Thanks to the Walgreens Holiday Gift Guide I was able to get a jump start on working on gift baskets for our school staff this year with some fabulous snack ideas! Last year I got stuck waiting for last minute Christmas gifts for our teachers and I told myself this year I would get started early!! Since all of our teachers (aside from my husband) are females I decided to make them each an indulgent gift basket, and one large basket for our secretary! What says indulgence better to a girl than chocolate and relaxing bath products? I found a TON of options with the Good & Delish brand so I have oodles to choose from!
From jelly beans to tea, coffee, truffles, cookies, chocolate pretzels, sparkling cider and bath salts I knew that this basket would be awesome!!
I bought plenty of extra sweets to make each teacher a nice holiday gift bag which I got on sale at Walgreens too. Since today was the first school day in December, and I know how tough it is to get back into gear and go back to school after Thanksgiving and ride the craziness of the holidays. I wanted to make sure to help boost staff spirit by putting out a small gift baskets of goodies and coffee today to kick start the month of December at our school! There were a ton of great frozen appetizers and delicious ice cream bars and ice cream. But since I live an hour away I was afraid it would all melt in the car otherwise I would have brought those for a lunch treat!
I grabbed some dried fruit for my kids too!!
We were blessed this year to make such a large gift basket for our school staff – hopefully these will give you some great ideas to get for your teachers and co-workers during the holiday season! Prices ranged from anywhere under $2 to about $6 so these delicious treats at Walgreens are definitely affordable!! A small loofah with bath products, some chocolates or holiday cookies, a bag of coffee, or even just a bag of chocolate covered pretzels for the school office – they are all thoughtful gifts!
