EEK!! It’s a big week around here. I’m getting ready to head to SNAP Conference this weekend, and I’m excited about that (if you’ll be there, I can’t wait to see you, I hope you’ll introduce yourself!), and….maybe you noticed, but there is a little bit of a new look around here. I switched over to WordPress. I hope I can get it all figured out! Anyway, that is why this post is late getting up today. But it’s all good, right?
Teacher Appreciation week is coming up soon! I know at our school, it is in two weeks, and I think that is when it is for most people. Today I want to share over 20 simple Teacher Appreciation Gift ideas with you. The majority of them have printables to go with them, and that makes it that much easier to give a gift to your childs teacher. Some of these were made to be for the beginning of school, end of school, or for teacher appreciation week, but I think almost any of them could be used for teacher appreciation.
I don’t know any teacher that couldn’t use some Sharpies. See the post and grab the printable here.
The Diary of Daves Wife shares this fun idea. Print out the tag, grab a cute cup and you are done! Find it here.
Do you know what your kids teachers favorite drinks are? If not, ask them, then print out this tag and attach it and you are done. So simple. Find the printable here.
Who wouldn’t love some fun washi tape! Just Between Friends is sharing the fun printable to go along with it. You could use this printable for anything that is sticky! See it here.
There are so many ways that you can give a cup or drink to teachers. Grab some cups from the dollar store, attach the tag, and you are on your way. Find this fun printable tag at The Pinning Mama.
I gave these to my kids teachers the last couple of years, and they LOVED them. Sometimes teachers end up having to purchase supplies like this, using money out of their own pocket, so I think they appreciate these types of gifts. A couple of years ago, I gave one to my sons teacher, and she still has the can with markers in it, and uses it in her classroom. Another child has her for a teacher this year tho, so I’ll have to come up with something new for her. See the tutorial here.
Crafting in the Rain also shared a fun Washi Tape gift. I love that she added washi to the tag. Grab the printable she shares, here. This printable could also be used with anything that is sticky.
I get to help with the bulletin boards in one of my sons classes and his teachers good stapler broke, so she doesn’t have one that works well for this. When I saw this printable at Desert Chica Ramblings, I thought “that is what I should do for her!” See this project here.
I thought this was a fun gift idea. I got to go help with the Halloween Party for one of my boys classes, and I took pictures of all the kids, it would be fun to put them on a disk, print out this fun tag from Bits of Everything and give it as a gift. Find the post here.
I think using Mason Jars makes everything cuter! You could put ANYTHING in one of these jars, add the cute tag, and you’d be done. Find these cute tags at The Country Chic Cottage.
This printable to go with Post it notes was my favorite teacher gift last year. I asked a few of my kids teachers what some of their favorite items were, and then I made printables to go along with most of them. One of the teachers told me that she loved the super sticky post it notes. Click here to find the printable.
I thought that this gift basket from My Sister’s Suitcase was so cute! Grab some apple flavored items, and put them in a cute basket, and you are good to go. See it here.
Giving seeds to a teacher with this cute printable from Plucky Momo is such a fun idea! The teachers wouldn’t even have to plant them until they are ready to and have time.
This printable from Your Home Based Mom could be used with so many different gifts, not just with an apple. I don’t know any teacher that would turn down an apple that looked like this yummy one though.
How fun is this printable bookmark from Positively Splendid? I think it is adorable and I think any teacher would love to get one from a student. Find it here.
A few years ago, (before I knew how to share printables!) I put these fun Reeses Pieces gifts together for my boys teachers. They were quick and simple, and the teachers liked them. Find the post here.
This pencil bouquet is still one of my favorite projects! It turned out cute, and the teachers loved it! See it here.
Everyday is an Occasion shares this printable to go along with some popcorn. You could even just attach it to a bag of unpopped microwave corn. Easy peasy!
Printables like this one from Crazy Little Projects, that play on words, are my favorite.
So this gift was put together for the first week of school, but I’m pretty sure that any teacher could use some chocolate and caffeine for the last few weeks of the school year. You could print out the printable and cross out first and add last if you wanted to. Or, just head on over to My Sister’s Suitcase and pin this for the beginning of next year.
This is a SIMPLE one! Grab any kind of treat (if you can find out the teachers favorite kind, that makes it even better), print the tags, tie them on with some twine, and send them to school with the kids. Grad the printable here.
I have so many of these treat bags, I really should print out some of these tags from U-Create and give them to the teachers this year. Simple and Cute!
Now you are all ready to make sure that you kids teachers know that they are appreciated! Oh, and don’t forget those teachers that sometimes are overlooked, like the special ed, or speech teachers. At the end of the school year, I also like to give gifts to the teachers aides, office staff, bus drivers, etc. If you’d like to see some ideas for those, you could find them here.
