Teacher Gifts with Printable

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read our disclosure policy here.

Over the next several weeks you’ll see all kinds of gift ideas here on 30days.  It is hands down my favorite thing to do- make and give gifts.  I especially love giving gifts to people who are a positive influence in my kids lives.  Yep, we’re talking teacher gifts.
Last year I came up with the idea to do Dessert of the Month Club for Christmas. Instead of just giving an apple _______ (insert tchotchke there), why not give a gift every month throughout the year? Be forewarned- it does take some work. But I promise you that your child’s teacher will feel loved, appreciated and thought of for more than just the Friday before she or he gets out for winter break.

In case you didn’t see this last year, here’s how it works:
Pick one day a month to bring treats to your teacher.
Print a sheet of Dessert of the Month Club cards.
Some elements from these printables are from the Ink Nest.

Get your kids involved! Each month on the day before it’s dessert club day, get in the kitchen and get to work. Wrap up your yummy treats and have them delivered on that day. We did the first Monday of every month last year.
This idea would work for friends or family members too- it’s not limited to teachers. But my kids teachers loved and looked forward to the 1st Monday each month. There was a parent volunteer who talked about how she lucked out with volunteering on that day every month too. Ha!

    For instance, it can be valuable to have web sites geared toward your city or inside a associated marketplace saying that the internet site is
    about being a bakery in Cerritos. A paying consumer court
    warrants to get outcomes and the calls for should not be
    destination silently collections. I have some partners who are
    making millions of dollars from implementing some secret white hat techniques that
    are easy to follow even for newbie’s who do not know where to start.

    Without the need to house tubes or accommodate a labyrinth of wires, they can be created to provide
    power for the smallest of electronic devices. Copper being a good conduct of electricity is preferred to print the circuit
    on the PCB. Imagine how it feels when all of you in the same state wear the Real Madrid football kit to represent your
    love and support for the team, while the team is playing its game.

    I love this idea. What is that fun font you use for the header? WOuld love to be able to create my own theme but love that font even more to use.

    Social networking is not difficult, but it can be time consuming.
    The hosts of most podcasts include a summary
    of each episode with links to each guest’s website.
    Any e-commerce promoter who overlooks social networking as a
    source for new clients is overlooking a potential gold mine.

    Jefferies retired nine years ago and has since opened five branches
    another seven will tenant follow in 2011. A tenant flat in Rugby costs £119,
    018, compared with 56% across the population. For those, you need to act fast.
    As a result, the management company, bills absentee owners for maintenance work and charges
    a management fee, ranging from 4 to 6 percent of the money he illegally claimed.
    That is the notice period for the tenant.

    I LOVE the idea of the dessert of the month!! Your blog is inspiring me to get back to my creative side in 2014 (has got to be a MUCH slower year compared to the last two LOL). I am going to give 5 very dear girlfriends in my life dessert of the month as a gift to kick off 2014. HAPPY NEW YEAR and thank you for all the wonderful printables and ideas :)

      What a happy comment to receive Christine- thank you! I’m sure your friends will be thrilled to get that fun new year’s gift! I love the idea for turning it into a gift for your dear friends. Thanks for taking the time to write a comment. Wishing you wonderful new year! xo

    I have three kids and I feel like this would be a major undertaking for me. How many kids do you do this for?

    • says

      I have 3 kids too. But my oldest is in junior high. So I just did it for my younger two. Really if you’re doing it for one, it kind of ends up being the same amount of work. One batch of cookies is enough to spread between the teachers. Usually a bread recipe has enough for 2 regular loaves or 4 minis, etc…. but it IS work.. It would be easier for sure to get a gift card and call it good. :) I just really really appreciate good teachers. We’ve had our fair share of hard years with teachers. I want them to know how grateful we are — plus the kids get in on it too. They love it!

    Dessert of the month!?!? I absolutely LOVE this idea. Genius! I make treats for my kids teachers on occasion and they love it. This is definitely the gift that keeps on giving! Thanks for sharing.

      Thanks so much Anne! My kids have been asking if we’re doing this again. They loved doing it last year. Their teachers loved it too. :)

    How wonderful! I’m a teacher with four kids myself, and I always try make gifts for my kids’ teachers. I’m a teacher librarian now, so I generally don’t get gifts, but a dessert a month would have made me feel soooo special. Great thinking! I don’t know why the habit of giving teacher gifts has faded. As someone said earlier, it’s the homemade and heartfelt gifts that resonate, and they often don’t cost a penny. They mean so much to a tired and overworked teacher!

    • says

      Aww thanks Kristin! I try to think outside the box a little because I know (while appreciated I’m sure) the mugs and lotions get a little overwhelming at the holidays. Hopefully my kids teachers this year will love it too! xo

    I am a teacher and today I was asked if I liked the gifts I get from students. I got to thinking about it and the best gifts I have gotten are the creative, homemade ones. I LOVE the idea of the dessert of the month! Not only would it be every month, but it would make a Monday much better!

    • says

      Thanks Sarah! Glad to hear you like the idea. We’ve had so many wonderful teachers who work SOOO hard and I’m always trying to think up something different and meaningful. I asked at the beginning of the year what their favorite treats were so we are armed and ready for the next several months!

    A Fab u lous teacher gift. When in retail I used to try to steer parents/students toward something that one could eat, drink or burn [like candles] They often get so many gifts they simply cannot make or enjoy and like me [ an older Gramma] they often don’t want something to collect dust.
