Back to School Teacher Gifts
First, you will want to make the sugar scrub then you can add it to the mason jar for your teacher. The sugar scrub recipe is simple with only a few ingredients which makes it even better!
Pineapple Coconut Sugar Scrub Recipe
- 1 cup cane sugar
- 1 cup 6 oz package dried pineapple
- 1/2 cup coconut oil, room temperature
- Yellow food coloring (if desired)
Add the pineapple and coconut oil to a food processor. Process until pineapple has broken down into tiny pieces and combined with the coconut oil.
Then add in sugar and mix well. You will have a very thick sugar scrub that is just perfect for gift giving! I added in one to two drops of yellow food coloring as well to make the color more pronounced however this is completely optional. Once mixed, fill your jar with the sugar scrub. One recipe filled this pint-sized jar.

How to Make This Teacher Gift in a Jar
Start by adding your sugar scrub to your jar. I wanted the gift to look as much like a pencil as possible so I made an eraser top. Just use a small piece of pink fabric cut slightly larger than my mason jar lid with scissors.
I then added a small amount of fiber fill under the fabric and put the lid on the jar as shown below.
You will also need to print the pineapple tags, cut out using scissors, and punch a hole in the top. Then tie this around your jar using some yellow ribbon.
The jar itself reminds me of a pencil so it was perfect for this craft idea. The silver band of the lid along with the cute pink top resembles the eraser.
You can make these quick and easy back to school teacher gifts for all of your child’s teachers. It is an inexpensive way to show them some love as school gets back in session. And yes it is almost that time y’all! School will be starting before we know it!
