Holiday Teacher Gifts Featuring Walmart Photo

27 November 2015

With December on the horizon, it's time to start thinking about Christmas gifts and teachers are always pretty high on our list. If you're anything like me, you scour Pinterest for clever ideas, only to fall back on the tried-and-true gift certificate days before the class party. This year I am taking all of the guesswork out of the equation for you and I'm so excited to share these Holiday Teacher Gifts Featuring Walmart Photo products.

My favorite Walmart Photo product is this 14 ounce Collage Tumbler, available online or in-store at the photo center kiosk. Marked down to only $10 through January 5, 2016, this is the perfect gift for your favorite teacher. Since we love to personalize our gifts around here, we challenged ourselves to come up with three distinct gift packages for the girls' teachers, using the same product in each.

This particular tumbler allows for five photographs and your choice of background color. The girls and I brainstormed a few fun quotes that were appropriate for their teachers and I created a simple graphic for the largest spot in the template. You can download one of four graphics here, formatted to fit the tumbler perfectly! The remaining spots were filled with black and white photographs taken on field trips and in the classroom earlier in the year.

First up was Sophie's kindergarten teacher. Sophie is a huge fan of nail polish and lip balm and since she insists her teacher's favorite color is blue, she picked these items to add to her gift.

For Ella's math teacher, we couldn't resist a little equation humor. She picked out highlighters, sticky notes and a colorful pack of pens for her gift, but just about any fun school supplies would do!

For our last bucket, we were shopping for a coffee lover and we all know that Starbucks reigns supreme! We picked up peppermint sticks, hot cocoa mix and a small denomination gift card to round out our final gift.

We're gifting the same item to each of our teachers, but armed with a quick trip to Walmart for a few extra supplies, we managed to pull off three completely different gifts.

With over 3,500 Walmart Photo locations nationwide and the option to order online any time of the day, you have no excuses not to arrive to the party with a perfect gift in-hand. Running late? Many products are available for free, same day pick-up in store or you can snag free shipping on all gifts purchased through December 30!

I always thank God for you because of His grace given you in Christ Jesus. 
For in Him you have been enriched in every way - in all your speaking and in all your knowledge.

Rocksbox + a Coupon Code

Rocks Box Wolf Jewelry Box 1

Do you remember way back in September when I shared this Wish List as a part of Blogtember? And I gushed and gushed about how amazing this jewelry box was? Well imagine my surprise when it showed up on my doorstep on the afternoon of my birthday?! I didn't ask for it, I would have never bought it for myself and I honestly never expected to have one, but my aunt knew how much I loved hers and so she sent me a surprise in the mail! I wish you could have seen the look on my face when my mom and I unboxed it. As soon as I opened the box (but before any of the packaging had been removed), we both gasped out loud because we knew exactly what it was!

The girls and I spent a few hours on Saturday rounding up jewelry from every dish and bowl in every corner of the house to put it all in one place and finally organize it. I gave some things to the girls, tossed some things that were broken and packed up a few things to donate. I found all kinds of things I had completely forgotten about and had so much fun getting everything sorted and packed away.

Can we talk about how amazing this necklace is? It's by Jenny Bird and it's one of my absolute favorite pieces to wear right now. This is the second Jenny Bird necklace I've sported in the last few months and both of them were because of Rocksbox. I love the mixed metals and the different textures and I am going to be super sad to have to send it back. The $140 price tag is a little outside of my wheelhouse, but thanks to Rocksbox, I can wear it as long as I want before sending it back! I decided it was the perfect piece for Thanksgiving Day, so I'm letting it hang around a few more days.

Rocksbox is a subscription jewelry service and for $19 a month you have access to some of the most beautiful jewelry you've ever seen! There are some amazing designers that would otherwise be outside of my reach, but I can "borrow" them for a low monthly fee. I know it sounds weird to wear someone else's jewelry, but I have been subscribing since summer and I am completely smitten! Each piece is professionally cleaned in between shipments and you are not held responsible for damage or normal wear and tear.

When you sign up for Rocksbox, you'll fill out a style survey and pick out some of your favorite pieces from their website. You are guaranteed to have at least one piece you've selected in each box! You'll get a box with three hand-selected pieces for you to wear as long as you want. When you send them back, they will automatically choose three additional pieces to send your way. In return you get $10 a month to spend if you choose to purchase anything from your box (I've snagged an inexpensive ring, a pair of gemstone earrings and my first Kendra Scott necklace) and by referring friends you can earn $25 per referral that never expires!

There a couple of pairs of Rocksbox earrings in the photo below! The pair on the top right are by House of Harlow and are tiny little studs with an upper ear cuff on one side. I thought they might be a little edgy for me, but I've worn them a couple of times and loved them. I'll be sending them back after the holiday, but they were fun to try for a few days. The small clear gemstones with the silver bullets are one my favorite keepers. They were in my second box and I knew immediately that I would keep them. They are perfectly sparkly and go with everything! Those ivory filagree earrings and bracelet? Those are vintage and some of my favorite pieces EVER. Josh bought those from an estate sale for my birthday right after we got married and I still love them as much as I did that day. The original owner was a nurse during World War 2 and picked them up overseas!

Now Rocksbox wants to give Y O U the first month free! Sign up for their service and use the coupon code below when you checkout. You'll get to try their subscription service for free for a month -- you can squeeze two boxes in a month if you try and you'll get $10 to spend towards any of the pieces in your box. You can cancel before the end of the month if you don't want to pay for a subscription, but you can share your referral code on social media and earn $25 per friend toward next months box!

I received a free subscription to Rocksbox's subscription service in exchange for this post and social media mentions, but I absolutely ADORE this service and all opinions are my own!
