What To Put In A Teacher Sanity Basket

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Wet Ones® Hand Wipes. The opinions and text are all mine. I received free samples of products from Wet Ones®. This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias Inc. and its advertiser. #BTSWithWetOnes #CollectiveBias






It's hard to imagine that school will be back in session soon. Didn't summer break just start? How can it already be ending?

We've spent a lot of times outdoors, taking in the sun, swimming in the pool, exploring the battlefields of Gettysburg, playing games, checking out State Parks...

But now it's almost time to get back to school. I won't lie, I am looking forward to the quiet. Teachers are my heroes, because they get to deal with 20 + kids at once, and they don't complain about it. They're always there with a smile and kind words, even if on the inside they're like, "Help! Send help!"

Well, I try to help when I can. And one way I do this is by handing over a Teacher Sanity Basket on the first day of school. Anyone can do this and I'm told teachers appreciate the gesture. Here's what you can put in a basket:







1. Chocolate. There's nothing like biting in a sweet morsel as chaos looms around you.


2. A gift card to a coffee shop. Caffeine helps. I learn this during the summer as my daughter asks me 134897 questions.


3. A journal to write down thoughts. Writing has always helped me to clear my head.


4. Pens. Everyone always needs pens! Mine always get lost. I imagine this is the same for teachers.


5. Wet Ones® Hand Wipes. 



Look, with all those kids there are bound to be sticky hands. Wet Ones® can help with that. 

I've used Wet Ones® for years. I love that they are gentle on skin and that they are hypoallergenic.




They also clean better than hand sanitizers AND kill 99.99% of germs. It’s why I bring the travel pack with me whenever we go out:






Wet Ones® are America's #1 hand wipe*, and I believe it, which is why I make sure to include them in the Teacher Sanity Basket. 


You can find great savings on Wet Ones® with this Ibotta offer.






Even better, there's a Wet Ones® "Wish I had a Trip to Universal Orlando" sweepstakes included on the Specially Marked packaging featuring two of Universal Orlando Resort’s hit attractions - Shrek 4D and Transformers™: The Ride-3D where you could win a 3-night trip for FOUR to Universal Orlando Resort™, which includes:

--You get to stay on-site at Loews Sapphire Falls Resort--sweet!

--Ground transportation between the airport and the hotel in Orlando, which is a deal, because it can be pricey to get to and from the airport

--Tickets to the Blue Man Group at Universal Studios Florida™--an incredibly exciting show to watch!

  1. Going to share this with my son who is a teacher. Get some ideas from him what he would like to receive in his sanity basket. Like your ideas and starting off with chocolate is always a must.

  3. Sounds like a great gift for teachers.

  4. Chocolate would be my number one on the list as well. Great ideas! We have Wet Ones all over our house, in our car and our travel bag. With little ones they are a life saver.

  5. Chocolate and Coffee Shop gift cards are the perfect gift for a sanity box. These are great ideas. My son is a Jr in HS now, so I don't have to do these, but I'll probably send in GC's once a month for one of the teachers to have :)

  6. I think the teacher should get this once a week LOL. What they have to do with our kids and what they have to put up with I think they deserve a medal!

  7. What a thoughtful idea. I have given teachers gifts and random gifts along the way but a nice lol sanity basket for the beginning of the year is a nice gesture.

    ReplyDelete
  8. What a great idea. My niece is a 4th grad teacher and I'm going to put one of these together for her. I don't have any school age kids but my granddaughters all had a favorite 5th grade teacher who still works at the same school. I bet she would love one, too. Thank you for sharing.

  9. This basket is loaded with great things the teachers will love. The teachers love to receive things like this!

  10. I would add a thermal coffee mug and some sugar-free snacks. Sometimes teachers are rushed to enjoy their own lunch because of interruptions from students and parents and other teachers

  11. I love the idea of a sanity basket for a teacher haha! They are unsung heroes for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  12. It's is weird to think school starts again next week, definitely good luck to the teachers and I am sure the sanity basket will be a big help.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Schools started up around here last week, and my 4 year old's pre-K program started along with his speech therapy. The most requested items I get are tissues and baby wipes to help clean hands since there isn't a sink close to the classroom, so I made sure to bring a bunch by already to start out the year!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I need one of these baskets for myself:) It's a great and clever idea and would be perfect for a nice impromptu teacher appreciation gift.

    ReplyDelete
  15. My wife had been sending teachers end you school gifts, I think that a sanity gift basket at the beginning of the year is better. I am pretty sure the teacher can use the chocolate during the first day is school with all those chaos.

    ReplyDelete
  16. This is so thoughtful! I'd consider putting in some essential calming oils.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I didn't know there was such a thing as Teacher Sanity Basket. But I think it's such a nice gesture. I'd put lots of chocolate on mine!

    ReplyDelete
  18. It is a great way to encourage and support the teachers. Thank you for sharing.

