Smarties Teacher Gift

I have another fun and frugal teacher gift idea. This smarties teacher gift is so fun! The entire idea is really adorable.

We have included a free printable tag that states “Thank you for making us smarties”, but it is also very frugal. You can find everything at the dollar store.

The entire gift is so frugal but has tons of thoughtfulness packed into it. Another fun idea is this easy Pencil Vase.

Smarties printable

Get the free printable to add to this super cool Teacher Gift. It really completes the look and brings everything together.

You can print this using regular printer paper. Since it will be applied to the jar, it is not necessary for it to be cardstock.

I would use white paper and not different colors so you can see the design best.

Teacher appreciation quotes with Smartie candy variations:

  • Container. Feel free to change the container. You can easily make this in other style containers. Some ideas include: tumblers, coffee cups or other size candy dishes.
  • Ribbon. We used a thin ribbon but you can use a thicker cut ribbon if you prefer.
  • Printable. Instead of gluing the printable to the jar, you can thread it through a ribbon and tie it around the container.
