Mani Thanks Teacher Appreciation Gift | Free Printable

If you’re reading this in May, teacher appreciation week is either quickly approaching or maybe already in full swing! If you want a quick and easy way to make sure your child’s teacher feels appreciated and pampered, all you need is this free “mani thanks” printable gift tag and a bottle of nail polish or two!

If you’re like me, you love a great printable – they come in so handy when it comes to gifts. This “Mani Thanks” printable makes it so easy to create a cute and personal gift for your child’s teacher.

Choose polishes in cute spring/summer shades and if you want, dress it up more by adding a little nail file or lotion as well. The free mani thanks pdf includes a few different color options so you can coordinate the polish or you can mix and match.


Here’s list of the supplies that I used to make our teacher gift:

L.A. Colors Color Craze polishes
4-in-1 Pedicure Paddle
Via Natural Ultra Care Coconut Oil
7 Sided Professional Nail File and Buffer
Clear Cellophane Loot Bags with Twist Ties

The links above are Amazon links, but I actually found the pastel L.A. Colors Color Craze nail polishes at Walmart and everything else at the Dollar Tree! So if you have a Dollar Tree near you, be sure to check there. Dollar Tree’s online site has some of the same items, but you have to buy in bulk on the website – like a case of 21 nail polishes, for example!

I printed the gift tag on white cardstock and tied it with the aqua and gold chevron ribbon. If you want to make it look a little bit fancier, you can even put the whole thing in a little white wire basket with some crinkle-cut white decorative paper shreds like I did. I got both of those items at the Dollar Tree too.
