I am sure I’m not the only one that feels 100% exhausted from the school year from packing lunches, fundraisers, after school activities and school projects (my daughter’s economics project almost did me in). With that being said, we MUST scrounge up the energy to find fabulous gifts for our teachers because THEY DESERVE IT!! I searched high and low on the internet to find ya’ll some (in my opinion) fabulous gift ideas.
First off are printable gift card holders. #3 is by far my FAVORITE!!! I mean who in their right mind wouldn’t LOVE a gift card to a Mexican restaurant…hello teachers need margaritas after putting up with our kids!
The next options I’ve got for ya’ll are some “Sussys” (a Southern term for a small gift/token of affection) to accompany cash (which I prefer because I HATE the “activation” fees on a gift card) or a gift card. I don’t like giving just cash or a gift card because it feels so impersonal to me. Personally I picked up the precious pineapple tea towels for my kids’ teachers…I mean they’re perfect (1) because they’re only $2 which means more cash for the teachers and (2) they say “Enjoy the summer days”!
I’m also LOVING these personalized Starbucks inspired coffee mugs!!!
11 (IF you KNOW the teacher well enough I’d choose this option with a great bottle of wine or champs) 12 13 (I would attach this adorable printable and a mani/pedi gift card to these fabulous summer slides)
While I was doing my research I read that teachers really enjoy receiving handwritten notes from their students. I also plan on including a handwritten note from myself expressing how much I truly appreciate them.
I’ve included some fabulous printables from my favorite Etsy store Paper Etiquette . Make sure to hop over to her store to see more of her precious Teacher Appreciation printables.
I hope that this has helped elevate some stress from trying to find THE perfect gift for your teacher(s). They honestly deserve to be celebrated for more than just one week of the year.
