These personalized gift ideas will be treasured for years to come.

Teacher Appreciation Day for 2020 is on May 5th, which is coming right up! Oftentimes this “holiday” takes us all by surprise, and we find ourselves scrambling at the last minute to pull teacher gift ideas out of our hats. But not this year. This year we are thinking ahead and creating something thoughtful and personalized for the teachers we love (and even the ones we don’t). Let’s face it. All teachers deserve our appreciation for the mere fact that they spend 8 hours a day with our kids. Here are our best teacher gift ideas, in honor of Teacher Appreciation Day.

Custom Post-it® Notes make affordable and thoughtful gifts that everyone can use. We have a variety of teacher designs in a 4×6 size and over 50 design choices. These Post-it Notes can be personalized with the teacher’s name and your choice of colors to create a thoughtful gift he or she will use every day. Here are some of our fave designs!


Personalized Stationery is quite handy for teachers to have around, especially since they are always looking for ways to model their writing skills for kids in the classroom. Add your teacher’s name and he or she will wonder where you came up with such a lovely idea!

Best of all, these teacher gift ideas take only minutes to order and can all be in your hands before May 5 if you order them now! You’re welcome.

Your photos are printed on all four sides of this Post-it Note Photo Cube — this is a big favorite with the Pear Tree team. Why? Because it’s truly a gift anyone can use.

Each holiday season, my family and I always get excited about having all of our friends and family over for celebrations of togetherness and giving thanks.  There is always plenty of cleaning and organizing to be done to get the house ready before family arrives. However, this year I also wanted to update some of our family photo’s hanging on the wall.

Personalized Ornaments

We’re excited to introduce our new, easy-to-fold canvas that you can personalize with a photo and hang on your wall in minutes! The canvas arrives flat, and you fold it yourself. In just a minute or two it’s ready to hang. Watch this video to see just how easy it is!

Unlike traditional canvas that is stretched around wood frames, our folding canvas is much more affordable, and you don’t have to commit to keeping it on your wall forever. When you want to change out your artwork for something new, our canvas unfolds and stores flat for easy archiving.

Mothers Day gift ideas
The best Mother’s Day gifts are ones that are thoughtful and come from the heart. It doesn’t have to be expensive, it just needs to be meaningful to Mom. One of our favorite Mother’s Day gift ideas is creating a way to put her child’s artwork on display! We know that Mom (and Grandmom) cherish their children’s artwork, so take a few of those masterpiece designs from an overflowing drawer or tub and give them as a way for her to display on the walls or her desk or mantel.

As shown in these Three Hand Sketched Frames Wall Decals and True Colors Wall Decals designs, you simply upload the kids’ artwork as an image and pick the color of the frames or the circles to match the rest of the room. They are a great addition to a play room, kid’s bedroom, bathroom or hallway!
