Teacher appreciation gift

Teacher Appreciation – End of Year gift for a male teacher……who knew it would stretch my brain.  Jules has had female teachers in the past and all of my Go-To gift ideas are all geared towards girls…..so I had to get creative.  Our Christmas gift to Mr B was very light on imagination, so I was determined to do it right since Jules had a blast in Mr B’s classroom this year.

When you google male teacher appreciation gift, you get a lot of ideas…..but none of them quite what I was looking for.  In my search I came across a printed picture of a tree with printed fingerprints as the leaves and the teachers name at the bottom.  Soooooo riffing off of that I merged that idea with a family tree.

IMG_0094Kinda girlie but still better than some of my other ideas.  I did something creative and by throwing in some guy stuff like a gift card to iTunes, Amazon, anything BBQ related……Mr B gets something useful and I get to use some creativity.  Win, Win!!
