Stressing about a back to school teacher gift, and not wanting to send in an apple with your kiddo? Never fear! I've found 5 great ideas that are simple, easy, and ones that the teacher will certainly enjoy!

Clockwise from top right

Chalkboard coffee mug from A Grande Life - if you haven't used chalkboard paint before, it is seriously one of the easiest things ever. Two coats, and you're done. Very cute, and you could fill it with tea or coffee, or a gift card for the teacher if you're not sure what she drinks {or wine...}

Handpainted journal from Sweet Stella's - A really pretty journal for your teacher would be a lovely gift. Do you know how much time a teacher does planning out their lessons? Give them something nice to write down their thoughts in!

Teach Appreciation Supply Bins from Baby Shmizz - I love these bins! Everything is organized and labelled (with free printables available in the post on Baby Shmizz), and bright and colorful! I've heard stories about teachers having to gather some of their own supplies, so I think this is a really thoughtful back to school gift.

DIY Homemade Lip Gloss from Joy the Baker - I absolutely love these little lip glosses, and they would make for a unique and personal back to school teacher gift. Not only are they pretty, it's unusual and not just another pair of scissors or an apple.

DIY Herb Infused Olive Oil by Building Our Story - Another unique gift, and one that looks really beautiful too! Bonus points if you know that your kiddo's teacher likes to cook! Add in fresh herbs, and maybe a chili pepper and you've got a really beautiful infused oil!
