Teacher Gifts

It's not the last day of school yet, but our teacher gifts are all set (mostly because I'm a reserve juror the next couple days, so I'm not sure what our week is going to look like).  We wanted to do a bookstore gift certificate for Jack's teacher, but wanted to make it just a little cuter than an envelope.  I asked Jack about the reusable cup idea (it can be frozen too) and said I would add some candy or something to go inside.  Olivia and I went shopping at Target and I asked her what color nail polish I should get.  Her response was, "Green, of course.  Everything should be green."  Now that is a girl after my own heart.  Of course we should make all the silly things inside match the cup...so we did.

We went in on a class gift for EJ's teachers, but wanted to do a little something extra.  So we went back to an old idea but EJ added a note and drawing to the back of the Stay Cool cards.  Both teachers are parents, so I think these summer treats will come in handy.

Each of Olivia's teachers (she has 5, so I like to do the same thing for each) was gifted one of these gorgeous necklaces from Green {D} Designs.  Karri made each necklace in a different color and used scrabble tiles matching each teacher's first initial (the letters show on the back of the necklace).  I loved that each was similar, but special and personal.  And the teachers just loved them.

And with that, we are ready for summer...two days left!
