End of School Teacher Gifts

It feels like an eternity ago that I was a Teacher.   I always wanted to become either an Interior Designer or an Art Teacher.  I taught art for almost 10 years before staying home with my own two littles.  It’s crazy to me that now, in my own JorDecor way, I’m pursuing my other passion and sharing that pursuit with all of you.  Art and creativity will always be at my core, creating and helping others create whether it be something you hang on your walls or the cozy look of a space itself.   Creation comes in many forms, it is about releasing an expression, emotion, idea or vision.  Teaching elementary art was one of the most fun jobs.  I loved the amazement on kids faces when I taught them a new technique or introduced them to an artist or material they never heard of before.

As my own kids school year is now coming to an end I’m feeling nostalgic to all those end of year feels on the other end of it, as a a teacher.  I can related to how much those teachers are SOOOO ready for a break.  I also recall how exhausting it was, how the children become like your own.   You care for them, help them not only in subject matter but teach them about social skills, manners, kindness, acceptance and so many other valuable things on a daily.  I recall by the end of the year being drained; mentally, physically and emotionally.  Summer is the time when teachers restore themselves, renew their spark for education and regain the energy to do it all again the next year.

So this is why I have such an appreciation for my kids teachers and all teachers.  At the end of the year I try to make a little something special as a “Thank You” and as a “go enjoy your time off” because let’s face it, they’ve earned it.    This year I wanted to create a little pampering kind of gift. One of my favorite gifts from a student was a simple manicure gift card (and the inspiration for this years) I remember using it right after school on that last day of classes and treating myself.   It was the perfect start to summer.  Back in my Art Teachers days I never got my nails done because they were always covered in paint, sharpie or clay.  It was such a thoughtful and kind gift to receive.

The second gift idea is for the male teachers but it also doubles as a Father’s Day Gift too!  I’m also going to include the cards that I made so you can print your own if you’d like.  *read the end to get my tips on printing

SPA TEACHER GIFT IDEA

Mani Thanks Pink

Mani Thanks Yellow

I created these adorable “Mani Thanks” gift cards. For a Teacher Assistant or specialist if you wanted to do a little something and add the tags to a clear mini gift bag with a color polish and a clear top coat and then a little facial treatment- it’s the perfect little thank you.  For the Teacher if you wanted to also add a gift card to a local spa that would be amazing any teacher would love a little end of year pampering session.  I also found these adorable beach hats that say “Vacay all Day” and then tied the gift card around with the cute “Mani Thanks” around it with ribbon.

 

GOLF TEACHER GIFT IDEA (OR FATHER’S DAY GIFT)

Thankful FORE You!

For the guys how fun is this Golf themed gift card idea.  Find a local golf place and grab a gift card to hit balls and add it to this cute little bucket of balls.  I grabbed a bag of recycle balls that were a bit more affordable and some t’s.

I used the shredded paper to lift the balls up so I didn’t need to use as many. Then put the T’s in the center to hold the gift card in place.  But play around with the presentation to create something that works for you.

Recommendation for printing- cardstock paper works best.  When you go to print, select 6 copies to a page and it will shrink the photos down to the size you need.  If you use these I’d love for you to tag me so I can see how they turned out.

Thank you guys for stopping by and happy almost SUMMER!
