I wanted to give N2's teachers something small to begin the school year and I found some great ideas on Pinterest (I'm loving the phrases with colors such as "Orange you glad it's summer" and "We're tickled pink to have you as a teacher") and I finally settled on doing a bright themed basket. Neon is in this year so I was able to find so many bright things. I made tags that said "Looking forward to a bright school year." I'm intending to make a smaller version of this basket for the teacher I am mentoring. You could spend whatever you wanted on this gift. I ended up buying things at Walgreens, Target and Wal-Mart but I probably could have gotten everything at Wal-Mart if I had gone there first.
