Teacher Gifts - Part 1

We've been so blessed with wonderful teachers for both of our girls.  It's always difficult to come up with a gift to show our deep appreciation for all they do each year but we try.

This is one of my go-to end of year teacher gifts.  It starts with a spunky beverage dispenser (this one is from Target) and some refreshing drink mixes.

Stuff some yellow tissue paper in the bottom of the jar.

Then add in a container of lemonade mix (we used Country Time).

Then some cold brewed iced tea bags.

We also added some sugar free pink lemonade.
                                                           Some regular tea bags too.

Layered in some more cold brewed tea bags.

and some Crystal Light individual packs.
Put some more yellow tissue paper in the top.

and put the lid back on.
She then added a tissue paper flower and a hand writte thank you note for her teacher.

Do you have any great teacher gift ideas to share?  I'd love to hear them.

This is a cute idea! As far as my picks for teacher gifts... I love hand-written notes from kids and parents, kid art, flowers, and gift cards are always much appreciated - especially if they are for the spa! :)
