Teacher Appreciation Week is the first full week in May. Through all of April I am excited to share some amazing ideas from some of the most wonderful bloggers for my Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas series! It’s a great month! You will be totally prepared with ideas to thank your teachers!

Hey there Skip to my Lou readers! Brooke here from All Things Thrifty! Isn’t this the best series? I just love seeing what fun things people come up with! And it is always so refreshing to have an original and creative gift to give that special teacher in your life!

So this year we had a MALE teacher. We have never had one before but let me just tell you, my daughter has loved it! With that in mind, I created this fun gift geared towards the manly educators in your life!

This was so easy and I got everything I needed right at our local Walmart. In the garden section, they have a BBQ aisle that had a ton of fun things to chose from that were only $1. {When you have 3 kids in school like me, you gotta get thrifty! 😉 }



-Grab a few of your favorite BBQ must haves and throw them in a cute container {mine is from HomeGoods}…


-Add a manly bow… {Ha!} I used some left over rope and wrapped it a few times.

Hope you enjoy!
