So, I still can’t decide on teacher gifts and I’m running out of time! We do try to give our teachers a homemade gift when we can, a little something from our home to show our thanks and appreciation. Jars of pickles or jam, usually with a gift card for Starbucks or Tim Hortons thrown in.

This year I was thinking a crocheted dish cloth with a bottle of all natural cleaning spray. Is that odd?

Maybe a crocheted face cloth with a bar of handmade soap like this one via Kundhi?

Maybe a jar of homemade lemon sugar scrub via The Beauty Department. Perfect for sloughing the skin and keeping that tan dewy and smooth. With a crocheted facecloth, of course.

I really love the idea of making a bottle of homemade vanilla via Bethany Actually. This would make a beautiful gift any time of year.

I was thinking of putting together some custom stationery and book plates. Hmmm, what to do, what to do. What are your favorite crafty teacher gifts?

Some of my favorite quick and easy teacher gift ideas

It’s the last week of school in Ontario! So naturally, I’m thinking of teacher gifts this week. Since I only have a couple of days to get something together, it’s got to be easy to pull together or crafty.

I like our end of school gifts to be a sweet gift meant to spoil or treat our teachers to something sweet over the summer. I have put together a couple of these ideas for past teachers and they were always well received, but I don’t have a staple end of school teacher gift. Hmm, maybe I should work on that.

Are you putting something together a little last minute too? Maybe some of my favorite (and quick and easy) teacher gift ideas will help you pull together a perfect thank you!

A reusable travel cup filled with packets of iced tea via Lisa Storms. Maybe even tuck a little gift card in there.

Decoupaged scissors with the cutest “You’re a cut above the rest!” tag via Crap I’ve Made. These would also be perfect for your favorite hairstylist!

A hit the beach kit to start the summer off right via The Rachel Berry Blog. Wrap a towel, sunblock, magazine and a snack and attach card. I am really liking this one!

I have always been a firm believer in edible gifts or gift cards for teachers, so I love the “Thanks a latte for all that you do” gift card holder via Skip to my Lou.

Which is your favorite?
