Teacher's Gifts: Mistle Toes


Thursday, December 22, 2016

Sutton and Avery have recently been moved into the toddlers room at daycare. This transition came late because their teacher didn't want to give them up just yet and there was a lag of when new babies were going to start. So the girls spent part time in the toddler room and part time in the baby room. They mostly just napped and ate in the baby room, but did everything else in the toddler room.

When it came time to think of Teacher's gifts, I scoured Pinterest for the perfect idea. I showed each of my favorite ideas to Rory and he didn't like any of them. He wanted me to make (get a free printable) a cute card to go with a gift card like we did for Teacher's week in May. But I wanted to do something different. After searching some more and proposing an altered idea to Rory, he got on board.

We decided to go to Bath and Body Works and buy some of my favorite lotions, pair them with some of their lip balms and order my favorite Butter socks from Nordstrom. Then I found a free printable for the tags and their gifts came together so easily.

There is no rhyme or reason as to who got what sock with what lotion.

Note that I finally found Champagne Toast lotion in my local store. And you better believed I scooped two bottles up for myself.

I had never smelt Magic in the Air or Pink Cashmere, but I was sold on them once I did.

I searched online for a Mistle Toes printable and found the cutest one (here).

I packaged them up in Christmasy bags, added the tags and sent them off to school this morning.

I am super happy with how they came out and I really hope the girls' teachers enjoy them.

  1. I'm in need of some new lotion, so I think a trip to the mall is in order, hopefully soon. I haven't been to Bath & Body Works in ages. I'm sure the teachers will love their gifts!

  6. Oh my gosh, this is so cute! And speaking as someone who got Butter socks from you as a gift, there's no way they won't love them. ;)
