Teacher Christmas Gift-Wood Theme
I actually thought ahead this year and did a little preparing early for Sydney’s teachers Christmas gifts so I wasn’t scrambling at the last minute. Around the start of the school year the dollar bin at Target had some great wood grain and apple themed items. I picked up some little notebooks and tags as well as a little burlap pencil pouch. The thought stopped there and I wasn’t quite sure what I was doing with all of this. Then recently, I ran across two more items that really completed the idea and made for a super cute Teacher’s gift!
The first item were some branch colored pencils that I found at Homegoods. They have a cool story behind them too which I like too. They are made from sustainable Tamarind Trees. Tamarind Trees are farmed for their fruit and when trimmed, the branches are used to make branch pencils. Pretty cool huh? I did a search for them online and they are a little hard to find but I saw quite a few on ETSY. Keep your eye out for them at discount stores…they are less expensive there than online.
My next great find was a free printable from the Elinee Journal. Their Holiday Petal Cards were perfect holders for the small Target gift cards I also included with the gifts. There are two version mine has a sweater background and the other has a tree grain print. Wrapped the whole thing with a bow and my kid has her teacher presents to hand out when she goes to school today.
