Teacher Valentine Gifts: 20+ FREE Printable Ideas

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.

Years ago, I designed a little card to give to the boys’ teachers on Valentine‘s Day. Teacher valentine gifts don’t need to be extravagant.

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

I love how our easy teacher valentine cards are simple and personal. When you print the card, the petals are missing for the flower. Add a Valentine’s mason jar vase and some real flowers for a really cute gift!

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.

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.

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).

To make your card:

  1. Print onto white card stock and cut out (they print 2 per page)
  2. Depending on child’s age, let them use a red or pink stamp pad to make a thumbprint flower,. Or let them draw the flower petals using crayons or markers
  3. Have child sign their name
  4. Attach seed packets or a flower pot if desired

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!
