More Back-to-School Teacher Gift Ideas

     Hi Guys- this is part two of gift ideas for your kids' teachers. School will be here before you know it!

     This first idea is SUPER easy- all you do is get some extra large binder clips and cover them with decorative paper. Add a sticker and tie a ribbon to it, and you've got yourself a darling gift card and/or photo holder. This project is so affordable and easy, it would be good to use if you have to make several gifts.

Here are a few more ideas from gifts I've given over the years. . .
This gift card/ photo holder made from a wooden spool wrapped with school-themed paper would make a unique gift. Even after they use the gift card, they still have the spool for a photo holder. Here are directions for making these.

I featured these chocolate covered gummy bears here. Just dip gummy bears in melted chocolate (I used chocolate almond bark), let them cool, then place them in a baggie. You could label this, "It's sweet to be back at school!"

Here's another simple idea. Get a small bucket and fill it with candy and school supplies.
I covered these buckets with strips of map, but the gift would work with plain buckets as well.

     If you don't have time to make anything, I don't think you could go wrong with a gift card. Starbucks, Sonic, or Barnes and Noble would surely make the teacher's day!

     Note: I am mentioning these gift ideas with a school theme, but they would work for any holiday.  
         -Imagine making a few of the binder clips with a Halloween theme and use them to display favorite photos from past Halloweens.
-The buckets would make cute "goody bags" for a birthday party.
 -The wooden spool photo holders would make great Christmas gifts for extended family or the
 girls at work.

     Thanks for stopping by and God bless.

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
