Luckily, I happen to be a bit of an expert on teacher's gifts. Well, at least I used to be a teacher...which, in my world, makes me an expert. So, on behalf of all the teachers out there, I am here to issue this PSA:
As much as it pains my crafty, DIY heart to say it, teachers don't want crafty, DIY stuff. They want gift cards. Plain and simple. Any denomination, any location, but gift cards are always a sure thing when it comes to teachers.
So I bought the boys' teachers gift cards (to Target, of course). But I just couldn't bring myself to just hand them a gift card. I had to make them look a little pretty. Enter mason jars, some gift tags, and shredded paper.
I also plan to attach a heartfelt note of appreciation and well wishes to Colton's teachers. Levi's are great and all, but I am so, so happy with Colton's school experience this year. I've told them a few times already, but I plan to write it down this time. Honestly, as much as I loved receiving gift cards, I think I may have loved getting the notes of genuine appreciation more. I can still remember each and every one of them.
So that's it. No homemade goodies or anything, but I'm pretty sure they'll be a hit!
