Teacher Appreciation Day is quickly approaching (as is the end of the school year, yikes!). I absolutely love my daughter’s Kindergarten teacher and want to give her something that will make her feel very loved and appreciated. I’ve been in the classroom a handful of times this year and it’s pretty amazing how she manages the kids, teaches them and cares so much about each one of them! I know I’d go crazy after about 1/2 a day in a classroom!
In my search for the perfect gift for Malea’s teacher I’ve put together a round-up of some of the best Teacher Appreciation gifts ideas!
Teacher Clock by Plucky Momo
Teacher relaxation bag by Skip to My Lou
Teacher supply cake from What’s Scrapping
A simple candle with a ribbon from My Frugal Adventures
A grill kit for a teacher that’s “On Fire!” from A Mom on Time Out
Potted pencil flowers from The Happy Scraps
Potted pansies from Chatter
Breakfast “bucket” from Lemonade Makin’ Mama
Starbucks gift cups from Hi Sugarplum!
Monogrammed notebooks from A Thoughtful Place
Gift card wreath found on Pinterest (original source unknown)
If you want more fun printables to go along with your gifts, you can find 35+ of the best FREE teacher appreciation printables over at Sweet Rose Studo.
I also polled my readers on Facebook to see what the teachers out there said are their favorite gifts that they’ve received over the years. Here are some of their favorites:
- Trip to the day spa
- Gifts that come from the child’s heart – notes, cards, pictures
- Gift cards so they can buy things they want/need
- Bath and Body Works hand sanitizer and a candle
- Chocolate covered strawberries
- A gift certificate to a nice restaurant
- One teacher said she received a Christmas decoration one year and now every year she remembers that child when she hangs it on her tree.
One thing they all said was no candy and no apple anything, they get a lot of that every year! Do you have any great teacher appreciation gift ideas? I’d love to hear them if you do!
