A few months back, we took out a calendar and noticed that Administrative Assistant Day was coming up on April 27th. At the same time, we “googled” gift ideas and really came up dry (other than a traditional gift basket or bouquet of flowers). That’s when we came up with the idea to create a “desk party,” complete with custom wrapped chocolate, tea, and a desk banner. Then, we realized that not only does this gift design work for assistants, but also for your favorite teachers! Some additional pail filler ideas might include small desk accessories, a beautiful new pen, magnets, CD, and gift cards (maybe even to a favorite SPA!). We designed the “Thank You” Printable Collection with a retro typewriter motif and a vivid orange and blue color scheme. Of course, our Nine to Five Nancy persona from the Orange Gift Pail really does the trick in lending us her professional style.
Th entire printable collection along with the ORANGE gift pail kit is available at our NEW Etsy shop for one low price! And, as our way of saying THANK YOU to our subscribers and followers, we’ll be providing a FREE printable to create these cute mini candy bar wrappers later this week!
Here’s a quick look at what’s included in the “Thank You” Printable Collection:
Typewriter Note Card
Convey your thanks with this retro-style typewriter note card (blank inside). Sized to fit the same envelope which is provided in your gift pail kit.
Create custom tea by taking off the existing tag and replacing with a “T-Bag” graphic . . . we used Lipton Tusan Lemon Black Tea (20 pyramid tea bags).
T-time Cello Topper
Package your custom tea in a “T-Time” bag, complete with colorful cello topper. Sized to attach to a 5“ wide treat bag.
Chocolate Lovers Mini Candy Bar Wrappers
Print on copy paper, cut and wrap around miniature Hershey bars (6 styles).
Chocolate Lovers Medium Candy Bar Wrappers
Five styles designed to wrap around 1.55 oz. candy bars (we used Nestle’s Crunch).
Mini Banner ( 2” circles)
Create a festive “desk party” and decorate with a mini “#1 ASSISTANT” banner or a “THANK YOU” banner — perfect to hang on a bulletin board or drape across a computer screen.
Medium Banner (3” circles)
Create a medium banner (”#1 ASSISTANT” or “THANK YOU”) for larger areas such as across a doorway, on a wall or for window decor.
NOTE: The orange retro typewriter mug was created by Circa Ceramics based out of Chicago. You can find this great product plus lots more at their etsy shop!
We hope this collection provides some creative inspiration for your own gift giving. And, be sure to bookmark our NEW Etsy shop – we will be adding more designs in the very near future!
