Easy Teacher's Gift (And a Plea for Help)

So it's that time of year again.  Time to say goodbye to teachers and hello to summer vacation.

I always like to say goodbye with a token parting gift.  As some of you might remember, teacher gifts are kind of a "thing" for me.  Read more about that HERE.

This year's gift is a simple one, but I think it will be appreciated nonetheless.  Here's how I did it:

I went out and bought a pack of $10 Starbucks gift cards and several reusable Starbuck's cups (sold in Starbuck's for $2—love them).  Then I put the gift cards inside the cups.

Now here's the part I'm not so sure about.  After I was done I wrapped the whole thing up in cellophane and attached a tag.

This is my tag.

It's supposed to be a joke—not a joke about the teacher, but rather a joke about Starbuck's Baristas.

Do you get the joke?

(Please say you do...)

I was originally going to write directly on the cup but my handwriting is awful and I thought they might appreciate a pristine cup instead of one that had been scribbled on.

Seriously, I'd love your feedback on this, internet.  (Because I have 48 hours before I have to give these bad boys out and I want to know if I should change the tag.)  



  1. I didn't get it until you said it was a barista joke. I would change it unless you've actually talked with the teacher about this very thing, in which case it is hilarious. I'm not a coffee drinker, so I'm probably not the right person to ask, but I did receive quite a few coffee-related gifts during my teaching years.

  2. I got it and think its very funny, but I did read your barista joke comment before reading the tag. Cute idea! If you're unsure you could write something on the back or say something about it being a barista joke.

  3. Love it! I love that you left the cup clean and pristine, too. I had no idea they sold cups! What a perfect end of the year gift.

  4. Starbucks Gift Card is the best thing on internet you will get today.


Comments let me get to know my readers.

They also make me a do a little happy dance every time I open my email.

Don't you want to be a part of that?
