Valentine’s Day Teacher Gift Idea

by Tonya Staab

These Valentine’s Day gifts are the perfect way to show appreciation for your favorite teacher this Valentine’s Day.

The twins’ are having their class Valentine’s Day parties today. We made fun treats to share with the class, and Valentine’s for them to place into their friend’s mailboxes, but I wanted to make something special for each of the teachers too, so we bought each a plant, and made these Valentine’s Day cards to go with them.