  19. Aw I really love how you have created a 'teacher sanity basket' that is so thoughtful. I really like the sound of using chocolate x

  20. This is such a nice idea for teachers! If I were a teacher I would be so grateful if I got something like this on the first day of school.

  21. This is a great idea for teachers. I always have Wet Ones on hand. I keep some in my car for emergencies.

  22. I love this idea of a sanity basket. I will definitely be using it for my daughter's teachers. Thanks for the idea.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Couldn't agree more on the list! I guess this would typically apply for working girls like me. I would love to have this sanity basket as well. Thanks for the idea! -ANOSA

  24. This is a sweet idea. :) I just handled 27 kids last week as a part time Language teacher for 11 year olds and it really was tough. Gifts from the moms made it better though. :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. I would include a general gift card. Teachers spend so much out of pocket for their classrooms.

    ReplyDelete
  26. As the daughter of two retired teachers I know that this basket would be something that any teacher would appreciate as they jump into a new school year. Wet Ones are a MUST!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Even I had the feel thinking Are the schools open.. Oh why so fast, lol. This basket seems cool enough and Wet ones are worth trying.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I absolutely love the idea of a Teacher Sanity Basket, and my teacher friends would too! When my daughters were in elementary school I would put together baskets of various supplies the teacher would need for her classroom. The donations were always greatly appreciated!

    ReplyDelete
  29. This is fab!!! I don't have kids nor do most of my friends, but I'll have to remember this for when I do - if I ever do..!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Teacher sanity basket sounds like a great idea to appreciate and show our respect for teachers. This basket looks awesome...Thanks for some inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Preparing a teacher sanity basket seems a great gesture to the teachers. They have already been very stressful with the kids and they deserve a treat. Thanks for sharing your great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  32. In my country this is not a usual practice, to give the teachers a sanity basket. It sounds like a great idea though and your suggestions on what to put in it are very good, especially the chocolate and coffee shop gift card.

    ReplyDelete
  33. What an excellent idea about the items in a gift basket. In my country, we do give gift baskets on holidays for teachers but I don't think we give sanity baskets - lol

  34. We love Wet Ones too. I always have some in my purse and in my car. This is a great idea for back to school teacher gifts!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I have never seen Wet Ones in South Africa will sure try them if they ever come.

    ReplyDelete
  36. This is a great idea for teachers and for back-to-school or any other time to show the teachers you're thinking of them.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Teaching is one of the most underrated jobs around. So this sanity basket is right on target. I'm sure any teacher would appreciate receiving one!

    ReplyDelete
  38. This is a sweet gesture for teachers. Yes teacher work hard with all of these personalities and energies so this should lift their spirits.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Bless the teachers in this world, truly they are the BEST! I load them up on whatever they ask for and then some...kleenex is something I just keep sending in all year long box after box after box.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Such a great idea. Both of my kids' teachers are making a wish list next week for us to see what they want. That said, I can't imagine this not going in any kind of donation or gift to the classroom!

    ReplyDelete
  41. The are the nicest things ever. Teachers sometimes go very unnoticed and underappreciated.

    ReplyDelete
  42. As a former teacher, you are right on track! You can never go wrong with coffee and things to help keep hands clean - especially in elementary!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh my that's a very well thought gift for a teacher! We don't do this kind of thing here and I think we should start!!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Asa former teacher and school administrator, I love the idea of a sanity basket and know that it is much needed! Such a thoughtful way to form a relationship with your child's teacher.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I used to be a teacher. And this is such an amazingly cool idea. I am not sure I would have wanted the chocolates based upon personal candy preferences and the fact that I used to get tons of them all year long. But the rest, I remember so many different reasons for why I wanted those things. I am sure your kid's teachers love you.

    ReplyDelete
  46. This is such a cute idea! I'm sure all teachers LOVE getting care packages from students!

    ReplyDelete
  47. That gift basket is so perfect! I want to make one similar for my son's teacher, she would love it. Especially since it can help her keep things clean.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I've never heard of a teacher basket. Is this a new thing? Is giving her an apple not a thing anymore?

    ReplyDelete
  49. The teacher sanity basket is a great gift idea for the teachers. I love the Shrek Wet Ones. Thanks for sharing this awesome gift idea for the teachers.

    ReplyDelete
  50. my mom was a teacher, and this would have been perfect for her! LOVE this idea!

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  52. I rarely give gifts to my teachers, coz it affect show a teachers treats his / her students (thus teacher's pet arise).
    But having a wet wipes anywhere is a must! I always have it in my bags.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Chocolates and coffee are really good gifts for teachers.They work hard and this is a way to thank them.And wet wipes are really helpful for them everywhere...

    ReplyDelete
  54. This is such a great idea! I have never thought about doing this for teachers before, and I love that you call it a sanity basket! This would also be a really great idea for daycare workers, because those little ones are always getting into something to need a wet wipe! I love this, thanks for sharing!
