The Perfect Teacher Gift Ideas

teacher gift

Well, “Back to School” is in full swing. Some of you are sad… and some of you are jumping for joy ?? No matter which side of the hallway you’re on, I think we can all agree that teachers are superheroes. To thank our teachers for being the inspiring leaders they are, we have some fabulous teacher gift ideas!

Classroom Sign

Teachers always go above and beyond to decorate their classrooms in a way that’s inviting for the kids. Grab your friends and paint a custom sign they can put up in their classroom with their name and/or grade level! She’ll feel so special that you made something just for her with your own hands! Bet you didn’t know you could be so crafty!

Teacher Gift Cards

Want to give your kid’s teacher an experience she’ll never forget? There’s no better way to unwind after a long day or week than a night out with some friends, with a little wine and art! Believe me, she’ll thank you a million times for this teacher gift! These are perfect for a welcome gift, holiday gift or Teacher Appreciation gift!

Arrange a Private Event for Teachers

If no gift seems enough for your kid’s teacher, talk to the principal to arrange an offsite event just for the teachers of the school!  Get some parents together to help sponsor the event or cover any offsite event fees.  Think the school could use a fundraiser? Talk to your local Painting with a Twist studio to see about hosting a Painting with a Purpose event, where 50% of the proceeds go to a special cause!

There’s no denying that teachers are such a special part of our kids’ lives. Give them something out of the ordinary to honor their superhuman status! They definitely deserve the recognition!

So there you have it, it’s healthy for your relationship!

  • TO POST OR NOT TO POST?

You are going to have a TON of adorable and funny photos from the weekend. But before you go to town posting on social media, check with the bride! If she’s ok with photos, then make it extra fun and create a hashtag for the party!
