Teacher Appreciation Ideas

Teacher appreciation week is May 7th-11th this year and that’s NEXT WEEK!  I absolutely love to give little gifts to my kids’ teachers to show them how much I appreciate all they do for my little ones.  I totally admire teachers and I want them to feel special and know that we love them!  I shared some teacher Thank You ideas HERE on my blog last year and wanted to share a few more that I have found this year that I really LOVE.

First of all I found this cute “Favorite Things” questionnaire from Life Sweet Life that I’m going to give to all my kids’ teachers to have them fill out.  I should have done this at the beginning of the year (note to self for next year!) but I like the idea of finding out what your teachers like so you can tailor their gift towards something you know they will enjoy.  If you don’t want to print out the questionnaire, simply send an e-mail to the teachers with a list of similar questions.

Here are some new ideas that I’ve found on the web that I wanted to share with you:

It’s Written on the Wall has created 51 “lunchbox notes” that you can download and attach to any little gift you want to give.

I LOVE this strawberry-themed basket with free printable from the girls at eighteen25 – perfect for the season.  Check out all the other fabulous ideas these girls have shared over the years for Teachers Appreciation week – they are seriously my favorite!

Teachers (well anyone really!) can always use some sticky notes and this darling sticky note holder from domesticated lady is perfect and has the free printable downloads for you.

The pictures above are just 2 of over 60 Teacher Appreciation ideas from Top Bloggers over at Skip to My Lou.  I guarantee you’ll find something that will be just perfect for your teachers!

What are some of your favorite Teacher Appreciation gift ideas?  I’d love to hear about them in the comments below!

    I love the print out of the favorite things. I think it would be great to have a line items for any allergies that the teacher may have. But i am still sending it in with my daughter tomorrow who has started 3rd grade this past Monday.
