Teacher Appreciation Week: 5 Tokens of Gratitude That Say ‘Thank You’

Sharing is caring!

Teacher Appreciation Week is a time to honor and thank the dedicated teachers who educated our children. These are just a few small tokens to show our appreciation for their grace and kindness.

Teachers are a special kind of person in my eyes. Patient, gracious and kind to our kids. If you’re looking for sweet ways to show your gratitude while on a small budget, I got you!

Quick Tip: Ask your room parent for a list of your teacher’s favorite things. Usually at the beginning of the year, teacher’s fill out a quick form with favorite snacks, drinks, color, hobbies, etc.

5 Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas

Gift Idea #1: Stationary

For this one, I grabbed some office supplies from Dollar Tree, along with some fabric and ribbon.

Wrap them up with some decorative ribbon and a thank you note! Gift card and flowers optional.

If you’re gifting to multiple teachers, break open packs of notepads and pens to help save money.

Gift Idea #2: Thanks for a Picture Perfect Year!

  • popcorn bucket (The Dollar Tree has these in the party section as favors)
  • your teacher’s favorite candy
  • popcorn (DT has name brand, 3 per box)

Tie together with ribbon and add this printable tag. Gift card optional.

Gift Idea #3: I couldn’t have picked a better teacher

  • 2 pack small pots
  • jar with flower frog (I grabbed a 2 pack of decorative lids from DT which is basically a flower frog, that fits on small mason jars)
  • small bouquet of flowers
  • free printable tag
  • gift card optional

Gift Idea #4: Spring Themed

  • decorative purse vase (Target Bullseye)
  • favorite snack
  • small stationary or word search book
  • pens
  • chalkboard watering can tag (Dollar Tree craft section)
  • gift card optional

Gift Idea #5: Cricut Fans

  • acrylic milk containers (Target Bullseye)
  • vinyl flowers cut with Cricut
  • pens
  • decorative ribbon
  • gift card optional

Most of these are so simple and can be personalized based on your teacher’s likes. The milk containers with spring flowers can be repurposed as a cut flower vase. Or you can add the teacher’s name and it can be a pen holder on their desk.

I hope you enjoyed these gift ideas and it helped spark creativity for you to spoil your kids’ teachers this year!
