Teacher Gift Basket Printables

I’m always blown away over how much time and energy teachers put into their jobs. It’s incredible to see them continuing to work, even when the school day is over and on the weekends. Because we love teachers so much, we created this clever Teacher Support and Maintenance Kit to help teachers laugh, feel appreciated, and give them a little recharge when they need it most. 😉


  • Teacher Gift Basket Printables (download here)
  • scissors
  • tape
  • supplies to that go along with our creative tags (ideas below)
  • bucket, basket, or caddy


  1. First, print and cut out all the printables you want to use.
  2. Attach them with some tape to the individual items.
  3. Arrange them into a bucket, basket, or caddy.
  4. Make a teacher’s day!

Here’s what we used in our gift basket to go along with the darling tags –

close up of socks and straws

fun socks || paper straws || Nightly Calm tea

Some other ideas could be a scarf, suckers, massage gift card.

These are pretty standard, but another idea to “hold in together” could be washi tape.

close up of sharpie markers

Other ideas: ice cube tray || any color of permanent markers || anything stretchy. 😉

close up of clothes pins and white out

Other ideas: cute washi tape || push pins || magnets.

We’re in love with how these turned out! Probably one of our favorite teacher survival-type kits ever. 😉

In addition to everything you see here, we’ve also included blank tags so you can write your own clever saying! We’d LOVE to hear what you come up with- let us know in the comments below!

  1. this is such a fabulous idea…the complete simplicity of it makes it genius!….my senior’s stat’s class teacher is much appreciated, and i think this would be a funny “extra gift”.

  2. This is super cute-and easy to do. Some of the Teacher appreciation gifts I’ve seen on the web this last week have been gorgeous-but honestly way more time then I’ll ever be able to commit. This is sweet and actually DOABLE.
