Looking for great teacher gifts for Teacher Appreciation Week? I'm listing things that teachers want (hint, it's nothing apple themed)…….
Ok guys, we need to talk. This is on behalf of us……the teachers. Teacher appreciation week is coming. Now to be clear, I do NOT expect presents from my students. AT ALL. But, I am buying them for Lydia's teachers. If you can give teachers a small gift to show how much you appreciate what they do all year, do it. I wanted to share a few suggestions for great teacher gifts.
Please, no school themed or apple themed items. I love school. I love my job. But, I don't collect apple items. And neither do most teachers. Try to think of hobbies or interests that your child's teacher has outside of school…….or even just colors you've seen them wear a lot of.
A few things on MY Teacher Gifts Wishlist this year:
Target Gift Card: Yes please. Everyone loves Target, right? The great thing is, any teacher can use a gift card to buy things for their classroom or they can spoil themselves with some cute new shoes.
Cute Tumbler: Have you noticed teachers are always drinking water? You try talking nonstop for 7 hours to a bunch of eight year olds. Thus, the need to stay hydrated. Every teacher I know keeps a cute tumbler or water bottle handy. So you can be SURE that one will go to good use!
Keurig Coffee Maker: Want to do a group gift from the whole class? A Keurig is a GREAT idea, then you can always gift kcups of hot cocoa, coffee or tea for the holidays throughout the year! And TRUST ME….it will be appreciated.
Bath Set: A simple bath set of bath gel or bubbles is a great way to let your child's teacher know that you want them to pamper themselves! I love this little Thank You set, it's super cute and not too pricey!
Beach Towel and Summer Gift Pack: Summer is on the horizon, and the teachers have earned a vacation. Right? Give them a cute beach towel and tote bag, with a note that says you hope they have a great and relaxing vacation!
Leather Earrings: I love to wear earrings to work, but heavy ones often get in the way during projects or classroom demos. If you follow me on Instagram, then you know that I wear these lightweight leather earrings from Nickel and Suede almost every day to work. They're a killer price and come in a million colors!
Red for Ed Necklace: Most states are in the midst of a red for ed movement. Teachers wear red at least one day a week to show solidarity and to ask for more funding, better salaries, and smaller class size. Gifting your child's teacher with a simple red piece of jewelry is a GREAT way to show your support (I love this classic necklace)!
