Today marked the last day of school for my youngest kiddo, a bittersweet day for sure. My mom always sent in a plant for the teacher on the last day of school, and I’ve handed down the tradition to my kids too. My friend B. gave me the great idea of using an Anthropologie mug and filling it with goodies (she does personalized M&Ms, genius!) So I purchased mugs for the teachers and had my kids pick out the flowers to place inside. This simple idea was a hit, so I thought I’d share 20 other teacher gift ideas (as a former teacher, I can attest these are ones they’ll actually use!) from around the internets. Enjoy!

I seriously can’t believe it’s the end of the school year already, and the end of the preschool years for our family. Time, slow down!
Do you send end-of-the-year teacher gifts? What’s your favorite thing to give (or, if you’re a teacher, receive)?
