Looking for an elementary or nursery school teacher gift? Framed Teacher Gift is the perfect gift for a teacher to young students.
Last week my daughter graduated. It was a small intimate ceremony, celebrating the end of the year. And for my daughter, the end of preschool.
This was my daughter’s first year at school and she loved it. Every day, she’d run out of the classroom exclaiming, “I had so much fun today!” Seeing her smiling face and hearing the excitement in her voice is priceless. While I knew that we would be saying goodbye to her school, I wanted to leave her teachers with an end of year thank you gift.
I decided to create a framed print. Her teachers could place it anywhere around their home and it would be a little reminder of how much their hard work is appreciated. The first step was finding the right quote. Within no time, I found one by anonymous, “It takes a big heart to shape a little mind.” I instantly loved it. It was the perfect quote for my daughter’s teachers. They have such big hearts and they truly seem to love each and every one of the kids in her class.
I played around with some fonts in photoshop before landing on a combination that felt just right. I used Kingthings Wrote, Pacifico and Open Sans. All of these fonts are free. You can download Kingthings Wrote here, Pacifico here, and Open Sans here. Next, I designed an abstract apple and I placed the wording underneath, so it would look like the words are floating inside a bright red apple.
Finally, I bought a frame for each teacher. You may notice from the pictures above that there are two different frames. I thought it would be fun to get a couple different frames. Each one adds something special. The silver one adds a feminine touch, while the black one adds a modern flare.
