Here are 21+ of thebest back to school teacher gifts that you can easily DIY with just a few supplies and a little bit of time.
Do you have fond memories of your teachers from elementary school? I can’t remember all the details but I remember Mrs. Rudisill.
She was a kind, tall woman who was my first grade teacher. (I think. Who can remember all those years ago?!)
I was the gawky shy kid (still am sometimes!) She always encouraged me and made me feel so welcomed and valued in that new school year.
Books were my friends back then, and Mrs. Rudisill made sure we learned to read and love them as well.
Fast forward to 1994 and our decision to homeschool. Our oldest daughter was five and it was time to decide her future education. Little did I know we would end up adopting a sibling group off three children and homeschooling all five over 23 years.
I know my love of learning was planted early through a caring teacher. Even if you’re not a homeschool mom, you want to encourage the precious men and women who teach your children diligently every day with small gifts. This Chocolate Chip Cookie Mix is a favorite back to school teacher gift for your child’s teacher!
Today I’ve rounded up 21+ back to school teacher gift ideas from my favorite bloggers. Spend a few minutes with your kids and find a project to surprise and delight those new teachers this year!

If you are looking for an easy DIY teacher gift for that special teacher in your child’s life, look no further! This is a super simple DIY gift for teachers that can be put together in just a few minutes.
These gifts are great for teacher appreciation week or for gifts throughout the year. You could also add a special note or a gift card to make them even better. Most of the items are from the dollar store, so these gift ideas really are inexpensive to make.
It can be nerve wracking on the first day of the school year to meet your child’s new teacher. A small token of gratitude and hope for the new school year could help ease your child’s anxiety.
Many teachers use their own money to purchase school necessities for their classrooms. Sending more than the required supplies like extra sharpies, hand sanitizer, glue sticks, etc. would be appreciated!
An Amazon gift card or even one from Starbucks would make a great teacher gift and allow flexibility for the teacher as he/she begins the school year.
