Simple Christmas Gift: Homemade Holiday Inspiration
Christmas gifts for teachers are not always easy to locate, especially when you have loads of teachers to purchase for. I have three children and they all have many teachers. My girls have six teachers each at their academy and my son has eight teachers at his school. My oldest two have catechism teachers and they all have music teachers. Loads of teacher gifts to purchase over here.
So, I love to think of something useful for the teachers instead of something they will toss in a corner, or worse, in the trash bin. This year, I decided to give a Christmas Mason Jar Gift. Mason Jars can be filled will virtually anything, jams, treats, homemade cookies, homemade ingredients . . . whatever you like.
Using mason jars as drinking glasses is something we have done in my house for years (remember I did grow up on a farm); but it is quite catching on right now. A mason gift jar is a fun gift AND it is super easy to put together, and very reasonable in cost. Mason jars can be themed for any season or holiday, and they're perfect for birthdays, weddings, anniversaries, and any other celebration!
Cupcake liners can be used as the lid and fun themed picks can be added in as well. Cupcake liners are inexpensive, and are available in so many different themes and colors. They are an easy way to incorporate the colors you want for any party, celebration, or gathering. If you are like me and have loads of teachers to purchase for, one jar is a perfect gift, with the cupcake liner on it, and filled with yummy Christmas treats...
so . . here are the Christmas Mason Jar gifts I(my kids) gave to all the children's teachers . . .
