Give The Best Back To School Teacher Gifts – 3 Free Printable Gift Card Holders


My kids are headed back to school and that means new teachers! I don’t know about you, but I’m all for earning brownie points with the people that will be spending 6.5 hours a day with my children.{wink}

Hi there! Kim from The Celebration Shoppe here, with three fun free printable gift card holders perfect for those meet the teacher nights and teacher appreciation days! All kidding aside, I have several friends that are teachers and I know firsthand that they spend a ton of money out of their own pockets to make sure they have all the fun and creative activities that our kids enjoy each day. I say, let’s help them out if we can!

With this in mind, I created three free printable gift card holders. What will you choose?

  • Classic – want something simple yet lovely, this one is for you.
  • Whimsy – have a young student with a teacher that will appreciate a great pun, this one is for you.
  • Cheeky – feel like poking fun at Pinterest and the fact that teachers likely get an overabundance of coffee cups and pencil holders, this one is for you.


Okay, let’s help our teachers get crafty! You’ll need:

  • Cardstock (I use 8.5×11 photo paper sheets, they hold color best when printing on home printers)
  • PDF design (select from above choices)
  • Paper trimmer or good scissors
  • Glue dots (Zots are available in the paper crafting section)
  • Optional: Mini clipboard, washi tape




Although the mini clipboard and washi tape aren’t actually necessary, they sure are cute! And JOANN has so many options. Plus, they have a variety of mini clothespins in some darling colors too if you’d rather clip the gift card on the holder.


As always, I hope you’re inspired to craft, bake, create and celebrate with JOANN!
