Pencil Mason Jar Gift Idea for Teachers

School is back in session! Head to As You Wish to paint a pencil mason jar and fill it with pencils to give to the teacher. Your child’s teacher will love you if you show up with pre-sharpened ticonderoga pencils, trust me! You could also fill the jar with flowers, gum, candy or even a Starbucks gift card. I don’t know a teacher out there who wouldn’t appreciate a gift card for caffeine! What’s your go to back to school gift?
