Remember that fun holiday party I threw with Tiny Prints last year? It seems like it was just last week. Now it’s Christmas again, and I’m excited to team up with Tiny Prints again this holiday season. They sent me a bunch of goodies to jump-start my holiday gifting.* And that is huge, because I live for the thrill of the last-minute. Or I’m lazy. You choose.We’ve got so many teachers in our lives; and I like to get their gifts done early. Not because I’m organized, but because I’ve learned the hard way: it’s the last day of school, and I’m scrambling to the store in my PJs for gift cards. It feels unthoughtful and haphazard. And every year I vow to do something more special for our teachers. Thanks to my friends at Tiny Prints, I’ve got our teacher gifts under control and ready to go. (I wish I could say the same for the rest of my Christmas checklist!)
I chose a personalized stationery set for each of my kids’ teachers. There are so many color options and styles to choose from, it was easy to find the right one for each teacher. Side note: I believe there’s a special place in heaven for kindergarten teachers. This set is my very favorite because I love the colors and the patterns.
Teachers make such a difference between having a great year and a rough one. We’ve really lucked out this year. I want our teachers to know how much we appreciate them. I think getting a customized gift shows your teacher you were actually thinking about her. Plus, having a cute notepad like this will probably make all those “Johnny forgot his homework” notes easier for her to send home.
Don’t forget the office staff. You know, the one you call every time you have a question, who reminds you your son’s lunch balance is negative. The one who delivers your daughter’s forgotten backpack at least once a week; or takes care of your son when he skins his knee at recess. Make sure they know they’re appreciated. The office staff are constantly jotting down notes and sending messages…so a stationery gift set is perfect for them, too.
If your family is anything like mine, there’s a whole host of teachers that come into play after school is over. I used to be a dance teacher; and I never expected to receive a Christmas gift from a student, but when I did it really made my day. Dance teachers, gymnastic coaches, piano teachers and swim teachers (along with so many others) all really love and invest so much time and effort into our kids…so the holidays are a perfect time to show them how much they mean to us. This note set is perfect for my daughter’s dance teacher.
Every time I work with Tiny Prints, I’m impressed with the quality of their product and the speed of their work. I’m sure most of you are more prepared with your holiday game plan than I am; but they always make me look like I’ve got my act together, even when that’s the farthest thing from the truth.
Take a look at their gorgeous personalized wrapping paper. This style is my very favorite; but they have a bunch of other cute styles. Personalized gift wrap makes gift tags or cards unnecessary. A lazy-wrapper’s dream come true. Also: the paper is so thick and opaque there’s absolutely no risk of seeing the gift through the paper. I hate it when that happens.
A huge thanks to Tiny Prints for making my teacher gifts so effortless and beautiful this year.
