Teacher gifts don’t have to be complicated or expensive in order to be appreciated! I’ve made giving a teacher gift quick and easy with these cute printables.

School is starting up soon again for my kids and to help show my appreciation for their teachers, I wanted to give a few gifts that they can use in their classroom. With all the school supplies on sale right now, it’s a great time to grab a few extra items to help them out during the school year.
I’ve created two sets of printables: one can be printed off from your computer and cut out by hand (or with a 3″ circle punch) and the other can be opened as an SVG file and cut out with your cutting machine (I used my Silhouette). Each page has three cute sayings:
- Hand Sanitizer: I’ll do my best to give you a hand and keep the classroom clean.
- Pencils: I’m excited to start the year off “write” with you as my teacher.
- Dry Erase Markers: I know it’s going to be a “re-mark-able” year.
If you are printing straight from your computer to your printer, you just need to download the PDF (free download), open the PDF and print it out. You can then cut it out with scissors (or a 3″ circle punch if you happen to have one).
You can download the free PDF by entering your name and email below. It will then be sent to you via email.
If you are using a cutting machine to cut the circles out, you will need to download the SVG file (free download) and open it in your design space/studio. Since I use a Silhouette Cameo, I will share the step by step instructions below for print setup:
- Open your Silhouette Studio software.
- Select File > Open and find the SVG file you’ve saved to your computer.
- Click on the Page Setup Panel (right hand side) and select the Page Setup icon (it should be the first one).
- Choose the Letter option from the Page Size drop down.
- In the same panel, click on the Registration Marks icon and make sure the Style is listed as ‘Type 1’.
- Go to File > Print, then select your printer. (Make sure you’ve loaded your cardstock into the printer.)
- Once the labels have printed out, you place the paper on the cutting mat and load it into your machine.
- In the Studio software, select the Send option.
- Make the following selection: Material > Cardstock, Plain. (I did not make any changes to the default settings.)
- Click the ‘Send’ button at the bottom. (Feel free to do a test print prior to cutting the labels out if your blade is dull or if you just want to double check it will cut through.)
You can download the free SVG file by entering your name and email below. It will then send you the file via email.
*NOTE* Colors can vary a little from screen to screen. This means that the color you see on your computer may look a little different when you print it out. However, there shouldn’t be too much variation.
Once you’ve got your labels cut out, attach them to the corresponding gift. To attach it to the hand sanitizer bottle, I just punched a hole in the top and tied it to the bottle with baker’s twine.
And there you have it! Some super cute, fun, easy and practical gifts that any teacher will appreciate!
