Teacher Appreciation Gift Card Idea and Free Printable

Today starts the beginning of one my favorite weeks of the year! Its Teacher Appreciation Week! If you forgot, no worries I’ve got you covered today with an easy idea that you can put together fast but will still show your teachers how much you care! Our teachers work so hard and I really want them to know how much we love and appreciate them.

Teacher Appreciation Gift Card

I am so excited to share the idea that our class put together for our teachers this year! Most teachers I have talked to say that gift cards are their favorite gift. I wanted to create a tag and gift that would go with gift cards. It was super easy for parents too!

First we got a Pikle bag for them. It is like a wallet but has everything you would ever need in it! Then we asked parents to donate gift cards. We put the cards in all the pockets until it was stuffed full!

Gift cards for Teachers

We had so many parents give cards that in the end we couldn’t get it shut! We left the amount and place up to each family and it was awesome to see the variety we got!

I had a few other ideas of how you could use this tag. You could  use a cute wallet to put the cards in

I also made it so that it  can be folded into a card if you are doing it as an individual gift for a teacher.

In order to get the card to print right, first print the front of the card. When the card comes out of the printer pick it up exactly as it is and feed it back into the paper tray.

Then print the second side. At that point you can cut it in half, fold it, and adhere the gift card.

      You still could use the idea. Just do it for birthdays, Christmas, the end or beginning of school.
