Teacher Gift Ideas

As a teacher for multiple years, I was on the receiving end of many lovely and wonderful gifts for various occasions and as a momma now who is experiencing giving gifts to teachers for the first time, I wanted to make sure that I give gifts to my kids’ teachers that they will love and enjoy for years to come.

Please let me preface this post with a disclaimer so I don’t have people throwing rocks in my general direction: all teachers {or at least the good ones} will appreciate *any and all* gifts sent their direction. I can tell you from personal experience that I certainly did not go into the profession to expect gifts from my students and their families and every single present that was sent my direction was received with lots of love and appreciation. I promise.

But here’s the thing: one person can have only so many coffee mugs and apple-related decor items. {Don’t throw rocks now please!} I know that parents and kids think that those are an awesome gift idea to give your favorite teacher {and they are}, but why not change things up a bit? Some of my most favorite gifts were those that were more personal to me, rather than the general “teacher-y” gifts. Dig deep and think about what you know about your child’s teacher or have your kidlet so some undercover work.
