Gift Ideas for Teachers

Years ago my sister in law showed me what she made for her kid’s end of year teachers gifts and I thought it was brilliant! This awesome teacher’s appreciation idea has become our family’s go-to teacher’s gift each and every year. What teacher wouldn’t love a summer bag with goodies for the beach or pool?!

This year, I made a gift tag to include with these bags and I’ve made it available as a free download so you can print one for your teacher too!

Beach Bag Gift Ideas for Teachers

We usually fill the bags with fun summer items, such as:

  • Beach Towel
  • Magazine
  • Sunscreen
  • Your teacher’s favorite snack
  • Bottled Water or soda
  • Handwritten note from your child

We make sure we also add personal items that we know about our teachers too. For example, one year my daughter had a teacher with a crazy obsession with scented markers, so we made sure we added a package of those. Another year my son’s teacher was crazy about Cherry Dr. Pepper, so we included some of those too. The personal touches usually mean the most, so don’t forget to add those things along with the fun summer things!
