This post on homemade gift ideas for teachers is courtesy of our contributor Michelle…The first day of preschool for my youngest son is coming up soon. Since I never like to show up to an event empty handed, I decided to create a small gift for his teacher for Back to School Night. While I was at Staples stocking up on school supplies for my oldest sons, I decided to pick up some Sharpie Neon Markers that were on sale (all Sharpie Fine and Ultra Fine assortment packs and Sharpie Neon Marker packs are currently on sale at Staples through August 24th, 2014 “while supplies last”). I also grabbed a bright colored pack of Sharpie Gel Highlighters that were on sale for $2. Since every teacher needs highlighters and permanent markers in their school supply arsenal, I figured a personalized jar of Sharpies would be the perfect gift. Not only does it add a little something special to her desk, it also doubles as a name plate.
Homemade Gift Ideas For Teachers:
- Sharpie Neon Markers
- Sharpie Gel Highlighters
- Mason Jar and lid ring
- Washi Tape
- Baker’s Twine
- Gift Tag cut from Scrapbook Paper
- Chalkboard Label
- Chalk Pen
Easy as 1, 2, 3.
- Cover the mason jar lid ring with the washi tape of your choice and fill it with Sharpie Markers and Highlighters.
- Using a chalk pen, personalize the label and adhere it to the mason jar.
- Write a little note on a ready-made gift tag or make your own from a piece of scrapbook paper and attach it to the jar.
It’s an adorable gift that’s also practical!
