The best teacher gift is one that the teacher will actually use. I’ve never met a teacher who didn’t appreciate a little extra cash!
When it comes to teacher gifts, I am all about practical. No apple crafts, and definitely no mugs. I have several friends who are teachers, and after twisting their arms, they will usually tell me what gifts they actually think are the best teacher gifts. Notes of appreciation and a little extra money are always at the top of the list!
Last year for my youngest son’s teacher, I thought it would be fun to give his teacher some cash, but I wanted to present it in a fun way. I decided to wrap up some dollar bills, tie ribbon around them, and stick ’em in a gift bag, with a cute little poem on top. It was super easy, but I know she appreciated it!
I’m sharing the printable poem in case you want to use it for your favorite teachers.
Print out the card on cardstock, cut it out, and add it to your bag of dollar bills. Easy peasy!
