Soapin' You'd Be My Teacher Gift

Nothing like last minute around here.

The first day of school is today!

My son is excited, because this is the teacher that he was hoping for.

(It's nice to have a happy kid and a great teacher!)

Last night I whipped out a lightening-quick,
first day of school gift 'cool' enough
for an 11 year old to give to his teacher.

(Actually, he told me it was lame...but he took it anyways.)

My daughter had this same teacher last year,
so I happen to know that she loves Bath & Body Works soaps.

These hand soaps are my favorite gift to give for every occasion--
teacher appreciation, Christmas, St. Patrick's Day, you name it.

Just in case you want to use this idea for next year.
Here's the printable.

Print out tag.  Sign the back, Tie tag onto the soap.
 Hand to the teacher.  Done!

Of course I follow my 6th grade kid into his class and take pictures.  (I'm not the only parent!)
Besides, it's really my last year being able to do this.
(6th grade is still in elementary school here.)

I watched my son take the gift out of his backpack and place it on his teacher's desk.

Ribbons undone, tag mangled, raindrop stained...

Why am I not surprised?

'Soap' it's a great school year for you and your family!
