Teachers will love what’s inside basket! This end of the year teacher gift idea is easy to put together and comes with a free printable too! Because by the end of the year, teachers deserve all the wine.
I can’t believe it’s already almost the end of the school year. Our teachers deserve to be spoiled for all the extra hard work they put in. Honestly, our oldest graduates kindergarten this year and his teacher has been fantastic! We could not have asked for a better experience. So I wanted to put something special together for her to celebrate the end of a great year and kick off summer. This end of the year teacher gift idea is the perfect way to show your appreciation for all they do. After all “apples for the teacher used to be just fine, but by June, they deserve some wine!”
To make this you will need:
print out of my free printable, which I have linked below.
Once you have printed out your tag, you will need to cut it out.
Then using a hole puncher, I punched a hole in the corner of the tag and slipped some twine through with a ribbon, tying the ribbon around the neck of the wine bottle.
Next it’s time to fill your basket.
What to include in your End of the Year Gift Basket Idea for the Teacher
The beauty of this gift basket is that it can be completely customized! You can do a fun summer themed basket, coffee, chocolate, honestly, whatever your teacher likes! (But honestly, what teacher doesn’t love wine?)
Here are some ideas of what to include in your basket:
Best teacher because book (For this part, I gave each student in the class. two pieces of paper out of the book and had them write what they loved about their teacher. Then had them send back to me so that I could compile them all in the book to give the teacher. Just a little something to personalize it)
You will want to add some filler to your basket. You can use whatever you like but here are some that I like to use:
Then you will want to add your items to the baskets in an aesthetically pleasing way. I like to add the taller items in the back. Complete with some ribbon for a special touch.
And just like that you have the perfect end of the year teacher gift!

We recently had new neighbors move in next door and I wanted to bring over something to welcome them to the neighborhood. I think it’s worth noting when you’re putting together a housewarming gift, it doesn’t need to be expensive. Something homemade or specially wrapped I think feels like you put more time and care into it and feels special. I’m showing you how to create a thoughtful housewarming gift.
And scroll down for my free printable to add to your housewarming gift!
How to create a thoughtful housewarming gift
1.) Start with your vessel
I think baskets or decorative trays are a great place to start and nice way to deliver your gift.
I found a similar one to the one I used at Target.

One of the things on my summer bucket list is to read more books. My family used to make fun of me because on my summer vacations I’d often go to the library or Barnes and Noble to get some books to read over the summer while most kids did all they could to avoid reading. It’s always been one of my favorite escapes. I’m sharing my Summer Reading List for 2021 below.
And all of the books are linked on Amazon so you can download to your kindle or purchase the actual book if you still like flipping through pages.

I read all of Judy Blume’s books as a teenager. I read this one back in college and remember it being really good. It’s a story about two girls who are friends during the summer on the Vineyard. It’s on my list for this summer to read again.
based on an end of the Summer beach party in Malibu, this book is about dysfunctional family relationships. Many of the reviews on Good Reads say that the characters are extremely well written and will have your emotions all over the place.
Sweet summertime! The days get a little lazier, you stay up a little later, ice cream is perfectly acceptable every night after dinner and dips in the pool count as showering/bathing. There’s so many reasons I love summer. Below I’m sharing some ideas that are on my summer bucket list as well as a free printable Summer Bucket List with ideas to get you started.
My 2021 Summer Bucket List
Berry picking – The boys LOVE berry picking and obviously eating as they go! After strawberry picking, making strawberry shortcake is a must! My favorite version is my strawberry cheesecake trifle. If you’re local, we went strawberry picking at Stanton’s Farm in Selkirk, its a small family owned farm and the strawberries were delish! They will have blueberries in July too!
Camp outside with the kids – put up a tent in the backyard, make some glow jars (you can see my easy DIY here), eat s’mores and tell ghost stories. Rick and Maxwell did this last summer and had a “boys night” and Maxwell still talks about it, he thought it was the greatest thing.
Try an Aperol Spritz – believe it or not I have never had an Aperol Spritz and it sounds like the perfect summer drink. So it’s a goal of mine to try one this summer. My other favorite summer cocktail is my Paloma recipe. You can also check out this list of the best margarita recipes! Make it a goal to tick off every one this summer 🙂
Host a BBQ with friends – after the last year we’ve had, I’m ready to have some friends over, kick back on the deck and get to entertain. If you’re looking for an eye-catching meal idea that is sure to wow, check out my grilled steak charcuterie board.
Make a little road-side farmstand – last year I got into gardening and I would love to have a cute little roadside farmstand with some of my home grown veggies and flowers for people as they drive by. This year may not be anything fancy but I’m determined to give it a shot.
