DIY Homemade Teacher Gift

This is a fun, easy, and super cute way to thank your teacher for a year of hard dedication to the kids in her class- and your kids can do all the mixing and measuring! This is a great way to get your kids involved in making a lovely gift for their favorite teachers, for a homemade present they will cherish.

I love this simple DIY bath soaking salt idea for gifts!

I am LOVING all of JOANN Fabric and Craft Stores new patterned mason jars and chalk tags- and I had to make a present that centered around them. They are so fun and pretty- they instantly dress up gifts!

You’ll Need:

• Printed Mason Jars
• Jar rings and Lids
• Chalk Jar Tags
• White Paint Pen
• Epsom Salt
• Baking Soda
• Essential oils


• Food coloring
• Flowers, potpourri mix-ins

Love this easy gift idea- bath soaking salts with super cute mason jars and gift tags!

In a large bowl, mix to combine: 6 parts coarse sea salt; 3 parts epsom salts, to soothe tired muscles and reduce inflammation; and 1 part baking soda, to soften waters and alleviate skin irritation.

Mix a few drops of essential oils into the salts, stir to distribute evenly.

Optional- if you’d like a lightly colored bath salt, add a few drops of food coloring, until you get the color you’d like- and add any flowers or potpourri elements you’d like (I added rosebuds and lavender for a pretty and relaxing bath).

Quick and easy bath soaking salts make a great teacher gift!

Add the mixture to jars, and top them with a metal ring and lid. The Cannery area in JOANN stores even has cute chalkboard lids for jars- but I wanted to write little nametags out of these adorable chalk mason jar cutouts.

I simply write out my kid’s teacher’s initial on each tag, and made some heart and swirly decorations around it. You can use chalk- but I wanted a permanent paint, so I used a white paint marker so it looked like chalk.

My kids had so much fun making these- and can’t wait to hand them out!

Teacher gift so easy your kids can make it- DIY bath soaking salts !
