25 Teacher Gift Ideas

Teacher Appreciation week starts May 6th – 10th and I am all into it this year. While I was doing my student teaching I had a mom who made each day of the week special for her childrens teachers and it really made an impact. If I can get my stuff together this week Coulter’s teachers will be receiving one of these adorable tote bags (tutorial by Missouri Star Quilt Company) on that Thursday (we have a 4 day school week). I had better get my butt in gear because I have yet to start. Yikes!

If your not up to making these fairly simple tote bags that’s just fine. I understand and I may have taken on a little to much but like I said I am very excited. Below are 25 teacher gift ideas that vary on cost, abilities and personal tastes for that matter. I hope you treat your child’s teacher to something fun for Teacher Appreciation week. It doesn’t have to be anything big but let’s face it, teachers spend almost as much time with our kids each week as we do. Scary thought right!

    love this list! I am really happy to see that coconut oil scrub on here because it was revised to be just white sugar and coconut oil. How easy is that!? Super easy gift to make – and not just for teachers!

    • Brandy

      I was thinking about making some to put into the tote bags that I am making because it is simple and can be made quickly. I am sure it will be a go to gift for me for baby showers as well. Thank you for the recipe.

  • Great ideas for Teacher Appreciation. The coconut scrub sounds delightful! Visiting from Monday Funday.
    Have a great week!

    • Brandy

      I like that the coconut scrub only has two ingredients, how simple is that. I am thinking that I will be making a couple of batches to be included in my son’s teachers tote bags I am still getting made.

  • Sandy VanHoey

    wow, such great ideas and I had to stop seeing the Best Ever Buckeye Brownies. We have to get something for my grandsons teacher for the end of the year so I’ll be showing this to my daughter

  • Trish @ Uncommon

    This is such a great collection! I am so loving those neon dipped flower pots! Thanks for sharing at Monday Funday!

    Take care,

      The neon dipped flower pots are unique and would be a fun talking about piece in the classroom for the rest of the year.
