So thrilled to introduce you today to a dear sweet friend of mine – Katie from Palm Beach Farm. I love seeing all of Katie’s beautiful outfit inspirations and hearing her heart on Jesus and life with 3 boys. Katie also has a really amazing knack for finding cute, quality gift ideas, so I thought it would be fun to invite her to share a Back to School Teacher Gift Guide to help you score some brownie points with your child’s teacher as we start the year! I am not going to lie – I want ALL of these items for ME! 🙂
Hello to the lovely readers of Happy Home Fairy! My name is Katie from Palm Beach Farm, a style and fashion blog!
When I was asked by my dear friend Julie, a.k.a “The Happy Home Fairy,” to do a guest post on her blog, I was so honored! With the new school year just around the corner, Julie asked if I would share some of my back to school teacher gift ideas with her amazing readers. This wasn’t an easy task since, as you know, Julie is so creative and thoughtful and has given us so many wonderful ideas and inspirations for gifting throughout the years!
Giving gifts is one of my favorite things to do! I love to bless someone with the perfect gift that I know he/she will love. When it comes to buying gifts, my motto is the two P’s, Personal and Practical. Does the item represent that individual’s style and personality well and will they actually use it?
For your child’s new teacher, I am sticking to mostly practical gift ideas, since at this time you haven’t really gotten to know them quite yet. My suggestion is to learn about this person and what they love, so you can gift them with something more personal for the end of the year gift. The only bit of info you may have about this teacher before the school year, is their last name. You can use the last name initial for some monogram gift ideas, since that is about as personalized as you can get!
Getting your child’s teacher a gift will be sure to bless them as they embark on this new school year with your child. A first impression is such a memorable one and people will never forget how you made them feel.
I hope you enjoy my back to school Teacher’s gift guide!

Finally, another amazing way to bless your child’s teacher this year is to offer your time. Teacher’s can always use a helping hand – whether its cutting for a project, organizing the classroom, or volunteering at a class party. A great idea could be to make a homemade coupon that explains how you are offering your time or service this school year and the teacher can cash it in when help is needed!
I pray you and your precious kids have a wonderful school year. Thank you to Julie for allowing me share my love of gift giving with you all!
