As a teacher for 13 years, let me pass on the message…PLEASE, no “teacher stuff”! These are the mugs, plaques, earrings, etc. made specifically for teachers (think apples, school houses, ruler decorations!). Trust me, your teacher has enough of it.

What would teachers like for teacher appreciation gifts? We would love something personal from your child to help us remember him or her, especially if it incorporates a picture of your child. Something that can be used up, like supplies for the classroom, a treat for the teacher, or a gift card to a favorite restaurant or coffee shop make a great addition to that art project or personal letter.

As a parent, I have tried to take this to heart. Teachers get so many sweet treats around the holidays, I gave homemade sugar scrub to our teachers for Christmas, and plan to make them a little something sweet for the end of the year.  If you are in need of a cool project for your kids to make for their teacher, check out the links below and at my personal favorite place, Family Fun Magazine.
