Wondering what to get your child’s teacher this holiday season?
After teaching for so long, I’ve gotten it all… and I’m always incredibly grateful for the gifts I have received. But, there are some gifts that were so fun and practical, I’m still using them YEARS later.
I thought I’d share with you, my top 3 favorite teacher gifts ideas.
Obviously, each teacher is different and these are just my suggestions, what I loved receiving. But if you find any of it helpful during this crazy time of the year, then that makes me happy :)
- Gift Card: You can almost never go wrong with a gift card. My suggestion? Starbucks! Teachers are up early and running around with little kiddos all day long...they need their caffeine! You can place the gift card on one of these printables or you can place them in one of these cute Christmasy Starbucks tumblers. Which leads me to number 2….
- Personalized Tumbler: Teachers often receive mugs, but my favorite was always the personalized tumbler! I drink a ton of water all day long and when I was teaching, it was easy to quickly get a sip from my tumbler. No mess if it falls because it has a top, and no time wasted unscrewing the top to a water bottle. I still use the tumblers I received so many years ago. Our friend over at Ki Designs personalizes them for you… check them out.
- Personalized Tote Bag: I don’t think there was ever a morning I walked into school with less than two bags! Teachers are always hauling a ton of stuff around… library books to read aloud to the class, their lunch, work they took home to finish up, the bag of gym clothes to change into after work... it’s crazy! So I LOVED every personalized bag I ever received (again, I still have all of them).
Happy holiday shopping!
