FANtastic Teacher Gifts Teachers Will Love

Posted by  ·  August 18, 2018  ·  Last Updated: August 18, 2018

Need FANtastic teacher gifts? This teacher appreciation gift uses a cool phone fan to let your teacher know they are FANtastic. I love thinking of items that pair with  cute sayings to make fun gifts.  I usually always share a printable gift tag to make it super easy to thank your teacher. It is easy to  show your appreciation with a meaningful gift made just for them. I am all about finding the best teacher gifts to show these often underpaid  and overworked role models just how much they mean to us and our children.

Phone Fan Teacher Gift supplies

Use a sharp to to make a tiny hole on the gray dot printed on the lower front of card. Fold the card on the dotted lines. Punch two holes at the top of the card. Since I was using thin twine, I used a smaller hole punch.

Remove the fan blade from the body of the fan.  Place the metal piece through the card.

Use twine or ribbon to tie the card together.

    I am a 4th grade teacher and I received these as a gift from my mom. I love them. It is nice to get something personal and practical as a gift. I will be making more for all the books in my classroom library.

    We do get tired of getting apples or things with apples on them. Also, I have so many ornaments I could fill several trees. We would LOVE a gift certificate to a book store and the bookplates would be adorable and original!
