Today is the last day of school for Miss Priss and nearing the end for Little Man.  Last week was Teacher Appreciation week at their schools.  I featured a pin on my Weekly PINspirations last week, of a teacher appreciation gift that I loved.  I loved it so much, I decided to make that my PINspiration Reveal of the week.

As I said last week, it takes a special person to be a teacher and I respect them with all my heart!  There is no way I would ever be able to have this profession.  I lack patience...with everyone...much less 26 screaming children on the daily.  Ha!  So if you are a teacher...THANK YOU!

I loved the idea of giving our teachers a towel, magazine and some other goodies for their summer vacation.  Who doesn't need another beach towel?  I know I get a new one every year...I am a little obsessed!

In my Summer Survival Teacher Appreciation Gift:
  • An inexpensive colorful beach towel
  • All You Magazine (this is a win win with it's great stories as well as coupons)
  • Travel sunscreen
  • Chapsick
  • Sweet Frog gift card
  • Thank You note

I ended up rolling the towels as they were in the PINspiration and placing them on top of the magazine.  I then tied the smaller items of sunscreen and chapstick together with twine so that they would not get lost in transition.  I then slid the gift card in the mix and tied it all up with my favorite gift bow making material...rafetta!

For Miss Priss' teachers I wrote a personal thank you note in a colorful card and slid it into the gift as she is only three and can't write yet.  Little Man is six and is able to write his own thank you note, so we did his gift a little different!

For Little Man's teacher (who teaches 26 children alone everyday) we made her gift a bit more elaborate!  I think she deserved it, don't you?  I purchased a bag in the One Spot of Target to pack all of her things in. This can also double as a beach tote for her.  Other than the tote, she received the same gift items as listed above.

I wrote a personal thank you note to her on the colorful card and had Little Man write his teacher a thank you note of his own.  He was sure to tell her his favorite part of her class this year which was Science!

We delivered their gifts at school the next morning and they loved them!  I was so happy that I found the PINspiration and was able to make it my own to show our teachers how much we love them!
Do you have a favorite Teacher Appreciation Gift?  Are there any teachers out there that would love to receive this gift?
