Teacher Gift Ideas

The first week of May is upon us which means it is time to start looking for teacher appreciation gifts.  We polled some of our favorite teachers to find gift ideas that they love!  Keep reading for our top ten gifts for teachers.  

1.  Flowers

Nothing says "thank you for all you do" better than a beautiful flower bouquet.  To make this idea even better, gift them front porch flowers to remember their favorite student all summer long.  Need an idea for holding your flower bouquet?  Our nest boxes are both cute and inspirational!

2. Water Bottle

With a classroom of students, there isn't an opportunity to grab something to drink.  Gift them an insulated water bottle to keep at their desk.  Want extra credit?  Find a two in one cup that can hold their coffee in the morning and water in the afternoon!

3. Summer Gifts

Summertime is sweet...especially for teachers who use this time to refresh, recharge, and plan for the upcoming year.  Give them gifts they may use on a family vacation, a cute bag or towel to take to the pool, or adorable summer entertaining pieces.  Our popular Summer Vibes tote is the perfect summer accessory.

4.  Stationery

Teachers go through a lot of paper goods!  Gift them a personalized notepad or beautiful stationery to make them smile every time they write a note.

5.  Coffee

A good cup of coffee makes the early morning hours a little bit better!  Gift them a coffee mug with a gift card to their favorite coffee shop or a coffee-themed gift box.  Our My Cup Runneth Over Coffee Mug is perfect for a little inspiration and a lot of coffee.
