Back to school is here! 

Several years ago, I use to design printables for a living and now as my kids have grown, I want to help you with the back to school stress of teacher gifts. While gifts are not necessary, they are always appreciated. Encouragement and support from parents means the world to our teachers. I have pulled together some budget friendly ideas to go along with the FREE instant downloads below. 

Directions for the printables: 
*Below each image is a pdf link for you to click on for the printable of your choice
*Download it and save it to your computer
*You can print it at home or send it to have printed at a local print shop {Office Depot, Sam's Club or Costco}
*Depending on the size of the tag, you will get several per sheet
*Have it printed on HEAVY white cardstock
*Cut out each tag
*Punch a hole for ribbon or string, or simply attach the tag with tape or glue
*Add your child's name with a short message on the back


Who doesn't love chocolate, especially Dove? I designed these tags to resemble a chalkboard. You can attach the tag with a coordinating ribbon to a jar and fill it with chocolates or mints. I bought this jar here but these jars are cute too!


With school supplies as a must for teachers, I like to help them out and purchase a few necessities like rulers. These tags fit perfect with a set of new rulers for the classroom. This tag would also be fun to add to a box or tub with several items to reflect rules of the classroom for the teacher - like no gum {give him/her a pack of gum}, no food or drink {buy a gift card for the teachers favorite lunch place or a new insulated water bottle} and wash your hands {a great smelling hand sanitizer}. 


Add these tags to a box of colored pencils, crayonsdry erase markers {or these fun colors} or regular markers + a stress reliever coloring book. I added it to some fun colored pencils with jute


A remarkable year is the best way start a new year, don't you think? I love pulling out all the brightest colors of a marker pack like I did here with Sharpies and tying on the tag with bakers twine


This jar idea is geared more towards the very young ones PreK-2nd grade. These tag wraps fit this jar perfectly and can hold a variety of goodies inside. For example mints, hard candy, Dove chocolates, M&Ms. 


I added these tags to a mason jar {8oz /16oz} that I painted and added glitter to the bottom as a DIY gift and filled it with Dove chocolate - are you seeing a trend? I love Dove chocolate and I'll use any excuse to buy some! lol Add these tags to any jar, bottle, container, bag of candy, or anything else you can think of to spoil your child's teacher(s). Remember its not necessary, but VERY much appreciated! 


I hope you enjoyed these budget friendly ideas and the free printables to help you support and encourage your child's teachers this year. Here's to a GREAT YEAR!

If you use any of the tags, please tag @BellaGreyDesigns so I can see how you used them + I'd love to share your ideas!

If you've been following me for any length of time, you know I love everything southern! The styles, the decor and of course the gingham and monograms!

If you like the gingham print trend going on right now, but unsure you want an entire outfit in it, then opt for an accessory - a belt, scarf, headband, handbag or shoes. These options can become a statement piece for your outfit. 

If you're feeling adventurous, take a look at any one of the four tops I rounded-up below, pair them with a skirt, shorts, jeans or a solid colored pant. The tops are great on their own, but you could always pair them with a brightly colored blazer or sweater to make it really pop!

Loose, flowy tops and dresses are really hot and these gingham dresses are the perfect compliment. Add a cute elastic belt and/or an oversized hat and you have a super trendy, ultra fashionable outfit! Pair with shoes in the same shade or kick it up a notch and go with a bold shoe color to enhance the over all style or look. 

I'm loving the gingham trend and have definitely hopped on the band-wagon! Find all the below items linked in my liketoknow.it here

Is it just me or are boys, men or males in general hard to buy for anytime of the year? When I ask my son, brothers or husband what they want, they just shrug their shoulders! That is DEFINITLY not helpful! In my quest to find a great gift for him, I have made it a point to go "shopping" with my husband over the last several months, when I say shopping it means a lot of home improvement stores and sporting good stores! Which don't get me wrong, I do see the allure in both of those types of stores. Believe me, I could spend hours in The Home Depot dreaming of ways to improve my house, both inside and out. Back to gift ideas for him......I have compiled a few items from tech to athletic and a few in between. 

1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9


Charging Station Dock with six charging ports - keep everything in one place. 

