So I have this weird obsession with school supplies. Like I get giddy looking at paper and pencils, and don’t even get me started on folders and planners. You better believe I was the second grader rocking the whole Lisa Frank set. And now all the stores rolling out the back to school displays has me in one happy mood and wanting to buy all these supplies that I don’t need. But come on, the folders and binders and notebooks all coordinate! Who can resist?!
So while I go stock up on unnecessary post-its and page dividers you may be thinking of another back to school item- teacher gifts. Some people may feel that teacher gifts are kind of over the top but I think when you consider everything a teacher does for your child then giving a small gift at the beginning of the year is the very least you could do. And if I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times… the gift doesn’t have to be big or expensive, just the simple act of showing someone you care is enough.
With that in mind here are five candy gift ideas that can be put in a jar and printable tags to match. Decorate the tops with some cute ribbon or paper and you’re all set!
One of my favorite candies is Smarties. And they’re a classic candy for back to school.
Can’t decide which candy to use? With this jar you can use anything that is colorful! Skittles, jelly beans, mike & ikes… you decide!
Swedish Fish? Or maybe even Goldfish? This jar is taken to an extra level of cuteness with a straw and paper clip fishing rod. And to create the look of water crumple up some saran wrap inside.
What teacher doesn’t want to be the cool teacher? Let them know you think they rock with some Pop Rocks!
And finally some lemon heads make a cheery gift that looks pretty and tastes yummy all at once!
And now for the tags! Each of these tags is 2.5 inches which makes them perfect for cutting out and using as a mason jar lid topper. Or you can just hole punch the top and tie them onto the jar using some ribbon. Easy peasy.
