Great creative teacher gifts for the first day of school or anytime. Give teachers gifts they will actually use!
Sometimes it’s hard to come up with creative teacher gifts that they will actually use. With three kiddos, we have been through a lot of teachers and it’s so cool to actually see them use a gift you gave them.
Here are a few creative teacher gifts that I kept seeing pop up on Pinterest and knew I had to make and the teachers loved them!
The start of the school year is an exciting time for everyone (I think for parents the most!) I love giving my kids’ teachers little teacher gifts to kick off the new year since they do so much for our kiddos.
Back to School Teacher Gifts
One year I was teacher appreciation co-coordinator for the whole school and I made these cute little notebooks for all 20 teachers! Here is a great video tutorial from Dawn’s Stamping Studio on how to make these cute post-it notes covers.
I found a pack of 4 little pens each at the dollar store to use and a huge pack of post-its at Costco. I put a stamp on the first post-it that read “Happy 1st Day of School!”. Then I put one in each teacher box. There are tons of different ways you can decorate from using stamps to flower embellishments, to ribbons, etc.
Have fun creating!
Teacher Survival Kits
Another simple idea that I saw quite a few of on Pinterest is the Survival Kit. I got a small plastic box at Joann’s (with a 40% off coupon!) and used my Cricut Explore Air™ to cut out adhesive vinyl.
Then I made a cut card with Cricut Locker Talk cartridge and added it with twine to front. I filled the container with paper clips, pens, chocolates!, glue sticks, alcohol pads, band-aids, tacks, erasers, and highlighters.
My kids hand it to their teachers when they walk into school the first day! Win win for the teacher and my kiddo!

If you make a lot of creative teacher gifts or any gifts for that matter, it is well worth the money to invest in a Cricut cutting machine. It ends up saving you money from all the easy and cute gifts you can make! Check out my Ultimate Resources Guide for the Cricut here!
