Teacher Gift Set

I absolutely adore each and every teacher that my girls had this year. Throughout the year I would make them card sets or cute little boxes with goodies in them. So for the end of the year I had no clue what to get them. I thought maybe just a gift card. But as a crafter, you know you can't do just that and be okay with it. Right? ;)

So I thought for a while and decided to do a theme. "Summertime!" I bought an iced tea pitcher, some tea bags, some Kool Aid, glasses, chip bowl and dip bowl and dip mix. I then made coasters to match the hibiscus flower on the pitchers. I also used a stamp with the God's Blessing poem on it. Then I made a tag with how to Steep Iced Tea in the Sun and attached it to the pitcher.

I have four teachers to make these for. I finished the first one yesterday and this morning I have two more to finish. I migh post them later if time permits.

I sure hope the teachers like the idea of this gift set. I want them to be able to sit down and relax a bit during their summer hiatus.

Speaking of summer, I can't believe it's almost here already!! Where did the time go??


  1. this is super cute!! i think it's a great gift set! i wish i liked quinn's teachers enough to do this, but i don't...LOL
