Sharp Sharpie Teacher Gift

“This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Sharpie, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia  #StaplesBTS” My kids like to give their teachers the coolest products they can think of on the first day of school. I like to think of it less as […]

Hot Cocoa and Popcorn Teacher Gifts with Printable

Sometimes the best gifts are simple things that you know the recipient will use and enjoy! The trick is in the packaging and presentation. People love the Valentine’s Snack Basket I made for my husband. Here are some ideas for easy gifts for teachers or neighbors comprised of snacks you know they will use and […]

An Apple Soda for the Teacher Back to School Gift

My kids went back to school last week. I know that sounds crazy to those of you who don’t start until after Labor Day and it feels a little crazy to me. Our summers are short–less than two months–so we spend the 1st half recovering from the previous school year and the 2nd half gearing […]

I couldn’t have Picked a better Teacher Appreciation Gift

Another quick teacher appreciation idea. Although, I didn’t use these for teachers at all. I teach Let’s Play Music and we just had our recital for the graduates of the program last week. The Let’s Play Music program requires a lot of parent participation and I wanted to recognize the parents and help the kids tell them […]

An Apple for the Teacher

A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to guest post at the amazing blog, Tatertots and Jello. I shared this simple idea for a gift for your children to give their new teachers. I thought I should share it again here, just in case you still have a 1st day of school coming up! […]

Stay Cool! — Summer Gift Idea

I live in Phoenix!  It’s HOT!  I know people say it is a “dry heat”, but with temperatures in the 110’s, humidity in the 30+% range, and the monsoon rains skirting around the valley, it is pretty much miserable right now. Last week I had two friends moving on Saturday in this heat.  I wasn’t […]
