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.

Great idea! Last week was when my daughter’s school celebrated “Teacher appreciation Week”. With my busy schedule I had to figure out low cost, creative things to do too. My daughter is in the 4th grade so she also has multiple teachers she wanted to acknowledge.
Monday: Their favorite candy bar (Cost around $1 each)
Tuesday: To Do List notepad ($1 each at Target)
Wednesday: Grocery Shopping List notepad ($1 each at Target)
Thursday: A personal Thank You note from my daughter about how they have impacted her life. (Thank You Notes $1.50)
Friday: $10 Starbucks gift card (All her teachers love coffee!)
My daughter said that all her teachers were thrilled with their gifts and we had fun trying to figure out what to get them.
