Simple Gift Idea #1

8 Dec

Tis the season for family gifts…friend gifts…and teacher gifts.

I love giving to my children’s teachers.  Teachers have the hardest job…besides motherhood…and I always wish I could give alot more.

Besides our homeroom teacher, my daugher has several ‘specials’ teachers…like art and music, the librarian and coaches, teacher aides and the sweetest office secretary.

And now that my son is in preschool, I added those precious teachers to the list this year too.

As the list grew, the $$ amount got smaller and smaller…and so we decided what we could give and hated to leave anyone out.

And then I discovered these adorable cards on an amazing blog, Brooklyn Limestone.  How I found this blog…I’ll never know because I get lost in click-click-clicking my way around the web.

Brooklyn Limestone is one of my new favorite reads…and now I have some adorable ‘little somethings’ for our special teachers and helpers.

Incredibly easy to print and make…and my little Sweet P absolutely LOVED the idea…because you know I had to get her approval on the project.

I printed the cards on white cardstock from Target.  A pack of 48 sheets for $5:

peppermint tea teacher gift printable tags

Fold on the dotted lines…

Bought Candy Cane Lane decaf Green Tea…smells just like a Peppermint Patty…

celestial seasonings candy cane lane tea christmas tea

Stapled 2 tea bags inside…

Teacher name on the outside…and Sweet P wrote a precious ‘thank you’ inside…

Fold…and tie up with a pretty bow.

These cards make me happy…they smell amazing.

Visit Brooklyn Limestone here…tell her Angie & Carrie said HI…and download the cards here.

It shouldn’t cost alot to put a smile in someone’s heart this season…because it’s the thought that means the most.

Happy Gift Giving, friends!

    Carrie, this is GREAT! Blogland has been a mess with expensive decor and even more expensive gift guides (no i will not buy twenty five dollar nail polish and a three hundred dollar etsy painting… ever. sheesh!)

    This is so thoughtful, so pretty, and that tea is delicious (I know for a fact!) so it is also oh-so-yummy!


    PS: you tie a mean bow =) my husband ties all my bows. I’m a art school dropout. womp womp!

      Hey Jenn! i am all about thoughtful gifts this year! As much as i would love to give Esty creations to everyone on list, it ‘ain’t happening!’. :) and I think it teaches an important lesson to my daughter about the true meaning of Christmas. As far as the bow goes…I am a bit of a bow-snob! :)

    Gift shops are slowly fading away from the towns and cities because of the economic down turn and are migrating online because there is a far steadier influx of customers using this plain to get the gifts and presents they want for their needs. Though large trusted stores can offer some great deals thanks to mass production and hierarchy on the market, the shops online can give even greater give-aways as they are trying to pull in more consumers so do big deals to entice people to shop with them and for word of mouth about their bargains to filter out to the public. …
