Wondering what to get your child’s classroom 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 gift ideas.
Gift Card: You can almost never go wrong with a gift card. Amazon, Target, Barnes & Noble, local restaurants… but my suggestion? Starbucks! Teachers are up early running around with little kids all day...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 throughout the day 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.
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... I'm still using the tote bags I received as gifts so many years ago!
