m&m printable gift tag

For my younger kids teacher gifts this year we made up some printable m&m gift tags to attach to a package of m&m candies.  We also attached with the tags some coupons for a Free Meal to one of our favorite food places…Cafe Rio.  We wanted to give each teacher something simple but useful that would let them know how much we appreciated them this year.

We also wanted it to be something that they might enjoy receiving and practically everyone we know around here loves Cafe Rio.  These printable gift tags are great because they can work for almost ANY occasion.  Use them for a simple Father’s Day Gift, Mother’s Day Gift or Birthday Gift.  You could also use them if someone around you needs a little cheering up or a little note so they know someone is thinking about them.

You don’t even have to attach a gift card to them if you don’t want to.  If someone showed up at my front door or dropped a fun little surprise in my mailbox (like chocolate), I know that it would really brighten up my day.  The kids and I want to do some fun little surprise drop offs of these to their friends this summer and we are looking forward to our secret little surprises!  It is such a simple way to spread sunshine to those around you.

Father’s Day Gift –He’s One Smart Cookie

I have another really simple Father’s Day Gift idea to share with you today!  I love anything that you can personalize.  I feel like it makes a gift a little more EXTRA special.  Like you added some simple details to make it unique and personal.

I simply took some Glassine Bags and printed this simple image on them individually.  I picked up the bags from a local shop that sells these amazing cookies and they sold me a few bags for .25 cents.

To print onto the bags, simply tape your Glassine Bags onto a piece of computer paper.  I have a free printable that you can print.  This shows you where to tape your bag so that you can center it and see where the image will print.  Place your bag where you want the picture to be.  I printed some right in the middle and then some a bit lower so I could fold down the top and add a little Father’s Day Tie.  For best results you will want to use a laser printer.

I also have printables customized for the older Father’s and Father figures in our lives…such as Grandpa and Papa!  Need a blank one?  I have provided a blank one as well so that you can give these to a teacher, a friend, a neighbor…really any one who needs a little surprise pick me up gift!

You could also surprise you kids with one of these on their last day of school to celebrate!  I usually try to welcome the kids home on that last day with some warm cookies and milk and am thinking it would be fun to slip the cookies in these baggies for each of them.  And, speaking of the last day of school…we are down to the final days here and we couldn’t be more excited!!

What about you? Are you almost finished with school at your house?
