More Last-Minute Teacher Gifts

more-last-minute-giftsLast year, we posted about last-minute teacher gift ideas if, like us, you tend to wait to the last minute. Here is a quick list of more last-minute teacher gift ideas that we thought were pretty brilliant:

Orange You Glad It’s Summer?” basket of goodies. Lynn is using this idea for her son’s Kindergarten teacher. So far, she’s acquired candied orange slices, an orange-patterned reusable tumbler, orange nail polish, Orbit orange gum, orange Tic Tacs, and orange (tangerine) lip balm. All that’s left is a thank-you card from the boy and a trip to the dollar store for an orange tote bag/basket.

Target Gift Card Holder. Who wouldn’t love a Target gift card? Pair one up with this free printable gift card holder and voilá! Clever, cute, and cool.

ABC Flowers. This really cute gift idea is just crying out for those preschool/daycare teachers! All you need is a mason jar, some plastic magnetic letters, a small plastic tube or container that fits inside the mason jar, and fresh flowers.

Thanks a Latte for All You Do. This free printable is shown tied to a Starbucks Frappacino. To make it a little more substantial a gift, add a Starbucks (or other coffee house) gift card. For an inexpensive gift for teacher’s aides or other school helpers (secretary? nurse? lunch lady?), you can skip the gift card and just go with the bottle Frappacino. Or premium latte mix. Whatever you can get your hands on!

Ball Mason Jar gifts. We’ve been looking for an excuse to buy those vintage blue mason jars from Ball, and here is a great one! The Country Chic Cottage has free printable labels with witty sayings like “It’s a Ball being in your class” and “You’re on the Ball…Thanks for being a great teacher!” to put on jars filled with goodies and treats for that special teacher in your life. These jars can be found in most grocery stores, Wal-mart, and Bed, Bath, & Beyond. (Don’t forget your 20% off coupon at BBB!) Or, if you take advantage of Amazon Prime, you can order them online and get them tomorrow.

And finally, why not a sincere thank you card from your child? This works especially well for older children. We all need validation now and then that we matter, and teachers are absolutely no different! A warm letter or card telling a teacher what they have meant to your child would probably be treasured more than almost any other gift you can give them. MaryAnne at Mama Smiles has her children write heartfelt thank you cards every year.

Share any other ideas you have for last-minute teacher gift ideas in the comments section. Happy Summer!
