Hand Sanitizer for Teacher Gift

Pin It

The end of the school year is fast approaching and I haven't managed to get much done yet for our many wonderful teachers.  The teachers we've had this year deserve so very much. 

I wanted to share a very quick, very easy, very affordable way to show some thanks to those teachers. They are absolutely fabulous people.  I know, these are not exactly an idea that has not been done before...but this is my version!

The supply list for this one is quite simple!  Thank Goodness!
All you need are hand sanitizer bottles (removable labels work best).  You can even use the generic store brand for this one because you will remove all the brand labeling.  These were 99 cent bottles.
Stickers, Vinyl, Stencils, Paint...anything you can use to get a saying onto the label!  Color & saying of your choice... and some ribbon.  I used glittery pink stickers for mine.  All of our teachers this year are female.  Yeah!  'Cause you know I luv PINK and I luv luv luv anything BliNGy!

I chose 2 short sayings that would fit with the size stickers I chose.
For Austin's teacher..."Germ Juice".  He was NOT happy about the pink stickers so we comprised on the color of the ribbon.  After all, it's not for him!  Geez, boys...!

For Alexis' teacher ..."A Squirt Kills Dirt".  Wanted 'just' as squirt kills dirt, but it wouldn't fit.  Oh well, don't sweat the small stuff.

Unless you want to use some of the hand sanitizer... or take another shower...

Very simple as promised and each on cost me less than $2 to make!

Just wanted to take a moment to wish my little man a


  You are my gentle soul Austin James.  I am so very happy that God chose me to be your Momma!  I am proud of everything you have ever done and will do.  You are certainly "Awesome"!

I will be linking up this week to some fab parties.  If they are not listed below, please check my sidebar.  I am trying to list each party linked to at the end of each post, but just in case...You are all listed over on the sidebar too!  Luv you all and appreciate the party invites!

Happy Birthday Austin. Um could you please mail me a couple of those! I keep telling my son I'm going to get his teachers present done. I started but life keeps getting in my way. Like laundry and dishes both of which I should get back to.

Now this is a fabulous project! My kids are all grown and, I have to say, I'm glad we didn't do teacher gifts when they were small. 3 boys? I'd still be making them!
