More Happy Friday

Show those educators some love 💛

Teachers go above and beyond for our kiddos. And now that we’re approaching the end of the school year, show them how much they’re appreciated. With that said, this week’s Happy Friday submission comes in from Hip2Save Reader, Amy, and she’s sharing a cute teacher appreciation gift jar idea – from Dollar Tree!

It is that time of year when we are searching for frugal and fun ways to thank our teachers. I found these adorable glass jars with metal lids and plastic straws at my local Dollar Tree.

There are so many fun options to use these as teacher gifts. We filled one with a gift card to a local coffee shop and made a gift tag that said, “Thanks a latte for a great year!”

We filled another jar with drink mixes we found on clearance at our local grocery store. We added a tag that said, “It’s so refreshing to have a great teacher like you!”

These are fun, inexpensive, and an easy way to show a special teacher your thanks!

So sweet, so simple, and so thoughtful!

If you’re in need a last-minute teacher appreciation gift, consider stopping into your local Dollar Tree to pick up these cute cups and fill with either drink mixes or gift cards. Our DIY gal Lina also made fun gift card printables if you’re really in a pinch!
