60+ DIY Teacher Appreciation Gifts

Teachers are amazing humans.  They spend all day helping children that are not their own learn to read, write, do math.  Or perhaps teaching them skills like how to play an instrument or build a robot.  I am grateful for them every day.  That is why I feel like taking time to make DIY teacher appreciation gifts for your child's teacher each year is just a small way I can say thank you.

Now maybe you are wondering why I like homemade gifts for teachers.  I think it tells them you really took time to think about them and create something just for them.  It might just be in my head, but I think anytime we can share our talents with others, it means more.

One time of year I like to show appreciation is during teacher appreciation week.  Giving a gift is such a small gesture of thanks.  Even a simple candy bar with a free printable can show your teacher you can and help them feel special.

Another great time to give teacher gifts is at the end of the year to say thank you.  It is the last opportunity you and your child can say, "thanks for taking care of me, teaching me and loving me".

I taught high school for 8 years.  I loved it.  Did I expect a gift from my students? No.  But when I got a gift, it meant a lot and showed me that this student really did care about me, what I taught and had a good year.  I still have many of those small gifts and cards.

Below is a list of great gifts that teachers will love.  Some of these gift idea have a tutorials to create a fun gift, others still come with a printable tag to add to a candy.  Whether you just want a quick, we thought of you gift tag or you want to spend a couple of days creating a custom gift, this list has got you covered.

Thanks teachers for all you do!!
