This post is in partnership with Give Bakery Because and Rich Products. As always, all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.

Each year it seems the summer gets shorter and shorter – or maybe it’s because we are so busy that it just “seems” shorter. Whatever the case, I’d like it to be longer. And I’m sure there are a few teachers that would like a longer break, too!

Teachers sure are special people. After having an in-home daycare for almost 10 years, I know what it’s like to work with kids all day long. But I can’t imagine having 20-30 to take care of in my classroom all day long! That is a lot of kids that require a lot of patience.

So, to help ease teachers back into the back to school transition, how about giving them something sweet to start their year off right?! They’ll love the thoughtful teacher gift and you’ll love knowing that you were able to create a unique teacher’s gift idea for them, too! (and one that is delicious!)

Easy gift idea for teachers

For a simple and adorable gift idea, pick up several packages of cookies, donuts or donut holes on your weekly grocery store run in the bakery section for this sweet treat. (An edible teacher gift is always a good idea!)

Have the kids do a little research to find out what sweet treats their teacher likes. You may as well gift them with a dessert that they’re going to eat, right?!

supplies needed to make DIY gift tags

Grab a package of cellophane gift bags, colorful string, and a cute gift tag. I love making my own tags at home by buying stamps and ink and then having the kids “stamp” out their own tags.

Creative gift tags or homemade teacher gift tags are a fun way to really spruce up a gift. They can keep it as a fun memory even after they’ve eaten their gift.

It’s just a fun way to show how much thought you put into their gift with a little customization.
