Great Teacher Gifts

Contributor post by Alicia from AliciasFindings

Teachers have to deal with so much in a day, that they deserve much praise and some great gifts.

Some great ideas for gifts are: Gift cards, gift baskets, volunteer your time and so much more.

What do you have in your shop that would make a great teacher gift.

Karen from timetalentjewels says small children enjoy giving teachers flowers, why not give their teacher a fun set of stacking bracelets (stacks of flowers). Beautiful colors of corals, melons and fuchsia along with silver what fun bracelets! Enjoy!

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio said our zipper pouches are perfect teacher gifts. Perfect for holding all those little stickers that are passed out throughout the day. Durable and easy to wash, they’re the perfect take anywhere pouch for field trips or conferences. The perfect size for organizing electronic gadgets like memory sticky, SD cards and earphones. And they’re perfect for holding that gift card to be included with your teacher appreciation card.

Elisabeth from LizPOriginals states most teachers love to read a beautiful bookmark and a gift card to bookshop will make a great gift and can be used over and over again.

Cristal from DesignsbyCristal says this is one of my biggest sellers and it’s bought by teachers themselves. Teachers can be a trusted source of advice for students weighing important life decisions. Educators can help their students pursue higher education, explore career opportunities and compete in events they might otherwise have not thought themselves able to. Students often look to their teachers as mentors with experience and knowledge, and, as an educator, you will almost definitely be asked for advice at some point during your career.

Cindy from Cynhumphrey said every teacher needs a clipboard to keep organized! They constantly have some sort of list or pile of papers they need to keep in order or review. This decorated clipboard will stand out above all others! It’s a one-of-kind conversation piece that the teacher will be able to treasure, in her classroom, all year-long.

Richard and Tatiana from DesignstheLimit states our personalized pen sets make the perfect gift for teachers from our Etsy shop. Choose to include either a twist ballpoint pen, rollerball pen, mechanical pencil, or a letter opener to make your gift complete. Enter any text and choose any font we have available to make your gift unique. Gift wrap available for gift giving made easy @DesignstheLimit.

Judy from JAMsCraftCloset says this framed cross-stitched ‘Teachers Are Special People’ wall art would make an awesome gift for that special teacher. I can see it hanging in the classroom near the teacher’s desk. It is a good reminder to students, parents, and other teachers.

Niatta from NiattaCrochet said searching for a great gift for teachers and baseball team moms my customer stopped on this listing. Ever since she became my most valued customer, gifting and stashing many colors of this design and even asking for variations with more colors, to match individual preferences. I loved it when she stashed 2 blue ones for her future daughters-in-law, having two boy kids, aged 8 and 10 years old!

Marjorie from mscenna states this key chain is the perfect apple for the teacher! A retro inspired key chain featuring red and green vintage beads and an apple charm, a great gift for a fun loving teacher!

Przemila from CanisArtStudio says owl – a symbol of wisdom and science. Hand-painted wooden box – pencil case or glasses case.

Heather from MooseintheMint said this is a personalized thank you card, so you can chose the wording that suits, and it’s blank inside for you write an individual message. The initial key chain is a small personal gift – teachers must run out of space!

Carrie from FantasyBubbles16 states every teacher should have soft lips. It’s hard to talk and teach when you’re lips are super dry. Our Lip Butter feels amazing and leaves lips silky smooth.

Marta from GottliebTextiles says this is a very practical gift that will fit in any home. So if you do not know your teacher well, you won’t go wrong with this one. Everyone washes dishes at home thus the dish cloths will be in use.  Moreover, pretty ones with floral embroideries on.

My Best Friend

Contributor Post by Mary of Stock Lane Studio

Bestie, BFF, pal, peep, soulmate, kitty or pup, best friends come in all forms. They make us laugh, help us cry, helped make us who we are, and will never be forgotten.   From your little furry tail-wagging pal, to your husband or wive, your perfect bridesmaid, or your bestie who is miles away, Etsy Christmas in July has a great selection of  best friend gifts.

Przemila K from CanisArtStudio says:

The dog is the symbol of the best friend and many people love dogs and have their pets. Portrait of your favorite pet is a perfect gift to express friendship. This is a very good gift for every occasions and souvenir for many years. I paint oil paintings and draws as well. Today I want to present my offer of Pet portraits – large size pastel drawing the whole silhouette on the scenic background!

Caroline from SoyCandlesbyCaroline says:

Best friends are always together near or far. I think the beauty of a best friend is being able to feel connected to them when you have not talked or seen them in a long time.

