It’s that time of the year when everyone’s posting their 30 days of thankful Facebook posts and there’s thankfulness in the air. Turkey and mashed potatoes will soon be filling our plates and we’ll be surrounding by friends and family for Thanksgiving. Can I just tell you how much I love this time of year? In all seriousness! I know that we should be thankful every day of the year, but the fact that the month of November is centered around really remembering to be thankful for all the little things and all the people in our lives is just magical to me. It’s also time to give extra thanks to those we don’t necessarily remember to thank throughout the year!
That being said, I thought it would be fun to put together a little “Thankful Teacher Basket” for Alea’s teachers at preschool. I can’t imagine the amount of crazy they endure on a day-to-day basis taking care and teaching a room full of four-year-olds. I mean seriously… can you even imagine?
We decided to treat the teachers in our life with a little extra special “thank you” gift this year and make them adorable Extra Special Thank You baskets. What do you think of them?
What We Included:
001. Extra gum — because it wouldn’t be Extra Special if you didn’t include Extra!
002. Lip Balm
003. Post-It notes
004. Colorful pens
005. Travel-sized lotion
006. Travel-sized Kleenexes
007. A small notebook
I love how easy little gift baskets like these are to make. You can add in all of your favorite products and they don’t have to cost you a whole lot of money. The extra thought that goes into them is what makes them such a sweet little gift. You can add all things to your gift baskets to customize them to the recipient as well. Is your child’s teacher a coffee lover? Then you could add some k-cups or a gift card to the local coffee shop! Do they love to do craft projects? Maybe a ball of yarn or scrap-booking supplies would be more their thing! The possibilities are truly endless!
Alea’s so very excited to bring her her teachers Miss Dawn and Miss Lynne their “Extra Special Thank You” baskets! She was so proud of our handwork putting them together and immediately wanted to drive to preschool and bring them to her teachers. The only problem? It was Saturday! Silly little girl!
How do you thank your kids’ teachers this time of year?
