Soooo things have been a little hectic around here lately. We have a couple renovation projects going on and are wrapping up all of our end-of-the-school-year activities…add in Mother’s Day and a few church events, and I’ve pretty much just been a total crazy person. 😀
It wasn’t until the end of last week that I realized I hadn’t put together gifts for Connor’s teachers for the last day of school, so while wracking my brain trying to think of something cute and creative (and probably feeling partially delirious from lack of sleep), I was just like…
Really, that’s exactly what I looked like. 😉 I had seen several adorable pins that would make great gifts, so why not just combine them into one super-duper-mega-Pinterest-inspired gift? Let’s do it, shall we?
Coffee Themed Teacher Appreciation Gift with Free Printable
- cellophane bags
- white mugs
- Hershey’s kisses
- Starbucks gift cards
- printable gift tag (provided below)
Design and Bake
I love the DIY birthday plates floating all over Pinterest where you decorate the plate with a sharpie and bake it to set (like this adorableness). I figured that if it could be done with plates it could surely be done with mugs, too, so I decided to go for it.
I had also come across this little tag line idea while perusing the Pinterest boards and thought it would be perfect. After drawing my design on the mugs, I baked them at 350* for 30 minutes so the sharpie wouldn’t wear off or smear.
Fill and Tag
I filled the mugs with some Hershey’s kisses and tucked in a Starbucks gift card before wrapping them up in cellophane bags and adding my tag.
I’m sure you’ve probably seen the “Thanks a ‘latte'” line in pins like this one before! If you want to make your own “Thanks a ‘latte'” teacher gift, feel free to use the printable below!
