Last night I put together some teacher appreciation gifts. If you still need something for your kid’s teachers, I found a lot of great (free) printables. My favorite are from Living Locurto and made simple, inexpensive gifts.
I was stressing out, not wanting to give teachers food. I figure they are going to get a ton of things they may never want to eat or use. Then, I realized that I needed to do something that was meaningful — and that fit into my hectic schedule. I opted for Milano cookies in a sandwich bag, topped with a cute polka-dot header that says “thanks, you’re sweet.” On the reverse, I used a Sharpie pen to mark a handwritten message to each teacher with my child’s name. I have to tell you, these turned out super cute. I’m probably going to use them as a birthday party thank you next time I throw a party.
Even though this project was quick and simple, I want to give a shout out to all teachers (especially those who are teaching my children). They work so hard and truly care about our kids. Teachers, thank you for all you do!
Here’s a list of 35 free printables. Some of these looked great, but I didn’t have enough time to use them.
