It’s time for unique but easy teacher gift ideas! With the end of the year looming, it is time to say thanks to various people – most notably teachers. However, don’t forget to say thanks to coaches, dance teachers, tutors, bus drivers, school administration, and the PTO president too.
I’m always looking for unique, yet easy, ways to say thanks. The end of the year is always so busy with performances, shows, assemblies and more. So hunting and searching and shopping is not on the schedule.
However, on my Pinterest Board “Teacher Thanks” I think I’ve pulled together some thoughtful ways to say ‘thank you’ at a moments notice. As you make these kudos for the end of the year, make a few extra. You might find you need one during the summer too for camp counselors, babysitters and more! So it is good to have a back-stash.
Easy Teacher Gift Ideas
I like this one because teachers always need notes and paper. So it is a charming little thank you. While you could do a fancy printable, it is also fine to write a little note too! You could even make your own note cards with paper stock from the office or art supply store with pictures of the school, from a drawing from your child, or with the recipient’s name on it. With software and the supplies, you could customize it if you had the extra time. This is also a good one for playdates where you want to say thanks to the hostess parent!
I like this as, again, it is easy but useful and sweet. Have your child’s handprint as the cutout for a personalized touch.
Unique Teacher Gift Ideas
This is also quick and easy. Make an extra to give to a UPS driver, mailperson or anyone that also needs a mid-year pat-on-the-back!
Whether you have small baggie of cookies or a whole store bought pack, this is a sweet way to say thanks. If worried about allergies, you can easily find school safe versions. One brand I like is “Enjoy Life” found at most grocery stores or here (affiliate) on Amazon.
Need some more ideas. I have a lot on my Pinterest Board so check them out!
