Teacher Appreciation Week is right around the corner for us. So it is time to start thinking about gift ideas! Every year I tell myself that I am going to plan ahead and be ready for Teacher Appreciation Week/ End of Year gifts months in advanced, and every year I find myself frantically searching Pinterest the Sunday night before Teacher Appreciation Week begins looking for quick and easy ideas. While I am not ready months in advanced, I am doing better than last year by thinking about this at least one week in advance!
I wanted to share my 25 favorite gift ideas that are unique, fun, sweet and cute. I’ve divided the list into seven different categories:
Sweet Treats • Home Baked Goodies • For the Nature Lover • Pampering your Teacher •
School Supplies • Sentimental Thoughts • When All Else Fails…
What I love about many of these ideas is that they take simple items that you might even already have around your house, wrap them up with some cute packaging and viola! you have a great teacher appreciation gift! If you need some fun finishing touches for your gifts, be sure to check out the wide assortment of labels and gift bags at Snuggly Monkey.
