End of the year teacher gift idea and free printable

Basket with wine bottle, wine chiller, wine tote, best teacher ever book and an apple with tag that says "apples are fine but by June you deserve some wine"

This post contains affiliate links

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:

  • a basket
  • print out of my free printable (Note – you must be a blog subscriber to get access to the printable library)
  • cardstock or paper
  • scissors
  • wine
  • ribbon
  • hole punch
  • filler for your basket
  • basket items (I’m sharing some ideas below)

Here is the printable tag. Click here to go to the printable library to download and print out your own tags!  (Password will be in your welcome email)

Tag with an apple that says "Best teacher ever" and "apples for the teacher used to be just fine but by June you deserve some wine"

If you are not already a subscriber, sign up now 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:

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:

gold and white crinkle paper shred for basket filler tan brown crinkle paper basket filler

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.

 

2.) A baked good

Something freshly baked is always a nice touch. I made chocolate chip cookies, wrapped them in parchment paper and tied with twine. (My homemade banana bread or Joanna Gaines’ lemon poppyseed bread is also a favorite).

3.) Something decorative

I made a cute set of stamped books that says “Home Sweet Home” for our neighbors to display in their home.

4.) Fresh flowers

I added some fresh cut blooms from the garden and made a cute little printable card.

Summer Reading List 2021

2021 summer reading list
This post contains affiliate links meaning I make a small commission

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.

Scroll to the bottom to download my free summer reading list printable with my recommendations.
