Smart Cookies – Teacher Gift Ideas with Free Printable

We still have a month left of school – can you believe it is coming up that soon!  Teacher Appreciation week snuck up on me and I knew I needed a quick and simple teacher gift idea!  I truly appreciate all that the teachers have done for my children and want to make sure to give them a little thank you, even if it is super simple.

I had this fun printable made that you can download here!  I think the quote is perfect – “Thanks to you, we’re smart cookies!”  You just need the printable and some cookies – use your favorite homemade cookies or buy some if you are in a hurry (like I usually am)

Now depending on how much of a hurry you are in and what supplies you have you can make up a cute teacher gift.  If your family is anything like mine you probably didn’t get the note from your kid about Teacher Appreciation week until the morning of.  In this case grab a box of cookies and use washi tape to put your tag on – still cute but takes you less then 5 minutes – and that includes shopping time!  You don’t even have to take the time to pull off the store label – the tag covers the whole thing!  Well at least it covers the ones from my store – and they are pretty big.

Here are a few more ideas if you have more time.

The celophane treat bags are only $2.99 for 50 at the store  – add some cute ribbon and you are all set!

This glass jar was only $3.99 and I used a 40% off coupon so it was such a great deal – I think this idea is my favorite.

Fill the glass jar with cookies, add ribbon and the pritable tag and you have a cute teacher gift – with a jar the teacher can reuse.

For the last idea you will need a cardboard treat box (only .99cents) and some tissue paper and matching washi tape.  Layer the washi tape on the box – super easy!

Add the printable tag to the top, put tissue paper in the box and fill up with cookies!
