Coach Appreciation gifts

 We did these for Ethan's soccer coaches.
 I got the idea from this website.  To go along with the "cool" theme we included sparkling "ice" lemonades, "cool" ranch Doritos, and Dentyne "ice" gum.
We also added a "Cold" Stone Gift card.

Graduation gifts

 Sara and I made these for some of our YW who are graduating this year.
 We found the jars at Hobby Lobby and used these labels/tags from here.

 Congratulations "smartie" pants.  Your hard work finally "paid" off!
 I found these cute lightbulb bottles at Hobby Lobby too! Jared and I made this for Kelton.  I used another vintage label from this website.
Congrats, Class of 2014!

Teacher thank you's

 I decided last minute to do a quick thank you for the teachers on the last day of school. I found this tag here.  I also love the tator tots and jello website.
She included a Jamba Juice gift card which is super cute but since we have so many teachers and I just did a gift card a couple weeks ago we decided to include a few single serving drink mixes and candy in each mason cup.

Visiting Teaching handouts

 So you probably know about these handouts but I got so excited this month when googling ideas for simple visiting teaching ideas.  To find out more info about visiting teaching click here.  So I like to bring a treat to each of the ladies I visit teach each month but I didn't have a lot of time this month so I was excited when I found a few websites that create tags that go with the lesson of that month.  This is especially wonderful when you only have time to drop something off.  Awesome and thank you people!
 I found this tag at Pink Polka Dot Creations.  Click here to find more of her ideas.
 I also found this lesson from the idea door. Click here for her website. I attached this to the back of the tag.
 This was for another month. This is from Marci Coombs' website which is one of my favorites. Click here to be directed to her amazing website.

 This is also from Marci Coombs! See she is super awesome and creative!
Thank you amazing bloggers who make my life more simple and fun!  I appreciate all the time you take to do these for us!

Teacher Appreciation Gifts

 This is what we did for Ethan's Teacher Appreciation gifts this year.
 I found the cute tags here at Skip to My Lou. She also has one for a guy teacher.  Love her blog!
 We attached the gift card to some Raspberry Brownie Bites. Here's the recipe:
 Bake your favorite brownies in a small muffin/tart pan for 10-13 minutes. Once their cooled you take a melon baller and press a dent into each of them. Then in a large bowl melt 1 cup of white chocolate melts in the microwave, then add 8 oz of softened cream cheese, 8 oz. thing of cool whip, and a jar of marshmellow cream and mix together. Place the mixture in a piping bag with Wilton Tip 1M and pipe a little on each brownie. Then top with a raspberry.  *I found these purple boxes at Wal-Mart after Easter.
I only had 3 purple boxes and Ethan has 4 helpers this year so I used a plain box too.
 We did the same for Wyatt's teacher but used different containers.  I found these at Hobby Lobby and used my big cellophane bags (12X24) to put them in.  This is where I ordered my bags if your interested.  They were wonderful to work with.

I loved how well this Sweet CeCe's gift card worked with this tag!
