Teacher Gift Ideas 20 DIY Teacher Gifts from Parents or Kids

Our collection, Teacher Gift Ideas: 20 DIY Teacher Gifts from Parents or Kids, provides you with the best homemade teacher gifts that you can give to say, "thanks!" Teachers mold the minds of our children and help shape their lives beyond education.

Their hard work throughout the year sometimes feels underappreciated. These teacher gift ideas will show them you appreciate all they do for you and your children every year. These homemade gifts include free printables, kid-friendly crafts, and the best DIY gifts for teachers from parents.

Many of these "thank you" teacher gifts can be displayed on their desk all year or taken home. They are beautiful and useful crafts. Most of them are also fast and budget-friendly. Your favorite teacher will love the homemade teacher gifts from kids as much as they will from the parents.

Kids will feel special when they make a gift on their own to give to their teacher at the start or end of the year. We hope you like these incredible back to school crafts just for the most important educators in our lives.

Printable Teacher Gift Ideas

The Best Handmade Teacher Gift

Free printables are the best kinds of gifts for many reasons. They are cheap and easy, but they are also super pretty and useful with little work on your part. Below you will find a myriad of teacher gift ideas, from printable gift tags to apple-themed paper crafts that will come in handy during class time.

There's even a hilarious wine bottle label craft that reads, "Thank you for teaching our kid to think. Kick off the summer with a drink." As hard as they work, they deserve it!

Homemade Gifts for Teacher

Teacher Flower Gifts

From beautiful flower bouquets to pens and a tea-rific drink and mug set, that special teacher in your life will absolutely love these teacher appreciation gifts. Homemade teacher gifts are not difficult to make and will be greatly welcome by the recipient. She or he will want to keep these gifts for years to come.

Some of these teacher gift ideas are pretty pieces of decor for the classroom and others are useful tools for school or work. You don't have to spend a lot of time or money to make something that they will enjoy.  

Thank You Teacher Card Ideas

Teaching Award Ribbon Card

Show your teacher they are #1 with one of the sweetest handmade cards for teachers we are featuring in this section. These are the best thank you teacher cards we have on the site and for good reason. Make a handmade card instead of buying one.

It will always be even more thoughtful and impressive. If you don't have time to make complete DIY teacher gifts, these handmade cards for teachers will be just as appreciated. Or, double up with homemade teacher gifts and cards for all your favorite teachers!

Kid-Friendly DIY Teacher Gifts

Apple Leaf Card and Snack

Some of the above ideas have been a little bit more of an adult skill level, however, below you will find the kid-friendliest DIY gift crafts for teacher. Kids will love making these origami or other fun apple crafts, along with the most amazing coffee filter paper flowers.

These DIY paper flowers are so beautiful that the teacher will not believe their student made them, but they can say they did! Your children will be excited to give their teachers these homemade gifts, and they will be excited that they made them on their own (or with a little help from mom and dad), too.
