4 Fabulous Teacher Appreciation Gifts Teachers Actually Want

As a former teacher, I can tell you the placement of Teacher Appreciation Week in May is very strategic! It's usually right before all of the end of the year testing, stress levels are high, our students may be getting comfortable and acting out a bit, and it's just, well, a tough time of year! While teachers are thankful for any gift, some are more creative and fun than others. Here are 4 fabulous teacher appreciation gifts that teachers would actually want. If you purchase from any of these fabulous ladies listed below, you're also supporting moms with small businesses, so it's a win-win!

1. Spring Scarf or Make-Up Bag from TCFashions

Pick up a spring scarf or make-up bag from Erin over at TCFashions. Her prints are fun + fabulous, and any teacher would want to snag something from her shop! Fill the make-up bag with candy, a gift card, or it pairs perfectly with our EOS lip balm cards

 

2. Coffee Cozy from LittlePunkinPrints + coffee gift card

If you follow me on social media, you know I survive on coffee! I also know plenty of teachers who stop for that all-important cup of coffee on their way in to school! Grab an empty cup from the coffee shop, place one of these super cute coffee cozies from Suzy over at LittlePunkinPrints around the cup, and stick a gift card to their favorite coffee shop in the cup. Super cute packaging and trust me, this gift will be used! Suzy also has fun teacher prints you could print + frame as a great gift!

 
Erin has lots of other prints and options for both scarves + make-up bags in her shop!

3. Cake Pops from Pink Polka Dot Bake Shop

Heather over at Pink Polka Dot Bake Shop has been busy baking sweet treats for teachers! You can order these delicious custom cake pops in mason jars or individually for each teacher. She offers so many different flavors {that are all delicious~ I've tried most of them!} + customizing options, it's hard to pick your favorite! Contact Heather at pinkpolkadotbaker@gmail.com to place your Teacher Appreciation cake pop order. 

4.  EOS Lip Balm Thank You Card from Creigh-ations

Thank your teacher "a bunch" with our latest EOS Lip Balm card. Most women love these fun lip balms that fit perfectly in the center of these flowers. Personalize your card with a note from your child on the back. Your child's teacher will love this cute + practical gift!

As a former teacher, we love getting small tokens of appreciation at any time of the year. A cute homemade card by your little one will also go a long way! Whatever you decide to give your child's teacher this year, just remember to THANK a teacher today. It means so much. Trust me!
