teacher gift idea: summer sanity kit with free printable

School's almost out here and I always like to get a little something for my kids' teachers at the end of the year to express my appreciation to them for taking care of and teaching my babies. I'd been thinking of what to get them when I happened to pass some bulk packages of EOS Lip Balm and Hand Lotion at Costco while I was grocery shopping the other day. I knew exactly what to make for teacher gifts!

These Summer Sanity Kit teacher gifts are a great way to help teachers practice a little self-care over the summer months to re-energize and rest up before the new school year. I've even included free printable tags below to help make putting these together a cinch.


The concept of this teacher gift can be applied in a lot of different ways. I made mine a small gift box, but you could make yours a gift bag, a basket, or a small storage box with divided compartments.


I made my boxes with gold foil acetate sheets from the Clearly Posh collection by We R Memory Keepers using the 123 Punch Board.



Mine contain lip balm and hand lotion, but yours could include sun block, drink mix, a gift card, a beach towel, bubble bath, or anything else you think might help your child's teacher to relax and enjoy his/her summer.


I printed and punched out some tags with a circle punch, and then punched a small hole for tying with my Crop-A-Dile.


You can download these FREE printable gift tags and add them to your Summer Sanity Kits for teachers.
