Hi all, it's Erica from Erica's Ed-Ventures. Are you stumped as to what to get your child's teacher? We have all seen this pin:
To help you out and of course as a public service to teachers everywhere, I asked my Facebook teacher fans to share with me their favorite end of the year teacher gifts! Click on the images to find the sources!
The consensus of my face book pole...It does not have to be some sort of Pinterest inspired crafty master piece. The most coveted gift: a letter of thanks from the heart! If you are so inclined to write a letter of thanks, it would be wonderful if you could send a copy to the building principal and/or the school superintendent. Teachers are modest people and would not share the letter on their own. I have made these letter templates for you to download for FREE, just click the image below!

I asked her mom if I could make a version to share on my blog and she said yes! Click the image to download and create your own gift card book. I have included a black line version and color.
Another clever way to display gift cards is in bouquet form:
This idea was shared by a lovely fb follower!
It's no secret that Teachers Pay Teachers is THE favorite site of teachers everywhere. So, why not give the teacher in your life a gift certificate to TpT?
Thanks to the lovely Kim Adsit for posing for this picture.
Themed baskets are also great and visually appealing. Here is another shared by a fb follower:
