Food Gifts for Teachers
I made this for my son’s preschool teachers last year. S’mores are a classic summer treat, so it’s a natural gift for any teacher longing for the summer to arrive. I purchased the boxes and ribbon from Wal-Mart, then added some graham crackers, marshmallow and Hershey’s bars.

Teachers receive a ton of gifts at the end of the year, so why not get them something practical? A gift card is a great way to show you care, all the while knowing that it will come in handy, too. Just because you’re giving a gift card doesn’t mean you can’t add some DIY charm, though. Check out this cinema gift card holder idea from Tater Tots and Jello (pictured) to see how creative you can get when presenting a gift card.
Flower Gifts for Teachers
Flowers are a timeless teacher gift idea. The trick to making your gift stand out is by adding a little DIY charm to your presentation. Consider this painted mason jar flower arrangement by Skip to My Lou, which adds some personality to a classic end of year teacher gift.
Help your kid’s teacher kick off the summer with a fun-filled gift bag. The bag pictured above, from Skip to My Lou, includes a beach bag filled with awesome summer items like a beach towel, magazines, and a tumbler.
Handmade Teacher Gifts
If you’re a DIY lover like me, you may be partial to handmade teacher gifts like this awesome repurposed ruler art from Hometalk. Not only does it fit with any teacher’s decor, it’s also a great keepsake that will remind your child’s teacher of her time with him or her long after they’ve moved on to the next grade.
