Inside: 10+ end of the year best and thoughtful teacher gifts for all grades
I am going to begin by stating the obvious.
Teachers do appreciate a cash donation.
Money that they do not have to spend in their classroom. Money that they do not have to pay the water bill with. I am talking cash that they can walk right out the door when that 3 pm bell rings and take to Athleta. (not mentioning any names here)
One option for this is to have the room mom collect cash donations to present alongside a homemade class gift.
On the other hand, teachers ALSO really appreciate an end of the year gift that is made by their students.
In fact, I have several that still decorate my home to this day.
I’ve searched some of my favorite bloggers for these 10+ end of the year class gifts.
You will love what I found.
Self Portrait Vase:
I was given this thoughtful class gift in 2003 and still have it in my home! In fact, it is one of my all-time favorite class gifts. I moved with it FOUR times!
Allow the students to each draw their self-portrait on the shrink paper.
Follow the directions to shrink and adhere to the vase with a hot glue gun.
Add names with a permanent marker next to each picture.
*Tip: Use a colored vase to hide the glue marks

For this thoughtful class gift, each child wrapped the wire around a circle to create this wire hanging wreath. Again, this is one of my favorite end of the year class gifts that I will always take with me.
Although not the same project, I found this wire tutorial to help you get started.
