gift ideas
With the holidays fast approaching, I'm starting to plan gifting ideas. With Matthew now in school, finding a gift for a teacher can be challenging. What do they like? What do they need? I'm trying to stay away for the typical gift baskets of soaps or chocolate.  I've highlighted some of my favorite items any teacher would love to receive, that's different, thoughtful and simply just the cutest items ever!

1// Gift cards are my favorite. it allows you to stay in budget while the receiver gets to do the shopping and pick whatever they like. 

2// Teachers plan all the time. Whether it is for their class, a school outing or new ideas they come up with, planners/journals are a great item to get them. I never met a teacher who didn't love or have tons of journals. 

3//  I'm a sucker for monogrammed items. I have a few of my own that I love because it's thoughtful and shows you went out of your way to find something just for them.

4// A colorful scarf to reflect the teacher's personality. It's a versatile clothing accessory that comes in so many colors. 

5// Candles in warm scents make me want to cuddle up on the couch with a cup of coffee and simply enjoy the aroma and relax. One can never have too many candles. 

So, get your favorite teacher something different, something special. Whether its a little flair on their desk, helping them stay on track with their busy day or maybe even something they can enjoy while relaxing at home, it's always nice to show your appreciation and make their day.
