Back-to-School Gift: {Perfect Teacher Recipe}

It's school time again! And, back to school brings with it a slew of emotions. On the one hand, there’s the promise of children seeing friends daily and the buying of new school supplies — new possibilities encapsulated in blank notebooks. But on the other hand, there’s the end of summer and the transition back to structured days, not to mention the challenge of switching the brain from off to on ... ahhh ROUTINE!

Back to school teacher gifts are a great way to let your children’s teachers know they are so loved! I believe gifts are one of my LOVE LANGUAGES :0 and {love} giving gifts that they can use.  Plus, most teachers would say a special gift in the beginning of the school year makes them feel appreciated. 

So, today I am sharing a simple gift. There are all types of different character traits that make up the {perfect} teacher.  Trust, care, love, kindness, respect, diversity just to name a few. This little gift along with the Perfect Teacher Recipe gift tag is the perfect way to get them excited about the new year.

A cute mini notebook with the teacher's initial accompanied with a post-it note holder.

Here's a peek inside ...   

A few note cards clipped on the inside flap.

Embellish with a cute stamp!
