Teacher Appreciation Idea {Free Printable}

Friday was the last day of school for my boys.  Just like every year, they had fabulous teachers, and I wanted to do something to show how much I appreciated them this year. I know there is only so much hand lotion/apple crafts/mugs that a teacher needs. I wanted to come up with something they would actually use.

I decided to do gift cards, because let's face it, there's not a single teacher on the planet that couldn't use a little extra cash. Heck, everyone could use a little extra cash! I wanted to do gift cards from Target, but it's 45 minutes from my house, so I ended up doing Walmart cards. I wanted to make it a little more special than just handing over a gift card, so I came up with the idea of pairing it with a loaf of bread. I know teachers tend to get a lot of sweets on the last day, so I opted for a loaf of homemade wheat bread.

I came up with a gift tag to tie the two ideas together. I simply taped the gift card to the back of the tag. I'm including a free printable if any of you would like to use it. I think it turned out pretty cute! I left a space at the bottom for the student to sign his/her name.

    thanks for sharing that. its really cute.

    • Thanks so much Rashelle. It took a lot of tweaking for me to get it how I liked it, but I think that eventually it really did turn out cute. Not that I'm tooting my own horn or anything. :)

  2. Finally, a gift for a teacher that does not include a frame, crayons or ruler! I'm not a teacher, but really, giving a teacher a frame with crayons etc. is like giving donuts to the lady who works at a bakery! The bread is a good touch. Any amount in the form of a gift card is a great idea. Many school districts have not passed their levies and many teachers buy needed supplies out of pocket. Thanks for your post. You always have great ideas.

    • Haha! So true. In the past I have actually asked my teacher friends what type of gifts they like to receive. School supplies and gift cards are always mentioned. And I will never give any teacher a mug or an apple craft. LOL!
