Teacher Christmas Care Package from Positively Splendid
While browsing through my Google Reader the other day I stumbled across a simply adorable gift idea for my sons teacher. The post was featured as part of the Positively Splendid "Swell Noel" series and was a guest post by Michelle from A Little Tipsy. Both are A-MAY-ZING blogs and I encourage you to check them out (after you are done checking mine out, of course!). Anywho, I had been struggling to find the perfect gift for my sons Kindergarten teacher for the past month and this post couldn't have come at a better time. What better gift to give to a teacher who is constantly exposed to snot nosed children then a care package full of health related and actually useful items. The best part? The whole gift, supplies included, cost me under 15$. SCORE!
Before I show you the finished product I am going to give you a quick run through of what I included in it and how I spruced it up! Oh, and you can check out the original and my inspiration for this fabulous idea go HERE!
Next I grabbed some supplies so I could decorate my gift basket. These were also from the dollar store and cost about five bucks. I got a Chistmas-y gift basket, red curling ribbon, some gift tags, silver basket filler, and some snowflake print cellophane gift wrap. Actually I splurged a bit on the gift tags, they were about 5$ for eight at Shoppers because all the other ones I saw were really little-kidish.
Finally, I put it all together and voila! Here is the end result which I like to think is just as pretty as the orginal from Positively Splendid.The finishing touch is the message on the tags. On the box of Kleenex it say "We 'Tissue' a Merry Christmas," and on the basket it says "And a healthy New Year!" Genius!!
I can't wait to give it to Coder's teacher! I hope she will find it as adorable as I do:) So what is everyone else giving their child's teacher for Christmas?