Candles are a great way to show your best friend you are thinking of them while you are not together! A bff candle allows the flame to still go strong when the other is not in the room and lets your friend know you are always there!

Gifts that can be both useful and appreciated are the best ways to express thoughtfulness in gift giving and an understanding of your friend’s needs. We have the perfect gifts to make a house a home, with personalization.
Choose any of the products we have available depending on your best friend’s needs and personalize your purchase using any of our designs, the fonts we have available, or submit your own images to turn your gift into a personalized keepsake to be treasured and put to good use in good company.

Thank you for this opportunity to share my bff craft.

We all need a friend or two whom we can call our ride or die. So to me friends are like flowers they grow with each passing day and when you find a gem like this, you end up picking them over and over again!

Best Friend Lanyard And Keychain

Cindy Humphrey from Cynhumphrey says:

 My best friend loves dragonflies so I thought it was only fitting to let her inspire me to create this scarf pendant. Dragonflies have been a subject of intrigue going way back in time. I find this fitting for my best friend. She too intrigues me! I think all best friends seem to have an intriguing or fascinating quality that draws us together.

The fascinating thing about this scarf pendant though is that the floral button is interchangeable! Simply replace it with any other special snap button (which can be purchased separately in many jewelry stores) and you have a whole new look resting on top of the dragonfly! Now that is intriguing!

Mairi from mairidesign says:

For many, their life-long best friend is their mother. When we sadly lose our best friend, she leaves a gap in our lives that can never be replaced. The butterfly is recognised as a symbol of hope, and with my iridescent butterfly plant decoration, I include this poem…

“A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam, and for a brief moment, its glory and beauty belong to our world. But then it flies again, and though we wish it could have stayed, we feel lucky to have seen it.”

What’s In Your Office Bag?

Contributor post by Alicia from AliciasFindings

Most of us when we go to work have a bag or some other container that has projects, items for the office and so on. If you work at home you most likely have a bin or such too.

We want to know what items you have in your office bag or something for an office.

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio says our ‘Nursing’ door hangers are perfect for home and office. Small and portable, they easily fit into a purse or diaper bag, so keeping co-working abreast of what’s going on behind that door is child’s play. Keep one in your bag, one at home and one at the office. Take one just about anywhere you plan to breastfeed or pump.

Richard and Tatiana from DesignstheLimit said the one thing that you should never be without is the one thing more powerful than a gun, a pen. Make sure to get your pen back every time with personalization. We offer a variety of pens including maple wood, rosewood, and bamboo and have both the twist ballpoint pens and rollerball ink pens too. Choose any font we have available to make your pen unique to your personality! We have a whole section of our shop devoted to office gifts for professional gift giving occasions throughout the year. Ship direct with gift cards and gift wrap available and make every gift giving opportunity a personalized gift experience @DesignstheLimit

Mairi from mairidesign states I like to dress my bag up with some lovely glass beads. I can attach these danglers to my keys, zips or handles, and fidget with them when commuting to and from work. On a stressful day, they can act as worry beads – beautiful and functional!

Cindy from Cynhumphrey says one thing that I always throw in my office bag when I get to work is my keys. Everyone has keys and this cute movable sexy cat key ring is a fun accessory to own! Perfect for any cat lover or lady with class!

Bevan from TimberDimensions states reading is education, education is growth. I always have a Book Bird close to hand so that I can keep up with the latest trends, comfortably.

Przemila from CanisArtStudio says the business card holder is necessary for both your own business and at work. I made this small item, especially for the businesswoman.The hand-painted wooden case with little spring songbird in pastel colors is a nice addition to a woman’s handbag in every situation.

Of course, you can order another with your favorite bird or another theme.

Make My Life Easier

Contributor post by Alicia from AliciasFindings

When you think of getting organized for yourself, your family, your business and your life in general what comes to mind?

Lists, storage containers, bottles, boxes, planners etc.

Judy from JAMsCraftCloset says what a pretty way to organize your papers, magazines, etc., then this gold wire Cottage Chic beaded wall organizer? I love when I find something unique at estate sales and this is one of them.

Cindy from Cynhumphrey said I happen to be a lady who has a lot of rings and stud earrings. The earrings really don’t store well in the homemade earring frame I made so they often would get thrown into a bowl and sit in a muddled mess on my counter.

This unique koi designer shoe solved the problem! Not only can I use it to store rings, it also works for my stud earrings! All I have to do is simply slide the jewelry I want to store in between two of the cushioned rows and I’m organized!

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio states I love cooking, and I have loads of coffee and flour stained cookbooks. But many of my family recipes are scattered on loose papers and frequently lost or overlooked. My Mother’s beloved handwritten recipe booklet is getting worn and tattered.

