Back to School Teacher Gift

Start off the school year with a thoughtful teachers gift! Last year we put this little goodie bag together to show my daughters new teacher how important we think she is. It was such a huge hit, we'll definitely be doing it again this year!

 We filled a reusable bag with items that teachers could use in their classrooms, especially on those long days during parent-teacher conferences. Trial size products are great.

We included the following items:
Spiral notebooks
Ballpoint pens
First aid kit
Air freshner
Nail files
Wet toilettes
Mouth wash
Hair spray
Hand cream
Listerine breath strips
Hand sanitizer
Nivea lip balm
Granola Bar

For the perfect finishing touch, we added the adorable teacher appreciate printable from Balancing Home.

Be creative and surprise your teacher with a back to school gift!

I hope your children have an amazing school year!
And a BIG thank you to all the teachers!
