I love this time of year. Fall is my favorite season and for me fall begins with back to school. I love school supplies and shopping for them. All those fresh, new folders, unsharpened pencils and blank notebooks make me happy! Even before I had kids, I would shop the sales to get great deals on office supplies this time of year.
If you have been reading this blog for a while, you may have found out that I have a weakness for pens. I am actually a bit of a pen snob.
Sharpies have to be one of my favorite types of pens/markers. They have so many colors, they are permanent, and they write beautifully. I really love the new Sharpie pens that don’t bleed through paper. They are awesome.
I know teachers love and use Sharpies just as much as I do. I think it can be a nice way to start off the year by giving the new teacher(s) a little gift to show our appreciation for how hard they work.
I was shopping at Staples, my go-to store for office and school supplies, because I knew I would find a huge selection of Sharpies. Had my husband and kids not been waiting in the car for me, I could have spent at least a half hour perusing all the pens. But this time, I knew exactly what I wanted – some regular Sharpie markers – so it didn’t take long to find what I needed. I got the assortment pack of 12 pens in both the fine and ultra-fine size. The ultra-fine ones are my personal favorite.
I came up with a cute printable to go along with my teacher gift. See below to print your own! (Six tags will print per sheet.)

Simply print the gift tags, cut out and attach to your markers with twine or ribbon!
Starting August 10, 2014 all Sharpie fine and Ultra Fine markers and highlighters will be on sale at Staples “while supplies last.”
Do you give a teacher gift at the beginning of the school year?
