It’s Teacher Appreciation Week.  If you’re a teacher reading this, thank you for all you do each and everyday in the classroom.  If you’re a teacher-mom or dad or a parent looking to thank the special teacher in your child’s life, this post is for you.  I’m sharing 3 Teacher Appreciation Week gift ideas that every teacher will love.

Let’s skip the mugs and give teachers what they really want – gift cards!  Here are three print and go ideas…

Amazon Gift Card Printable Notes

Teachers love Amazon.  This Amazon Gift Card Notes Resource includes a variety of font options for you to choose from.  Simply print out the option you like best.  Then, have your child write the teacher’s name at the top and sign their name at the bottom.  Last, attach the Amazon gift card with scotch tape and place in an envelope.  It will look AMAZing!

Coffee Gift Card Printable Notes

Teachers run on caffeine, so treat your child’s teacher to their favorite drink!  This Coffee Themed Gift Card Note Resource includes a plethora of options for you to print, sign, and attach a card to Starbucks, Dunkin’, or any local coffee shop.

Target Teacher Appreciation Gift Card Notes

Amazon, coffee, and who can forget Target?!  Rounding out the list of Teacher Appreciation Week gift ideas is this Target Printable Gift Card Notes Resource.  Like the other two resources, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from!  Pick the design you like best, print, and have your child sign it.

Please note that these designs are not editable due to copyright.  They look even more perfect with your child’s own handwriting than anything that can be typed!

You can snag all three gift card notes PLUS editable Thank you Notes in this BUNDLE!

Teacher End of the Year Gifts

Keep in mind that it doesn’t have to be a large amount.  Attaching a $5 gift card is perfect.  If that is not in the budget, simply have your child make the teacher a homemade card.  I treasure the cards my students make me in their kindergarten handwriting.  I have also saved special notes and cards from parents over the years.

May you or the special teachers in your life right now feel loved and appreciated this week.
