Perfect Gift for Teachers! Stock Up on Summer School Supply Sales!

I love making sure my gifts are exactly what the receiver wants. One gift that I always get a great response from is my preschool gifts. Every year when Walmart & Target have all the back 2 school stuff on sale I hit them up hard. I buy TONS of supplies and stick them aside.

Perfect Gift for Teachers! Stock Up on Summer School Supply Sales!Since all of the supplies are only around $.25 it’s really easy to get everything for under $10. I then picked up a milk crate that can also be used in the classroom for only $2.

Back 2 School Cheap Teacher Gift Idea! Classroom Supplies Stock Up!

Not bad for $10, right? This would have cost me WAY more if I had waited until now to buy it all.

Perfect Gift for Teachers! Stock Up on Summer School Supply Sales!

Since there is still room in to put more in I’ll be buying some other items they often ask for like lunch bags, sandwich bags, and popsicle sticks.


  1. That is an AWESOME deal!!!

    Good shopper 🙂


  2. Tammi says

    That is genius!! I am going to remember that!

  3. Awesome gift idea indeed! So much better than a bunch of soap or candy that they may never use.

  4. Candace says

    I am so stealing that idea for my daughter’s class! Brilliant!

  5. what I learned this year is to buy the items at the pre school sale rather than wait for the discounted after school begins clearance. walmart had better prices in July!

  6. That is such a thoughtful gift! Fabulous idea. I will have to steal it when my oldest starts school.

  7. Mimi says

    Ok, that is VERY cool!! What a great idea. Never thought of something like that. I usually get a gift certificate to the local coffee shop.

  8. Aleksandra says

    Great gifts! Go you!!

  9. what a great idea! I don’t have kids in school anymore, but they had just started asking for kleenex & extra class stuff when my youngest was in elementary school.

  10. Bobbie says

    what a wonderful idea! I should start doing this! It’s a great gift!

  11. Katie says

    what a great idea!

  12. Rhea says

    That’s a really great idea. I wish I was better at thinking ahead.

  13. Amber says

    That’s a brilliant idea!

  14. Jenny says

    That is a genius idea! You are so thoughtful to think of that ahead of time and put it together for Christmas. I can’t imagine anyone not wanting one of those gift baskets…teacher or not!

  15. How smart you are to put it together over time! What a great gift!

  16. It’s a perfect gift!!!!!!!!!!

  17. Kate @ The Shopping Mama says

    Ooh that’s a super smart idea. I’m sure it’s REALLY appreciated!

  19. Your Awesome!!! Those teachers must love you!!! What a great idea, good job planning ahead!

  20. Great idea. I use to stock up on whatever I had a coupon for when my kids were little. Now that the grandkids come over I’m doing it again.

  21. Jessica says

    great idea!

  22. Marilyn @ A Lot of Loves says

    That is such a good idea! I never think ahead.

  23. Tammy says

    Linking up for the first time today…:) Great gift idea!

  24. Michelle says

    That is a wonderful idea – they can always use the supplies. I just picked up Nine West wallets at TJ Maxx for $12. I got one for each of my daughter’s teachers and her gymnastics coach.

  25. Deborah says

    Great idea. You are one smart cookie!

  26. Awesome gifts!

  27. Kisha Floren says

    Such a great and appreciated gift!!!

  28. Crystal C says

    Great idea! And for 10 bucks WOW

  29. Tammy says

    I pick up a ton of stuff during tax free weekend. Between the school lists, and Girl Scouts, it comes in handy.

  30. Smart thinking! My guy loves to draw but he goes through markers like a mad man! Should just stock up when they go on sale and give them to him for Christmas, duh!

  31. That is a great idea! So much better than getting them a candle or something they do not really want.

  32. Dee says

    LOL! I do the same thing..but stockpile it here for future use!

  33. I love these preschool gift ideas! I was wondering myself what to get D’s teacher!

    Happy WW!

  34. Daria says

    What a great gift! I have a box of school supplies just like that from all the Back to School Sales! I hadn’t thought to give it as the teacher’s xmas gift, but GREAT idea!

  35. That is a FABULOUS idea.

  36. Great find..

  37. blueviolet says

    Good job thinking ahead of time with that gift!

  38. I ended up getting lots of extra spiral notebooks and folders…should have stocked up on glue and crayons! Well, there’s always next year!
    Merry Christmas!

  43. Jennifer DaMomme says

    Our school lives to be gifted baby wipes. I am the mom who buys supplies and always think of single moms and wonder how they could add this expense to their already tight budgets. I often bring in extra supplies throughout the year.
