Giving Back: Make a Difference at ARF

Just a quick post today-- many of the TpT sellers have teamed up for a day of giving back. We've noticed that Sundays are big days for teachers as they're purchasing products to use at school the following week. =) So today, we're each donating a portion of our sales to a charity of our choice. It's our little way of paying it forward and making a difference.

I'm donating 100% of proceeds from my store to a charity that is near and dear to my heart, ARF. ARF (Animal Rescue Fund) is a no-kill shelter in Muncie, Indiana, where I adopted my sweet girl Isabelle. She's been with me since I started teaching and brings so much joy to our life. Couldn't imagine myself without her!

Each time you buy a resource on TpT, your purchases directly help other teachers. Today, they go even further as we give back to causes that are special to us. Happy shopping, friends!

Thoughtful Holiday Gifts for Teachers

Teacher Gift Ideas under $15
It's that time of year again, and if you're anything like me you're scrambling to find the perfect gift for everyone without breaking the budget. My friends have been asking about teachers on their lists. I always stress that it really is the thought that counts and something as simple as a homemade card from a student can really lift a teacher's spirit during this hectic season. Here are some of my other favorite finds for less than $15 this year.

Obviously, I'm a Jamberry girl so I have to start with that. A sheet of wraps will do 2 manicures and 2 pedicures so it's an inexpensive gift she can use more than once. She'll have a month's worth of cute nails that hold up to classroom tasks and there's a pattern/color for every style. Stick them in a kraft paper sleeve with washi tape and ribbon, tada impressive gift.

Or how about a bottle of lacquer? You could go with a seasonal gift tag or "thanks for helping me polish up my skills" if you wanted something teachery. Getting to pamper yourself is always fun.

Here's an idea I have been drooling over. I'm a big hot chocolate fan and this drink cuff is so cute! For those who want to DIY and get a little crafty, make two and send one to me okay? ;) You could also tuck in a small gift card to a local shop. 

Here's another sewing/DIY project... hand warmers! Car duty and/or recess duty in the winter is no fun, trust me. These cute little warmers would be such a thoughtful gift. If you aren't into DIY, I also found these on Etsy premade for $5 each.

If the kitchen is more your specialty, how about these holiday pretzels? We make chocolate covered pretzels each year, but this is such a fun twist! Dip in white chocolate, dip in red glitter, and pop on a mini marshmallow. So smart!

If you're not into DIY and just want to grab something you know she'll use, you can't go wrong with killing germs. We love your children, but many are they full of 'em. ;) Add this printed tag for a personal touch.

Have something else in mind and just need cute packaging? Check these out, love!

Whatever you decide to give, truly know that it IS the thought that counts. Check out more inspiration on my Gifts for Teachers or Winter Pinterest boards.
