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!
School 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.
This is a gift that is easy to create based on your budget, you can make it with just a few supplies or put together a large basket. The Dollar Tree has great containers that are perfect for just this type of present. Add the printable tag and you are all set!
