Back to School Teacher Gifts

Back to School Teacher Gifts


So… I’m kiddos went back to school today. I know… It’s early, right?!  I put together these  Back to School Teacher Gifts that were under $7 each!

Our children’s teachers spend a lot if time with them throughout the year and I wanted to send them something to reward and encourage them for all the hard word they have done to prepare for our little one’s arrival.

Inexpensive back to school teacher's gifts

I went to the Target One Spot and picked the metal buckets, tags, sticky notes, pencils, and notebook for $1 each. Then I went to Hobby Lobby and got the gold metallic shred and the mustache paper clips. ( Which are my favorite)

I started by putting the notebook on the bottom, followed by the sticky notes and then the pencil. I used a piece of ribbon to tie it tightly together. Then, I added some tissue paper to the bucket and filled it up about halfway up. Next, we added the metallic shred and  the You’re the “WRITE” teacher for me tag. I finish by using a clear plastic treat bag and tied it with a ribbon, to keep everything from spilling out.Lastly, I added another tag with the first initial of their lastname  for a personalized touch.

  8. This is such a cute idea. I always used to give my teachers something at the end of term when I was younger. I had never thought about giving it to someone at the start of term. Will remember this when I have kids!

  9. Very cute! My son is just starting Kindergarten in a month, should I put something together for him to give to his teacher at the start of the year or wait until later on in the year?
