If it is for the kids. If it is for the adults try little bowls from $ store.. add a small whisk also from $ store and an envelope of onion soup dip or some other kind of dip. Add card to say : let's dip into another school year together" it is cute and inexpensive.

Made the material look like a tissue with the tip at the top to wipe the tears. Was very cute and was small so would be easy to store away for years to come.
