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 a teacher appreciation gift that 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. In a pinch, I have also just taped some cash to the back of the card. 🙂 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 think it’s important to have my kids contribute something to the gifts they give their teachers, so I had my son help make the bread, and left space on the bottom of the gift card for him to sign his name. 🙂
I came up with a printable gift tag that you can use. All you have to do is print it off, and tape a gift card or some cash to the back of the card. I think it turned out pretty cute!
