Inside: Use this simple DIY teacher appreciation gift idea for any Elementary aged student. There’s even a free printable gift tag to match.
I don’t know if you’ve realized or not, but national Teacher Appreciation is May 3rd this year. And that’s less than two weeks away. It’s amazing how fast this school year has flown by for my kids and I!
Last year I created these fun Jamba Juice gift card holders, but this year I wanted to bring you a DIY teacher appreciation gift idea that a teacher would really want and that isn’t solely based around apples for the teacher (although there are A LOT of cute gift ideas for those).
I spent a while looking around Pinterest and Google for gift ideas that teachers actually want because there’s no use in giving them something that they really have no interest in. And what seemed to come up time and again were books for the classroom.
But I wanted to throw in a little extra something just for the teacher so I bought a book for the classroom and a pretty journal just for my son’s teacher. That way she can have something for her and her class; win-win I say!
I created the free printable thank you tags in 6 different colors, so I’m hoping there’s a least one you can use to coordinate with the books or journal that you buy. Each tag is sized as 3.5″x5″.
