4 Ideas for Teacher Appreciation Gifts | Polk County Moms

Teacher Appreciation Week is upon us! Let’s face it, this year has been hard. Teachers have been faced with a daunting task. This year more than ever we need to say thank you for doing your best. 

We have some ideas for simple, inexpensive teachers’ gift ideas.

Some people find gift cards to be impersonal but I absolutely adore them. It’s easy to find, easy to use and you can get any denomination you want. You can easily get a $5 gift card to a local donut or coffee place. You can also get gift cards to book stores, online stores, and local stores. 

Flower, succulent

Flowers are a classic gift for any occasion. They are also really easy to find. Additionally, succulents are a great gift. They require very little care just because not everyone has a green thumb. I prefer to give faux succulents so teachers can decorate their space without having to remember to water the plant

Does your school or teacher have an Amazon or any wish list? This would be a great way to involve your child in picking the teacher’s gift.  Our class list consists of things like crayons, pencils, basic class supplies. There are even some things the teacher can use next year.

Nothing says you appreciate something more than a handwritten note. You can have your child draw or color in a card to give the teacher. You can also send an email to the principal or school letting them know how much you appreciate the teacher. This may seem old fashion but everyone loves knowing their efforts are valued and appreciated. 

We have some cute tags you can print and add to gifts. We also have a card you can print out and have your child color for their teacher. 

Click on each image and they will open up in another window where you can print them to use.
