Its almost the end of the school year for my kids. They get out of school on Wed May 23rd. I can't believe I will have a 1st and 4th grader!! Where did the time go?!
I wanted to do something special for the teachers but didn't want to give them the same old stuff I normally give them. So I decided to browse pinterest and asked for some suggestions on facebook. Someone mentioned that they did a berry basket. I thought it was a cute idea!
I tried to find some containers the strawberries came in, but couldn't find any without purchasing the strawberries themselves. I didn't want to purchase some strawberries because I had already bought 4 gallons of strawberries at a local farm. So I went by goodwill and picked up some baskets for .77 cents each.
I filled it with Bath and Body works strawberry hand soap, hand sanitizer and a car freshener. I then went to the store and purchased some gum and pop rocks in strawberry flavor. There is a lot of other things you can put in this basket going with this theme. candles, drink mixes, koolaid, etc. Whatever you can think of.
I had some leftover ribbons from a previous project so I just wrapped it around the handles and made a bow on both sides. Then I crumbled up an white tissue paper for the bottom and put the stuff in it. Then I printed out some notes here. I then taped it to a kabob stick and stuck it in the basket. I thought it was a cute idea and the teachers all loved it!
Tell me, what are some of your ideas for teacher gifts??
