I am so excited to show you these really cute (yet simple to make!) Teacher Appreciation gifts created by my Creative Team member Leigh. Teacher Appreciation Day isn’t something we really celebrate here in the UK so I am saving up these ideas to help me create some end-of-year gifts for my children’s teachers this year!
I think this first one is my favourite: simple strawberry baskets filled with polkadot paper and yummy strawberry sweets!
Leigh created a really cute gift tag with the phrase, “We could not have PICKED a better bunch of teachers!” and decorated it with some strawberries and a smiley sun! Leigh made a number of these little gift baskets for her colleagues at school.
Along with the strawberry gift, Leigh also made an even simpler gift – a printed tag on a box of Altoid mints, complete with fun pun! This is a really quick and easy gift to put together, perfect for those last-minute projects that sometimes sneak up on us!
This next gift could have been made for me – coke and chocolate are my favourite treats! Once again Leigh created a simple gift tag and paired it with a chocolate bar and a can of coke for an easy gift idea. The ribbon and heart patterned straw add a really fun touch!
And finally, Leigh’s pièce de résistance is the gifts her own children took in for their teachers: their favourite sweets and an iTunes gift card all wrapped up in a sparkly basket! Leigh created her “Listen Teacher, you rock!” gift card in Photoshop and then printed onto cardstock and included it in the gift basket. What a lovely way to create a really thoughtful and personalised teacher gift, I’m sure the lucky teachers loved them!
I hope Leigh has given you some ideas to create your own quick and easy Teacher Appreciation (or end of year!) gifts – armed with a few digi supplies, a printer and some fun puns you can quickly put together some lovely gifts!
