Get Creative with a Homemade Gift Basket
This week my kids all wanted to make something special for their teachers. I see no problem with that, but I didn’t want to simply go and buy a gift certificate to somewhere. I wanted to help them create something. The girls decided on little gift baskets for their teachers. Sweet right?
I’ll admit I had to try out the hot chocolate so this was a great opportunity and figured we could put some of those in the baskets as well. This is a beautiful gift plus it give the teacher quite a few different things. Candles! Candy Canes! Hot Chocolate, a mug, etc.
I told the girls they had to picture in their head what they wanted to get:
Items for Gift Baskets
– Candy Canes
– hot cocoa
Those were just the beginning of their lists, they also had Santa, toys, music, etc. Once we got to the store we narrowed some things down and added others. In the end we felt we did some really good shopping, once at home the girls popped in a movie when daddy got home and the entire family watched “Back to the Future” and drank hot chocolate. We had to test the product before giving it to the teachers right? I mean we didn’t want to give them something bad. Everyone agreed it was good (well everyone but hubby but he is picky and like things super sweet).
How do you drink your hot chocolate? The girls and I came up with a bunch of ways.
Hot Chocolate Homemade Gift Baskets Might include:
-with a candy cane stirring stick
-sprinkled with cinnamon
Have you made a gift basket or something like this for a teacher/adult before?
