Check out this idea from Thuy at MyPaperPinwheel.blogspot.com:
Summer is almost over for some of us and back to school is just around the corner! When you are out shopping this weekend during Tax Free weekend, grab some extra school supplies and make a very inexpensive gift for the First Day of School!
A drink container (I got mine at Kum & Go while picking up drinks and I saved it)
Various supplies I found on sale
Directions: I simply added all the supplies to my empty drink container. I took some of the items out of the package and wrapped them with twine. I added a tag I accented with washi tape and wrote a little message to wish our new teacher a Happy First Day of School! Super easy and super sweet! Little things like school supplies makes a huge difference to our wonderful teachers!
