As we near the end of the school year and National Teacher Appreciation Week in May, I bet you’re on the hunt for unique teacher gift ideas. Today we’re sharing 20 easy craft ideas and free printables to help you thank your child’s teacher for all of his or her hard work this year. These special gift ideas would also work great for back-to-school, the holidays or a teacher’s birthday.
The end of a school year is always a little bittersweet, isn’t it? You’ve gotten to know your child’s teacher over the course of the year. He or she has poured countless hours into teaching your child reading, writing and arithmetic. In fact, over the last 8 or 9 months they’ve probably spent more time with your child than you have! It’s time to say thank you for all the time, talent and love they’ve shared with your child this year.
We are always on the look out for unique and special teacher gift ideas to show our appreciation. A few years ago we surveyed our readers and gathered five ways to show your appreciation at the end of the school year. Since then we’ve been constantly pinning clever and inspiring crafts and free printables to our Teacher Gift Ideas board on Pinterest. Today, we’re sharing 20 of the best teacher gift ideas we’ve seen to help you quickly and easily create a special teacher appreciation gift for your child’s teacher.
