Target Teacher Gift with Free Printable Gift Card Holder

There are lots of groups of people who deserve all of our thanks and appreciation after the past few years, and at the tippy top of that list is teachers. Teaching was a tough, demanding job anyway. And then the pandemic happened and made it even harder!

I am so grateful for the rockstar teachers my boys have had over the past few years, and I wanted to make sure we let them know how much we appreciate them. This simple Target teacher gift seemed like the perfect way to do just that!

Why a “Right on Target” Teacher Gift?

As of the date of this writing, my boys are in 5th and 8th grades, so I have given a lot of teacher gifts over the years! But of all the teacher gifts I’ve shared, there is one type that seems to really hit home the most.

Any time the gift incorporates my kiddo telling the teacher what they’ve enjoyed about being in their class, it seems to be an instant hit. So I decided to combine that concept with a gift nearly every teacher could use– a Target gift card– to create this oh-so-simple printable.

Target Teacher Gift Printables with Holiday Gift Cards

The printable states, “5 Reasons Why [insert teacher’s name] Is Right on Target:” and then gives five lines for the student to write some encouraging words about their teacher.

There is then space to attach a Target gift card at the bottom (I like to use glue dots to secure it.) and a place for the student to sign their name on the card.

Teacher Gift Printable Details

I printed these printables on white card stock so they would be a little sturdier than plain copy paper. I then used a paper cutter to cut them out to ensure that my lines were nice and straight.

The printable measures 5″ x 7″, so it fits perfectly into a standard greeting card envelope.

And while I initially designed this printable as a teacher gift, it doesn’t actually say “teacher” anywhere, so you could give it to anyone who could use a little pick-me-up! This includes:

  • parents
  • children
  • new moms and dads
  • new homeowners
  • friends
  • spouse/partner
  • service providers like mail people, hair stylists, or bus drivers
  • someone who could use a fun surprise!

We originally gave this gift at Christmas time, but it could be used all year long for things like…

  • teacher appreciation week
  • beginning or end of the school year
  • birthday celebration
  • special milestone or anniversary
  • just because!
