DIY Mason Jars are a great way to make something pretty, practical, or plain fun for teacher appreciation week. Teachers work hard throughout the year, and nothing will put a smile on their face like a thoughtful, personalized jar full of goodies. Fill your mason jar with anything from flowers to plants, candy, or school supplies. For the more adventurous, you can get creative and decorate the jar with paint or cutouts. This one wins teachers over everywhere.
Teacher appreciation week, or a teacher’s retirement, is the perfect time to give back to some of the most caring, hardest working people in our lives. Teaching isn’t easy, and no one is more deserving of a thoughtful gift than those who guide our way at school. Don’t hesitate to get creative when you give back: instead of buying the same old gifts for teacher appreciation week, make your own! Craft something unique, share your memories in a beautiful book, or take them somewhere special.
No matter how you do it, celebrating your teacher with a unique thank you gift is sure to put a smile on their face. We hope we’ve given you some ideas for great ways to say thanks, brighten their day, and shine a light on their many brilliant accomplishments.
