Well here we are again – it’s Back To School TIME! I don’t know about you but as happens every year I am running around trying to get my children their clothes, shoes, backpacks etc… They also need so much in the way of stationary supplies, arts and craft supplies and more for that first big day – I always turn to Dollar Tree to help me out with those items. And you know the classroom item requests – antibacterial wipes, facial tissue – those are also easily found at Dollar Tree as well as that Back to School Teacher Gift which can easily be created with the help of Dollar Tree’s Value Seekers Club.
Today however, I am here to bring you tips for a teacher gift for that big day! Not only is it a big day for your children, it is a big day for the teacher that will become a huge part of your child’s life for the next year. It is important to make that teacher feel welcome as an addition to your child’s future and it doesn’t have to be expensive to achieve.
Dollar Tree can definitely help. Today I bring you a terrific Teacher Gift – inspired by Dollar Tree. Dollar Tree’s Value Seekers Club is a club full of crafts, recipes, décor, tips, contests, insider information, frugal fun ideas and more! Membership in this club is free and the content changes each month. Each month the project sheets can be saved or printed so you can even take the sheet into the store and use as a shopping list.
For the perfect Teacher’s gift pick up a nice basket from Dollar Tree and fill it with all sorts of goodies. I picked this idea from Dollar Tree’s Value Seekers Club and simply personalized it to our situation. The project calls for a container to be filled with items that a teacher needs. I modified the project by changing the content but also including a water bottle in the basket.
I chose a square slot basket…
and I filled the basket with the following:
Set of Barrel Pens – Every teacher needs more pens
Box of 16 Pencils – I am sure every day some student forgets a pencil
Set of 3 Dry Erase Markers – Every teacher needs extra dry erase markers
Rhinestone Lanyard – to proudly display the school ID and/or key card
Water Bottle – to keep hydrated during the day
Flavoring for Water – One box
Antibacterial Wipes – Pack of 30 – Teacher can stay germ-free
Travel Hand Sanitizer – Extra precaution
Eye Mask – Because at the end of the day the teacher will be exhausted and will need rest to do it all again.
This teacher gift costs just $10 and your child’s teacher will be thrilled to receive it. This proves that you don’t need to spend a huge amount of money to make someone feel appreciated while also providing products that will be very helpful.
Options to personalize this further include:
Personalize the water bottle by cutting their initial cut out of contact paper and adhering to the bottle – it will stay
Type up your favorite poem and include it in a handmade card
A photo of your child
Type up a list of your favorite drinks – for example I would suggest mixing berries (assorted) with my water; other people may suggest some mixture including cucumbers, oranges, lemons, strawberries etc…
Decorate with items you have around the house – ribbons, tape, string… Make paper flowers and place them around the basket.
If you wish to spend a few extra dollars you can add in some mints, candies, small snacks – which you can also purchase at Dollar Tree.
Include a mug from Dollar Tree – then the teacher will have a vessel for cool drinks as well as warm drinks. He/she will be all set all year long.
