Teacher Appreciation is coming up! Are you looking for some easy and inexpensive teacher appreciation ideas?? You’ve landed in the right spot! I have a bunch of different ideas for you that are easy and inexpensive.
Teacher Appreciation Week Ideas
Depending on your school, you might do a whole week of Teacher Appreciation at the beginning of May. Our elementary school does a little something everyday for the teachers and staff. Each class does their own little things and the PTA usually does one big luncheon.

DIY and Personalized Teacher Gifts
I love to give personalized gifts to everyone! It just adds that extra touch of love when someone makes a handmade gift or gets one customized. These can be as easy as using some sharpies on a mug to using your electronic cutting machine to add their name or favorite quote onto something little.
Use Sharpies again to make a cute canvas book bag (click here for tutorial!)
Or give them a personalized etched vase or glass. Click here for glass etching tutorial!
