Summer has finally begun, and the kiddos are out of school.  That last week is always a crazy one…especially trying to find the perfect gift for all the teachers and teaching assistants.  We like to give to gift cards, something the teacher can use for the classroom and something they can use for themselves.

What better way to package them, then in our new paper card sleeves.  Remember, you don’t always have to do something up on the computer, or add fancy flourishes…sometimes a colorful Sharpie does the trick!  That’s just what we did with ours, and we think they look pretty great.

What are your summer plans?  Are you heading out to the lake, a road trip or sticking close to home?  Whatever your plans, we know that the new issue of Garnish – the magazine is going to have lots of fun summer ideas for you.  Look for it in this space soon!

We saw this great idea on Pinterest and had to put our own Garnish spin on it.  So here you go…

  • 1. our squat gable box
  • 2. animal crackers for when your classroom feels like a zoo (packaged in our glassine bag)
  • 3. chewing gum to help you stick to it
  • 4. crayons to color your day bright and cheerful (how fun are these that we found at Target!)
  • 5. erasers to remind you everyone makes mistakes
  • 6. lifesavers for when you’ve had one of those days (also packaged in our glassine bag)
  • 7. Mounds bar for the mounds of confidence you give your students

We made a simple label on our computer that we jazzed up with some clipart we found online.  Tie the whole thing up with ribbon and you’ve got the perfect gift for the teacher!

Is it the middle of May already?!  Time to start thanking those men and women who spend all day with your children…their teachers.

We found this very cute apple scrub brush in the dollar bin, and it was the jumping off point for this fun gift.  Along with a cute tea towel and mini size soap, we put in a well deserved gift card.  And of course, we just had to use our new paper card sleeve and oval label to jazz it up.  Our cardboard clamshell keeps everything where it should be on the bus ride to school.  We think your child’s teacher will appreciate this one!

What do you like to give as a gift to the teacher?  Do you have a go-to gift or an idea you’d like to share?  Leave us a comment….we’d love to hear from you!

The end of the school year is approaching very quickly.  In fact, in some parts of the country, your children may already be on summer vacation.  Well, if you are in need of a teacher’s gift, we have an idea for you.  What about some jam and scones?!

If you are really ambitious, you can and your children can make some homemade jam.  Refrigerator jam is quick and easy to make yourself.  You can pick up some yummy scones at your local bakery or supermarket (or make those yourself too!).  And if you want to add a little something extra, what about a gift card to a coffee shop.  We used our small no soup for you container for the jam, our french fry scoop and a cello bag for the scones and we put it all inside one of our berry baskets.

This is also a great favor for a bridal shower, or a BBQ with friends.

We received a lovely email from Sarah, showing us how creative she was with some Garnishes.  She put together these thoughtful gifts for her child’s teacher…how cute!

Sarah says:

thank you so much for your fantastic products! we made 4 preschool gifts for my son’s teachers, for the end of the year. the ‘two for the road’ container was perfect for a pot of flowers and a ‘no soup for you’ cup of sweets. they were easy for my 4 year old to carry and give to his teachers, who all thought they were fantastic.
thank you for helping us make the day of some ladies who work very hard at loving little ones!

Thank you so much for sharing Sarah!  What are you thinking about giving as teacher’s gifts this year?  Give us a holler and let us know.

This week is Teacher Appreciation Week.  Don’t worry if you forgot, we’ve got a great idea for you.  And the best part…it is super easy!  You know how sometimes you leave an apple on the teacher’s desk?  Well kick it up a notch and leave an apple pie!

It just so happens that the mini apple pies that they sell at Starbucks fit perfectly into our large nut and party cup.  It was meant to be.  We added in of our Say What? wooden forks, jazzed up with some ribbon (just use a handy glue dot to attach it).  That’s all there is to it.  If you don’t have a Starbucks in your neck of the woods, there are lots of mini treats to be had at your local bakery or grocery store.  Say “thanks”, the Garnish way!

We realize it’s January…but it’s never to early to start thinking about who you ♥ for Valentine’s Day!  Today’s post is a quick and easy way to show the love…

We used our small ripple cup and some of our red tissue to hold everyone’s favorite candy, PEZ!  You could use it as a place holder on the dinner table, and it’s easy enough to leave on a teacher’s desk at school.  Garnish makes lovin’ so easy!

One of our customers, Audrey, sent us these pictures to let us know how she Garnished up our berry baskets.  She wanted to give to give her teachers some berry cookies…in the berry baskets, how adorable!

If we were a teacher at the school, we definitely wouldn’t mind finding one of these pretty baskets on our desk.  You can check out the details of Audrey’s teacher gift on her blog, Plays With Food.  Thanks so much for sending us your pictures Audrey!

What a cute way to use our wooden berry baskets! Who knew that strawberries could look so good!      Be sure to check out the rest of post on Jaime’s blog here.

That’s right!  Valentine’s Day is quickly approaching (can you believe it’s almost February?!)…and we’re here to give you some more ideas.  Our tie top bags are the right size for any gift you want give.  Does your child’s teacher like coffee?  Fill it with some gourmet coffee beans.  Does you husband play golf?  Fill it with some fancy golf balls.  Or, you can rock it out old school, and fill it up with candy.

And how great are our small kraft paper bags as a vase?  We just cut the bag to size with some fancy scissors and popped in a small bud vase with a flower.  Such a cute idea!  Don’t forget to ask for your set of print-ables at check out, and be sure to stock up on some square, round and oval labels.

Garnish + Enjoy
