Looking for those End of the Year Teacher Gifts to say thanks for a job well done?
The end of the school year can be bittersweet. Everyone’s ready for a much-needed summer vacation, but at the same time, are saddened to see it go. As a former teacher, I remember those last days well. And receiving those special thank you gifts always made me feel special and appreciated.
So here are a few do-it-yourself ideas for those last minute Teacher Appreciation Gifts– or to just say thanks as we wrap up another school year.
Dollar Store Deals and Do-it-Yourself
All of these ideas are inexpensive and easy to complete. I bought all of my supplies for every project at a Dollar Tree (except for the flower and it was even on sale!), so every project can be made for about $5 tops.
1. Thanks for Helping Us BLOOM!
I sprayed a plastic pot to match the bloom on a beautiful dahlia I found on sale, created a cute printable tag, and attached the tag to a paper straw. Inexpensive, easy, adorable, and done.
Print the label for this Blooming Idea and add to your favorite bloom!
2. Teachers Make the World Brighter
Grab a clear jar (I found mine at the Dollar Tree) and add something bright! I used Lemon Heads
for a fun, nostalgic feel and tied a ribbon to the top. Teachers like treats, too!
Print your own Teachers Make the World Brighter label here and attach to your teacher’s favorite bright-colored treat:
3. Thanks for the Helping Hand This Year!
The Dollar Tree had fun manicure sets that were just the perfect fit for this project. Just fill the bottom of a jar with cotton balls, add the manicure set items, and top with just a few extra cotton balls to keep everything in place.

Jars with Lids make great containers for gift-giving. You can spray paint or add a ribbon, add your fun trinkets, and go!
4. Thanks for a JOLLY Good Year!
In case you missed it, I also featured this fun DIY teacher gift a few days ago. You can read that post–instructions and printable included–HERE.
