Teacher Gift #2

Car Kits

Pencil boxes aren't just for their students.  Here's what you will need to create "car kits" for your favorite teachers:

Pencil Box or Large Pencil Pouch

Paint Markers or Stickers-should you choose to personalize the outside as seen above

Suggested items to fill the box with:

sharpie marker
mini notepad, or post it notes
hand lotion
small pack of kleenex
pack of gum or mints
hand sanitizer
envelope (one regular, one legal)
Starbuck gift card
Gas card

The object is to fill the boxes with travel size versions of things they might need on the run.  You can easily find these items in the travel section of your local drug store or Target/Wal-mart.  Then add a few stationary items to the box.  A gift card for coffee and gas is a BONUS!

The boxes also make great gifts for the teen who just got their first car or for the young adult headed off to college.

The "car kits" have been a huge hit with teachers and teens alike.  Moms on the go would love them too!

Love this idea! Your gift recipient can turn into a Macgyver! =) This would be so useful for me cause I never have anything on hand, haha.
