Whether elated by the return to school’s routine, or saddened by summer’s end, you’re surely ready to make sure this school year gets off to a great start. The kids have backpacks full of shiny new supplies, the stores are stocking for winter even though it’s still summer temperatures, and the teachers have created classrooms of creative learning fun. In the midst of preparations for your family, why not take a few quick moments to show your appreciation for the teacher who will guide your child this upcoming year?
These ideas are simple, sweet, and sure to please!

Serendipity and Spice has a playful spin on the beloved children’s classic If You Give a Mouse a Cookie. What happens when you print these cute tags and attach them to a bag of homemade (or thoughtfully chosen!) cookies for teacher? The best year ever, of course.
Gone Like Rainbows features several free printables including tags for great–and easy!–teacher ideas. How would you like to offer the wish for a “smooth year” accompanied by a bottle of hand lotion? This is a great way to counteract the dry hands your child’s teacher is sure to experience during the constant washing of flu season!
No teacher says no to a chocolate fix every now and then. Sweeten yours up with a printable wrapper to please every math teacher around. After all, “this year is going to rule!” Printable courtesy of Bombshell Bling.
Remind your child’s teacher how pleased you are to have them by attaching this printable to a tube of Burt’s Bees Lip Balm. You’ll keep her ready for all the talking she has to do on the first day, as well as offer the reminder that you’re “happy to BEE here.” Happy Home Fairy created this beautiful tag.
Teacher survival kits are easy to assemble and can be customized to suit your budget and teacher’s needs. We like this one that offers up a year of “sharp” students (colored sharpies), teachers who care “a latte” (think Starbucks VIA packets or a gift card), and a dose of good health with a scented bottle of hand sanitizer. Check out Five Heart Home for more great ideas and printables.
Have a great school year!
