Teacher Appreciation Gifts

Can you believe summer is right around the corner?? Where did this year go?

I came up with this teacher appreciation gift basket idea while listening to my 8 year old tell that orange/banana knock-knock joke- you know the one, right? (Please don’t make me repeat it- we will be here all day!)

With this idea in mind, I went to the dollar store and to Walmart in search of anything orange my kid’s teachers would enjoy – candies, treats, a beach towel, sunscreen, gift cards etc. I love how it turned out!

You don’t even have to go all out with a large gift basket. You can even do smaller and much more simpler things like these:

  • Orange tumbler filled with orange candies & an Amazon gift card
  • Magazine with orange candle and nail polish
  • Orange bowl filled with orange treats
  • Orange beach towel and sunscreen

I love how versatile the contents of this gift can be- keep it simple or go all out!
