It’s back to school season and that means shopping for school supplies, packing lunches, and setting up many many alarms. While shopping for school supplies, you might want to pick up a few gifts for teachers. Teachers are the backbone of this country and a small token of appreciation really goes a long way. The price tag isn’t what matters here, it’s the thought that counts! If you’re running into a shopping mental block, I went ahead and corralled 14 thoughtful back to school teacher gifts they’ll love. They’re super easy and will definitely bring a smile to your kid’s beloved teachers.

I love this idea from Kendra over at Simply Darrling. A tumbler is a great gift for teachers to keep them hydrated throughout the day and Kendra filled hers with hair ties, nail polish, chapstick, lotion and washi tape. Other ideas could include:
- A gift card
- Pens, pencils, highlighters or dry erase markers
- Glue sticks
- Sticky notes
- Mini stapler
- Candies and mints
- Tea bags or flavored water packets, such as Crystal Light
- Hand sanitizer
- A thank you card

Teacher’s gifts are a fun little way to show your appreciation. And again, it’s the thought that counts! Another good idea if you’re at a block is to browse your favorite dollar aisle (mine is Target!) and pick out a few goodies for a personalized gift bag.
