With less than 2 weeks left until school is out, the boys and I worked on an end of year teacher gift this weekend. Oranges seem very sunny and summery to me, so we decided an orange themed gift would be fun and easy to do.
We picked out a few fun little orange themed goodies including an orange gift card. Then added an “Orange You Glad It’s Almost Summer” card. The best part about this gift is that it can be easily customized to a teacher’s likes, hobbies etc and it’s totally budget friendly.
It’s pretty easy to find fun orange themed items at discount stores. We found orange sticky notes, orange chapstick, orange gum, orange lotion and an orange flower pot to stick everything in. Add the cute printable card and a gift card (or skip it if it’s not in your budget), and you are done. I had the boys write a note for their teachers on the back of the card.
Cute Orange Themed Gift Idea
While putting this together, I realized an orange themed gift would be a fun idea for friends too. So I also made an “Orange You Glad We’re Friends” printable too.
By the way, I print using HP Instant Ink, a subscription ink service. Ink cartridges are automatically sent to me as I need them, based on my printer use. There are a couple different levels of service but all are very reasonable and way more convenient than running out of ink at 9PM on a Sunday night, which ALWAYS happens to me. The best part of the service is the price is the same for color ink or black ink, so I can get as wild and crazy with color as I want when creating fun projects.
