Are you ready for your kids to head back to school? Make this back to school teacher’s gift basket with practical items, such as Tom’s of Maine® Long Lasting Deodorant and Tom’s of Maine® Rapid Relief Sensitive Toothpaste, that teachers will enjoy.
We have a little over a month before we head back to school. As much as I love the long, lazy days of summer, part of me craves the routine of the school year. Something tells me that teachers feel the same way. This year, I want to help make back to school even more enjoyable for the special teachers in our lives by making a cute teacher gift basket that contains useful items they will enjoy.
I started with a small wooden box with rope handles. I chose this box to avoid having to use a paper filler to add texture and depth to the teacher gift basket. The combination of wood and rope adds visual detail without the waste of shredded paper!
Every teacher needs a fun mug to drink their morning coffee or tea. The message on this mug rings true for me, and I am sure many teachers can relate!
When I saw these owl notecards, I had to include them in the teacher gift basket. Teachers – and owls – are wise! These notecards are perfect for the teacher to send home a quick message letting you know how your child is doing in school. We’re fortunate to have teachers who go the extra mile and send home personal notes a few times a year.
Included in this back to school teacher gift basket are a few personal care items. Tom’s of Maine® natural personal care and oral care products are made with no artificial colors, flavors, fragrances or preservatives, nor are they tested on animals.
I picked up toothpaste and deodorant for the gift basket while shopping at Whole Foods Market. Did you know that your neighborhood Whole Foods Market carries a variety of Tom’s of Maine® products for the entire family?
By choosing Tom’s of Maine® you are helping to create a $1,000,000 fund to help make schools more sustainable through DonorsChoose.org! Teachers submit their requests for classroom supplies and projects through donorschoose.org. Every project submitted is automatically matched by the Tom’s of Maine® Green Your School Fund. The remaining amount can be funded by anyone at any amount they choose, until the full project amount has been reached. Once projects are fully funded, supplies are delivered to straight to schools! This is a wonderful opportunity for teachers to educate their students about green initatives.
You can earn $1 from Ibotta by purchasing your favorite Tom’s of Maine® products at your neighborhood Whole Foods Market. I also love that All Tom’s of Maine® packaging is recyclable through TerraCycle®. Visit www.tomsofmaine.com/terracycle to learn how 10% of profits go to human and environmental goodness.
