Back to School Teacher’s Gift: Hand Soap Adorable & Affordable with Free Gift Tag

It’s that time again! Time for bookbags, lunchboxes, and school supplies. My son will be heading back to school in about two weeks. Yes, we do go back to school very early down here on the Gulf Coast. Every year, I like to give his teachers a little back to school gift that’s affordable. Since you don’t know the teacher’s likes before you’ve even met her, it’s good to get something that you know they need and can use. Two years ago, the month after I started this blog, I found adorable bottles of hand soap with a cute fall “kiddie” look at Bath & Body Works. I snatched them up to use as back to school teacher’s gifts. Well today I’m sharing some brand new free printable tags that you can use on you adorable and affordable back to school teacher’s gift!

Orange vanilla swirl hand soap from Bath & Body Works

I had to update the gift tags that I shared a few years ago because I was so new to blogging and creating printables. I looked back and cringed! Not to mention that when I printed the tags, I was out of white cardstock, so I had to use a light yellow, slightly darker than cream. Blah! These bottles of hand soap are still just as adorable though!

Supplies for an affordable back to school teacher’s gift:

  • white cardstock paper
  • bottle of hand soap
  • scissors
  • baker’s twine or thin ribbon
  • hole punch
  • printer
  • download of my printable

“Fall” Back to School

For personal use only. Feel free to download these free designs and print them or use on your Cricut projects for your own use at home. They are not for commercial use, not to be placed on items for sale. That helps me keep these printables, SVGs, and PNGs coming to you for free! Another note: you will not my logo overlay on your downloaded design. It is there to keep people from downloading the images straight from Google, or others from stealing them to use on their site. Thanks for understanding! Feel free to share this post for your friends and family to make their own projects with this design!

I remade the same “fall” back to school gift tag in two designs and created two different colors for one of them. I think the pumpkin and leaf design would be great for teachers who teach younger grades, and the wispy leaf design would be good for older ages. They both work great for the Bath & Body Works lines of fall soaps.

“Soapin'” for a Great Year Free Printables

Justs in case you can’t find soap with leaves or a fall theme, I’ve created some cute “soapin'” printables. Again, no logo will be on your download.

Assemble the Affordable Back to School Teacher’s Gift

Print the free gift tag of your choice and cut it to size. I created the images as 3.5×5’s, so if you’d like a different size, resize before printing. Cut off the excess paper, then punch a hole in the corner. On my first bottles of hand soap, I used baker’s twine to tie the gift tag onto them, but I think I would’ve liked ribbon better. Cut a length of ribbon off and pass it through the punched hole. Tie it around the soap, and boom! You’ve got a super cute affordable back to school teacher’s gift idea!
