Teacher Appreciation Ideas

There are so many cute, free printables available on the world wide web for teacher appreciation gifts.  I am so grateful that the talented graphic peeps out there share these sweet babies for free since it makes my life sooo much easier.  (Plus I really can’t resist a cute free printable.)

Here are the ones we’ve used so far for the bird’s teachers……

with links to the websites and PDFs.  :)
(printable from From Skip to my Lou)
you can type your own name before you print!  Cool.
I added forget-me-nots (get it) and a personalized garden marker to a cute pot from the dollar store.  Tied on a pretty ribbon.  Done!
You just print and add a Starbucks giftcard and a coffee sleeve and twine! How cute!
3.  “We need S’more teachers like you!”
(printable from Domesticated Lady)
All you need is a baggie, some mallows, graham crackers and chocolate!  Sweet!


4.  “Take NOTE you are one of my very favorite teachers!  Thanks for a great school year”
(printable from Skip to my Lou)
I added the colorful printable to a nice little note set and a set of fancy push pins that I found at Hobby Lobby with some baker’s twine.
(printable from Infarrantly Creative)
Just print onto a transparency, cut it out and stick it in a bottle of hand sanitizer or soap!
Add a cute ribbon.  Done.
So, there’s not an actual printable involved.  But you could use the same “take note” one from number 4 above.

It couldn’t be easier.  Pretty paper and an acrylic picture frame (and post-its)
Here are some more clever teacher gifts that I like but haven’t had the chance to use yet.  The bird has only been in school for two years!  So, I have time.  :)  Plenty of time.
