Teacher Gift – Plants

Each year, I like to give my childrens’ teachers a gift for Teacher Appreciation Week, as well as the end of the year.  This simple, inexpensive gift could work for either.

For my younger son’s 3 nursery school teachers, we used these adorable chalkboard plant markers and planters that I found in the dollar spot at Target, along with some pink geraniums.  I purchased the geraniums in a 6 pack at the grocery store for $10 right before Mother’s Day, which conveniently coincides with Teacher Appreciation Week (You could also use these for Mother’s Day by simply altering the chalkboard message!).  On the marker I wrote “Thanks for helping me grow this year” using a paint pen (found at AC Moore) so it wouldn’t come off.

For my older son’s kindergarten teacher and aide, I purchased flattened silver spoons that had the phrase “Teachers plant seeds of knowledge that will grow forever” pressed into them (from JLynnCreations on Etsy).

 We packaged each plant in a gift bag from the dollar store.  Such simple gifts and we received nothing but thank yous and compliments from all of the teachers.
