Hi Friends! How was your weekend?? Ours was fun and relaxing and I’m ready for a big week ahead….the last week of school!!! Landry goes to the most darling pre-school 3 days a week and we have been SO blessed with the most amazing teachers. The end of school always means scrambling for a cute, yet functional gift for her sweet teachers and this year I am SO happy with what we came up with! I’m normally not a huge fan of DIY teacher gifts, because let’s be honest, they deserve something a bit nicer than anything a hot glue gun can provide, but I think that this DIY is an exception! You guys know my obsession with S’well bottles…I include them in nearly every gift guide and use them daily in real life…so I knew that I wanted to gift them each a S’well bottle. To make them more personal, I partnered with a darling Etsy shop to create custom S’well vinyl monograms + printable gift tags that read “Thanks for Being a S’well Teacher!” I mean how cute?! I’m obsessed with how they turned out and am sharing how easy they are to pull together…even if you are in a pinch for time!
Nordstrom has the absolute BEST selection of S’well water bottles. See the full assortment HERE. They come in 3 sizes, but the ones used here (and the size I like best) is the 17oz.
What You’ll Need:
S’well Water Bottle | I used the 17oz
Vinyl Monogram + Printable Gift Tag | Use code STYLEYOURSENSES for 10% off!!
Ribbon, Cellophane Treat Bags, Paper Crinkle (all from Michaels)
The monogram was super easy to apply and I mean how stinkin’ cute is the border made of apples and pencils?? So subtle, but the perfect nod to your favorite teacher.
Get a general idea of where you’d like it and peel backing off…it will now be sticky on the back. Place sticky side down and press firmly over all of the letters and border, making sure to get any bubbles out. Gently peel back and vinyl will remain attached.
Easy enough, right??? And something that he/she will actually use! The perfect teacher gift that comes in at right under $50 and is so easy to put together! Cheers to Summer-time!!! xo
p.s. This post is in no way sponsored by or affiliated with S’well bottles or Nordstrom…I’m actually just a huge fan of them in real life and think that they make the BEST gifts 🙂
