With about 30 days of school left, there’s no doubt teachers everywhere are looking forward to Teacher Appreciation Week. I, as a parent, am, too! Teacher Appreciation week is a time to thank your child’s teacher for everything: the good, the bad, the life lessons and of course, the curriculum.
As a former teacher, I’ll be honest with you – not many teachers need more bath soap or lotion. …They probably have plenty left over from Christmas. While I know it’s the thought that counts, I feel like the thought should be worth something more than another bottle of lotion to add to the collection.
I always try to give our teachers gift cards to restaurants, coffee shops or book stores, but I’ve given personalized notepads, coffee mugs and edible treats, too! This year, however, we have a total of 16 teachers among 3 children. (Yes, SIXTEEN!) There is no way my checkbook will allow me to spend more than a few dollars on each of them, since I give daily gifts to most of the teachers that week. I need practical, cute and reasonably priced.
When we went to Home Depot for some flowers to plant on Earth Day, I noticed small potted flowers marked at $1 or $2 each. And they were pretty. My creative mind started running and I immediately thought about Teacher Appreciation gifts, so I let my children choose one for each of their teachers.
Of course I can’t just hand each teacher a flower, so I made adorable gift tags to embellish the flower pot. I’m also going to add some cute coordinating ribbon or fabric to the flower pot, and estimate that each gift will cost from $1.50 – $2.50, depending on the flower type. I can handle that!
Teacher Appreciation Flower Gift
To start, download the “Thank you for helping me grow” gift tag, which is slightly different than the one in the pictures, but still cute! (The previous file was somehow deleted from my files and needed to be recreated!)
Print the tags on 4×6 photo paper, card stock or blank index cards. You should get 3 to a card.
Now cut the tags and tape a colorful straw or wooden skewer to the back. Take a second to add a cute ribbon around the rim of the pot, then stick the tag in the dirt and you’re done! Super easy, cute and practical!
If you make these, I’d love to see your project! Tag @hustlemomrepeat on instagram, and use the hashtag #HustleMomRepeat
