The Pin Junkie: Easy Teacher Appreciation Gifts

Easy Teacher Appreciation Gifts

Teacher appreciation week is May 6 - 10.  These are some really easy and inexpensive little gifts you can make and give to a teacher to let them know how much you appreciate everything they do.  I made these appreciation gifts for the teachers that I work with.  It's always nice to get little goodies in your mailbox!

Embellished Post-It notes
Easy Teacher Appreciation Gifts

To make these embellished Post Its, just cut some scrapbook paper long enough to fit over the front and back of a stack of Post It notes.  Peel the back off of the last Post It in the stack and stick it to the scrapbook paper.  Then fold the scrapbook paper over the stack.  I added coordinating letters for monograms to personalize each one.


Candy Bag Topper

This printable bag topper is free on Teachers Pay Teachers!
Just fill a bag with candy, print out the tag, and staple it together!


"Extra" Special Teacher Gift

Put a pack of Extra gum in a baggie, tie with a ribbon, 


"Hanitizer"

I saw this ecard on Pinterest and it made me smile.
I printed a few and attached each one to a bottle of hand sanitizer.

  16. I have to tell you I was going to write about not making gifts for teachers as we get so many things. But your ideas are really original and inexpensive, not to mention useful.

    I would still like to suggest that if parents are looking for great gifts for teachers, they might think of getting a gift certificate to the favourite bookstore (ebooks are good too). So many new teachers (especially primary school teachers)have to buy their own resources like fun children's books, posters, etc, right down to glue sticks and colourful pencils. The schools do not often provide funds for such things so the poor new teachers (the ones that make the lower salaries too) are burdened with the cost of educational resources in the years when they have so many other bills to pay like student loans.

    Thanks for your consideration and sorry to hijack your blog for a moment.
