Teacher Appreciation ideas

Thank you for not being "impatient" with us this year

Impatient PlantPlant a simple impantien into a bright colored plastic pot. Tape a card onto a pencil and stick in dirt. Tie a ribbon. Cute and witty.

You're a sweet Light in our lifeLantern – We bought a lantern from Target and fill with chocolate covered pretzels.  Attach a card with a reference to the teacher being a “light” in your life.

Print mock starbucks labels for a quick teacher treat Personalized Starbucks treats  I bought cups from the dollar store and a package of chocolate covered shortbread from costco. I personalized these labels with each teacher’s name from this link. Printed them on sticker paper, cut and attached. Great way to start any day!teacher appreciation tea gift printable  Tea Jar Fill a canister with tea and then print this label from  www.lifecreated.com

Ask your child what they love about their teacher (or dad for Father's Day) and this site will automatically turn it into a heart shaped poem. 15 other Ideas for Teacher Appreciation gifts Personalized Heart Poem – I asked my child what they love about their teacher, typed in his reply on this link , and it generates a heart shaped card. Print and give. You can never go wrong with a child’s sweet words.

Say it with socks – ” I am Blessed and Grateful for you!” – These socks from Notes to Self are my obsession at the moment. Here’s an affiliate link hand picked strawberriesHand Picked strawberries – with a cute tag “I couldn’t have picked a better teacher”(from Dixie Delights).

teacher appreciation gift idea Gift Card – “A teacher can’t survive on apples alone…” – I saw this months ago as a Christmas gift but think it’d be just as cute for a year end gift.

cake pops

Cake Pop Stand – after packaging each cake pop in plastic bags from Michaels, we wrapped a styrofoam rectangle in wrapping paper, stuck them in, and made a sign. Great Grab and Go treat when lots of teachers are involved.

  1. These are the best ideas for teachers! When I was teaching, I always got candles or soap. I was very appreciative, but these take hardly no time at all and show some thought. (or at least some perusal on pinterest)

    Also, I love knowing when I come to your sight. I love the feet at the top. I have visited your site (from Pinterest) a few times in the past couple of days. Love your site!

  2. These are great ideas. Found link on Pinterest. A teacher friend of mine said they would prefer to get something like this other than a gift card.

  3. These are incredible idea’s!! These will be used throughout the year, as our school has a teacher appreciation day, about every other month – instead of a week long event. Thank you – Thank you – Thank you!!!!!

  4. I love the lanterns filled with pretzels. Would love to make some similar but can’t find lanterns. What section in target or did you get online
    Thanks, Ethel
