Looking for some easy teacher appreciation gift ideas under $20? I’ve got you covered!
Teacher Appreciation Week is quickly approaching so it’s time to start thinking about how you can say thank you to those great men and women in your kid’s lives.
Year after year teachers seemed to be pushed to the max. Navigating everything they do on a daily basis is no easy feat. As a former teacher, I speak from experience.
While a nice card with a handwritten note is just as good as any gift. However, if you’re feeling extra generous I’ve put together a list of 10 teacher appreciation gift ideas under $20. Most of these can even be created for under $10. All of them are things I would have personally loved to receive.

Easy Teacher Appreciation Gift Ideas Under $20
Thanks for Making Learning Fun, Now it’s Time to Relax in the Sun!
This is the perfect gift with summer right around the corner. Put together a little package with everything your child’s teacher might need for a day by the pool or at the beach. Some suggestions of what you could include are a towel, sunscreen, sunglasses, or a good book (all under $20). If you want to go all out you could even put it all in a cute beach bag!
Thanks for helping me GROW
A plant is always a great gift. I personally love orchids…thankfully my husband knows how to keep them alive. This is a quick and easy last-minute gift that requires no prep.
Thank you for Bee-ing a Great Teacher
This Burt’s Bees gift set which is under $10 would make the perfect thank you gift. I love all of their products and think this is such a cute idea. If you want to spend a little more you could put together a basket with some of the full-sized products instead.
Just a NOTE to Say You’re a Great Teacher
While I’d steer clear of boring school supplies that most schools already provide, a nice notebook and some fun pens are items most teachers would love. The Erin Condren notebooks are some of the best and you can even choose a teacher-themed personalized cover. If you want to keep it under $10 you could go with one of these options:
Don’t forget about some good ink pens. My top three favorites are these by Tul, these and these colorful ones.
Sip Sip Hooray…Happy Teacher Appreciation Day!
This could be a little taboo for some schools/teachers depending on your relationship with them, but this may be my favorite gift on the list! Again, you can tailor the cost of this gift to the bottle of wine you want to buy, and you could include one of these cute teacher-themed glasses too!
Thanks for Being a TOE-tally Awesome Teacher
This would be a cute gift idea for the women teachers in your child’s life. Again, you can customize this gift to be as inexpensive or elaborate as you would like. Include some nail polish, toe separators, files, and lotion. It’s the perfect gift now that summer is approaching.
You’re Nacho Average Teacher
Chips and queso??? Yes, please! This Mexican-themed gift basket would be perfect to say gracias to any teacher. Just gather together a bag of chips and all the toppings for nachos…salsa, queso, jalapenos, and anything else you want to throw in.
Thanks for Keeping Me SHARP This Year
Another fun school supply that teachers love is Sharpie markers. Fill a cute tumbler with a pack of Sharpie markers, attach the fun tag and you’ve got a colorful and practical gift.
I DONUT Know What I’d Do Without a Teacher Like You
If there is one thing I know about teachers it’s that we love to eat! Stop and grab some donuts before heading to school and attach the cute tag and you’re good to go with a yummy treat your child’s teacher will surely love.
I was MINT to be in your class
The final gift idea is themed around mint products. Take a quick trip to your local convenient store or Target and grab all the mint-flavored items you can find. Get creative- gum, candy, mint chocolate, mint tea, or mint-flavored lip gloss are just a few suggestions of what you could include in this gift.
I hope you find some of these easy teacher appreciation gift ideas helpful! Remember the most important thing is that you just take a minute to say THANK YOU for all the hard work your child’s teacher is doing.
