Thank You "Snow" Much Gift Basket w/FREE gift tag

I wanted to get a gift for all the teachers that let me come in to volunteer and take photos/videos for my blog. I know they love when I come in and give them free activities and help their students get some small group time, but I appreciate it just as much. Now that I'm not in the classroom anymore, this is a way for me to get my kid and teaching fix and help students that need a little extra boost.

I came across an idea on Pinterest, but wanted to change it up a bit. I decided to do a snow themed gift basket with some things that can help them relax over their Christmas break. To start, I was going to make some jars filled with white chocolate pretzels, mini Kit Kats, and yogurt raisins and turn them into snowman. I found these mason jars at Target and then got the blue ribbon and buttons at Hobby Lobby.
The jars came with the labels and ribbon for only $4, but since I was going for a snow theme, I decided to change out the ribbon to blue. I added the buttons with some glue dots. I think it might look a bit better with all one type of candy/food, but oh well! This alone would be a very cheap and great gift, however I wanted to add a bit more. 
Here are the rest of the items that will go in the basket. I found this adorable snowman mug at Hobby Lobby for 50% off for $5 and the blanket came from Wal-Mart and was about $5 too. 
I found this basket at the Dollar Tree, added all of the gifts, and made up a cute little gift tag that says: Thank You "Snow" Much! The whole basket cost about $20.
