Every year one of our traditions is to go drive around and look at Christmas lights. There are a few neighborhoods we frequent that always have a big spectacle. We get the whole family in the car including the dog, grab some hot chocolate and go for a drive.
This year I thought it would be fun to put together a little scavenger hunt to get the kids involved and make it into a game.
We drove around until we crossed everything off on our list.
So here’s your cue to go check out some lights and have a Christmas light scavenger hunt with the whole family.
Print up these fun “Drink Up Witches – You’ve been boozed” tags for your friends and surprise them with some treats at their doorstep.
A few years ago, I shared my “You’ve been boo’ed!” printable and boo bags that I had fun leaving for neighbors and friends in the weeks leading up to Halloween. All of the little ones loved it! But who says Halloween is just for the kids? These Drink Up Witches-You’ve been boozed printable wine tags are the perfect way to “Booze” your adult friends and neighbors for Halloween.
Simply print up the tag, tie to your favorite bottle of wine or liquor and top with a cute witch hat! Leave at your friends doorstep.

Teachers will love what’s inside basket! This end of the year teacher gift idea is easy to put together and comes with a free printable too! Because by the end of the year, teachers deserve all the wine.
I can’t believe it’s already almost the end of the school year. Our teachers deserve to be spoiled for all the extra hard work they put in. Honestly, our oldest graduates kindergarten this year and his teacher has been fantastic! We could not have asked for a better experience. So I wanted to put something special together for her to celebrate the end of a great year and kick off summer. This end of the year teacher gift idea is the perfect way to show your appreciation for all they do. After all “apples for the teacher used to be just fine, but by June, they deserve some wine!”
To make this you will need:
print out of my free printable, which I have linked below.
Once you have printed out your tag, you will need to cut it out.
Then using a hole puncher, I punched a hole in the corner of the tag and slipped some twine through with a ribbon, tying the ribbon around the neck of the wine bottle.
Next it’s time to fill your basket.
What to include in your End of the Year Gift Basket Idea for the Teacher
The beauty of this gift basket is that it can be completely customized! You can do a fun summer themed basket, coffee, chocolate, honestly, whatever your teacher likes! (But honestly, what teacher doesn’t love wine?)
Here are some ideas of what to include in your basket:
Best teacher because book (For this part, I gave each student in the class. two pieces of paper out of the book and had them write what they loved about their teacher. Then had them send back to me so that I could compile them all in the book to give the teacher. Just a little something to personalize it)
You will want to add some filler to your basket. You can use whatever you like but here are some that I like to use:
Then you will want to add your items to the baskets in an aesthetically pleasing way. I like to add the taller items in the back. Complete with some ribbon for a special touch.
And just like that you have the perfect end of the year teacher gift!

We recently had new neighbors move in next door and I wanted to bring over something to welcome them to the neighborhood. I think it’s worth noting when you’re putting together a housewarming gift, it doesn’t need to be expensive. Something homemade or specially wrapped I think feels like you put more time and care into it and feels special. I’m showing you how to create a thoughtful housewarming gift.

How to create a thoughtful housewarming gift
1.) Start with your vessel
I think baskets or decorative trays are a great place to start and nice way to deliver your gift.
I found a similar one to the one I used at Target.
