T’is the season to start thinking about gifting. that doesn’t come as a surprise, but as a parent, the thing that always does catch me off-guard is the amount of gifts I need! Between my two kids, we have 6 teachers, 4 coaches, plus the 3 lovely ladies in our aftercare program. That’s an additional 13 gifts I need to consider!  They would all be grateful for a card, but I’m a gift-giver! I just love to show how much people mean to me, and gifting is my love language! I’ve found the solution to the perfect unique and practical teacher gifts – without overspending and still keeping it special and personalized!

I’ve been using Mabel’s Labels since my kids were babies, and I’m a huge fan! Their labels are stuck on my kids’ stuff through everything! Plus, we never lose anything! That’s NOT because my kids are organized, but simply that the teachers and coaches can quickly see who’s left their water bottle behind (my kids!) and easily hand it back to them, skipping the lost & found bin process.

Anyway, back to the perfect teacher gift for the Holidays!

I have been gifting name labels for a few years now, and I always get wonderful compliments! I’ve even had past teachers approach me and ask what the labels I gifted them were because they want more! Success!

Here is what I’ve gifted our teachers in the past and will continue to use because they’re such a hit!
