The pressure to be a “Pinterest Mom” is so real. Everything is cutesy these days. From back to school signs to birthday parties, everything is over-the-top cute. Gone are the days of basic, thanks to Pinterest. These “easy” step-by-step photos make it look simple yet whenever I attempt a Pinterest project, it ends up in more of the “Pinterst fail” category. Nonetheless, I still give in to the pressure and attempt to send some Pinterest worthy teacher gifts at the end of the school year. This year I was determined to keep it simple yet cute. I feel like I really succeeded with cute but not over-the-top gifts. Since I succeeded, I felt like I could help out some fellow wanna-be Pinterest mommas. So, here ya go, easy peasy teacher gifts.
With QMonster being in SPED, we have A LOT of teachers, aides, therapists, etc. so while I want to give them the world (that they so rightly deserve), my budget doesn’t allow for me to buy 11+ worlds. Therefore, I have to keep it simple and affordable. This year for his teachers I went with cute stationery sets accompied with a Target gift card and for his aides/support staff, I went with Chick-Fil-A gift cards. I grabbed the CFA cards from Walgreens while I was in there picking something else up and I printed the Target GCs online!
For the Stationery sets, I used Canva to design the tags then I printed the tags on sticker paper I had left over from another project & stuck them to the front of plain gift bags. If you don’t have sticker paper, just print and tie to the bags with curling ribbon! For the stationery sets, I grabbed some flair pen sets from Amazon, personalized note pads from Jane, and Target gift cards. If you’re last minute, don’t worry about the notepads being personalized, grab some fun post-it notes instead! Assemble, throw a sheet of tissue paper in there, and voila! You’re done!
If you don’t find designing graphics to be fun, I have done you a solid and you can download my tags below. They’re free to download! Just print & sign your name!
