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!
