I know teacher appreciation week *JUST* ended, but this is the last week of preschool for my four year old, and so we are prepping end of year teacher gifts.
If this seems like a familiar gift, that is because it is. We previously put together a “School's Out for Summer” gift basket with very similar items, but this year since I have my Silhouette, I kicked it up a notch.
The first thing I did was gathered up all things ’summer’ related with my budget of $20.
Here is a breakdown of what is in the basket, and where I got it:
Beach Towel ($6 - Big Lots)
Chocolate Bar ($2 - Big Lots)
Flip Flops ($1 - Dollar Store)
Sunscreen ($1 - Dollar Store)
Sports Towel ($1 - Dollar Store)
Aloe Vera Gel ($1 - Dollar Store)
Starbucks Iced Coffee ($1 - Costco)
Magazine ($3 - Costco)
Plastic tub ($4.79, 40% off since it was a spring color - Hobby Lobby)
Insulated Tumbler ($1 - Dollar Store) I personalized it with some word art made of up the children’s names. I will have a tutorial on that soon.
Total Cost: $19.79
Next we decided to monogram the tub:
My four year old picked out the font and the scroll work. She loves watching the machine cut the vinyl:
We transferred the monogram using dollar store clear contact paper (cheaper than transfer paper.)
And the finished product:
Then we just put all the stuff inside:
We actually made 2 baskets since she has two teachers:
The magazines are different because the teachers have different interests, and of course the monograms:
We are definitely ready for summer!
