Teacher Gifts

I've been thinking about all my teacher friends out there, so I thought I'd share a couple of end-of-the-year teacher gift ideas.


This one is a cutie. I keep seeing Mason jars being used for all sorts of adorableness, so I thought it would be a good choice for a teacher gift. Simply attach a gift card to her/his favorite restaurant, store etc. and you've got yourself one unique gift.

The jar has a rectangle of chalkboard vinyl on it, so it can be reused to hold pens, pencils, and such. The lid bears a circular piece of scrapbook paper on which you can write a sweet message to the teacher. I chose Kroger's yogurt pretzels ($2.79/bag) to fill the jar because I thought the white looked nice with the chalkboard rectangle. Oh, and I also LOVE them!!!!

Personalized Citronella Candle

Another very useful idea to which one could attach a gift card of choice is a citronella bucket candle. I personalized this one with some adhesive vinyl and ribbon. Cute, useful, and handy for attaching a gift card.

In case you can't tell, I always loved getting gift cards. It was so nice on inservice training days to be able to go out to eat at a restaurant for FREE thanks to a sweet student.

Here are a few other lovely teacher gift ideas I stumbled across during my recent blog hopping. =)

Crayon Monograms : Love this idea...may do one for my son's room b/c he LOVES to color!

How about a cute clipboard with a vinyl monogram? If you have a Cricut and some adhesive vinyl, you could do this!

Here are a few more ideas found at Skip to my Lou. Gotta love that hand sanitizer!

Show your kiddo's teacher' some love for year of hard work! Feel free to leave a link to your own teacher gift ideas below!!
