An ornament as a gift...

Do you give Christmas gifts to your kids' teachers at the end of school term? Well I try to... Having three kids and every child has at least 2 teachers it is adding up on the gift list. I have done chocolate, flowers, home baked cookies, drawings... I am running out of ideas on what to give all the wonderful teachers. So when I went Christmas shopping I totally fell in love with the Christmas ornament department. Especially these beautiful hand painted Christmas balls. I bought almost a dozen to give away.

We made cute paper tags from paper prints of Santa that we glued on and attached it all with a cute red ribbon to the ball. What are these paper prints called in English? In Swedish we call them "bokmärken". I used to collect them in a special album. They are like stickers but without the glue. And I adore them.


On the back of the gift tag I wrote Happy Christmas and Thank you teacher for this term. And then each child signs with their name. Simple and cheerful. :D

I have already given away a couple of these. One to my physio therapist and one for Luca's psychomotricity therapist. As a thank you for all their efforts in helping, guiding, teaching and caring for us. So far the receivers have been very smiley and touched by their gifts.  I think I have come up with a success gift this year. I guess I am not the only one who loves Christmas ornaments.

If you, like me, have struggled to come up with what to give this year, give this a go! Fun and less expensive than a box of chocolate to purchase. The tag is so simple to craft and I just wrap these up in cute paper gift bags with a bow on. These gifts are pure pleasures to give.

  9. And you know I read somewhere that when you receive a new christmas tree decoration and put it on the tree - you make a wish and it is bound to come true. :) I make such presents this year. ;-)