I can't count how many times we have needed this laser level! 

This Tile Essentials pack would be a great gift for anyone who forgets where they put their keys

Have to buy for someone who loves a little luxury? This cashmere scarf is so soft and warm. 

Who's ready to get fit? This GoFit Mega ProGym can go with you anywhere. 

My hubby loves Ryobi brand and he will definitely be getting this tool combo kit!

Such a great buy on this Eddie Bauer packable down jacket + it doesn't take up much space in the luggage! 

An electronic dartboard is a fun addition to any game room or man cave. 

Have a craftsman on your hands? Help him organize his tools with this rolling cabinet tool chest.

I hope these gift ideas help you to find a gift for the man in your life, whether that be your husband, father, brother or son.

I don't know about you, but I love spoiling friends and family during the holidays. So it was super easy to find these great gift ideas for HER. I always include items I either already have or are on my own list. Its a lot harder paring down the ideas, otherwise I would have 100+ gift ideas! ha


1|2|3|4|5|6|7|8|9|10|11|12|13|14|15


This camo jacket is perfect for this time of year to go over either a light or heavy sweater. 

I love a great fragrance and this one from Lancome is perfect!


Whether you pair this cute turtleneck sweater dress with boots or some fun sneakers you will definitely be noticed!


I love candles throughout the year, this candle accessory kit is great for all your candle needs. 

Not that it gets super cold here in Dallas, but how cute are these wooley-suede boots? 


For the new year, I am going to get more organized and this large format acrylic wall calendar is on my wish list!


Don't be without power again, grab this Power Bank - comes in two colors. 


Do you love cuddling up in a soft cozy robe after your shower or bath? These sherpa robes are just what you need! Comes in these three colors. 


With ten color options for this cute front-tie sweater, with bat wing sleeves and a ruffle hem - the hardest part will be choosing a color!


I don't know if your kiddos play winter sports, but if they do, you will want one of these plush hoodies to stay warm! I just purchased the leopard print, comes in 5 additional color choices. 


You know my love for navy blue. These Chinoiserie Ginger Jar hand towels are a great hostess gift. 


As I have aged, my eyes are not as sharp as they use to be, this LED vanity mirror is a life saver! As a bonus, you can charge your phone and stream music as it has a built-in speaker. 



I fell in love with these Kell Parker designer-inspired boots and they are at the top of my list this year! 


This beautiful satin sleep set by Kitsch come in blush and ivory as well as the leopard. Pillowcase, eye mask and scrunchie are all part of the set. 


The Woolrich textured wrap is great to throw on over a light weight tee and dresses up your outfit immediately. 

I hope this gift guide was useful for you to mark a few names off your list or at least some items off your own list!

Hi friends! Even though it has taken me WAY longer to decorate for fall than it usually does, I am happy to say I finally have some of the house decorated! Fall is one of my favorite times of year, with the cooler temps, pumpkin everything and all the seasonal treats we can eat. 


I usually keep my fall decor pretty simple. This year I included my all time favorite fall decoration ~  Mr. Funnybones! I can't decorate without him. He tends to move throughout the house during this time of year {you've seen him many times - here and here}. Different sized black bats adorn the kitchen cabinets as well as the upper half of the wall and a metal haunted house, I've had for years sits in the background behind Mr. Funnybones. It adds just the right amount of Halloween. 


Mr. Funnybones was having so much fun during the photoshoot, at one point he donned a witches hat! To add a little pop of color I picked up these beautiful faux orange peonies and added a mini wood Blessed sign along with a ceramic pumpkin and faux pears in my woven bread basket. 


To add height and a little more texture to the kitchen, I placed my large round marble/wood cutting board behind the range and included some faux wheat stalks. Placing a few neutral colored pumpkins ties the color scheme together. Can you tell Mr. Funnybones is tired of being photographed? He appears to be ready to jump off the counter. LOL

If you're interested in the black bats, I have created a FREE printable. To download the Halloween Bats PDF, click here OR you can right-click on the picture to copy it to word or another program. 



If you decide to use the bats, I'd love for you to tag @BellaGreyDesigns in your social media posts. 

Happy Fall y'all!
