Many students are eagerly awaiting their teacher assignments for the upcoming school year. In my home, I don’t know who is anticipating the news more – myself or the kiddos! We already know who my youngest has and we love her, and my oldest is hoping for a particular teacher this year, and my middle daughter…well…I just don’t think that she cares very much yet! As parents are getting ready for BTS – shopping for clothes, shoes and supplies – don’t forget the teachers and school professionals! I love my kids’ school and the staff there, and since I’m a PTO board member I am very involved and get to interact with them a lot. I see a lot of what other parents don’t and these worker bees deserve it all! I am not swimming in the dough like Scrooge McDuck, but I give back to the teachers when I can. One way to show appreciation is with a back-to-school gift, and Kristy, who is also super involved at her kids’ schools, did some shopping at a few different retailers and came up with adorable and affordable teacher survival kits! See the gifts she put together below.

Temu! I’m sure you’ve heard about it and probably are hesitant like I was, but I’m telling you, it’s awesome! Just look at how adorable those canvas totes are as well as that pillowcase over the insert. These are perfect for a pre-k or kindergarten classroom.

Wood number pins can be found both at Target (usually comes out in July and can be found in their dollar bins) or on Amazon. These can be used in the classroom as decorations or a creative way to help learn math.

Both the pencil ID lanyard and mini hand sanitizers can be found at Bath & Body Works during one of their crazy sales, and they give the gift such a nice touch! Other fun lanyards can be found on Temu as well, so be sure to check them all out! Such a great add to the bags.

Who doesn’t love a good lip balm?! EOS has the best ones, keeping lips smooth and hydrated with amazing smelling, lip-smacking flavors. These are perfect little addition to a survival kit if you ask me.

I love a good planner and these planner stickers keep it fun and colorful, which can help keep you on track, especially when you’re a teacher on-the-go with a lot on your plate both in and out of the classroom.

If you’re in the Frugal and Thriving FB group, you already know about the ever-popular chenille letter bags, and of course these ones say “teach” so they’re perfect! These “Survival Kits” are so clever and definitely have the teachers in mind! Each TEACH bag is filled with:

As you can see, all of the thoughtful items included set the teacher up for a successful and fun school year, and it gives them a sense of comfort and appreciation while in the classroom!

Each of the canvas totes include the filled TEACH bags with these items as well:

All of these items were from the following retailers: Amazon, Bath & Body Works, Walmart, Target and Temu! If you haven’t checked out Temu yet, I highly recommend it! They are running a massive site-wide sale and it’s definitely a one-stop shopping option. PLUS, they also offer free shipping and free 90-days returns!

Some schools may have already returned, but most schools have a September start date, and we love to support our teachers! Classroom budgets get tighter each year, and most educators spend far too much from their own pockets to get their classrooms together to help our kids learn each year. We started a ‘Teacher Wish List‘ on our group page for teachers to be able to post their wish lists for their classrooms in hopes that parents, grandparents or anyone really would ‘adopt’ a teacher by purchasing items off of their lists! Here are the most popular items that teachers are looking for this school year!

Our school professionals work so hard all year long, and now that summer break is approaching, it’s time for them to take a much-deserved break! Help them out by giving them a sun-sensational gift they can use and enjoy all summer long! These end-of-year gifts can be customized to include whatever seasonal goodies you want…see our end-of-year gift ideas below!

Frugal and Thriving may earn a small commission via affiliate links in this post. See full disclosure here.

Whether you want to grab a pretty insulted cooler or a fun drink dispenser to fill with little knick-knacks, or even a fishbowl filled with Jell-O shots or airplane shooters (Kristy’s son’s preschool teachers had 34 students in her class and 28 of them were boys – so yes, this was a much-appreciated gift), these summer-themed gifts will keep your teachers relaxed and loving life until the next school year starts.

Fill your insulated coolers with the essentials like drink mixers (we love pineapple juice or tropical juice for summer) and a Brumate shaker for easy mixing and drinking, cute beach towel chair clips, and travel-sized skincare and beauty products like hair ties and nail polish

Stock up your drink dispensers with mini sun safety products, dry shampoo, refreshing facial mist, a cute coffee mug or stemless wineglass, and other summertime favorites!

These are some great go-to basket fillers – little snacks, hydration packs, and gum are also great ideas!

These clear bags are perfect for storing all of those little goodies! Add this adorable gift tag and the teachers are sure to appreciate your thoughtful gift!

Where would we be without our beloved educators? I’m sure most of us can probably still remember a teacher or two that had a profound impact on our youth and our learning experiences. As some of the hardest working people out there, teachers deserve to know how much they are appreciated! That’s why we’re getting ready for Teacher Appreciation Week with these awesome gift ideas. See our teacher appreciation gift guide below!

No one educator is alike, and gifting something that perfectly fits their unique personality goes a long way! Whether your teacher has a sweet tooth, likes to stay organized with stationary, is fond of keeping memories from their students, or loves to accessorize, these gift ideas will show your classroom leader just how appreciated they are!

These canvas initial tote bags make the perfect teacher appreciation gift! They are versatile and reusable, and all you have to do is stuff them with a few goodies to make your very own gift bag.

Last day, best day! Help teachers gear up for the end of the year with an adorable t-shirt (we like this option too) and add in a pretty initial keychain they can use all year long. Bonus: attach a gift card to the keychain to show a little extra love!

How cute! These personalized pencil name plates can be easily customized and make a fun addition to the classroom!

Say it with a stamp! These self-inking stamps are super convenient for any educator.

It’s important to stay hydrated! From speaking all day long in the classroom to running around the school taking care of business, these water bottles will be your teacher’s BFF!

Okay this is just precious – your kids can record a message for their teacher with this lip kit, and then all the teacher has to do is scan the QR code to listen!

Washing and sanitizing hands all day long can leave them feeling dry and chapped. These mini Hempz lotions are great for keeping at a desk and moisturizing hands all day long!
