I am excited to be a part of Cindy’s fun Teacher Appreciation Idea Series. I love teachers! We even have one in the family now. My oldest daughter is just completing her first year of teaching. I think she now has a better appreciation for the teachers she had growing up!!

Teacher Appreciation Gift Idea

When Cindy invited me to be part of the series I put a message out on Facebook to all of my teacher friends and I asked them what their favorite teacher appreciation gift was. One of them mentioned that one of the best gifts she ever received was a Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory gift card. I love that place too and my favorite thing there is the Apple Pie Caramel Apple. I decided that would be a perfect gift for a teacher. What teacher doesn’t love an apple, especially when it is covered in caramel, white chocolate and cinnamon sugar? Yum.

I added a fun little printable tag letting the teacher know that A is not just for apple but it is for Awesome too and they are pretty awesome.

The best part about this gift is how easy it is to put together. I just purchased my apples, but them in a cellophane bag I picked up at the craft store and then added some red ribbon and the tag.  E is for Easy!

Now of course you could always make your own caramel apples if you felt so inclined, I have a great recipe and tutorial for you on my blog Your Homebased Mom.  I’d love for you to come over for a visit.  I kind of like caramel apples and even have a second tutorial where I make the caramel from scratch!
