Countdown to Teacher AppreciationAre you a procrastinator? Yeah, I know the feeling.

But this week, we can make you look really, really good with literally hundreds of easy, creative teacher appreciation ideas all ready for you.

The best place to start is with our Teacher Appreciation File Exchange, which has tons of easy, inexpensive ways to say thanks. We've recently added lots of printable gift tags, which are one of the simplest (and sweetest) ways to go if you're pressed for time. My all-time favorite printable is The Candy Poem for teachers. (You deserve "100 Grand" even though the kids can be "Air Heads" and "Nerds.")

It's also easier than you think to pull together a nice lunch on a budget. Our Teacher Appreciation Luncheon Themes and Ideas is a great source of inspiration there. Remember that it truly is the thought that counts. And from one procrastinator to another -- you're welcome!
