It’s Teacher Appreciation Week next week at my kids’ school and the end of the year is coming up fast,so I thought it might be helpful to put together some ideas on gifts or unique ways to say “Thank You” for all that our teachers do. While some teachers in my past posts have said that it gets overwhelming to receive handmade gifts over the years from so many students, I still think there are some nice ways to make something special for a teacher that is thoughtful but they can really use it, as well.
I like getting the kids involved in either choosing or making the gift for their teachers. Here are some of the easiest, most inexpensive, and yet most impactful gifts that I discovered that looked fun to make with my kids.
Plant & Printable
Amy at LivingLocurto.com came up with a very simple and impactful teacher’s gift with a cute gift tag that you can download for free. Head over to her site to see how easy it is.
Scented Gift Basket
The Eighteen25 blog is offering another free printable gift tag to go with their idea to create a Strawberry Soap Gift Basket.
Teacher’s Ade Gift
Lisa Storms created a fun gift idea using those see-through plastic ice tea cups and attaching a flag note to the straw. You can throw in some Crystal Light or Ice Tea Packets as well as a note from your child inside. Very simple and very impactful!
