Put together a Halloween gift basket

To thank a teacher for all their hard work, consider putting together a gift basket for them. Include a gift and a few of yummy halloween treats in a container they can use again, possibly in their classroom. Next, add some fun Halloween decorations like plastic spiders or fake spider webs to the basket. 

Then, to personalize your gift basket, you can include a nice card or use these free printable tags. This is the perfect way to let your favorite teacher know you were thinking of them. 

Happy Halloween!
