My Not So Crafty Teacher Gift

Tuesday, May 7, 2013
I think I have made it perfectly clear that I am NOT crafty, and in all honesty, it's not one of my goals. :)

Now that National Teacher Appreciation Week has rolled around, my little craft insecurity comes out in full force! I mean, have you seen all the cute ideas on Pinterest!?! Ugh! 

So what is a mom (who truly appreciates everything her son's teachers do every single day) supposed to do? Oh I know! I asked my kid. Here is a snippet of our conversation:

Me "T, what do you want to get your teachers as a thank you present?"
T "gum. They really like gum a lot."
Me "Really? Again, you want to get them gum, AGAIN?" 
T "Mommy, they really like it."
Me "Ok, what else do they like?"
T "chicken"
Me "Your teachers like chicken? Have you ever seen them eat chicken?"
T "oh yeah."

Rather than running out to Chick-fil-a, KFC, Zaxby's, or grabbing a couple of rotisserries, I went with my teacher instinct and here is what we did!
cute, white box from Target's Dollar Spot, decorated with love (and Sharpies!)
more gum than any 3 women need, along with Target gift cards, handpicked by T!
My favorite part-pictures of his teachers. 
I know they will love it. Why? I'm pretty sure they love my kid! I do so appreciate T's teachers and A's teacher, too. These educators are teaching my two favorite children in the universe! I know what they go through-I mean, parents like P and I are no piece of cake! HA! (not to mention that lack of craftiness on my part!)

On this teacher appreciation week, and every other day too, from one teacher to another, THANK YOU!

  1. What a thoughtful and wonderful gift. The personal decorations and the sentiment shine. I am glad you wrote about it because it put a smile on my teacher face( especially the conversation with T. :) and the portraits!)


Thank you for your comments. Words matter. :)
