I made this bee-themed gift for my son’s First Grade teacher.
Partly I was inspired to use bees because his teacher has a running bee theme in her classroom (for example, each child has a bee with their name on it on the wall, and if they misbehave they ‘lose a stinger’ or are ‘out of the hive’).
And partly I wanted to go with bees because I found this cute beehived-shaped tealight holder at Target (on clearance in the Dollar Spot area, so you’ll have to hurry if you want one, too). If you can’t find one, a yellow or black gift bag with a bee tag on it would do just fine.
In keeping with the bee theme, I filled it with Burt’s Bees products. I purchased the ‘Head to Toe’ kit at Target for $13. I tied a ribbon around the tealight holder and put as many of the items as I could into the jar. You could add a gift card or any other small item to the jar if you prefer.
I gave it to her with the bee letter that you can DOWNLOAD FOR FREE HERE.
I had my son write his teacher’s name at the top, and sign his name at the bottom. I also added the date in small print.

I think his teacher liked it and I hope you do, too!
