Back To School: Essential Gifts For The Teacher You Love

Gifts for teachers are something parents usually think about at the end of the school year. In 2020, the school year ended abruptly and teacher gifts were the last thing on anyone’s mind. As families get ready to go back to school, parents are feeling a lot of gratitude to the teacher who will be teaching their children whether it is in the classroom or virtually.  At The Basketry, we have an exceptional selection of essential gifts for the teacher you love as they venture into the “new normal” of teaching. 

2020 Survival Prayer Candle

The Basketry 2020 Survival Prayer Candle

This amazing candle from Mose Mary and Me is a gift that gives twice. $5 from every sale goes to Feed New Orleans Second Line and it will help your favorite teacher to survive whatever is thrown at them. With this year, there is no telling what that could be and the candle also includes a humorous sentiment.


Geode Bath Bombs
