Teacher Valentine's

 Valentine's Day is quickly approaching and with the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it's easy to forget last minute gifts, birthday cards or even a simple thank you card. With that being said, one thing I learned from my Mom is to have a gift box. Now don't go all crazy and buy everything on sale at Target but instead, buy with a purpose. I picked up these cute little chalkboard jars a few months ago from Target for $3 each, knowing that I had 4 teachers to buy for, I only picked up 4. The chalk wasn't next to the jars in the store but with the jars in mind, I thought a small little box of chalk would pair nicely for a gift. At $1 each, my gift total is under $5, total win!

My craft stash always has paper, twine, ink and stamps, so a quick tag was made. I added a small red punched out paper heart to the mustache and let my kiddos write their names. A small chalk heart doodle on each of the jars and a cute little gift was put together without any stress. If you don't have stamps or ink, don't worry, instead grab a brown paper bag and cut out a heart. Let your kids doodle on it, write to, from, and tie onto a simple bag of M&M's. It doesn't have to be fancy or a printable to come from the heart. If you can't gift sweets, tie a tag onto a bag of apples or carrots instead, with the following written on your tag, "Valentine, an apple a day keeps the blues away" or "Valentine, you make my heart crunch", cause really...it's all about making someone smile!
