Udderly Smooth Educator Gifts. I was recently send a box of Udderly Smooth goodies, and asked to share them with some of my favorite teachers. The timing could not have been any more perfect, as my boys are all entering into Florida State Testing “season”. (The tests are not my favorite thing, and they take entirely too much time away from learning, IMO, but that is a topic for another time and place) I know these tests are extremely stressful for my boys, but they are also very stressful for the teachers. Their jobs are tied to the test scores…and any good teacher feels her students’ stress, and the administration’s stress. Udderly Smooth really lends itself well to a fun gift basket with punny tags. I knew right away I would make a cow themed gift box for my boys’ teachers.
The first thing I did was decide how I wanted to package the gifts. I love wooden boxes…all of them, the older the better. But, I am also on a time crunch, so I went to Michael’s and purchased a pre-made wooden box. With the help of my Cricut and my friend Nook and Cranny, I painted Dairy Farm on the front of the boxes with DecoArt Paints. I made a vinyl stencil with the Cricut, and lightly painted in the letters and the milk jar. Then, once it was dry, I gently sanded the box to distress it some.
Once the boxes were ready, I filled the bottoms with tissue paper, and some natural crinkle paper, then I added all the goodies.
Each box had a variety of Udderly Smooth lotions and creams. I want to take a moment and tell you how wonderful these lotions are…literally every time I have seen my boys’ teachers since I gave them the gifts, they have shared how much they love the lotion. You can buy it at CVS for just a few dollars. And, Udderly Smooth is a family owned and run business. I love being able to support real people when I make my purchases.
I added a Chick Fil A gift card (I am on the Chick Fil A Mom’s Panel, and I admit that I visit my local stores a lot more than I probably should), some Cow Tales caramel cream candies, and a glass milk jar with a bouquet of flowers in it. Udderly Smooth sent me a fun cow coffee mug, so one box got that, and another got a small stuffed cow. I also added a small gift tag that I made and had the kids sign. The tags are available below.
I mentioned before that it was testing season for my boys and their teachers, but one of my sons’ teachers also teaches STEM to a group of 3-5th graders after school. I brought her her box after STEM on the first day of testing. She was literally moved to tears. It was such a small gesture, and it meant so much to her. My other son’s teacher was also thrilled to receive the gift box. He mentioned he has chronically dry skin, and the lotions were some of the best he has ever used.
