Back to School Teacher Gift Ideas

I can’t believe it’s the end of summer! Here in Oregon we don’t go back to school until September 4th.  So we have a little time left to come up with the perfect back to school teacher gift.  I’m a firm believer in showing teachers how important they are!  And why not start the year off with a smile… and a treat!

Here are some great ideas I found out there in blogland.  We haven’t decided which one we’re making (so if you’re looking at this Mrs. Fox or Mrs. Passmore, pretend to be surprised on Tuesday) =o)
Here’s a simple one for the kids or the teachers from It Is What It Is.
I just love this School Supply Cake from What’s Scrapping.
What teacher wouldn’t love this wonderful Back to School Wreath from The Ballard Bunch.
We made these great 1st Day of School Pencils out of Rolos.
This is a really fun Gift Bag and there’s a free printable (gotta love free printables!) from Detail-Oriented Diva.
We made these fun (and easy) Pencil Holders for my kid’s teachers 2 years ago.  (Yikes, it’s been 2 years!)
This is an easy and fun idea for a “Write Teacher Gift“.
I wish I could make cookies this cute for the teachers!  The Baking Sheet did an amazing job with these!
This is such a fun gift idea from Positively Splendid.
Fun ideas, right?  What do you think?  Which one should we make?
We hope that your children have an amazing year!  And if you’re a teacher, thanks for all you do!
I’m linking to the parties on my sidebar.
