Valentine’s Day is a fun holiday for kids in the Preschool and Elementary years. Who doesn’t love getting little cards and candy?

Our teacher valentine gifts are a sweet and inexpensive way to remember some awesome teachers and let them know how much they mean to us.

I have made printable valentines for my kids to bring to school several times over the years. This year, I added these Wordle Valentine Cards to the mix and they are a hit. They are free to print so go get em!

Teachers do so much for our kiddos, I want to be a little bit thoughtful.

Years ago, I designed a little fingerprint flower card in a couple different styles, which you can print below.

When you print the card, the petals are missing for the flower. Then the child can add fingerprints or draw the petals.

I love how our easy teacher valentine cards are simple and personal.

This way your child can add his or her special touch to the card. We have used used pink ink and fingerprints to make the flower and other times created a drawing.

Add a Valentine’s mason jar vase and some real flowers for a really cute gift!

If you want to add a small gift, attach a little pack of seeds or a small plant to go along with it. I think it would be appreciated either way.

Or you know, Valentine’s Day cupcakes or a couple hot cocoa bombs work too.

And if you are a teacher looking for valentines from teachers to students, I have you covered. This fun word search has been super popular! Just add a pencil.

Teacher Valentine Gifts and Cards

I made our teacher valentine card as a printable to share, so feel free to download it for your own personal use! I intentionally left off the word teacher so these really could be used for anyone.

The teacher valentines print two to a page and I suggest using white card stock for the best results. (click the image or the link to print).

If you don’t have time to add the fingerprint flower petals, I also created a foldable card without that added step. Just click the image and print on cardstock!
