Teacher Appreciation Gift

Next week is Teacher (and Staff!) appreciation week, and, as I said before, I suck at gift-giving.

Again, bring on Pinterest!

This time I couldn't find anything under the Big Kid's teacher's Pinterest account, so I looked under general "Teacher Appreciation Gift" pins, and was really not thrilled with most of the things I saw. I don't want to make a lemon and sugar body scrub because I think everyone has their own preferred health & beauty items... Or something "teacher" themed... I think that's impersonal, because teachers aren't only teachers! They're parents, marathoners, musicians, secret (or not-so-secret) sci-fi geeks (and I know one reader knows that I'm talking about him!).. They're PEOPLE! Who could probably use just one monogram made from crayons.

I happen to know that the Big Kid's teacher has two young girls, so I would imagine that getting out of the house to do things as a family is a little more difficult than she'd like, so when I saw this pin, I fell in LOVE!


And then clicked over and saw that it's $50. When, I know for a fact that Dollar Tree sells that exact popcorn container, and nearly all of those candies...

So I went to Dollar Tree, spent $6 (and change) and got some supplies.



Then I went to Redbox's website and ordered a promo code bundle of 5 movies for $6 (this was a little confusing because the website says that you can order and print them by clicking that link, but I couldn't find just a "print" option - so I just had them emailed to myself) and printed it off.

And for just over $12, we're giving her a relaxed movie night in that I hope shows her that she's super appreciated, and let's her share it with her family.

With that, I think I've given my second not-so-bad gift (probably of my life)!

What are your favorite Teacher Appreciation gifts to give (or receive!)? Have any go-to gifts? I need all the help I can get!!

  1. Well this time it doesn't looks like that you are sucking at gift giving and I think that this will be a good gift for you teacher. Hope that your teacher also likes it.

  3. Most businesses are online now thanks to the change in consumer trends. This makes communication a challenge and an opportunity for them to grow and engage with customers. This is why it is important to test the latest communication channels at your disposal. Emails, calls, websites and even connecting with a Mass Texting Service which is the most efficient one among them.
