Teachers are an important part of our kids’ lives. They are the ones who are watching and teaching our children for a better part of the day. So why not make them feel important in our lives and make some gifts that come from the heart? Here are a few suggestions.

Gift Card Bouquets:


These don’t have to be expensive. It could also be only one or two cards. Sometimes teachers like to get coffee before they come to school. Nothing fancy.

School Supply Bouquet:


Quite often teachers (on their modest salaries) end up buying school supplies themselves because of a small school budget. Try going to the dollar store and putting together a cute school supply bouquet.

Mason Jar Cookies:


Nothing says homemade like a great cookie recipe. Your child’s teacher will love mason jar cookies. They are not a whole big batch so they can be made anytime.

Supply Cup:


This is a two-fer! Fill it with something they can use. Then when they take the supplies out; bam! Drinking cup.

Personalized tote bag:


From the stacks of papers to grade to planners and more, teachers have a lot of things to tote.

Chalkboard Flower Pot:


This awesome flowerpot only takes a few supplies, and is a great after-school craft.
