Hello! WOW! Can you believe that Christmas is only 8 days away? Time sure flies by faster and faster each year.
Have you got all your Christmas shopping, baking, wrapping done yet? I’m done with the shopping, the wrapping is finished, but the baking . . . I’ve yet to bake one cookie!
For real, I’ve never waited until now to get my baking done. BUT I’ve also never had a busy Etsy Shop at this time of the year either. It’s been keeping me super, duper hoppin’. Along with everything else that comes along with motherhood and Christmas and running a blog and… I could go on and on, but I’ll spare you.
A BIG HUGE thanks to all of you that have been visiting my shop and placing orders! I SO appreciate the business!
Speaking of my shop, I’ve added the blue stripe printable gift card holder and the customized teacher printable bookmark and you can see more details of them in the photo’s below, because it’s part of the guy gift that I created:
This one was a Christmas gift that I made for one of my boys school teachers.
I love finding yummy coffee mixes to give as gifts.
I came upon this Mocha Coffee Mix recipe at allrecipes.com and decided to give it a try. It’s pretty good, so I created the batch and placed scoops of the mix in plastic baggies, tied them with twine and a fun tag and included a bag of the mix in this gift.
Last year I shared the Fireside Coffee Mix, which is super easy to make and really yummy too.
The coffee cup is from the Dollar Tree.
I also included a gift card to Barnes & Noble…
and put it in the printable blue stripe gift card holder that I sell in my shop.
I also made some bookmarks:
When I showed my husband these guys, he said.. “Hey, I’ll take some of those.” So you know that I’ll be making some for my man. :) I already have ideas rolling.
After creating the bookmarks, I printed and cut them out, laminated them, punched a hole and added twine.
The printable bookmarks are available in my shop HERE and would make for great stocking stuffers too. They can be customized with any name. They don't have to be for a teacher only.
Other printable bookmarks will be available in my shop in the near future, so be sure and check in often.
There you have it… a gift idea for any coffee lover, book reader man in your life.
I created something very similar for the lady teachers as well. I’ll show you that one in another post.
Today, I'm off to do some baking, with Christmas music flowing through the home. :) I just LOVE this time of the year - "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the YEAR!"
May you be a little inspired! Until next time,
