Hello and happy Friday to you! This week has been a crazy one. Sydney is sick with a stomach bug AND ear infection, which has meant two days off from daycare and lots of baby shuffling! I'm just glad it's [finally] the weekend!
I have a very specific criteria when it comes to getting teacher gifts: It Has to Be Useful.
I'm sure Mrs. So-and-So has enough crayon monograms and cute Christmas mugs to last a lifetime, so I like to make sure that what I'm getting is disposable so she can use it and toss it!
Soap always comes in handy (especially yummy smelling Mrs. Meyers Basil). And I love anything in the fragrance family - including my new obsession: plug-in Wallflowers from Bath & Body Works (okay okay, she can't really throw the plug-in away, but who would want to?!). They make your whole house smell lovely (we have 4, but who's counting?) and I just love walking in from the garage and smelling whatever scent is plugged in instead of whatever we had for dinner last night. For some reason, my house hangs on to smells for a long time, so anything that can remedy that problem is a win in my book! Wallflowers aren't the cheapest thing in the world, but with a coupon and some BBW promotions, I got this entire gift for $10. Not too shabby.
I rounded up a few more useful gift ideas for any teachers/neighbors/friends that you need to buy for this season!
EOS lip balm + cute printable = adorable
A teacher can never have too much hand sanitizer, amiright?
Anything felt is guaranteed to be adorable. This apple-shaped gift card ornament (talk about triple duty!) fits the bill to a tee.
Just looking at this gift makes me want to go out and get some Peppermint Foot Lotion. I'm sure any teacher would love to get a gift to pamper herself over the holidays!
Sweet treats are always a hit. After reading about these mini donuts, I'm convinced I need a mini donut maker. Did you hear that, Santa?
This is just a store bought candle (from Bath & Body Works, where else?) tied up in the trendy deco mesh ribbon, accented with ornaments. What a beautiful package!
Have a great weekend, friends!
