Remember Tom Hanks’ character in You’ve Got Mail? He said, “Don’t you love New York in the fall? It makes me wanna buy school supplies. I would send you a bouquet of newly sharpened pencils if I knew your name and address.” Well yes, Joe Fox, and I’d give you my Social Security number too if you asked nicely after that kind of delivery.
There is something so magical about the start of the school year. Whether you’re excited for the entrance of fall, a super-fan of all the desk goodies in stores, or just a bit too eager to ship your kids off to school for a hot minute, this time of year brings a bittersweet changing of the guard. While moms and dads alike are finding themselves with a bit more alone time during the days, teachers are just beginning their journey with your little ones giving them the tools they need to grow.
My friend Becca, a teacher from North Hollywood, CA, chose two gifts that she would love to receive at the start of the school year: Paper Mate Flair Porous-Point Felt Tip Pen and a label maker like the Brother P-touch Home and Office Labeler.
Start the year off right with these gift ideas for your child’s teacher!
My personal favorite is Book Friends Book of Labels because your child’s teacher can use these 80 bookplate labels at home or in the classroom, they’re unique, and under $6!
Are you ready for the start of the school year? What do you have left to do before the big day arrives?
