Year End Teacher Gifts

So for this year's end of the year teacher gifts we took some simple but practical and useful plastic cups with straws perfect for summer and dressed them up just a little bit. 

I wanted to get the teal cups - Noah wanted to get orange and since they were for Noah's teachers, as you can see, he won. We were telling my Mom about it and she had the suggestion for the tag which Noah found hilarious so we went with it. 

I threw together a quick tag and cut it out with my large circle punch, punched a small hole in it, and tied it on the straw with white curling ribbon. Then Noah added 4 individual packs of lemonade mix to each cup and they  were finished! 

Cute + Play on words + Inexpensive + Simple = Perfect Year End Gift for Fabulous Teachers! 

PS. If you'd like the tag (you aren't limited to teacher gifts with it since it doesn't actually mention teachers) just click the image below and then right click and save it to your computer.

Going on a family vacation with my in-laws next month...each family has taken turns through the years of doing the planning; this year is our turn. I've been looking for the perfect gift idea...I'm going to create welcome bags with 'orange' food items to give to each family member as they arrive. Thanks for the super cute idea!

Great idea, I'm making little treat bags for all my daughters classmates. She was diagnosed with Type I diabetes this school year and all of her friends have been so good to her that I wanted to do something special. Super cute!

Great Idea. I used your idea and Printable so Thank You for sharing your idea and Printable. I used a pack of Trident Gum, 100 calorie Cheeze It Pack and 1 Reese. I was able to make 7 gifts for about 10.00.
