Well, it’s that time of year again. Ya know that song by Alice Cooper, “School’s Out for Summer?” It’s starting to play over and over again in my head! I love that we will be going on a fun family vacation, spending a ton of time in the pool, having parties, and late nights hanging with family and friends. However, I have to get through these last 19 days of school, so my daughter and I came up with these beautiful monogrammed teacher gifts for her teachers.
I bought some plain tumbler cups. They were bit hard to find, but I did find some at Walmart for just under $10. I made for of these monogrammed teacher gifts for the teachers and extra people at school that my daughter interacts with on a daily basis. I just love her teachers this year, so I don’t mind spending a little extra on their gifts. Since, I was making 4 it made it easy to buy a large pack of something and split it among the tumblers.
In each tumbler there were:
- 3 ink pens
- sticky note pad
- iced coffee packet
- 2 Crystal Light packets
- sunscreen chapstick
- and a Starbuck’s Gift Card (The main teacher got a bit more on her card.)
For the monogrammed initial, I used my Silhouette cutter and vinyl to print out script initials for each teacher. I already had the matching colors in my craft bin, but I think using white or black would have worked nicely too. Also, just using script letter stickers would work too, just try to find some that are large enough to fill a decent part of cup. I cut mine about 2 1/2 inches high.
No matter what the cups directions are, once the vinyl/stickers are attached, it’s best to hand wash these babies! And don’t forget to have you kid write a note to their teacher and attach to the cups.
Check out my other teacher gift ideas! I love showing our appreciation with a thoughtful gift. Get your children involved…there is no reason they can’t help pick out the goodies and help assemble everything!
