End of the Year Teacher and Classmate Gift Inspiration

Sharing is caring!

We are finishing up Claire’s year in Preschool at a local Christian School.  She just adores her teachers they have really been a blessing this year!  She especially loves her music teacher, who calls her “the little composer” because she is always making up cute songs.  I wanted to be sure to give the teacher’s something to say “Thank you” for giving Claire such a wonderful pre-school experience.

So where did I turn for great ideas??

What did you think I come up with this stuff on my own… No no no!  Why re-invent the wheel…

Gift Idea for the Teachers:

This morning I found this great idea and knew it was “the one” the perfect gift..  (If you knew my love for Starbucks you would agree that this is quite possibly the best gift for me to give to anyone!).

These cute cups with their custom wraps, have a Starbucks gift card inside.

Let’s take a minute for a Public Service Announcement: Let’s be honest, teachers don’t want another mug, box of cookies or apple… gift cards are a GREAT gift for all of the time and hard work teachers put in each year! ( Don’t forget about your Sunday School Teacher’s, they deserve a little “thank you” now and then too!).  Ok, back to the gift ideas…

Gift Idea for the Classmates:


Since we will be homeschooling Claire next year I wanted to be able to give her classmates a little something too. I thought this would be a great way to share our phone number with friends that we would like to have play-dates with over the summer.

I found the cutest idea from Lisa Storms. Her site is FULL of great gift ideas!

These cuties are so easy to make… Grab her free printable HERE, cut them out and wrap them around little Miniature chocolate bars! I’ll tuck our phone number on a piece or paper inside for the parents!
