Teacher Appreciation Gifts – Flower Pot

One of the daily themes during our teacher appreciation week is flowers.  My “Thanks for Helping Me Grow” flower pot I made a few years ago is still one of my favorite teacher appreciation gifts.  And one of my most popular posts, which means lots of you out there like it too!

So I asked my friend Carli with Dimpleprints to make me a “Thanks for Helping Me Grow” gift card tag so I could update my flower pot gift and we could give it to my daughter’s teacher on flower day.

I recreated the same flower pot using my previous tutorial, which you can find here.  Then I planted some flowers in the pot.

I attached a gift card to the free printable from Dimpleprints and secured it to a bamboo skewer.  I stuck the stick down in the flowers and now we have a thank you gift that shows our teacher just how much we appreciate her!

Teachers really do help students grow and I hope you’ll take the time to say thank you to the special teachers in your child’s life.  In case you missed it I also shared ideas and free printables for teacher appreciation gifts here, here, here and here!  Which gift do you think your teacher would appreciate the most?

  3. Rachel campbell says:

    Is there any way to get the gift card to say “thank you for helping us grow” instead if me?
    I hope to use this as part of a class gift to my daughters teachers.
    Thank you!

  4. Sadly… I am trying to print these tags that are the pencils “Teachers lead in the Write direction”. It is super late and I need this for tomorrow. Hoping you get this soon & can email me the PDF.

    Thanks!!

  5. Rachel campbell says:

    You are the best…..thanks so much!

  6. What kind/type of paint do you use for the pot?

    • Mariah says:

      Amy, I’ve done them a few different ways. I’ve used chalkboard spray paint, chalkboard paint and just plain black acrylic craft paint, they all work great and allow you to write on them with chalk.

  7. Can you send me the file? Tomorrow is the last day of school and I have been trying to print these for days and I am having difficulty!
    Thank you in advance.

    • Mariah says:

      Karen, check your email I’ve sent you the PDF. Let me know if you are still having trouble.

  8. Angela says:

    Please send me the PDF too?! I’ve painted and ready to print :/ Thanks :)

    • Mariah says:

      Angela, I’ve sent it to you. Check your email and let me know if you have any trouble with the file I sent. Thanks.

  9. This is super adorable! My girls are only in daycare, so our teacher appreciation week is this week to accommodate last week’s “graduation” to “big school.” :) This is perfect for them to give to their teachers!! Would you mind emailing me the pdf file as well? I’ve been trying to print but haven’t had any success. Thanks so, so much!

  10. Christy says:

    Can you please email the PDF to me as we’ll. thanks.

    • Christy, I have updated the link so you might give it another try. I’ve also emailed the file to you just in case you are still having trouble. Thanks!

  11. Tiffany says:

    Such a cute idea!
    Question:
    What type of gift card would be appropriate, movies, dinner, Costco – and money wise, what would be a considerate amount, but sincere. Is it proper etiquette to even give a gift card to teacher? Thanks!!

    • Thanks. Teachers love gift cards, they are practical gifts they can use! If you know your teachers favorite restaurant or store buying a gift card to that location is ideal, if not then you can also get a more generic card to a store like Target or a Visa card. Depending on what other gifts I am giving I like to do a gift card for $15-25.

  12. Michele says:

    Could u send me the file please :) thanks!

  13. Would it be possible to get the updated pdf for a class gift, with the wording change to “thank you for helping us grow”? Thank you!

    • Andrea, I sent you an email with an updated version of the tags. Let me know if you need anything else!

  14. Janexy Segui says:

  15. Love your site and all your ideas, I’m trying to print the thanks for helping me grow sheet and it won’t print in color; wondering if that is the issue others were having as well? Of course, I need to print them today as the kids last day of school is tomorrow; if you could please send me PDF that would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks!
