Teacher Gift Giving Guide {The Art of Frugal Living}

With the end of school, right around the corner
I wanted to offer you a bit of gift inspiration for the special Teacher in your life.

I was a Special Education, Elementary School teacher before becoming a Mama and I give my stamp of approval on these ideas.

If you haven't read the book The 5 Love Languages, by Gary Chapman, I STRONGLY encourage you to do so!

I will help you forever know the perfect gift for your loved one, including the Teacher{s} in your life!

Basically, the premise of the book is that we feel love mostly by one {oftentimes by a few of the 
following categories}

Receiving Gifts
Acts of Service
Words of Affirmation
Physical Touch
Quality Time
Once you know how your loved one feels love you want to select a gift that fills their love tanks.

My love language is Receiving Gifts and it has taken me years to realize that just because I feel love this way, it doesn't mean everyone else does too.
I just LOVE to give gifts {and to get them of course too}!

 I used the treasure chest of goodies I have {and you do too at}
to select the following gifts from.

Jewel Kade "Teacher" Word Stick. Reads, "Takes a hand, opens a mind, and touches a heart." {$28}
with a "Small Ball Chain" {$5}

Teachers are the Queens of their classroom and these Crown earrings {$18} are perfect!

"BEE" charm {$36} with "Small Ball" Chain {$5} HERE
Hand stamped charms with your School's initials,  Teacher's initials, or your child's initial {$10 each} with "Small Ball" Chain {$5}
Jewel Kade items are made by hand for YOU so allow time for crafting and shipping and order NOW! 

Presentation is EVERYTHING!

Consider packaging your gift in these darling cans so it looks EXTRA charming!
