gift guide: for TEACHERS

Having both a sister and a mom as teachers and because a couple of people requested this – I wanted to share a small gift guide for the MOST important people in our lives:

Our kid’s TEACHERS!

A lot of times I think our first inkling is to spend time making a sweet treat for those we love and although I am sure teachers appreciate that – I think we can all agree that we have SO many holiday snacks floating around that maybe a different idea would be welcomed.

There are so many things that I could list below but let’s be honest – a lot of teachers use their own resources to help elevate lesson plans or “pretty up” the classrooms so gift cards are a great way to show our appreciation.  Gift cards to Target or Amazon are super versatile and can be used on many different things.

Here are a few different ideas below that would stand proudly on their own or would be a generous add on to a gift card.  Enjoy!


Personalized stationary.  My sister said this was THE BEST teacher’s gif she’s ever received.  Super thoughtful AND useful. Find the one pictures above HERE or another option HERE.

Letter ornament.  Another cute and thoughtful gift and the perfect thing to hang from their tree.  Find it HERE.

Picture Frame.  I love this style frame and it’s simple enough to appeal to most anyone – and can’t beat the $16.95 price.  Find it HERE.

Monogrammed coffee tumbler.  Teachers need caffeine and what better want to drink it?  Find it HERE.

Candle.  A small candle is a great gift and something that anyone loves to receive.  Find this great smelling one from Anthro HERE.

Lip Balm set.  I love Burt’s Bees and LOVE their lip balm.  A great set found HERE.

Other items if the above didn’t quite do it for you.  And any of the “spa” like gifts would be paired great with a Starbucks gift card or a local nail place for a manicure!
