Teacher gifts your kids can totally make at home

Kids want to go out of their way to score brownie points with their favourite teacher, but it’s often up to mom or dad to help them get there. Here are some cool teacher gifts you can help your kids make to show their teachers some gratitude and appreciation.


Fun teacher gifts DIY

Monogrammed Mugs

It’s easy to make your own decorative mugs at home. All you need is a little help from Pinterest, some sharpies, and an oven. Once you’re done with the design, have your kid fill these teacher gifts with hot cocoa mix, some fancy teas or coffees or a vintage spoon to seal the deal.


Personalised Flower Pot

Here’s a unique way to give thanks for a year’s worth of growth: a hand-painted pot! It can be a fun weekend craft that your kids will enjoy creating for their teacher.


Fun Soap

Hand soap is a staple in any classroom, so why not help your kids dress up a bottle of hand soap as a gift for their teacher? Remove the label and replace it with a fun label template.


Pretty Cookie Jar

Why not help your kids make their own teacher appreciation cookie jar? You can easily print a fun label and then knock out a batch of your family’s famous choc-chic treats. For some extra credits, include the recipe in the jar.


Bead Bowls

Making bead bowls is super fun and really easy too. You can check out a tutorial like this one from Pinterest and them have your kid give it to their teacher to use as a prettier way to stash supplies in the classroom next year.


A Perfect Jar

For a small and sweet thanks at the end of the year, fill some mason jars with school supplies, cookies, air plants, and anything else your kid’s teacher would love. Add some personalized labels to the jar and your kiddo is ready to go.


Personalised Crayon Wreath

The ideas out there for personalised wreaths are really endless, and we reckon that a crayon wreath is an ideal fit for this situation. You can find a few tutorials on Pinterest, but they’re really not that hard to make. Once the wreath is made, your kid’s teacher can hang it up in the classroom to kick the next year (or term) off on a high note!
