It’s hard to believe that the end of the school year is upon us. Wasn’t it just yesterday that I dropped my kindergartner off for his first day of school? Even harder for me to believe that after 6 years home with my boys, I’ve got one year left before my husband is going to make me get a real job again. Our youngest will start school in just a little over a year now…yikes!
This week is teacher appreciation week at schools. So I’ve been checking out sites like Pinterest and doing some brainstorming for creative gifts for my sons’ teachers. They’ve both taught for many years, so I know they’ve gotten a lot of stuff over the years. I want to do something unique; something creative; something they will remember my sons by.
Here’s my list of top, easy and creative teacher gifts for this year.
Thank them throughout the WeekAt my son’s preschool, they are celebrating Teacher Appreciation Week with small gifts (and clever sayings) throughout the week. Each day is a small gift with a theme to it.
Here are some of the great ideas:
Gifts to Avoid
CostTeacher gifts don’t have to cost you a lot of money either; most of the time the teacher probably isn’t really expecting gifts. In the past I’ve spent around $10-15 on teacher gifts. If you’re giving a DIY gift, you may spend a lot less. After all, it’s the thought that counts.
Something else to consider when it comes to cost is thinking about doing a classroom gift from all students in the class. Maybe you could send a note home with the students requesting donations to buy a certain gift or a gift card. Or perhaps if you are friends with parents in the class, a group of you could go in on a gift together.
At my house, we’re doing a smaller gift this week for Teacher Appreciation Week, and then I’ll spend a little more on an end of the school year gift.
