Ahead of the game for once!

It only took me a month but for once I am prepared for teacher gifts! No last minute box of chocolate & Wal Mart gift card in a 99 cent bag this year! The gift that says “I stopped on my way to school today to get this.”

Thanks to advanced planning I’m giving a bag of M&Ms, an ornament & a Target gift card in a decorative bucket!

Yeah, I’m awesome!

And they are wrapped!

I made these guys over a couple of weeks (slowest crocheter ever!)

They can be tree ornaments or just holiday knick knacks

Then I gathered my stuff in a Target run Monday

And assembled the buckets yesterday

Now if they can just arrive in one piece at school today.

omgosh, how cute are they? Those are the gifts that always stump me ... my youngest has 3 teachers and my eldest has 5, plus karate instructors and parents of some friends, blah blah blah. I don't want to spend a fortune! I made jarred cookie mixes this year and while I like them, they are so freaking labor intensive that I don't know if it was worth the trade-off in the price.

Those are so freakin' cute! And I bet it feels GREAT to have a gift done that the teachers will know you put some thought into. Lovely job.

Oh, so cute :-) I made the little chocolate treats I mentioned on my blog a few days ago, and packaged them prettily in mugs. My recipe made more chocolate treats than I expected though. Everyone might be getting them this year....!

The snowmen are adorable! You certainly wrapped everything up so nicely. I am sure the teachers will appreciate your thoughtfulness.

Every time I read about your Target buys I get unreasonably (and unseasonably) envious! Wish we had them here. Great gifts!

Stacey, those are adorable gifts. I still have to get mine done for tomorrow a.m. and here I sit playing in the SSD forum :)
