Teacher Appreciation Week .jpgTeacher appreciation week is May 5-10 and we are ready to shower our teachers with love and appreciation. To celebrate the date (5/5), we have selected 5 awesome, budget-friendly gifts that any teacher would love. We are also giving away these 5 gift ideas to 5 lucky winners so don’t forget to enter for your chance to win below.

Permission Pads

The first giveaway is courtesy of Permission Pads. Mindy started her company to help schools raise money more efficiently by selling these check-off-style permission pads. These fantastic pads allow you to simply check off boxes of the permission you need to give your child for the day and sign your name. If you are anything like me, writing a note to my sons’  teachers turns into a major morning hassle. I forget to write the note ahead of time, then never seem to have a sheet of paper on hand and the only writing utensil I can find is a paint brush or crayon – quite embarrassing! These note pads are simple, yet stylish. You can customize your pads to reflect your child’s interests or add your school’s logo and sell them for your next fundraiser. Don’t forget to add a magnetic strip so you can  hang it on your fridge for easy access. Lastly, Permission Pads is extending a 20% off coupon (good until 5/15) to all our readers. Coupon Code: 11MAGLANE.  Click {here} for styles.

This next gift idea and giveaway comes from Davina at MiniInk Finger Prints. Davina is giving away a Digital Finger Print Tree to one very lucky winner. I actually have ordered three of these trees to give as gifts this year. It is such a lovely keepsake and I know my teachers will be touched. I think the kids are going to love finger printing the tree as well and I cannot wait to see and hear their reactions. Check out all of Davina’s beautiful designs {here}.

  7. Jennifer Wilkinson says

    I woul love to bless my son’s teacher with any of these wonderful gifts!! Mrs. Kadi as been such an awesome, caring, loving, fun, understanding, patient (really I could go on and on and…. well you get my point!) She has gone above and beyond for my little guy. He started his new school this year and the pace is very different for him. His teacher could have just said, “Oh well, you didn’t get it, tough we are moving on” but NO she worked so hard with him and when it became clear he would need to repeat 1st grade, she didn’t miss a beat. She makes a spelling list just for him and gives him separate tests and books to read. I know this is all extra work for her, but she does it with a smile!!!! I can tell she loves all of her kids and would do this for each and every one of them if need be. She makes those kids feel so very special and I love when my little guys face lights up at the mention of her name. Twice this year she has sent him little notes of encouragement by snail mail that made his day 🙂

  8. What awesome giveaways! I am so appreciative of my stepsons teacher because she is helping to mold him into the young man he is going to be. She goes above and beyond to help him, teach him and train him.

  9. Staci Torgerson says

    I absolutely am so thankful for my girls teachers. They not only love my girls and daily guide them in learning in fun and creative ways but they also are she parading their hearts towards the Gospel…always with grace over flowing.

  10. My appreciate my sons teachers because they are caring and patient and he is so much happier. I love them! He goes to a school for autism for the past 2 1/2 years and they have been his happiest school days ever. He is 11 years old and they have done so much with him in the time he has been there. They are also helpful with me in ideas for living at home when I need advice. Thanks for the chance as always you have impeccable taste.

  11. Yeah Winners!
