Sharing is caring!

Want to do something special for your child’s teacher this school year? Check out these 15 amazing back-to-school teacher gifts

It’s time!

Time for back to school.

Are you ready??

Because I’m not….*emotionally*.

Max will be starting 6th grade (middle school), and Jax will start Kindergarten and be riding the bus all by himself.

This is such a big year for our boys, and while I’m excited for them, I’m also incredibly anxious for them as well.

I know they’re tough and will do well…

But I’m just an anxious person when it comes to letting my kids do things on their own and removing the helicopter blades from the top of my head ;). 

So I’m channeling all of that anxious energy into crafting!

Crafting makes me happy, allows me to have a creative outlet, and helps me focus on the better half of scenarios. 🙂 

If you’re like me, you know and appreciate how little teachers are paid, and what an amazing impact the right teacher can have on your child’s life and the way they view the world.

I’ll always have a special place in my heart for teachers, so each year I try to make them gifts, get to know them better, and show our appreciation in every way I can.

This list has some amazing ideas and crafts you can make at home with your child to give to their new teacher to help show how much you appreciate them.

Here are 15 AMAZING Back To School Teacher Gifts…
