“Extra” Fun Back to School Gift Idea

I know most people are a little bummed about the fact that summer is just about over and school will be starting soon.  I however, could not be more thrilled that summer is winding down.  The 100+ degree weather in Phoenix and I just do not mix.  Please let the cooler weather get here as soon as possible!  I do find it crazy that the school year is beginning soon (some have started already!) and they seem to start earlier and earlier every year.  I know back to school is a busy time for lots of people so I wanted to put together one gift idea that is quick, easy, and something that is actually useful for the teacher as well.  It is a gift basket with “extra” supplies for an “extra” good year!

Extra Supplies Back to School Gift Basket with FREE printable tagSchool budgets are tighter and tighter and teachers are using more of their own money to buy school supplies.  I hit up the sales and managed to pick up quite a few items for pretty cheap.  You can include basically anything that fits in school supplies.  Paper, glue sticks, scissors, paper clips, pens, pencils, markers, rulers, staples, post-it notes, crayons, rubber bands, erasers, etc.  Anything!  It would also be cute to include a package of Extra gum as well.

    As a former teacher I would love this gift. I think I spent more of my paycheck then I kept! Great idea!

    I take it this is your first summer here???? I do not mean to burst your bubble but it is really hot until the end of September and some years half way into October….but at least in October the night are nice…..
    I have lived here minus a couple of years since I was 15, came from the midwest….I am 61 now….so if you need to lament about the weather I am here! Your site is just wonderful!!!!!! You will love the winters though…:)

      Hi Sandy! I grew up in Arizona but I was up in the mountains where it is much cooler and yes, this is my first summer living in Phoenix. I am also one of those weird people who LOVE the snow so I will definitely be missing it come winter. Although it will be nice to not worry about shoveling out my car!
