Teacher Appreciation Week is approaching at our school. What are some of your favorite gifts to give to teachers to show them how awesome they are. Do you stick to individual gifts? What about going in as a class to get one big gift?

I miss those days of my kids being in elementary school, because we loved giving gifts to their teachers!
Here are some of their favorite ones they gave over those years.
We combined the stationary and homemade gift into one, and made flower-print paper. It's pretty simple to do, you can probably find instructions online. Basically, the kids will find as many different colors of flowers they can, and then transfer the colors onto a nice parchment, or heavier cards took, paper. You can also use soft, colorful leaves for a more masculine variety. They turn out so pretty!
If your school still does class photos, you can make a homemade frame, embellishing it with the year, teacher's name, and class or school mascot.
You can also make a wreath out of new, unused tea bags, still in their pouches. Put it together with colorful clothespins, and when the tea is gone, the teacher still has something of use.
It is very thoughtful to thank your children's teachers for all of their hard work. The big all-class idea is an excellent choice as I am sure that teachers do not need all of the little gifts they so frequently receive.
I consulted my daughter, a teacher, to see what she and her colleagues appreciate most for teacher gifts.
Their list includes gift cards to any store, restaurant, or coffee establishment, candy (food items), and plants.
I hope insight helps.
