teacher gifts.

Just in case you have a favorite teacher in your life... a special neighbor or friend... someone you are wanting to thank... but without spending too much money... or doing too much work... 

Some quick and easy teacher gifts I have given... 

These were Thanksgiving gifts for the kids' Sunday School teachers. (Hoping to eliminate some of the Christmas stress by giving a gift a little early.) Pretty fancy containers, huh? I made Julie's super easy toffee. (Click on the word toffee for the recipe)

More toffee, in an empty formula container...






For the teacher who didn't like chocolate...

Hot chocolate mix... 



I couldn't find a picture, but earlier this year, I gave each teacher a can/bottle of their favorite soda, with a cute ribbon/tag tied around it. Super simple, but appreciated. I had a kiddo give me a 2 liter of Diet Dr. Pepper one year! I loved it! 

I found a super cute idea for this year, but I can't post pictures yet. #1... it's not done.  #2... Sophie's teacher reads this. I need to give it to her before she sees it here!
