I know for many of you summer vacation has already begun. But for myself and most of Canada, we still have one more week left (5 work days for me…I’m not counting). So for those of you ticking away those last few days, I’ve thought about what makes the perfect teacher gift, and I’m here to help.
I steered away from the usual teacher gifts. While cutesy sayings such as “You’re one sharp teacher!” are, well, cute and all, I’ll tell you right now that teacher’s have seen it all. It’s far more meaningful when students write a personal note. It could be what they love about their teacher, their favourite moment of the year, or even just a simple thank you (because let’s face it, sometimes kids don’t like their teachers and don’t want to say much at all!).
These 10 DIY’s are not tacky (no cutesy sayings here), unexpected, and either for home or classroom, just what the teacher needs.
There’s your teacher gift giving guide! If your school year is already over (lucky bum) then bookmark this for “back to school”. Many of these gifts will work for the start of year as well.
And all these DIYs I got off the DIY Bloggers group pinterest board. If you haven’t already you seriously need to check it out. There’s some incredible stuff on there.
Enjoy your last few days of school!
