5 Days of Teacher Appreciation Gifts

Last week was Teacher Appreciation Week and I wanted to show our teachers how much we truly appreciate everything they do for our kids. Knowing how much I love receiving pillow gifts each night on incentive trips, I decided to do a small gift each day for the teachers.

Monday kind of snuck up on me. I had purchased some chocolate covered pretzels after Easter, so I stamped a simple tag with the Painted Petals set to dress it up. The sentiment "You're Amazingly Amazing" was perfect for this occasion!

Tuesday was a splurge day. I bought arrangements of fresh flowers for each teacher to enjoy on their desk all week. No stamping this time. The flowers spoke for themselves. But I forgot to snap a picture!
Wednesday we gave them reusable water bottles and powder lemonade mix. The tag was easy! I made an extra long with the Tag Topper Punch and then folded it over to create a pocket. I secured the pocket corners with Glue Dots. I covered the bottle tag with the lemonade pocket using a clothespin to hold it.

Thursday, I created a cute tag with the Banner Banter stamp set to dress up a stack of notepads for each teacher. I purchased the notepads after Christmas. they were packaged to look like a stack of gifts, but the colors aren't too Christmasy, so I thought they would work for any occasion. Real Red and Coastal Cabana were perfect color matches!

Friday's gift was all about the kids! They each painted a mini canvas with a unique design and personally wrote a note of appreciation in a notecard for their teacher. I used the Work of Art stamp set to stamp these quick notecards. They didn't turn out exactly as I had hoped, but I loved how the sentiment coordinated with the gift: "You are a fabulous work of art".

Amazing gifts for the teachers who work soooo hard all year long to keep the kids learning, happy and wanting to come back each day! We are soooo far from having teachers in our family lives but love what you have done!
