8 Great Teacher Gifts

8 teacher gifts

Teachers work hard and it’s nice to give them a little token of appreciation at the end of the school year.  It does not have to be fancy, or even wildly expensive. It just needs to be something to say thanks.  Here are some easy to make and super cute teacher gifts that you can give to your child’s teacher.

Pencil Case Vase

Grab your glue gun and let’s go! You can make a super cute vase that could double as storage on a teachers desk with just a couple packages of no. 2 pencils from the dollar store and a tall class container. You’ll need to use glass because gluing onto plastic will only cause melting. All together you can make this cute vase for under $9! Check out the details at Cincy Shopper.