Printable recipe papers for a family recipe binder has solved that problem. My sisters and I are gradually transcribing my Mother’s book for future chefs, and we’re adding our own new recipes as well. Since the recipe papers are digital, we can print out at home, but also email recipes to share with family and friends.

Our SLP customers love these printable recipe pages. This black and white version is especially popular because cooks can print out as many as needed but they don’t have to use up a lot of their home computer printer ink in doing so. The papers can be printed out in black and white, or used with standard American letter-sized colored paper.

We have a Deluxe version as well, with many more options, and more designs available in our ~Recipe~ section. SLP even offers an recipe transcription service! Happy baking.

Przemila from CanisArtStudio says I prepared a series of wooden painted boxes with natural themes. Here is a natural wooden box for jewelry with the theme of spring bird and apple blossom. It’s very good also to hold credit cards or other treasures. This is something for those people who like to have a lot of small things and can hide this little mess into a nice, colorful box that will decorate your bedroom or desk.

Marta from GottliebTextiles said a makeup bag is a very big helper to keep your bag nice and tidy. All your lipsticks, credit cards, coins, keys, or any other small items can fit in this practical purse. No more desperate digging in your bag.

Richard and Tatiana from DesignstheLimit states the perfect personalized gift for the owner of a disorganized desk is only a click away, we permanently engrave all of the products in our shop and specialize in creating personalized gifts using any of the designs in our portfolio, fonts we have available from our selection, and also offer additional design services for logo conversion, gift wrap, and gift cards for shipping directly to your recipient.

Mairi from MairiDesign states like all our hearts, this fiery-red glass heart is strong yet fragile, treat it kindly and it’ll last a lifetime. Beautiful glass for the sunshine to catch and remind us how much we are loved.

willowvalleyvintage from WillowValleyVintage says we were thrilled to find this set of angel candle huggers complete with their original box!

These were intended to be Christmas decorations, but could easily be placed in other candle holders and “hug” pink or white candles for Valentine’s Day. Each angel holds a puffy pink heart. They were made by Dansan in Japan Circa 40’s.

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio says we have all met those teachers who just keep giving and giving. We’ve designed our ‘Big Hearts Little Minds’ art in honor of all those educators who always have more love, patience and wisdom to share. Since this item is digital it’s really versatile and can be used as a digital greeting, inserted in a blog or email, or printed out at home or professionally to give as a gift.

Astrid Stenerud Prayag from RedNeedleQuilts says love in the air and St Valentine’s Day should be celebrated every day. Decorate your table with these unique place mats and enjoy a romantic dinner for two. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Reception Decor

Contributor post by Michelle of EviesToolEmporium

So you’re giving a reception! Wedding? A special event? What have you seen at receptions that knocks your socks off? Our Christmas in July team members shared these special reception items and stories.

Przemila K from CanisArtStudio says:

Wooden heart is useful both as a decoration and a small gift for a wedding or other party. Usually, I add a small wooden heart to every order in my store but my clients ask me to order a special heart with their pet portrait or another own motive, Therefore I have designed a series of wooden painted hearts like this:

Christine from cwagenblass9 says:

Personalized gift tags for your wedding guests that say “Thank You” for being apart of your special day.

Stock Lane Studio from StockLaneStudio says:

This past summer I was at a wedding and a cell phone was ringing during a crucial part of the ceremony. It was the bride’s own mother who had forgotten to turn her phone off. She was so flabbergasted (and probably nervous and embarrassed) she didn’t really turn it off correctly. So a little while later it rang again!!

SLS event signs present an elegant way to get the necessities out of the way during any hush hush occasion. We do offer printed signs as well as our digital, print yourself variety. This comes in handy since once you’ve purchased the digital file, you are able to print off as many as needed in a number of sizes.

Richard and Tatiana from DesignstheLimit says:

One wine decanter to serve them all! Our sand-carved decanters don’t get any bigger! Impress your guests and keep them entertained at the same time. Don’t wine about not finding a unique idea for your reception, visit our shop @Designsthelimit for more ideas.

Weddings are a true blessing. Often weddings take place in a church and are officiated by a pastor. This is a clear glass church figure with stained glass window. The glass church lights up by a switch.

Elisabeth Perez from LizPOriginals says:

I think a very cute way to make shower and wedding favors look special is adding some charms to the gifts! I can do anything and any theme a bride would wish for! Be it zipper pull or just add on to the ribbon the favors are tied with
making wedding favor gifts a memento for years to come!
