12 DIY Teacher Gift Ideas
Teachers are so very special so it makes sense to give them a gift to show your appreciation. These adorable gifts are sure to warm their heart and make them feel great about the upcoming school year.
- Have your kids help! Even kindergarteners love making gifts for people. A great way to keep your child involved is by having them help. Plus, it’s fun!
- Gift cards are always appreciated. Add a gift card to a local shop or restaurant with the gift. While it’s not required, it is another way to show your appreciation.
- Don’t worry about your craft skills. It’s completely fine if you aren’t the best crafter in the world. It’s the thought that counts!
