Simple Holiday Teacher Gift

Each day that my boys open another door on the advent calendar, it reminds me how close we are to the holidays… and how terribly behind I am! If you’re like me (and I’m fairly sure that anyone who didn’t start Christmas prep in December is in the same boat), then you need some quick and easy holiday gift ideas too.

When my friend Laura Kelly sent me some adorable Me and My Peeps personalized stationary from Expressionery, and asked me to write a little about it… I was super excited! While I’ve whipped up a little craft to go with the personalized stationary that makes it a great holiday gift for a teacher, it also would be a great stocking stuffer for moms, aunts, sisters, or kids who love writing their own notes!

Simple Teacher Gift

I used the notepad Laura sent me, but you can customize a Me and My Peeps notepad for whoever you like. I paired this one with pens, to show how it would make a great gift! Use Promo Code PEEPS for 30 % off sitewide. * And order by December 19th to get your custom gifts before Christmas.

To make the fun holly pens you’ll need:
Holly (from the floral section of the craft store)
Floral Tape

Pull the leaves and berries from the holly stems.

strip off leaves and berries

Wrap the end of a pen with floral tape to cover it. Stretch your floral tape as you wrap to help activate the stickiness, and get it to really stick in place.

wrap pen

Place the leaves and berries, and wrap into place.

wrap in place

Wrap all the way down to the end of the wires, and back up. Tear off the floral tape, and stick into place with some pressure.
