“You’re One in a Melon” Teacher Appreciation Gift Idea


Looking for an easy Teacher Appreciation Gift? These cute watermelon-themed gifts are a great way to tell your teachers they are “one in a melon!”


A Simple Teacher Appreciation Gift Idea

School teachers are so amazing, wouldn’t you agree? My oldest child is only finishing up kindergarten and I’m already blown away with how much his teacher has done for him! We missed giving our teachers something for Teacher Appreciation Week this year (due to a new baby), so I really wanted to spoil the teachers at the end of the year.

You know me, I love a good themed gift! But the pragmatic side of me also wants to give something practical. So I tried to combine the two and this is what I came up with.

One in a Melon

Teachers really are one in a million. Their patience, love, and ability to teach our children is such a gift. So that was the theme I choose for this year. And what screams summer more than watermelons?

There is no limit to what you can include in your watermelon-themed gift! You will find so many fun watermelon gift ideas at your favorite shops right now. If you know your teachers super well, you could pick something that is very specific to them.

I love giving theme gifts, but I also wanted to include something practical. So this is what we included in our gift bag:

I thought these were cute, too, but I ran out of time to order. Ooops! #reallife

Like I mentioned earlier, I wanted to spoil our teachers a little more than normal since we missed Teacher Appreciation week. So along with the fun watermelon gifts, I also included an Amazon gift card in the package. I ran out of time to order the actual card, but if you have time to get a real gift card, you can package it in one of these cute watermelon gift card envelopes.
