Coke Teacher Gift

I am so glad that I finally am getting this post up. I have been in a battle with my printer all night and was almost in tears. But, I outsmarted that little booger and am rolling with this super-cute teacher gift!  I want to go ahead and apologize in advance for all of the jumping around I will be doing over the next few weeks. I have a lot of Birthday, Teacher Appreciation, Earth Day, Mother's Day, and Cinco De Mayo stuff to get out and it won't all be in order. I plan to give you 10 days of Teacher's Gifts, so be sure to check back each day. Here is my first one!
I wanted to do something retro, so I thought back on Coke's old slogan "The Real Thing". I found this little retro six pack at Wal-Mart and slapped on this printable with some baker's twine. If your child will be transporting this gift, it might be a good idea to get plastic bottles due to safety issues.  I, however, just could not pass up this cute little retro packaging. I love all things retro, you should see My Kiddo's nursery!

Here is the free-printable link for subscribers to my blog. Just a note: I printed mine off on recycled paper for that retro look. Yours might look different depending on the paper you use.

I take teacher appreciation very seriously and encourage everyone to do something special for those who invest so much time and energy into our children's lives. Teachers have such an influence in our children's lives! Let's let them know we are thankful. Nine more super-cute teacher gifts to follow soon.

In an effort to be grammatically correct, I have changed the printable to "who's" instead of "that's".  I also made one for multiple teachers in a class like My Kiddo's!

  3. LOVE the idea, but technically it should say "For a teacher WHO's the Real Thing." Sorry, but the that/who and the that/which errors are among my biggest pet peeves. And, for a teacher no less.

  4. Oh my goodness I'm kind of cracking up about the grammer thing. I never would have known the difference. And I was a teacher. Anyway, I think this is incredible. I'm a Coke lover. And the old-fashioned bottles are so cute!!
