Where Would We Be Without Teachers?

I'm part of Post A Day 2016

In celebration of Teacher Appreciation Week, I wanted to share a quick and easy teacher gift idea with you today!

My sister is a 1st grade teacher and because of this, I have a BIG RESPECT for all teachers! Too often, their hard work goes un-noticed!

I always enjoy coming up with a creative gift to thank my kids’ teachers. However, this Teacher Appreciation Week, time was an issue so I had to  settle for simple gift cards instead. I still wanted to make it special so I decided on making a fun gift card holder to go with the gift cards.

I found these adorable little buckets and shredded paper in the party section of the store. I love how the grocery bag looking filler paired with the bucket gave it a kind of “rustic” look.

I used a chalk board paint pen to write “Thanks” on the little chalk board tags and tied them to the gift cards with a little piece of twine that I wrapped around the card a few times. I also added a little personal note.


To finish it off, I popped a little artificial flower in the bucket. I think that gave it just the finishing touch I was looking for!

  • Simple
  • Easy
  • Thoughtful

  1. So, I am making mason jars with m&ms with fun prescription labels on them. Pinterest find. I am adding the cute tag too if I can find them. Thanks for the idea.
