Year after year, I struggle with finding the perfect gifts for Bunbun’s teachers. Everyone always seems to give the same gifts time and time again and I try my best to be unique and give gifts they have not have received in the past. I did spend my time looking at these 37 Creative Gift Ideas For College Professors to see if I could get any inspiration, but I think I’ll save that for when Bunbun is a lot older (and is actually at college).

This year, I decided to create a fun (but easy) teacher emergency kit, which I am excited to share with you today. It’s an excellent gift for your child’s teacher; whether it be for teacher appreciation week, a birthday or just because. It’s also great for the older kids that may have a locker at school.


I had an idea of what I wanted to include in my kit, so I went to Walgreens to pick up a few items. While on the gum and candy aisle, the new Extra® 35-stick packs caught my eye. They come in two different flavors; Spearmint and Polar Ice®. Both in a small plastic, yet durable type case which is convenient and can totally be recycled and re-purposed once the pack is gone.


I knew I was going to include gum in my kit and since these come with more gum than the standard packs, it was a no-brainier. I grabbed two so I could “Give Extra, Get Extra.” One for the kit and one for me, of course!


Here’s what I included in my kit:

  • Extra® 35-stick pack
  • On-the-go stain remover wipes
  • Stain remover pen
  • Disinfectant spray
  • Protein Bar
  • Tissues
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Lotion
  • Hair Spray
  • Wrinkle release spray
  • Band-aids
  • Pain Reliever
  • Mouthwash
  • Toothbrush
  • Toothpaste
  • Deodorant
  • Nail File
  • Lip Balm
  • Hair Ties
  • Gift Card


Once I had everything I wanted to include inside the box, I created these teacher emergency kit labels, cut them out and attached them to card stock with my glue stick. Just make sure to get some good stuff for the kit too. Getting proper Hand Sanitizer is important, as one example. If you get weak stuff it won’t work well enough.


Each printable is 8.5?x11?

Note: Printables/Images are for personal use only. Not for resale.


I then used some adhesive to adhere the label to the plastic so it wouldn’t fall off. With that personal touch, I gifted it to one of Bunbun’s teachers.

Show your child’s teacher that you care with a teacher emergency kit!


What will you include in your teacher emergency kit?

    I love this!!! I’ve made similar kits for my daughter’s teachers, but you included so many things I hadn’t thought of! #client

      Thank you Sarah! I love the versatility of this kit. It can really be made for anyone and we all have those emergency moments where we could really use something from this kit.

    • Jessica says

      Hi Tina! I would probably keep most of the items in the box, aside from the super girly things and maybe replace them with some things such as peanuts, candy bars, beef jerky or a Cliff Bar. Thankfully, many of the items in the box are unisex, so you don’t have to swap out too much. Good Luck and Happy Creating!

    I’ve been teaching for 16 years & have never had a lot like this…. It’s so brilliant! Thank you so much for sharing!

    Hi – the link to download keeps sending me to Mothers Day flowers printable. Could you help me?

    • Jessica says

      Hi! I just updated the link. It should be good now. Let me know if you have any issues. Thanks!

    I did this for my son’s teachers twenty-five years ago. I knew I had a hot when I gave it again the next year for the teachers and I heard, “Oh I was hoping I would get this!” My kits included much of the same things plus – cough drops, aspirin, sewing kit, eye glass repair kit, change for the pop machine and red pens.

    Hi Jessica – I thought this would be great for a student teacher gift, but when I tried to print the file the store asked for a Copyrigt release. I’ve never been asked for this in the past. Do I need to send them something different?

    • Jessica says

      Hi Monica! Maybe show them the site? It’s noted that Printables/Images are for personal use only. You should be able to print, unless you’re mass producing, then they’re just doing their job in protecting me as the designer.

      • Monica says

        Thank you! I will see what they say. I only requested one copy.

        • Jessica says

          Good Luck! I’d try somewhere else if they don’t do it for you. ?

    Fabulous! Being a retired teacher, I have been thinking I
    want to do something special for my first grand daughter’s pre K teacher! Thank you so much for this wonderful idea!
