Teaching can be a thankless job. Teachers have the potential for making a lasting impact on children’s lives but frequently have to go the extra mile just to get the job done. Whether because of disruptive students, a challenging school administrator, or difficult parents, teachers are known for their ability to overcome.

When you have wonderful teachers, it’s especially important to let them know they are appreciated and valued.

Elementary school teachers usually get a dedicated week and day. Sometimes, a Room Mom will take charge of teacher appreciation week to make sure each of the kids’ families is aware of the occasion. Sometimes they’ll also provide information about your teacher’s favorite things.

Your kids’ teachers will likely end up with 10 or more of the same old, dependable gifts. The tags and cards I’ve listed will help you add a personal touch to your gift or may help find some original gift ideas for your teacher.

But teacher appreciation gifts aren’t just for elementary school! Middle school and high school teachers appreciate gifts as well!

If you have an amazing teacher that you’d like to thank at the end of the year, here are a few great ideas:

  • Candy bar
  • Gourmet cookies
  • Bag of chips
  • Plants
  • Gift cards to their favorite places
  • School supplies
  • Mugs

With just a little card stock and a printer, you can make free teacher appreciation printables to decorate your gifts and thank all of your kids’ teachers for the tough, sometimes thankless job they do. You can also look here for more teacher gift ideas with cute tags.
