Thank you to Bic for providing the awesome school supplies for my Teacher Appreciation Baskets.
If you are looking for an item to give to your child’s teacher for the new school year, or are already brainstorming for next year’s Teacher Appreciation Day, then you will want to check out this Easy Gift Basket.
It features items that a teacher can use in the classroom, along with goodies that can be used to recharge his or her energy during the day. I ended up making 2 of these for my kid’s teachers.
If you would like to recreate this basket, this is what you will need:
Bic Pen Products (See details below)
Travel Coffee Mug
Printer with Hard Stock Paper
(FYI, I got most of the items to fill the basket from a Dollar Store, the Tea was BOGO at Publix, and you can find these Bic products at retailers nationwide.)
Simply start with tissue paper in the bottom of the plastic tote. Then arrange all the items inside. I suggest tallest in the back and shortest in the front.
I actually added in an extra coffee mug for the classroom assistant.
Then, type out the saying.
Ours was, “A Box of TREATS for a Teacher that is NEAT!!! With supplies for your class and snacks for your break, we look forward to learning, because we know you are GREAT!”
Print this out on hard stock paper and cut it out.
Finally, punch a hole on the side of the note and attach it to the tote with a piece of ribbon.
