Customize a bag for your favorite teacher

Heidi here. I wanted to put together a gift for a new teacher, but I couldn't find anything on the internet about what to "stuff" it with, so I thought this information might be handy for some of you.

I ended up purchasing and personalizing this bag.

I also selected the optional pocket organizer, so I wanted to stuff the bag with things a teacher might be able to use. I put in some gel pens, red pens, personalized note cards, personalized notebooks, cute paper clips that I found from Walmart, a cute clipboard that I got from Staples, and a tiny stapler from Walmart.

Some other ideas that I didn't use were a gift card to Stones School Supply (check where you may have a school supply store in your area), special scissors with different cutting edges (you can get them from Walmart, Target, or any office store).

Also, if you wanted to personalize the clipboard, get a Sharpie and start using some fancy calligraphy to personalize with the teachers name and perhaps an upbeat saying.

This is what the bag I gifted looked like stuffed:

Hope this helps you shop for your favorite teacher 😀


  1. What a great idea! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Cleaver idea and gift. A personalized bag could be given to so many filled with items just for them. Thank you for sharing.

  3. I always enjoy these posts that spur my creativity and offer me "how to" do it.

  4. Great idea! I'll have to try this for me. :-)
