Carola

Gorgeous Stephanie-I am sure the lucky teachers were thrilled to receive such beautifully presented packages!
Enjoy your summer and your company :)
When my daughter was school aged I too enjoyed her company during the holidays,she was a very wanted and longed for child,and it always made me so sad to hear some of the parents outside the school gates saying they would count off the days until September when the children returned to school:(
Have fun!

Awww how lovely, I too love to have my girls home....you can't beat it!! I love having no schedule for a while and doing what we like, lazy Summer days! Are you off on holiday anywhere this year? Your gifts are amazing! :D xx

Vicki Dutcher said...

I bet the teachers fight over having your kids in their class LOL - great gifts for the teachers

Carola said...

Thanks, Stephanie, for your information regarding the little bow tie. I've found a similar bow tie on a stamp set that I have and I think my next book worm will also wear a bow tie, that makes it look so handsome *lol*.

These are so yummy! Lucky teachers :) Both my sisters are teachers and they never receive such wonderful things! I'm losing my little girl to school at the start of September and I know although she drives me nuts, I'll miss her company. Xx

What lovely gifts, the teacher will be thrilled. BEAUTIFULLY done! Sorry about your favorite teacher emigrating though! At east Owen has had the benefit of some of his teaching :-)

Have a wonderful summer with your family!

Fabulous way to express gratitude to those dedicated teachers in whom we entrust the education of our children. You deserve a congrats as well, as it is a joint effort between parents and teachers to lead those little minds and hearts into a healthy and happy living. Cheers!

Stephanie, what a stunning array of gifts you've made for your children's teachers! From practical, to 'tasty', to beautiful, you've covered the spectrum in expressing your gratitude! As a teacher myself, I know these gifts will be welcomed, appreciated and loved! WOW! My niece is starting kindergarten in September (she's growing up way, way, way tooo fast) and I think that perhaps 'Aunty C' should order some of these products you've showcased so she and I can make teacher/classmate treats through the course of the year! What do you think? *grin* Off for another look (the fifth so far...) to gaze, admire and, of course, make a list! Enjoy time with your children immensely!
Hugs~c

Loved seeing what you made this year for the teachers :) They're so lucky to receive such wonderful creations. Enjoy your summer break with your two, I'm sure you'll be making the most of the lovely weather.

Aloha Stephanie!
I came across your incredible website and blog from following Debby Hughes. Absolutely and definitely will be purchasing some of your stamp sets as well as dies! I especially adore the stamp sets which I can use for giving gifts to my daughter's teachers. Love them!

I also love the gifts you had put together for your kids teachers and wanted to find out, for the matching box for the notecard and tag set - was that box purchased or did you create it yourself? Would it be possible to share instructions on creating that box, if you had done it yourself?

Thank you so much for your time and looking forward to playing with your stamp set and dies!

Aloha, Joan
