Teacher Appreciation week is almost here! Therefore, it is time to start working on gifts for those awesome educators. Lest I not be completely honest with you, I am a teacher. 🙂 However, I am also a mom of 2 and have had many years of experience buying and making teacher appreciation gifts. So what makes the very best gift?
Inasmuch as I truly love handmade gifts, to be honest, unless they are handmade by the student, I would prefer something more useful. While crayon wreaths and custom planters are adorable, there is only so much space for them. Since I am a traveling teacher, I only have a small office that I share with the other Spanish teacher. Thus, there is not much space for anything other than teaching materials.
In truth, the very best teacher appreciation gift is one that combines something personal from the student with something practical for the teacher. For example, you can never go wrong with a gift card from Amazon or Target. Combine this with a personal note or card from your student and I promise any teacher will be happy!! In addition to that idea, here are some of my favorites:
