My best friend, Stacey, posted this on her Facebook account yesterday. Stacey is way more creative than I am. I proudly admit that. She also lives in a very family oriented neighborhood in San Clemente, Ca. I responded with this, “I think you are becoming one of those Talega Stepford Moms….you drank the Kool Aid, didn’t you?” She thought I was hilarious, as usual.
Stacey told me that her daughter’s preschool always asks for a donation of money, also known as CASH, for the teacher’s gifts. She openly admits that it would be easier to give the cash to the mom in charge. But, Stacey, slacker like me, forgot to turn in her money. So she came up with a great little gift for the teachers, and she made it look adorable too!
I asked her for a picture, so that I could post about it. I think this is a great idea for anyone looking for a last minute teacher gift, a hostess gift, or even for a friend or family member.
Stacey used the following items:
Large box of candy
Movie ticket coupons
Filler fluff aka gold grass stuff
I will try and post more ideas as I get them. I’m totally shopping last minute right now. Thankfully, a lot of stores have their deadlines posted online. I have many many many gifts to finalize still. At least I got my cards out, right?
