Teacher Gift

Boogs is in 1st grade. We decided to do the same type of teacher gift this year that we did for his kindergarten teacher last year.
12 Days Until Christmas Break Gift Basket
At Boogs' school, the teachers are asked to fill out a "favorites" page at the beginning of the year. We used that page to help us pick out what to put in Ms. D's basket. Then, Boogs helped me wrap everything.  

A note on the baskets said, "It is not quite time for the 12 days of Christmas, but it is time for the 12 Days Until Christmas Break Countdown. To help you make it through the long last days until the holiday break, we put together a little basket of treats. You can open them all at once or pull one out each day until the break begins. Thank you for all you do to make your classroom a special place for your students."

Here is what is inside:

* Colorful binder clips
* Butterfingers candy bar
* Chinese Checkers game for the classroom
* Stickers for classroom
* M&Ms
* Pen & Notebook with Ms. D's initial on them
* Christmas socks
* Christmas themed scrapbooking stickers
* Lotion
* Fold-out photo album 
* Package of colored Sharpies
* Starbucks Gift Card  

One of the items in the basket has a tag on it that says "Open Me Last". We put a note in there which revealed that the basket was from Boogs.

Last year, the kids had fun trying to trick their teacher into believing the basket came from different people each day.
