Thankful Tumblers make great (and frugal) Teacher Gifts
With Teacher Appreciation week and the end of the year coming up, it’s time to think of ways to thank the teachers in your kiddos life.  I am always wanting to find a creative idea.  I first found this great teacher gift idea on several Pinterest boards (great resource for creative gift ideas). I did this for my kiddos teachers last year and loved how it turned out for me.  I used the “quenching my thirst for knowledge” phrase for the  elementary  teacher and the the “Living Water” phrase for teachers at the Christian Preschool.  You could also use the phrase, “Thanks for “ade”ing my learning”.

Thankful Tumblers make great (and frugal) Teacher Gifts
Here are the supplies you will need to make these Thankful Tumblers Teacher gifts:

  • Plastic Tumbler w/Straw (You know I love these things!)- Bought mine in a 2 pack for $7.99 at Marshal’s you can also find a wide variety of tumblers on Amazon!
  • Crystal Light Flavor packs- (find coupons in the database and check for Ibotta offers)
  • Tissue paper- Free!  This is tissue paper from the Victoria’s Secret bags when you make a purchase in store (yes I keep it!)
  • Thanks phrase paper- I created this in Word by using the “underline” feature and then changing the color from black to blue.  Then cut 2 small horizontal slits to slip onto the straw. OR use my thankful tumblersnote pdf 
  • Gift Card (not shown)- I will also be slipping a small gift card inside.  Buy them at Kroger or Giant Eagle to earn fuel discounts.

    I love this idea! I especially like that it uses Crystal Light packets. My son’s teacher doesn’t drink coffee, and most of the Tumbler ideas I have seen involve coffee items. Thanks! #ThrowbackThursdaylinkup

      Kristen- I am not a coffee drinker either, so I definitely think the project was a bit biased that way! ;) Thanks for coming over from the linkup!
