Hi guys! I am Stephanie from Somewhat Simple and I am excited to share with you a fun (but EASY!) Teacher Appreciation Gift Basket— with a free printable gift tag!

I came up with 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!)

I hit the dollar store and Walmart in search of anything orange I think my kid’s teachers would enjoy, and here are several variations I came up with:

  1. Karen, I have contacted the blogger and hoping we can get it fixed. So sorry!

  2. bummer, link for the tag doesn’t work and can’t find it on either site 🙁

  3. Joyce,
    I think a BBQ themed basket would be perfect for a male teacher. Include some metal tongs, dry rubs, tasty bottles of bbq sauce, wooden or metal skewers, red and white checkered table clothes and plates, etc. Most of these items can even be found at the dollar store, and with summer around the corner grilling out is surely in order.

  4. I love these teacher gift ideas, but both my (elementary school) girls have male teachers this year. Do you have any ideas that are a bit more “masculine”?
