Teacher Appreciation Gifts with DIY Flair

12 Semi-Homemade Teacher Gifts





It's that time of year again. The time when we thank the teachers of the world for taking our children in, educating them, caring about them, and let's be honest, giving us parents a break from them. :-) 









Like so many other Mom's, in times like these I struggle to decide what I should do for a gift, but thankfully the World Wide Web is full of ideas. I want to share a few of my favorites with you.





The idea that I am going with this year came from two different sources technically. My sister asked if she could buy 3 of our Mason Jar Soap Pumps to use as teacher gifts.

I decided that I was totally stealing that idea too, and then I found these Adorable Printables from Jamielyn at I Heart Naptime. Coupled with a gift card inside, I think this makes for such a cute and simple gift.
