Easy Christmas Teacher Gift

{for any of your favorite teachers: piano, Sunday School, gymnastics, basket-weaving,
or just to have on hand for that unexpected drop-in}

Come mid-December, time, motivation, and creativity begin to wane. 
Here's my go-to for the easiest, most perfect treat that:

1. isn't going to go bad/stale/get tossed after a few days

2. requires no oven preheating or time spent in the kitchen


I found these on a Walmart endcap, but they're everywhere. 
Grab a few boxes, spend 10 minutes wrapping them up, and then 
embrace your holiday freedom.
They can chillax on the mantel/bookcase/somewhere else high and out of the dog's reach until you need them. 

(warning: if you leave them unwrapped they WILL disappear. Promise.)

Dress them up, dress them down, or cover in kraft paper and let the kids decorate with markers.
They're also the perfect size to plop on leftover tags from last year.


  1. Question: Where did you get that AMAZING wrapping paper with the music notes on it?

    1. I've sworn off buying any more paper, but when I saw it at Marshalls for 2.99, what could I do but get it? I had no choice :)

  2. I've been trying to find those exact bells. Where did you find them?

    1. They're at Dollar Tree in packs of 9. They come in gold/silver or green/red, and they always have tons of them.

  3. How do you tie the three bells onto the package???? I love it!

    1. They have a place to slip a piece of thread or ribbon through the top. I put three on a piece of fishing line, looped it around the knot of the black ribbon, and tied a knot in the back, cutting off the excess. They naturally group together like that - no talent required :)

  4. Valuable info. Lucky me I found your website by accident. I bookmarked it. This article is genuinely good and I have learned lot of things from it concerning blogging. thanks.
