My daughter has 4 teachers this year. I wanted her to bring them each a little something for meet the teacher but wanted to keep it inexpensive and simple. I found these note pads at Joann fabrics, grabbed a pack of pens and made sure to include something sweet too! They were easy to put together and her teachers loved them.
Something special I added to these gifts was Gatsby chocolates. Now, let’s be honest, I don’t know many teachers who wouldn’t want something a little sweet that first week of school. And it is even sweeter when it’s chocolate that is better for you! Gatsby chocolate is just as rich and delicious as a premium chocolate bar but with significantly less calories and sugar. It’s the lowest calorie chocolate bar in the market, but you’d never know by the taste.
AG gave the teachers their gifts at 10:30 and when I saw them again later that afternoon, they raved about their goodies. I asked if they noticed that the chocolate was low sugar and calories and they had no idea! They said you couldn’t tell at ALL, one teacher didn’t even believe me until we looked at the wrapper again!
At home we enjoyed the chocolate bars along with the peanut butter cups and these are now going to have a permanent spot in my classroom teacher sweets drawer. They’ll be perfect for an afternoon pick me up without all the guilt!
Remember, thoughtful gifting doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg.
Sweet and SIMPLE will always be the way I go when it comes to showing appreciation or bring joy to others .
