15 Inexpensive & Fun Teacher Gifts

Thursday, May 8th, 2014

Teachers work hard and invest so much into the lives of their students!  Here are 15 fun and inexpensive ways to say thank you to them.

Because teachers get a lot of gifts, in addition to being inexpensive I also tried to make sure that all of these ideas were practical as well.  Gift cards fit that description quite easily and, in my opinion and experience, they are always very well received.  So I also included several fun ways to present them too.



1.  Hands Down Soap Gift from Eighteen25
Simple, useful and cute!  And you can easily pick up great smelling hand soaps for just a couple of dollars making this super inexpensive.

2.  Soda-lighted Soda Gift from Tammy Mitchell Designs
While I’m not a soda drinker, I thought this was really adorable.  And if I were doing it, I think I’d make it special and healthier by using Izze Sparkling Soda.  (If you’ve never tried Izze you should.  It’s so good!)

3.  Tote-ally Awesome Tote from Skip to my Lou
What lady can’t use a cute new tote bag?  Skip to my Lou links to a couple of easy tutorials to make your own bag.  Or if you are like me and don’t enjoy sewing you could use one of these pretty Sachi Insulated Market Totes from Amazon.

4.  Tea-rific Tea Gift from Everyday Savvy
I love iced tea and think this tea themed gift is so fun!  I know I sure wouldn’t mind sipping my tea from a cup like this.  You should be able to find the cup at a craft store like Hobby Lobby or have this Copco Sierra 24-Ounce Cold Tumbler shipped directly to you.

5.  Starbucks Teachers Gift from Hi Sugarplum!
If you are wanting to give the ever popular Starbucks gift card, this is a really cute way to package it!  Or you can use this Thanks a Latte printable if you prefer.

6.  Sweet/Cool Gift Card Holder from Skip to my Lou
These fun, fresh looking gift card holders would work great with pretty much any gift card.  I especially like the “cool teacher” one paired with a Cold Stone gift card.

7.  Couldn’t Have Picked a Better Teacher from Dixie Delights
Here’s a cute healthy gift idea- and you can even use an old tomato or berry carton as the holder!  How’s that for creative recycling?

8.  Summer Relaxation Kit from The Lovely Cupboard
While this gift might be a bit more expensive than some, I think with a little thought you should be able to do it inexpensively too.  If you use coupons a lot you know that you can often get snacks and things like lotion, body wash and sunscreen for free or very cheap.  The dollar store or Five Below would also be a great place to look for fun items.  And you could even use a magazine that you already read- providing that it still looks new!

9.  Fortunate to have you as a Teacher Gift from 71 Toes
Isn’t this is a creative way to give a gift card to an Asian restaurant?  Party supply or craft stores should have the take out boxes or just use these Chinese Take Out Food Boxes.

10.  “Helping Me Grow” from Tiny Oranges
You may have noticed that succulents are super popular right now.  Use them to make this darling thank you gift or if you aren’t into succulents, simply add the note to a regular potted plant.

11.  Uh-Mason Teacher from Lil’ Luna
Mason jars are all the rage and this Mason jar cup gift is sure to be a hit.  Fill it will candy or even something like paper clips.  I think that Walmart and Target have the cups or order this 2-Pack Sipper Drinking Jar from Amazon.

For a limited time, One Kings Lane has a 4 ct. set of these jars for just $13!

12.  Sharp Minds Teacher Gift from Slice of Heaven
Teachers can always use more markers, right?  This is a neat way to give a practical gift and say thank you at the same time!  (See gift idea #4 for a link to buy cups like this.)

13.  Target Gift Card Holder from Landeelu
Who wouldn’t love a Target gift card?  And this gift card holder is so creative!

14Lemonade Gift from Lisa Storms
Another fun cup idea!  And if you don’t like the lemonade theme, simply fill the cup with something else and just use the “Quench for thirst” tag.

15Note of Thanks from Sweet Metal Moments
Stationary is always a useful gift and this pretty “Note” of thanks card is perfect to pair with any notebook, sticky notes, or journal.  And if the teacher was your child’s favorite, here’s another similar gift tag that works for that!
