7 End-of-the-Year Gift Ideas to Thank Teachers

7 End-of-the-Year Gift Ideas to Thank Teachers

Summer is still a long ways off for us, but I am already thinking about one gift that always gives me a little anxiety at the end of the school year. What do you give a teacher after a full year with your child? I am so appreciative of the amazing work they do, and I want to recognize the important impact teachers have on my child's life. But how do you do that with one small gift?

Wouldn't it be fun to do something amazing like buy all of their school supplies for an entire year? Maybe someday... For now, I hope to give them a little something that shows my appreciation and would be considered useful and (hopefully) enjoyable.

Here are a few gifts that I am thinking about for our teachers:

A Cute Tote Bag for All Those Supplies

These would be cute filled with a bouquet of fresh flowers and a handwritten note from your child.

Personalized Correspondence

While these might be popular gifts, they both feel useful enough that the teacher might not mind having more than one. Plus, how cute is that personalized stationery?? The store, Paper + Cup, is chock full of adorable paper goods and gifts.

Monogrammed Keychain

These monogrammed leather keychains check both the timeless and useful boxes, making it a solid teacher gift. I am already envisioning all of the "key" puns that you could incorporate into the card. :)

The Always-Appreciated Gift Card

I have read that the most wanted teacher gifts are gift cards for the big stores, where teachers can get anything from classroom supplies to personal indulgences. I always love Amazon for this because of its seemingly limitless options, but Target is a great one too. In the past, I have wrapped ours in craft paper decorated by the kids to give it a slightly more personal touch.

What teacher gifts do you like to give?
