A few years ago, I put together a simple back to school teacher gift idea, and you guys loved it! It was all things PINK with a cute tag that read “I’m Tickled Pink That You’re My Teacher”. It was so super simple to put together, and so many of you have shared pictures of your own tickled pink gifts. I love seeing them!
This year, I recreated the gift so I wanted to show you an updated example of this sweet idea along with a new free printable gift tag! Your children’s teachers are going to be so excited. Who doesn’t love lots of happy, pink goodies on the first day of school? Right?

What to include inside? ALL THINGS PINK, of course! I’ve put a little list below, but you can find so many items at Target, the grocery store, wherever!

Tickled Pink Teacher Gift Tag
Just download the “Tickled Pink Gift Tag” (click that link to the right and save to computer). Print it on a card-stock paper, cut, and attach on!
This is such a simple and easy back to school teacher gift idea. I hope it’s inspired you when you’re on the search for the perfect gift for your child’s new teacher.
ALSO, if you want a way to find out your teacher’s favorite items for gifting little things throughout the year, then head over HERE to get a free printable you can give your teacher at the start of the school. I did this last year with Blakely’s teacher, and found it so helpful to refer to throughout the year!
I love the phrase “tickled pink” and it’s the perfect phrase for this teacher gift idea. I actually think you could use this same phrasing for bridesmaids gifts, flower girl gifts, neighbors, etc. “I’m tickled pink that you’re my neighbor!” – See? So cute!
I’ve also put a few OTHER ideas below in case you want more back to school teacher gift inspiration!
