Last Minute + FREE Gift Ideas for Teachers, Grads & Dads

We’re pushing the outer limit for end-of-the-year teacher appreciation, Father’s Day and graduation gift ideas, but hey – better late than never, right? Especially when the gifts are free (you will pay shipping & handling) from Vistaprint.

Here are my current favorite freebie options:

FREE customized t-shirt – I like this for dad, but it could also make a cute graduation gift. There are 36 design options to choose from – the above is just a little mockup I quickly made the other day. Shipping & Handling will run you $4.50 when you choose the least expensive option – and lately I’ve been finding that my Vistaprint orders arrive within 7-10 days – much faster than promised!

Photo FREEBIES – Customized Magnet, Flip Book, Mug, Mouse Pad or Wall Calendar. I’m a total sucker for photo gifts – especially ones that aren’t just sentimental, but also practical. The wall calendars would be great for teacher gifts – you can even select to have it start in August, perfect for the 2011-2012 school year! Shipping & handling varies, based on weight, but it doesn’t increase by much as you add more (free) items to your cart.

140 FREE Address Labels – For a graduate who is moving, these would make a nice practical gift. But I also love making these up as “This belongs to…” labels.  I think these would be especially cute for teacher’s gifts. Shipping is just $3.25 for 14 days – or $3.50 for priority. (I actually upgraded, just to make sure I got it in time.)

As always, with Vistaprint, be careful to NOT select the “bonus offers” during checkout – even the free ones can end up costing you, so my advice is just to avoid them all.
