It has been about a month since I last blogged and I’m embarrassed about that. I have been out of the country twice and my kids have state wide testing and exams so our life has been so crazy. However, I really want to keep up with my writing and sharing info with you guys. I really enjoy it and want to make it a consistent part of my week. Summer is fast approaching. My kids get out of school at the end of next week and I have been thinking about teacher gifts.
Do you have that special teacher that you would like to show your appreciation to with an end of the year gift? Buying gifts for numerous teachers can get quite pricey. I’m going to show you some inexpensive, cute gifts that any teacher would like. I’m a former teacher and I have sorted through many ideas before choosing the ones I wanted to share with you. If you aren’t a DIYer you can’t go wrong with a gift card. You might want to find out some of your teacher’s favorite places to eat, shop etc… before purchasing the card so you know it will be a hit. Also, homemade gifts made by your children always go over well and don’t cost very much. Let’s jump right in and hopefully you will find a gift that will work for your teacher.
The first teacher gift is a beach bag full of things to have an amazing day in the sun. I love this gift as I live 20 minutes from the beach and would love receiving this. I bought this bag at Target for $34.99. For this size bag, I thought that was a great price. I could easily fit three large beach towels, magazines, flip flops, sunscreen and several other small items. There was still room left over for packing snacks. The entire class could give this to their teacher as an end of the year gift.
A great gift that is very inexpensive and so adorable is made with a bag of Sour patch watermelon candies. All you have to do is put the candies in a clear bag and attach a tag that says, “You’re one in a “MELON.” Teachers just want to know they are appreciated. It’s not about the cost of the gift, but the thought that counts.
This gift also has a cute saying and is very easy to make. All you have to do is gather things that are orange. I decided to buy a mason jar with a drinking straw as well as other orange items. You could also use an orange bag, pitcher, or basket. If you are having trouble thinking of items that are orange you could try tic tacs, gum, nail polish, orange tootsie rolls, suckers, goldfish, crush soda, kit kats etc… Then use the saying, “ORANGE” you glad it’s summer,” to go along with the gift.
I hope some of these gifts gave you an idea for your teacher as an year end gift. Enjoy your parties and end of the year activities. Have a safe and enjoyable summer with your family and friends.
