Showing appreciation for your kid’s teachers is super simple with these Apple-Themed Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas!
Teacher Appreciation Week Gifts
It’s teacher appreciation week and I’m so excited to share a few ideas with you to help show the teachers in your life how grateful you are for all they do. If you don’t send in a gift this week, the end of the school year will be here before you know it and that’s always a great time for a thank you as well. I’m even sharing some free printables to make it even easier for you!
Last year I was the Room Mother for my son’s 1st grade class, so I went all out to put together a gift bag full of goodies from the whole class. I’m not suggesting that anyone needs to do all of these things, I just thought it would be fun to share several ideas for you to pick and choose from. I’m a sucker for a good apple theme when it comes to teacher gifts, so here’s a few fun and themed ideas for you today…
FRAMED CLASS WORD ART
I found an awesome tutorial on how to make this apple art here. Instead of making a card like she did, I decided to frame it as a keepsake for the teacher to remember her little class by. All you’ll need is a class list.
What teacher couldn’t use more pencils?? I just spray painted a glass jar red and added some paper leaves to look like an apple and filled the whole thing with the teacher’s favorite kind of pencils. Super easy. Super cute.
If you’re lucky enough to volunteer at your child’s school, grab some pictures of the different activities each time you go. At the end of the year throw them all on a CD as a great gift for the teacher. I even have the printable to make the apple themed CD sleeve for you at the end of the post.
What teacher couldn’t use a nice night out to celebrate another school year for the books. A giftcard to Applebees goes right along with the theme and it’s a gift you know they’ll actually want and use. You can grab this printable at the end of the post as well!
All the EOS printables are just so fun don’t you think?! Here’s a cute apple one for your favorite teacher.
CLOTH TEACHER BAG
Throw your gift in a cloth bag so the teacher can reuse it and it’s another gift all on it’s own. I used some fun iron on vinyl to personalize this one as well, but you could do just about anything or leave it plain too. Either way they’ll love it!
Being a teacher is hard work and I for one am so grateful for all they do for my kiddos. Show your favorite teachers just how much you appreciate them this week or by the end of the school year! And to make it easier here’s some free printables for you to whip up your gifts this week…
