12 Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas

Sharing is caring!

It is that time- Teacher Appreciation Week is May 6-10 this year and I have some awesome ideas and ways for you to say thank you to your childs teachers.

All of these teacher appreciation gift ideas are easy to make. You do not have to be super crafty person. Many of them come with  free printables.

Often times you give one gift a day to your teacher for the week. Sometimes your school will have a theme each day and some schools just go with the flow and you bring whatever you want.

Any teacher would love to receive any of these as a gift. I even share with you step by step how to make each of these gift ideas.

  1. As a teacher in the middle school, teacher appreciation day never makes it to me. I love all of these little gifts and I know teachers love getting little things to say thank you. In the early years, when a student has just one or two teachers, it’s easy but by middle school, with 10 teachers, it’s just too much. Sad because some of these are sooooooo cute!

  2. I love the smores idea! What a great collection of idea to show how much teachers are appreciated!
