Teacher Appreciation Week is quickly approaching and if you are like me, you are trying to come up with some clever and inexpensive teacher gift ideas! Both of my kids schools are going all out for the teachers for the week with a breakfast buffet, taco bar for lunch, desserts, giveaways…it will be a great week for the extremely hardworking teachers! If your kids are like mine, they will also want to personally give their teachers a little gift during the week, as well. Below you will find a bunch of inexpensive teacher gift ideas that are perfect for Teacher Appreciation Week!
Inexpensive Teacher Gift Ideas!
This adorable idea (and FREE printable) can be found at A Sparkle of Genius. It uses something pretty much all teachers love…Sharpies! Oh…and chocolate. No one can resist chocolate! So head on over and download the free printable and be sure to check out Amazon for good deals (like this one) on Sharpies!
Most years, my kids will pick out a plant to take their teacher for Teacher Appreciation Week. Over at Sippy Cup Mom, you can find the adorable (and FREE) printable for the sign added to the flowers. It adds that extra special touch!
Some classes like to go in on one big gift for the teacher (which I really like doing too). The nice thing about this gift idea is that you can give the teacher a bunch of gift cards to enjoy his or her time outside of the classroom! Check out your local dollar store for the drink tub seen in this picture and candy to add to the basket!
My Sweet Sanity has come up with a great way to upcyle an old container into a cute gift idea! Do you have a to die for cookie recipe? Bake those cookies, have your kids decorate the container and don’t forget to stop by My Sweet Sanity to download the cute printable to attach to your gift!
This is one of my favorite gift ideas! Everyday Savvy put together a very cute and useful teacher gift! Be sure to check out Amazon to see if you can find the cups in bulk (like these) that you could split the cost with other parents (in different classes, of course!).
A handwritten note or this fill-in-the-blank printable that can be found at Frugal Novice is a perfect gift for any teacher, any grade. You could volunteer in the classroom and have each kid fill one out while you work with them and then get it bound at your local office supply store! What a cute book for the teacher to thumb through for years to come!

When I give a gift, I put a lot of thought into it. I am always on the lookout for a unique gift idea.

At the end of the summer, Bella will be heading to a sleep-away summer camp. She went last year and had a blast. One thing that was rather tedious was labeling all of her clothes and gear.

I have two tweens...need I say more?!? … [Read More...]
Have you ever known someone that has a Toyota? They are all about their cars. Once they buy one Toyota, they drive it into the ground and then buy another one.
