For as long as I've been blogging I have been looking forward to Daniel being in school so that I could start doing teacher gifts. I'm amazed at the cute ideas you can find when spending far too much time in blogland.
The idea I decided on for Daniel's teacher this year was extremely simple. As I become more practiced I might get more complicated, but for now, simple is good.
Everything I read suggested going with practical items. Avoid the Christmas mugs with candy. (Funny, I got my very first Christmas mug with candy as a gift this year and I love, love, love mine. Maybe it's because it was the first, so I'm NOT saying don't ever give a mug. I love mine. I'll be posting a picture of it's cuteness tomorrow. I guarantee you'll want one too when you see this one.)
here, if you need more explanation. I only did the pen part.)
here. The only modification I did was used Special Dark Chocolate chips instead of Milk Chocolate chips, because they were what I had on hand. Some I completely covered in chocolate and some I just dipped the bottom in. Both were yummy! Again, I used all stuff I had on hand for this part of the gift.
Daniel, finished off the gift by drawing a picture for Mrs. A., the world's best kindergarten teacher ever.
