Lisa's Clever Teacher Gift

My friend, Lisa Harrington, made this awesome Valentine's gift set for the teachers this year. She took a box with compartments in it and covered it with some pretty floral designer paper. (Originally, the box had skulls on it.) Then she altered some hand soap and hand sanitizer bottles by covering them with pretty paper, ribbon, and hand stamped floral tags. She added handcream, wipes, Shout stain remover pads, and candy. Isn't this such a clever gift idea? I am a former teacher and I definitely would've loved to have received this gift! You wouldn't believe how teachers go through these items! I just love practical, yet pretty gifts. Lisa, thanks for letting me share your awesome creation with my blog followers!

That IS an awesome idea! The teachers I know are all overloaded with apple stuff so when they get these, and done up this creatively they're over the moon! Great job!!
