Back to school is fast approaching. And that means it is time to start gathering school supplies. Many people like to send Teacher gifts to the classroom. Especially to help get the classroom off on a right start. So I came up with a great teacher gift idea to benefit the teacher and classroom!
For our schools, the teachers always have a list of “requested supplies” that they ask parents to donate at the beginning of the year. This helps to combat how much the teacher has to shell out of their own meager salary on classroom supplies as the school doesn’t provide enough for the year.
Easy Teacher Gifts Idea
So to make it special I found a way to make it extra meaningful!
Our teachers always ask for Kleenex Tissues and Paper Towels to be donated to the classrooms. So to make it even better right now you can earn DOUBLE Box Tops for Education when you purchase select Kleenex Tissues and Viva Paper towels.
I’ve been in schools where the Box Tops for Education has funded new books for the library. New after school programs, new science projects, new school supplies, new Curriculum, and new electronics for learning.
It all makes a difference.
Box Tops for Education makes it easy to give back to schools on your everyday purchases at Walmart.

I picked up the Kleenex Tissues and Viva Paper Towels since our teachers need them anyway. Plus some other school supplies our teachers usually need in the school year.
I got this brilliant idea for a teacher gift after I saw the cutest Back to School Party Decorations from Horrible Housewife!
Isn’t that just the cutest party ever?
I saw her creations and thought instantly how much our teachers would love those!
- Kleenex Tissues Box
- Viva Paper Towels
- Elastic Bands
- Washable Markers
- Colored Pencils
- Silk Ribbon
- Duct Tape
- Silk Floral Flowers
Be sure to visit Horrible Housewife to see how she put together her Paper Towel Tower.
I just used Colored Pencils instead of regular pencils for a splash of color.
Then Decorated with a silk yellow ribbon.
Finally, I touched it off with some bright flowers coming out of the top.
The Kleenex Box was a little different. So, I’ll show you how I made that one. I had to use some Duct Tape to help keep the markers from rolling around and bunching up.
I folded a corner over backward and taped it to the box of tissues. Then wrapped the Duct Tape around the box with the sticky side out.
I lined up the washable markers to stick to the duct tape. You could also use Dry Erase Markers. Our Teachers are always in need of those too!
Once all the markers were lined up I secured with an elastic.
I added a Ribbon to hide the elastic and duct tape from view.
On top I taped a box of colored pencils to the top.
Then using crayon boxes I angled them on top to make a TeePee over the colored pencils, securing them together with a paper clip.
Now both are complete.
You can add a card/note to each one and have your kids deliver them on back to school night or the first day of school.
And make sure you clip out the DOUBLE Box Tops for Education to donate to your classrooms! I just earned my children’s school an extra $1.40 for the classroom just by purchasing supplies we needed anyway!
