First Day of School: Gift Baskets that Teachers will Love

Teaching is one of the most under-appreciated jobs today. They shape the future of the generation and receive very little in return. To show your support for the people that care for your little devils, present them with a gift basket at the beginning or the end of the school year.

The beginning of the year is a stressful time for teachers especially if they’re about to teach small children. First time students always have jitters and can cause some trouble for the teacher. Presenting a gift basket is a great way of familiarizing your child with the teacher and vice versa. Kicking off any relationship with a positive start is a good way to ensure that your child will have a great year ahead.

The end of the year naturally warrants a gift for the teacher. They have put in a lot of hard work and dedication to teach your child and make them better human beings.

The Swiss Army Knife– The teacher is no less than a soldier who needs a million supplies for their classroom. The Swiss army knife gift basket should include all kinds of arts and craft supplies that the teacher will need. Make sure to equip them with files, folders, notebooks, markers, paints, boxed crayons, scissors and glue. Don’t just make it all boring school supplies though. Make sure to put in some edible items that you know the teacher will love. YOU can never go wrong with chocolates.

Baked items – Cupcakes and cookies are loved by everyone. Teachers will be especially thrilled to receive freshly baked goodies that come in gourmet baskets. In fact you can put in custom made cookies with designs on them. There are some really beautiful designer cookies available. The best ones are those with school themed illustrations on them. To make the item more personal however, make sure to put a thank you note in there to show you really appreciate their efforts.

Flowers and chocolates – Everyone loves receiving flower and chocolate. These two items are immediate mood lifters and can really show your appreciation for the teacher at the end of the school year. Nothing is better than seeing one of your favorite Godiva baskets on your desk when coming into the classroom.

Make sure you find out whether the teacher is allergic to pollen or certain flowers before you give them though. In case of chocolates, find out about any potential nut allergies. If you’re unsure, go for full milk or dark chocolates.
