Easy Teacher and Daycare Gifts {With Free Printables}

I love Pinterest.  I love seeing creative crafts and ideas for decorating, cooking and gift giving.  I also love time and my sanity.  I used to have lofty goals of homemade gifts for grandparents, teachers and babysitters.  I have come to terms with my reality that that isn’t going to happen.  

On a mission to combine my urge to create something handmade and personal with the fact that I simply didn’t have the time to do so, I came up with few fun, easy ideas.  

Does your child’s teacher love coffee?  {Are there actually individuals who work with kids all day that don’t?!}  Add this cute tag to a coffee mug or travel tumbler, pop a gift card for a great coffee shop inside and {if your child can} let them sign their own name!  I let my five year old choose the mug for his teacher and the thought that was so cool.  Download the coffee tag here.

Minnesota tends to be a bit chilly in the winter.  {That can be an understatement, right?}  I love outerwear as gifts.  It may not be the most creative idea, but practical and appreciated?  Yep.  Pick out some cozy mittens or gloves and tie them up with a pretty bow, print this tag and help keep your child’s teacher warm during those cold winter recesses.  Download the mitten tag here.

Confession: I do not have a green thumb.  My husband takes care of the flowers in the summer and we have one house plant that is in dire condition.  He has also taken over the care of that and has made it his mission to nurture it back to life.  With that being said, this is an adorable gift if you love plants or flowers. {Or if you know your teacher or babysitter does!}  I love the idea of a succulent in a mason jar.  Put some small rocks in the bottom of the jar, add soil and your succulent and wrap a cute ribbon around the top.  If that’s too much manual labor for you {I can totally relate} Buy an already potted succulent or other low maintenance plant and tie this cute tag around it.  This could be a great option if you have multiple teachers or daycare providers to give gits to this season. Download the succulent tag here. 

At the end of the day, it’s the thought that counts when giving gifts to your child’s teachers or daycare providers.  We hope that you enjoyed our ideas for fun ways to thank the ones who take care of our little ones every day!
