This week is teacher appreciation week. Parents at my oldest son's preschool have organized something for each day. Today we brought in food for the teachers. I made homemade tortilla chips and guacamole. Tomorrow, everyone is supposed to bring in a small gift that the teachers will enjoy over summer vacation. I completely forgot to pick something up today and started trying to think how we could manage to stop in the morning and still get to school on time. Then I realized that I could probably come up with something suitable that we already had. I found some coffee samples (we don't drink coffee) and individually wrapped specialty tea bags. I decided this could work. What says relaxing summer vacation more than coffee and tea? Maybe alcohol - but we won't go there.
Now that I had gifts for my son's three amazing teachers, I had to make them look pretty. I rummaged through my sewing tub and found some scrap fabric and ribbon.
I trimmed the edges of the fabric with pinking shears, then tied the fabric up around each gift to create these simple little bundles. I think this is the perfect teacher gift and it is frugal because I did not have to buy anything.
