Back to School Teacher Gifts

I admit it.  I'm one of those moms that likes to do all the cute, fun things when it comes to school.  You might remember Lincoln's Valentine's to his classmates last year. 

I knew I wanted to do something a little extra special for Lincoln to bring back to his teachers on his first days of school -- I just wasn't sure what!  

So I turned to one of my favorite trusty sites, Pinterest!  And with that, I have compiled a few of my favorite back to school teacher gifts!

In order from top, left to right with sources:
--Tumbler filled with iced tea or lemonade packets -- One Artsy Mama
--Highlighter Bouquet -- DIY Inspired
--Bunch of Soap -- All Parenting
--Smart Cookie Jar -- Corner House Blog
--Crayon Wreath -- Pinterest
--Glass Jar with Hershey's Hugs -- Pinterest
--Bunch of Sharpies -- The Happy Scraps
--Customized Hand Sanitizer -- Crafts Unleashed
--Crayon Box -- Pinterest

So, what did I come up with?  Well, as adorable as these all are, I'm taking a more simple, practical route.  I am filling a gift bag up with paper towels, Lysol wipes, hand sanitizer, and tissues.   I figured all of these things are needed in the classroom, and I'm sure they go through them quite frequently.  So while it might not be as cute as these handmade gifts, I think it will be appreciated.

Do you give your child's teacher a back-to-school gift?  If so, what are you doing for this school year?
