Do you do teacher appreciation gifts? Growing up, this was not something done in our household and I don’t think this was done with my husband’s either. But, I don’t think you need to spend a ton of money to let teacher’s know that you appreciate the time and effort they put into your kids. Or, as I tell my husband, one of our kids will be back next year and we want to make sure she continues to get great treatment! 😉
This week is the last week of school for my kids. After searching through Pinterest, I found a cute idea to give handsoap with a hand printable for their teachers.
I traced their hands and then cut it out and let them decorate it and write their name.
Then, I attached the handprint with a free printable tag and attached it with Mrs. Meyers foaming hand soap. We “splurged” on the soap to go a little fancier.
The teachers appreciated it and I think it’s one of those nice non-cluttery gifts that works well. I’ve talked with friends who are teachers and they’ve told me their favorite gifts are gift cards, wrapped and packaged food, and useful items.
I also know NOT to give homemade food, or anything homemade because that makes its way directly into the trashcan.
Any other great gift ideas? I love the ease of access through Pinterest.
