There is this crazy notion out there that it’s difficult to shop for teachers. Friends, parents, and relatives often seem clueless when it comes to gift buying. With this in mind, we’ve pulled together a short list of gift ideas that are sure to win over any teacher’s heart. Check them out below and tell us in the comments what YOUR favorite holiday gift is!
1. Amazon Gift Card!
You absolutely CANNOT go wrong with a gift card! Teacher’s buy so many supplies, books, and gadgets for their classroom all year long! Receiving a gift card only means they can get more goodies for their students! A small percentage of teachers might actually spend some of it on themselves (gasp!) and they absolutely should!!! Amazon makes it easy to purchase a gift card in various amounts here or if you need something last minute, print out your own Amazon gift card here. There’s also the option of sending an Amazon eGIFT Card through email. Grab the free printable here: Paper Trail Design or click the picture.
Teacher’s LOVE markers and pens (I mean, have you ever scrolled through the feed of a teacher’s Instagram?!) They’re also the perfect size for a stocking stuffer. You’re bound to bring a smile to any teacher’s face with Mr. Sketch Scented Markers, Sharpie Color Burst Permanent Markers, Paper Mate Flair Pens, or our personal favorite Paper Mate InkJoy Retractable Pens.
3. Caffeine (teacher fuel)
Ok, so not ALL teachers drink coffee. But we love this gift caddy idea from @MrsHenryInFirst and you could easily fill it with tea, diet coke, or whatever your teacher giftee might love to drink. Bonus: the caddy can serve as a classroom organizer. The caddy pictured above was found at Target. Grab the cute labels for free here.
This would make a fun gift for your teacher bestie. You could also pair it with these pretty, FunLavie Colored Pencils.
6. Hand Lettering Set
If you’ve browsed any teacher hashtags on Instagram lately, you’ve most likely stumbled upon beautiful, hand lettered quotes and anchor charts galore. Help the teachers in your life learn how to letter like the pros with this Hand Lettering Book from @chalkfulloflove and grab some Brush Tip Markers while you’re at it!
7. Spa in a Jar
We love this “Spa in a Jar” idea from Growing Up Gabel. Grab a mason jar, some paper shreds, a pretty loofah, and throw in some spa goodies. We found a universal spa gift card on Amazon and some bath bombs that would make for a fabulous, relaxing gift!
8. FAB Lunch Time Accessories
Let’s be honest. Most teachers scarf their lunch down over a copy machine or on the way back from an IEP meeting. But wouldn’t it be so much more fun scarfing in style?! Check out these insulated, stainless steel lowball Yeti tumblers perfect for keeping your food at just the right temperature and durable if dropped while carrying all your last minute copies. We also love these stainless steel, sweat proof Arctic Tumblers that come with a straw so you can use them for hot coffee or iced beverages! If you are looking for other gift ideas for lunchtime, Amazon sells this beautiful gray, insulated lunch tote with pastel food storage boxes. If your intended recipient loves bright colors, we found these rainbow colored bento boxes that are great for meal prepping lunches for the week.
