10 Teacher Gifts For The First Day Of School

Here are 10 of my favorite gift ideas for teachers I’ve found online:

1) A loaf of homemade bread w/ a special note

“May this preschool year be like this loaf of bread….

so very delicious you barely notice the crummy parts.”


2) Lotions with labels that say:

“I hope your school year goes smoothly”

3) Packs on pencils with a tag that says:

“You are the “write” teacher for me”

4) Calculator with a cute note that says:

“According to my calculations this is going to be a great year!”
