Holiday Gift Ideas for Teachers

I’ve spent the last month agonizing over teacher gifts for Katelyn’s teachers.
I really wanted to do something personable.
Something crafty, creative and not store bought.
There’s nothing like waiting till the last minute to put it all together, right?
Sometimes I think I work better under pressure.
I was able to get 2 gifts done earlier in the week, but I will admit the other 2 were created between pick up and drop off at preschool today. You know, the last day of school.
After scouring Pinterest and some of my favorite blogs, here’s what I came up with.
For Katelyn’s Teacher:
White Chocolate Snickerdoodle Holiday Sprinkled Cookies
I found this delicious recipe and modified it a little because one of Katelyn’s teachers can’t have chocolate.
1. Mix your Snickerdoodle Mix.
2. Separate the sugar packet into two bowls. I mixed one with red sprinkles and one with white sugar crystals. Then in the third bowl I had white chocolate chips.

 

3. I used a tablespoon measuring spoon to scoop my dough. Then I added in the white chocolate chips.

 

 

4. Once your white chocolate chips are mixed in, roll in your sugar and sprinkles.
5. Bake as directed on Snickerdoodle package. Let cool!
6. Place cookies in mason jar. Then I used some red fabric and green tulle to make them look Christmasy. I found these super cute holiday printable tags and I knew right away I wanted to use them as the gift tags.
Chocolate Chip Cookies in a Brown Bag with Tulle and Tags

Then, while Katelyn was in school today, I found and amazing recipe for these thick, chewy chocolate chip cookies. I decided they would make the perfect gift for the preschool administration.
1. Bake cookies per recipe.
2. Once cooled, wrap in cellophane.
3. Place the cookies in a brown paper bag. I didn’t have time to do this, but I found this adorable printable bags idea.
4. Use the tulle to tie the bag closed.
Voila!! Super cute teacher gift ideas!
