The end of the school year is right around the corner, so I thought I’d put together a post with a few ideas for teacher gifts. Of course, a heartfelt thank you note is more than enough . . . but just in case you’re like me and love putting together a little something extra, I’ve got you covered!
My pictures aren’t the greatest, but you’ll get the idea 🙂
This was a little something I put together for Teacher Appreciation Week, but it could definitely be used for end of the year as well.
The tag is from Etsy. Honestly, the cute tag possibilities on Etsy are endless!
Emily’s last day of preschool is today (what?!). She has one main teacher and then FOUR helper teachers, which can really add up! This is what I put together for the helper teachers. I saw these boxes at our local Dollar Tree like two months ago and bought a bunch with end of the year gifts in mind. Each assistant will get the cute box with a cookie and a Dairy Queen gift card inside.
This is what I put together for the girls’ main teachers, and I’m really happy with it. You know I love a good theme, and this watermelon one is perfect for the start of summer! The watermelon beach towel and Watermelon Lime bubbly water are from Target, the reusable tote bag is from Joann Fabrics, and I bought a pack of ten thank you cards from the dollar store. They aren’t watermelon themed, but you can’t beat the price! I think the Dairy Queen gift card is the perfect touch because teachers can use it with their families to celebrate the start of summer . . . because nothing says “summer” like a DQ blizzard!
I also think it would be cute to roll up the beach towel, secure it with a ribbon, and slip a thank you card (with or without a gift card inside) underneath the ribbon.
This Tervis flamingo cup is so cute, and would be perfect with a note that said, “I’m tickled pink you were my teacher this year!”
And you can’t go wrong with a Swig Mug. These are my favorite for tea, coffee, and cocktails! I own three and love them all!
This confetti one would be cute with a tag that says, “It’s summer, start celebrating!”
I’m a sucker for a good tote bag, and this Hello Summer one is so cute!
These summery reusable grocery bags are adorable! They fold up small and would look so cute with a gift card attached to the top of the folded square. They come in a six pack, and it works out to be $2.83 per bag! This would be great for kiddos with multiple teachers, and as I type this I really wish I’d found it before I did all of my teacher gifts! haha I’ll file this away for next year.
Depending on what you know about the teacher, I think gift cards to Barnes and Noble, Ulta, or Sephora would be great too! Don’t get me wrong, I always enjoyed a good Target gift card, but chances were pretty good that it would get used for toilet paper or other household supplies. Gift cards to a more specialized store helps ensure that teachers use them on something for themselves!
Have a great week!
