Inexpensive Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas

The picture above was taken from The Executive Homemaker. And if you go there you will find the template to print the label for these s'mores! It is just too cute to not share with my readers!

I also found the most FANTASTIC list of thrifty gift ideas - I just had to share them with you!!! These would be great to give to your children's Sunday School Teachers, Pastors, and School Teachers.

I found these on Skip to My Lou during teacher appreciation week...

You have been ‘key’ to Blake’s success!” tag attached to a key ring, maybe a pretty handmade beaded one

“We are ‘nuts’ about you!” tag attached to some nuts

You ‘float’ above the rest” tag attached to a balloon or a fun pool float for the summer

Here is a ‘pat’ on the back for doing such a great job!” tag attached to a gift certificate for a massage

Also, Making Memories With Your Kids has an adorable list of fun ideas!


I thank the Lord for the outstanding teachers (they can make or break a year!). Teachers need to know that their investment in our children's lives are appreciated. Take the time to pick up something small and let your children write out the card to show show their gratitude.

Wrapping candy bars is also a great way to give an inexpensive gift to teachers. I use scrapbook paper and embellishments to make a neat gift. I made some for my children's teachers for Easter.
