Teacher Gift Ideas

see more by

I posted last week looking for ideas on great teacher gift ideas.  Because we got some great suggestions on our comments and Facebook page, I wanted to compile and share them with you!

* Gift card to Lakeshore Learning.

* Thoughtful cards telling your teacher how they made a difference in your child’s life.

* Gift card for Target, Amazon, Barnes & Noble so teachers can buy classroom materials.

* Gift card for Burke Williams for a spa pampering day.

* Gift card to Starbucks, Panera or another favorite local restaurant.

* Beach bag consisting of a monogrammed tote, monogrammed towel, magazines, and Barnes & Noble gift card for good beach reads.

* Scrapbook documenting the year’s events or photo book created online.

* Framed artwork from your child.

* Written letters from your child.

* Gift card to Nordstrom.

* Personalized desk pads, note cards, note pads or teacher planners from Erin Condren.

* Video:  Take a video of each child in the class sharing their favorite things about their teacher and use a program like iMovie to put together an end of the year video with these clips and photos from the year.

So, as it seems, from a lot of the teachers that commented, the most APPRECIATED gift is the GIFT CARD! Good luck with the end of the school year push mamas!  I am soooooo ready for summer!

Any more ideas? Please comment!

Glam + Give at Drybar Newport Beach

see more by

So, I had the pleasure of getting my first blowout at Drybar in Fashion Island earlier this month before my date night and I am HOOKED. The concept of a blowout bar in itself is amazing, but then I experienced the atmosphere and service at Drybar Newport Beach, and I was literally blown away.  Hee hee…

So, when my fellow Team Tiny Oranges teammate Kristin Bush, suggested getting Drybar on board to do a final hoorah fundraiser for the Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation, I was thrilled they were willing to help us.  And I am now even MORE in love with them knowing the company also has a big heart.   Thank you Kristin for coordinating this!

Let me tell you a little about the Drybar experience.

From the moment you arrive to check in for your appointment, you will be taken with the decor and abounding “chic-ness.”   You can then browse their “look book” and pick your style.  I went with the Cosmopolitan, a bunch of big loose curls, and I LOVED doing something different.

After your delightful shampoo and you will be taken to a station where you can watch “Chick Flicks” on the flat screens and enjoy your choice of complimentary bubbly, mimosa, white wine, fruit infused water, tea or coffee.  I thought I was in heaven.  A blowout & bubbly?  Mommy like!

After your service is complete, you will walk out with a spring in your step feeling gorgeous!  Can you put a price on that?  Not really, but get this, all the blowouts are only $35.  Yes, $35 for that pampering experience!

Glam + Give

Next week, all day on Monday, April 25th, 2011 and Tuesday, April 26th, 2011 from 8am – 8pm you can go and get a $35 blowout but if you mention “Team Tiny Oranges” on those two days when booking your appointment, Drybar will give $10 from each service to our team to help find a cure for pediatric cancer.

Please put this link on Facebook, email to your girlfriends, and make it a girls’ day of pampering and catching up!

Book an Appointment!

Click here to visit www.thedrybar.com, then click “Book an Appointment” in the top right corner of the screen.  Select Drybar Newport Beach, then you will choose your date and time.  In the “Special Requests” field, type “Team Tiny Oranges promotion” or “PCRF promotion,” so they know you are a part of our group.

Or, call 949.298.4676 to book an appointment over the phone.  Remember to mention “Team Tiny Oranges” or “PCRF” when you call.

You will love, love, love it AND you can get a great blowout to start your week! Enjoy & please post pictures on our Facebook page! I hope you will help support our last fundraiser before the big race on May 1st.  Thank you in advance for your support! XOXO
