12 Inexpensive Back to School Teacher Gifts {Round Up}

"School bells are ringing, loud and clear;
Vacation’s over, school is here.
We hunt our pencils and our books,
And say goodbye to fields and brooks,
To carefree days of sunny hours,
To birds and butterflies and flowers.
But we are glad school has begun.
For work is always mixed with fun.
When autumn comes and the weather is cool,
Nothing can take the place of school."
~School by Winifred C. Marshall

Here in Huckleberry land we're gearing up for our little ones to head back to school in the next few weeks. All of our oldest will be in Preschool this year, while a few of our littler ones will be attending Mother's Day Out for the first time. There are definitely mixed feelings from excitement to worry and even a little bit of fear thrown in for good measure. After all, it's never easy to let your babies go, is it? (Although, I'm not gonna lie, Lydia and I will be high fiving each other as soon as we drop our kiddos off and will then head to the nearest thrift store. Sshh... Don't tell!!)
So, I thought it'd be fun to round up a few creative and inexpensive back to school teacher gift ideas.

How awesome and creative are all of these ideas? This has been great inspiration for me and I'm excited to put together a little something to give to my boys' teachers next week! Also, I figure they need a little buttering up... Because, seriously, these people are saints for dealing with multiple toddlers All. Day. Long. ;)

Did you send a teacher gift with your child this year as they headed back to school? Did your little one start their school year yet?
Linking up with these great parties:


  1. I love all of your ideas, thanks for sharing them all. My favorites are the crayon pencil holder and the wreath is WONDERFUL!!!
    I have a similar project and I am also partying at the "Homemade By You Link Party" on "Made to be a Momma".
    I would love it if you'd stop by too.
