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.

    1. Thanks, Rachel! I might just do that :)

  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.


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?
