Teacher Gift Ideas

Need some new teacher gift ideas? With Teacher Appreciation and the end of school just around the corner, I have gathered some time-saving ideas over the years to help you avoid frustration during this busy time of the year. I have compiled a few cute ideas below with all the details you will need to create a fun and exciting way to show your appreciation for your child’s teacher.

Gift Idea: Pencil Gift Box

Here’s a simple end-of-school-year present idea for your child’s teacher. Create a pencil box and fill it with a gift card and a few small items suitable for summer use. Decorate it with lovely ribbon and add an adorable printable tag from EvergreenAshDesigns. Fasten the pencil container to the adorable classroom book “Our Class is a Family” for a meaningful gift that your child will be excited to give to their teacher.

Gift Idea: Teacher Wine Gift

Here’s a creative gift idea for teacher appreciation week. I found these large pencil gift boxes on Amazon and surprisingly they are large enough to hold a bottle of wine. Fill it with crinkle paper, place the bottle on top, add a gift card, and finish it off with a charming tag to let the teacher know what’s inside. Remember, wine isn’t a must-have; you can also include the teacher’s favorite gift cards, snacks, non-alcoholic drinks, and handmade gifts.

Gift Idea: Teacher Appreciation Flower Pot

Flower pot with post-it notes, apple gift card, paper mate pens, and a cute bookmark.

Begin by identifying your teacher’s preferred flower. If your school operates similarly to my children’s school, they likely distribute a Teacher’s Favorite List at the start of the year. Retrieve this list from the depths of your children’s school folders and discover their favorite flower. After rounding up the other items, you will glue or tape them to the bamboo skewers. Then put the skewers down into the flower pot and then add all the ribbon and fun banners you would like. These adorable banners came from @GraceCollectiveShop.
