Best Back to School Teacher Gift

- - Teacher Gifts

It’s a very nice gesture to give a teacher a small gift at the beginning of the year. This gift idea is my favorite because it includes a thoughtful twist!

best-back-to-school-teacher-gift-thoughtfulEdible gifts always make a great gift because they can be consumed and shared with others. With that said, this gift comes with a food item.

More importantly, it’s paired with a note in the form of an offer… an offer to help. Teachers always have so many things on their plate so they love it when parents help in the classroom.

With this teacher gift, your child’s teacher will be so excited to know he or she can call on you for help when needed.

It’s  a win-win! The more help they receive, the more time teachers can focus on their students, including your child.

Back-to-School 3D Food Pencil Cases

I remember as kids the excitement of getting new Back-to-School clothes and school supplies.

3D-pizza-pencil-case-thoughtful-gift-ideaMom enjoyed taking us shopping. Looking back I think she was like every parent, happy and ready for school to start!

Some of you may remember buying shoes at Payless where you could purchase two pairs for $5. That was their big campaign slogan a long long time ago.

Purchasing three-ring binders, notebook paper, spiral notebooks, #2 pencils, Bic pens and folders with pictures of a popular TV show were the main school supply staples of the baby boom era during which I grew up.

I’ve gotta tell you, there’s a lot more fun things to choose from now! I found a back-to-school item that will keep things organized AND that kids will think is cool – a 3D Food Pencil Case!

You can buy pencil cases that look like pizzas, ice cream sandwiches, hot dogs, hamburgers, ice cream cones, bagels, bananas, pita breads, and cookies to mention a few.  Sorry these items are no longer available. You can still get cute food pencil cases through Amazon.com

Teacher Survival Kit | Back to School Gift

Summer = sleeping in, relaxing and hanging out. Back to School = alarms clocks, homework and regular routines.

Making the switch from summer vacation to back to school definitely takes some adjustment for all parties involved – students, parents and teachers. Don’t forget about the teachers!

back to school teacher survival kitMy son is starting Parent’s Day Out again this fall, and I wanted to give his teacher a present to make adjusting to spending all day with a room full of kids just a little bit easier.

I started making my Back to School Teacher Survival Kit by filling it with caffeine and chocolates. Two must-haves for enduring long hours and stress of any kind.

But being the healthy living person I strive to be, I wanted to add some healthier options for the teachers that would still provide them with a good pick-me-up.
