So we would all love to be able to get our children’s teachers a gift at the end of the year, but lets face it when you have more than one child or more than one teacher it gets expensive. And if your like me you want your gift to mean something not just a flower or another keepsake to collect dust on a shelf. I found the cutest idea for a gift for my daughters teacher this year and cost me right at $10!!!!!!!
Our theme….. “Orange you glad it’s summer”
Everything came from the dollar store except for the towel!!!! How great is that!! I Found the image and colored that in real quick after I printed it out and then had Bailey make a card with it.
So what is in the basket:
A cute little orange basket
Somme peach sour punch bites
Veggie straws ( because the packaging was mostly orange )
A cute book
A cute orange glass
A cute towel ( I swear they had every color BUT orange, so this one is yellow with orange stitching)
An Orange pinwheel
Not in the picture was a bottle of Lavender bath salts to soak in
Everything but the Towel and soak was from the dollar store. I found the towel at Walmart and I had everything to make the soak on hand.
It was a hit, her teacher loved it!!!
I was also a parent volunteer in the classroom and spent a lot of time with the kiddos doing reading and math centers so I made a little something for the kiddos.
Quick easy and they loved it and so did the teachers!
