When the last day of school is fast approaching, it helps to have a list of end-of-the-year gift ideas for teachers. Today I’m sharing 10 easy last-minute teacher gifts (that you can buy anywhere!).
As a former teacher, I can honestly say that most teachers love gift cards. A gift card allows the teacher to buy whatever they want. There are also easy gifts for teachers that don’t require much preparation.
Amazon Gift Card – You can print one directly online.
A gift certificate to their favorite local restaurant.
“Thank you for helping me grow!” – a gift card for a garden centre, a potted plant or a bouquet of flowers.
“I have nothing to do with you as a teacher!” – a bottle of wine (if allowed).
“MANI thank you for an awesome year” – a Mani/Pedi gift certificate.
“Thanks a Latte” – a certificate to a local coffee shop OR Dunkin’s/Starbucks.
“Thank you for the POPPIN school year!” – cinema tickets.
“This year was SCENTsational!” – offer a candle.
“We appreciate you a BUNCH, so enjoy LUNCH on us!” – UberEats or Door Dash gift card.
“I DON’T KNOW what I would do without you!” – gift card for breakfast OR donut.
If you don’t know teachers’ favorite places, stick to a universally loved gift card: Visa!
Do you need a card to accompany your gift card? Here are some easy ideas for personalizing your end-of-year teacher gift.
Watercolor Paper Cards – allow your child to decorate butcher paper with watercolor paints, then cut into a homemade card when dry.
Handprint Art – there are so many fun and easy painting activities for kids that can be used as cards.
You don’t have to be a real crafty mom to create a professional looking card. Use the free program Cloth to create a printable card with a fun quote to match the gift.
