A second look "We whisk you a merry kiss-mass"

 



My kids have great teachers and even though gift-giving is not an expectation I still want them to know that they are having a positive impact in my children’s lives. 

Here’s the thing: While teachers really appreciate the spirit behind end-of-year gifts, they really don’t have the storage space for yet another “No. 1 teacher” mug.  so, last Christmas I “whisked” up four of these. The gifts were a huge success because they were different and useful!
So here we are..the beginning of December and my mind has turned to what I will be making this year.

I took a second look at this wonderful teacher’s gift that I made last year but realised we have a teeny tiny problem.
 
My daughter has the same teacher my son had last year.  I doubt this one gift idea will make a second appearance but it’s too good not to share!  I’m still going to make something but the pinterest hunt is on.
If you have something you think is really easy and fun to make I would love to hear about it!

“We Whisk you a Merry Kiss-mas

Materials:

whisk ($1.25 each at Dollarama)
holiday hershey kisses ($4.49 a bag at Save on foods) *we used two*
clear plastic goodie bag (2 for $6.00 Save on foods)
ribbon-wire and curling
tag (here’s a great pdf: “we whisk you a merry kiss-mas”)
Directions:
Determine how many kisses you want in the whisk.  Separate one set of wires on the whisk so there is a space wide enough to put the kisses in.  Reshape the wires of the whisk.  Place filled whisk in plastic bag.  Tie wire ribbon around the whisk handle towards the top of the bag to close it.  Tie the curling with the tag under the wire ribbon.  Curl the ends of the curling ribbon.  Done!
I have about $3.50 in each whisk I made.  

Do you make gifts for your children’s teachers?
Teachers: What was the most memorable and meaningful token of thanks you have ever received?
