This year I had originally planned to give gift cards. (Let's face it, we all love gift cards!) But, when I thought about handing each of them a $10 Starbucks gift card, I just thought it sounded kinda lame. So, I decided to come up with something that cost the same but took just a little more effort than a run to Staples for the gift cards. Here's what we decided to do...
I found the mug for $5 at Homegoods and the Salted Caramel Chai Tea Latte Mix from Trader Joe's was only $3.99 (and it's AMAZINGLY delicious!). I know teachers have plenty of mugs, but at least this one is pretty and doesn't scream "I'm a teacher!".
Here it is all wrapped up with a pun-tastic tag attached. I downloaded the "Merry Christmas" text and banner clip-art for free, combined them in Powerpoint/Keynote, added the "Thanks a LATTE for all you do!", printed it, cut it out, and attached it to a cute gingham bow on the wrapped gift.
No, I didn't come up with the "Thanks a LATTE" line. I found that online too! It was so fitting for this gift idea and the 4 wonderful teachers that they're going to.
Anyone else have any good last minute teacher gift ideas? Do share with us, please!!
