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, which I have linked below.
- cardstock or paper
- hole punch
- filler for your basket
- basket items (I’m sharing some ideas below)
Free printable tag
Here is the printable tag. Click here to download and print out your own tags!
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:
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!

There’s something so cozy about a beautiful simmer pot on the stove and the fragrant aromas. Especially in winter time. This DIY simmer pot is a great gift idea for the holidays and super easy to assemble!

What is a stovetop simmer pot?
A simmer pot is a basically a pot of water, fruits, herbs and spices that you simmer throughout the day to fill your home with a nice aroma. Simmer pots are really nice around the holidays with those warm spices but they can be enjoyed all year long. (This cozy coffee simmer pot is my other favorite combo).
In the past I’ve done simmer pots in any old ordinary pot but recently I got this glass pot on Amazon. It’s soooo pretty and I thought it would make a great hostess gift.
What you need to make this DIY Simmer Pot:
- Simmer Pot (linking it here)
- 2 oranges
- 1/2 bag of fresh cranberries
- Dried cloves
- 3 sprigs of fresh rosemary
- 3 cinnamon sticks
- Ribbon or twine
How to make a DIY Simmer Pot Gift
Fill your pot with the oranges, cranberries and sprinkle in some cloves. With a ribbon or some twine, tie together the cinnamon sticks and rosemary and place in the pot. You don’t have to use this pot you can absolutely put together the ingredients and gather in a mason jar as well. Wrap and tie with a ribbon. If you want, you can also add a little tag with the instructions for simmering (listing the instructions below).
Fill a pot with about 3-4 cups of water. Add all ingredients to the pot and allow to simmer. Keep an eye on the water and add more as needed. You can reuse for a few days, just add more water. Enjoy!

These DIY homemade tea bags make the perfect thoughtful, personalized gift idea for Mother’s Day or birthdays. Scroll down to see how I made them. This post contains affiliate links.
I have always appreciated receiving handmade gifts, to me they are more meaningful. Our mom loves tea and growing up we used to do always have tea parties. This year we surprised her and threw our Mother’s Day celebration a few weeks early with a Mother Daughter Tea and these DIY homemade tea bags. She loved them and they looked really cute on the table too!
If you make these, be sure to share a photo and tag me on Instagram @ourtiny_nest so that I can see how they came out! If you’re not following me already, click here to follow me on IG 🙂
You will need:
- Coffee filters
- Loose leaf tea
- Cardstock or printed photos
1.) I started by printing out some of my favorite photos that I wanted to use for the tea bags and cutting them into small squares for the tags. If you’re not going to use pictures, you could also do cardstock and write little personalized messages on them.
2.) Take a coffee filter and scoop 1 1/2 teaspoon of loose leaf tea into the center of the coffee filter.
3.) Bring the edges of the coffee filter up to make it into like a blossom and pinch the center to close it off.
4.) Take a piece of twine and wrap around the part of the coffee filter that you have pinched off and tie closed leaving enough of the twine coming off the tea bag for steeping.
5.) Using a stapler, staple your picture or cardstock to the end of the twine.
We chose to have them all set out on the table. I think they would also be cute made into a basket with a tea canister, a tea cup, some biscotti and maybe some macaroons.
