Tears Of My Students Mug
Granted, you have to be sure your child’s teacher has a sense of humor before giving them this… but I think it’s hilarious, especially for middle school and high school teachers. A big mug for a teacher who loves a big cup of coffee or tea in the morning is a perfect choice. Check it out here.
Something For The Classroom
A great idea that your child’s teacher will most definitely use is a sign that they can hang up in their classroom. Here is a cool sign that any teacher would be proud to post on their wall.
Coffee Cup Holder For A Desk
How cool is a take-out coffee cup holder that your teacher can clip to their desk to avoid spilling on the desk itself? Perfect for your child’s coffee drinking teacher! Check it out here!
Teachers will always need notepads, so why not get creative and personalize it? It can be as simple as “Mrs. Smith” of “From the desk of an Awesome Teacher”. You can customize it any way you like! Check it out!
Gift Card Bouquet
I think this might be my very favorite ever: finding out (discretely) what your teachers like to do (drink coffee; which restaurants they go to; their favorite book store; etc.), and making a bouquet of gift cards with some other parents. A perfect way to say thank you! Get inspired here:
DIY Plant Pot
If you’re partial to handmade gifts, why not involve the kids and get a plant for your child’s teacher? You can use chalkboard stickers and personalize the pot any which way you choose. Have a look!
Another way to get creative and to customize your gift is to snap up an amazing tote bag with a special message for your child’s teacher. Teachers always have so much to bring to and from class, that a tote bag is guaranteed to be a great gift!
Sure, your child’s teacher may deal with kids all day but we have to remember that they are adults just like us! Think of some of the great gifts you’ve received over the years and consider whether they would be good choices. Some perfect options that come to mind are a really good bottle of olive oil or balsamic vinegar, a gift card for a gourmet grocery store, etc. Thoughtful gifts are always appreciated.
Teaching is such an important job, yet is often thankless. Let your child’s teacher know just how much you see and value all of the hard work they do all year long with these great teacher gift ideas!
