I always try to do something cute for the kids’ teachers’ gifts at Christmas and end of the year. This year I had so much going on I almost opted for the easy way out with gift cards, but decided to give Pinterest a try.
I saw an idea to give soap with a hand cut out of paper taped to the gift. On it was written, “Hands down, you are appreciated.” (Of course I can’t find the pin now…Sorry!)
Cute, but I needed to make it cuter.
Because I was planning to gift Bath and Body Works scented soaps, I wanted to add the word “scent”-sational.
This is what I came up with:
I purchased all beach scents to tie in with summer (and got a great deal on them!). Next I picked coordinating paper, tissue, and ribbon to go with the “theme” of the soap. The purple/blue combo went with the Ocean Pearl scent. I used some clear bags I had left from another project and tied everything up.
The teachers have loved them. It’s a cute gift with a crafty touch, but not time consuming. Exactly what I was looking for!
What did you gift your kids’ teachers this year?
