    Valentine Teacher Gift

    I’m so loving what I’ve put together for teacher gifts this year – definitely regretting not buying a set for myself! I’ve linked the items that I included below (all are affiliate links). The standout item in this little collection is the chocolate bar notebook. The feature that makes this so special is that it’s chocolate scented and it smells AMAZING! It also has a flexible cover that is a lot of fun. I made some stickers using my Box of Chocolates Valentine clipart, which are always a fun and easy addition. I use my Cricut’s print and cut feature to do this. A fancy pen is a great gift…

    Printable Christmas Thank You Cards

    Here’s a super helpful resource for this time of year! Printable thank you cards have saved me more times than I can count. While I love stationary, and admittedly have a much larger stash than is necessary, I never seem to have enough thank you cards. These can be printed as needed, making it really easy to get those thank you’s out for any student or co-worker gifts before everyone leaves school for the holidays. You can grab your set HERE!

    Best Gifts for Teachers 2023

    I’ve got one more gift guide for you this week! When it comes to putting these together, the teacher gift guide is always the most challenging. What you choose to give your child’s teacher has a lot to do with your relationship with them – which can mean that there are a ton of different variables at play. I also find it really important to share ideas that don’t look like every other list on the internet (do you know how many teacher gift lists there are that list gift cards, scented candles, and hand soap???? – Too many). Here are the items that the teachers I know would absolutely…

  • Preschool Gift Guide 2023

    Christmas gifts for 3, 4 and 5 year olds 2023

    Gift guide number 3 is here! Preschoolers really have opinions about what they like, and that makes a huge difference when it comes to shopping for holiday gifts. Even if you don’t know what the preschooler that you’re shopping for loves, there are still some gifts that will absolutely hit the mark. Here are my best recommendations for 2023. Just a reminder, all links are affiliates and I’ll receive a portion of the proceeds. Picasso Tiles Marble Run Set – This looks like so much fun! Magnet tiles are always a win, they keep preschoolers busy forever, so adding the marble run component is genius. I can definitely see the…

  • Toddler gift guide

    Christmas gifts for 2 and 3 year olds 2023

    Here’s another holiday gift guide! Toddlers are so fun to buy for because they’re finally understanding how to play with toys. There are so many things that you can introduce them to and they use toys in such creative ways. Here are my favorite recommendations for 2023. Just a reminder, all links are affiliates and I’ll receive a portion of the proceeds. Peanut Shaped Crayons – These are good for so many reasons! They’re designed to be easy for little hands to hold, and the lake of a paper wrapping means that children can use them any way they like. They’re also nice and thick, so they won’t break as…

    Christmas Gifts for Babies 2023

    Halloween is tomorrow, which means it’s the perfect time to start sharing holiday gift guides… I know, it makes no sense, but this is the world we live in! Sharing gift recommendations for the youngest children is one of my favorite things to do. Infants can be so tough to buy for – they don’t NEED anything, and they aren’t old enough to really play with much, or let’s be honest even understand why they’re getting new things on this random day. Buying gifts for babies is truly about the giver and the child’s parents. Here are some infant gifts that are fun to give, and families will be grateful…

  • Halloween gift

    Quick Halloween Teacher Gift

    It’s always been my mission to make sure that my daughter’s teachers know they’re appreciated – because it’s something that teachers don’t hear enough. Sometimes that looks like personal, handmade gifts, and sometimes there just isn’t time for that! Here’s a quick and easy Halloween gift that I I just put together. Who doesn’t love a Halloween movie night? I found a bucket at the Dollar Tree, added some movie theater candy, Halloween Peeps, candy corn, and our family’s famous homemade kettle corn (but any popcorn would work). Then I tied on this cute tag, and decided to share it with you. You can download your own tags here. I…

  • Ribbon scrunchie DIY

    DIY School Spirit Scrunchies

    I was looking for a quick and easy little gift for all of the girls in my life who are enjoying “mini cheerleader season.” You know, where schools raise money by getting all of the elementary school parents to come to high school football games by giving their daughters the opportunity to look cute on the field for five minutes. Every cheerleader needs a scrunchie, so I scooped up some Dollar Tree ribbon in school colors and busted out an old-school craft. Enter the ribbon scrunchie. I made these so many times as a kid – we had scrunchies for every possible holiday and event. It’s only fair that my…

  • Amazon back to school

    Back to school on Amazon

    My all-time-favorite thing about prepping for back to school is shopping for supplies! While no one loves spending that money, having new materials to start fresh with is the absolute best. Here are my Amazon back to school must-haves if you’re looking to add to your own cart (all links are affiliates, I receive a portion of sales from these): I cannot get enough of these zip pouches! I use them for everything from travel to organizing paperwork. In the classroom there are so many potential uses – giving each child one to use as a mailboxes, organizing extra clothes, separating seasonal sensory materials, sending home activities or paperwork that…
