Back to School Gifts

Gift baskets are a wonderful back to school surprise for both children and teachers. Take some time to get creative with your gift baskets and make sure to add your own personal touch to it.

Stock a basket with basic back to school supplies such as:

~Sticky Notes
~Favorite treats

Remember that going back to school is an exciting and often scary experience for kids. Help them with their adjustment by giving them something to look forward to.

Personalize a special treat for your child by adding an encouraging note for that back to school day which will put a smile on your child's face.

Use everyday treats that your child loves such as:


Use funny or encouraging captions for your child's back to school treat. Just seeing a note from mom can be enough to help your child get through the first day of school jitters.

Be adventurous with your child's back to school treat. Use paper bags, cute cups, old repainted tins to make your child's gift unique and exciting.

Use special candy treats to brighten up your child's day:

~Kit Kats
~Jolly Ranchers
~Gummy Worms

Make sure that your child is the one who goes off to school with good feelings and the assurance that they are going to do well. Many children are afraid of making new friends or being in a new class, prepare your child for the step ahead and give them something to be excited about.
