Gift Basket 4teacher! (aka brown-nosing a little)

by Heather Murphy

Surprise your child’s teacher with a back-to-school kit!

Create a simple, budget-friendly basket with items you can find at your local big-box retailer such as Target, Walmart, a dollar store, or even grocery store. You can fill your basket with personal care items, classroom items, or items you think the teacher would enjoy.

Most importantly, mark each item with a special little meaning, and you’re sure to impress! Let your little one’s teacher know why you chose each item. Keep it fun and simple. The teacher will LOVE it, and your child will get a kick out of gifting it to him/her. Be sure to include your little one by take them along on the shopping trip… (or not!)
