My kids like to give their teachers gifts on the first day of school. I like to think of it less as kissing up and more as starting off the year on the right foot. It is best if it can be useful and clever!
I love bright and beautiful school supplies! These beautiful Sharpie markers and highlighters are on sale at Staples right now, while supplies last. So I grabbed a few and came up with a SHARP idea for a teachers gift.
You know how I love themes, right? So after grabbing the Sharpie markers and highlighters, I stocked up on other “sharp” school supplies at Staples.
Like a pencil SHARPener, SHARPENED pencils, SHARP pins and SHARP scissors (not pictured).
And decided to make a “sharp” -themed gift basket for the teacher.
A soda carrier makes a great container for the gift. I used white duct tape to cover up the labels and reinforce the box.
And designed the printable label.
I arranged the sharp supplies in each of the compartments of the container. Here is a quick tip: For the smaller objects, tuck a colorful napkin or tissue paper in the bottom of the compartment, to prop up the objects a bit so they can be more visible.
You can use the Sharpies to write the teacher’s name on the box! And there you have a gift that you know any teacher will appreciate and use!
