Today I’m sharing some fun teacher appreciation gifts for any budget!
Teaching really is one of the hardest, but most important jobs in the world! I taught high school for nine years, and I can tell you, it meant THE WORLD to me when my students and/or their parents told me my work made a difference in their lives! So as Teacher Appreciation Week and the end of the school year draw near, here are a few ideas for showing LOVE to all those amazing teachers out there!
Directions for Printable Tags:
Below each image there is a pdf and jpeg file for each printable.
Download and save the file to your computer.
Print file from your home computer or send to a print shop. They will look best printed on heavy white cardstock.
Attach the tag with ribbon or glue or tape it on a dowel rod or skewer.
Have your child sign the front and write a note to their teacher on the back.
I ALWAYS saved and cherished sweet notes from students!
Teacher Towel Gift
Thank your teachers by getting them pool/beach ready! You can find the printable tags for these towel gifts and suggestions on where to find towels and water bottles here.
Nacho Average Teacher Basket
Queso might be my love language! This basket is full of some yummy Tex Mex treats!
What you’ll need:
A basket or container
Queso and salsas
A fun drink in a colorful bottle, a kitchen towel, a mini pinata, colorful straws and plates
Thanks for Helping Me Grow
A plant or flowers is a great, budget friendly way to make your teacher smile!
What you need:
A plant, flowers, cactus, etc.
A dowel rod or skewer if you want to stick the tag in the dirt or you can tie it with ribbon on the pot
Gift Card Holder Printables
You may think gift cards are impersonal, but when I was a teacher, they were my FAVORITE gift! I appreciated them every single time! These cute holders add a personal touch.
They can all be found here.
One Smart Cookie
A sweet treat!
What You’ll Need:
Cookies, homemade or store bought
Plastic goodie bags
Ribbon or string and a hole punch
Lemonade out of Lemons
Thanks for making lemonade out of lemons! This has been SO true this year!!
I found these hand soaps at Bath and Body works that all look cute with this tag! They were 4 for $20 or 6 for $26.
You could also tie this around a cute bottle of lemonade or any lemon themed gift!
Queen of the Screen
With so many teaching virtually, I thought blue light blocking glasses might make a great gift!
Thank you for a FANtastic year!
These neck fans were one of my FAVORITE Amazon purchases last summer!
People looked at me funny when I pulled it out of my bag at the pool, but when I put it on them, they were sold! Haha! Three speeds, adjustable, lights up and charges via USB. Teachers that are outside for bus duty, recess, practices, etc. need one of these….and of course, for their own pool time this summer!
Available in several colors HERE.
You could also use this tag for other styles of portable fans. Sharing a few below:
