It's Back to School season! I'm sharing 11 teacher gifts that we teachers ACTUALLY WANT!
Thank you to SignUp.com for sponsoring this post.
This is my 14th year as an elementary school teacher…..and trust me, I've gotten a lot of apple theme gifts over the years. One of the questions I get asked the MOST at the start of the school year (and again over the holidays)….what teacher gifts do you ACTUALLY want? So I'm sharing 11 of my favorite teacher gifts at a variety of price points.
11 Teacher Gifts Teachers ACTUALLY WANT
Keurig: Every teacher I know is a coffee addict. Why? We get up early, and teach kids ALL day. Want to be a huge hit? If they don't have one, collect money from a group of parents and buy a Keurig for the classroom or teacher's lounge! If they already have one? Stock the K-cups selection!
To Go Mug: A cute to go mug is something teachers will never have enough of…..and this gold polka dot one? Is just adorable!
Erin Condren Lesson Plan Book: Erin Condren is my go to for organizers and plan books. And every teacher I know? OBSESSED with their lesson plan books. You can customize the cover, and they're stunning. Trust me, you'll be the favorite parent if you gift a teacher one of those!
Frixon Pens: These are the BEST erasable pens to write in that lesson plan book!
Foot Cream: Teaching standing up all day is torture for feet and ankles. A cooling peppermint cream is the best for sore feet, and will be MUCH appreciated!
Cute Tote Bag: We carry SO much stuff to and from home. Papers to grade, projects to prep and more. A cute tote bag is a teacher must have!
Crayola Nail Polish: Sally Hansen's recent partnership with Crayola produced the cutest crayon themed polishes, they're perfect for a little welcome back to school gift!
Charity Bracelet: This adorable bracelet helps provide educational opportunities for underserved children in Kenya. Plus, it's adorable!
Leather Earrings: Looking for a cute accessory? These comfortable leather earrings are great for all day wear, and you can buy them in the school's colors!
Lunch Box: Yup, we bring lunch boxes to school too (cause we obviously don't have time to go out to eat). Buy a cute one for your child's teacher, and stock it with nonperishable snacks or treats!
Personalized Pencils: Pencils have a way of disappearing from classrooms. Buy a set of personalized pencils with the teacher's name on them!
