Homemade Teacher Gifts

Dawn has blown me away with these creative initial plaques. I’m going to have to do this for my boys teachers for sure!

I’ve got to feature another one of Elaine’s Creations. Take a look at this amazing tote and cards. You’re in luck! She gives all the instructions on how to make it.

Kim made these awesome teacher gift ideas! She made this adorable Teacher Survivor Kit and filled it full of candy, lifesavers, advil, stamps, etc….

Kim also made this one, she found the chalkboard at Big Lots and placed a bunch of school themed stuff on it. Beautiful!

Liz spotlighted this awesome key chain idea.

Treats! If you don’t want to make your own gift, you can purchase this from Tabetha

Aimee made this adorable clip board, which is a great teacher gift! If like this idea and want to see more Cute Clipboards check out my post from October.

Maureen made these cute frames for her son’s teacher.

>Amber applied vinyl “Teaching is a Work of Art” to a biscuit jar and filled it with individually wrapped biscottis and tied on a Starbucks gift card.

Dannie’s another blogger I can count on to have some amazing ideas. She made a booklet to hold several gift certificates.

For example: “What will Mrs. B do with her summer?” Read a great book! (include a gift certificate to Barnes and Noble) Amazing creativity and a wonderful gift.
