7 Unique Teacher Appreciation or Holiday Gift Ideas |FREEBIE PRINTABLES|

Unique Holiday Teacher Gifts

As you all know, I am a party printable designer, dessert baker, and sweets stylist, but some may not have known that I am also a teacher. In other words, I may be clandestinely writing a “wish list” for myself right now (shhhhh….don’t let the secret out).

I very much look forward to creating tasty treats with clever messages for my boys’ teachers. Recognizing the effort and time that they devote to my children with a sweet gesture is the least I could do. Afterall, they are molding the minds of our future care providers:)

Additional TIPS:

**** Do not hesitate to give a gift earlier than the actual holiday, perhaps the week before, particularly if it is food. Many students give edible items, but a belly can only squeeze in so many treats at once, especially the day before a big holiday feast!

**** If there are multiple teachers or support staff in the room or on the “teaching team,” try giving one large gift, such as a box of cookies. It usually is more cost-effective and allows the team to share, indulge, and enjoy! Again, perhaps a week early, would be a nice surprise:)
