DYI Teacher Gifts Ideas

School’s out for the Summer!! Well almost! Before you start packing up the pencils and books for the summer, don’t forget to think about the perfect gift to thank your teacher for all of their hard work this past year. When selecting a teacher gift remember that your teacher has many children in their class that are likely giving them a gift as well. Staying away from the typical #1 teacher is a good idea as they probably have an entire box of them at home. To help you create an amazing gift that your child’s teacher will love and use I searched the blogger world and came up with my top 10 favourites!

    There are some really great ideas here. I am going to save some for uses for my daycare kids to use for Mother’s and Father’s Day.

    These are awesome ideas! It is so hard to find meaningful, frugal & useful gifts!

    Great selection of ideas. Our school tends to do the brown envelope method by which we all leave money in a brown envelope and someone buys a gift card from all of us. Not creative but easy enough for me to do.

    Definitely some cute ideas there! I also will have to pin some for next year!

    Great ideas, I always struggle with teacher gifts at Christmas and the end of the school year.

    This year we gave my sons teach a heart shaped pancake pan! It was cute.

    Great ideas! It’s always hard to find something unique to give, and I’m sure the teachers appreciate something handmade.

    Those cookie flowers are so cute! I’ll have to pin them for later use :)
