20 DIY Gift Ideas for Teachers

By  | Last Updated:  

Teachers play a huge part in shaping the future of our kids. As the school year winds down, let your children’s teachers know you recognize and appreciate their classroom efforts with these great DIY gift ideas. There are gift jars, a gift box, gift mugs, a monogram wreath, a crayon candy dish and a crayon chalkboard sign. The chalkboard style is also used on a cool globe idea and a cute planter. One of my favorite ideas is the watercolor gift bags. You’ll find suggestions for using clever word play to go with gifts: You Color Our Lives, Hands Down You’re the Best, Owl Miss You, You’ve Blown My Mind, Thanks for Pushing Me, Thanks for Quenching My Thirst, You’re the Hi-Lite, Thanks A-Latte, Take Note, and Soda-Lighted You’re My Teacher. What a terrific way to say, “Thanks!”
