It is back to school time, already. Crazy, huh! Going back to school means packing lunches, shopping for school supplies, finding out your teacher and making a Back to School Teacher gift. When it comes to going back to school I used to always send my kids with flowers to give their teacher. That way their teacher knew that we appreciated them and were looking forward to a new school year. Although, talking with different teachers, I quickly came to learn that they appreciated any gift, but especially appreciate school supplies. When sharing our back to school gift idea on Instagram one teacher commented, "As a teacher I would be VERY thankful for Sharpies! :-)"  This year, we did all of our back to school shopping at Staples. While there, I stopped by to pick up a few packs of Sharpies. I was surprised to find this:

Rows and rows of Sharpies. Bright colors, bold colors, classic colors and more. Oh, how I love sharpies. I remember growing up when I would go back to school, I was always excited about a brand new box of crayons. Now, as an adult, I get excited about Sharpies. I could own one of each color and be perfectly happy! Who wouldn't, the possibilities are endless with Sharpies. You can draw on mugs, organize your calendar, correct homework assignments and so much more. Sharpies really are a great addition to a teacher gift. ( and of course I kept a whole colorful pack for myself, too!)

I have three school aged kids right now, so we had to make sure that we had plenty to go around! Luckily, Sharpie Fine and Ultra Fine assortment packs and Sharpie Neon Marker packs are currently on sale at Staples through August 24th “while supplies last” so I was able to stock up. Because Sharpies come in so many fun colors, I got the idea to use a rainbow theme for their Back to School Teacher Gift.
