Teacher Gifts We Love

August 01, 2019

Let's be honest. Teachers have the toughest jobs. I usually realize this around mid-August after my kids have been home for over a month. That's usually when I start thinking about school... partly because everyone's going stir-crazy, and partly because planning ahead helps me feel more organized before fall days are upon us. I shared more about our 10 Back-To-School hacks here. But back to teachers. Part of making the school year great is showing up for teachers and letting them know they're appreciated. I like to give our kids' teachers a small gift or card at the beginning of the year to start things up right. We've rounded up some of our favorite (inexpensive!) gifts for teachers, whether you're starting the school year or are finishing it off and are looking for a way to express your gratitude:

 

1. EOS LIP BALM APPLE

This little EOS lip balm apple from over on Real Housemoms is the cutest thing. They've even made a free printable to make it as easy as ever to create one yourself. Place it on her desk on the first day of school for an apple that she can keep all year!

2. SUCCULENT PLANTER

This adorable succulent planter is for the crafty among us. Find it here on Tilly's Nest, including a step-by-step guide on how to make this adorable planter from a milk carton, rulers, and hot glue! Better yet, succulents require very little water and are low maintenance plants... because she'll be busy caring for your little one all year.

 

3. APPLE POP-UP CARD

We've been fortunate to have some of the same teachers for both of our kids. This apple honeycomb pop-up card of ours is a favorite card for some of those "close to the heart" teachers in our lives.

4. JAR OF STARBURSTS

Throw some Starburst candies in a jar and add a cute tag. Done. This is a great last-minute idea for my fellow busy mamas out there! Find these sweet tags to download over here on Skip To My Lou.

5. TEA-RIFFIC MUG

Give her a mug to keep her water (or iced tea) cool all day with this Tea-Riffic (and sweetly simple) gift idea from Bargain Shopping Mom.

6. SHARPIE MARKERS

You're already shopping for school supplies, so here's another easy (and practical) gift for teachers! We love this sweet idea from Suburban Mom:

7. PLANNERS AND NOTEBOOKS

If you really want to be the teacher's pet this year, gift her with a gorgeous (and beautifully-made) notebook or planner. We're fans of these notebooks and spiral-bound beauties over at Sugar Paper.

8.  SCRATCH-OFF TEACHER NOTES

Give her the sweetest surprise with these Scratch-off Mini Notes. Hide your own handwritten message inside a scratch-off. These come as a box set of six assorted mini cards, and are a great way to make a gift card a little bit more personal.
