Best Teacher Gift Ideas

Teachers make a huge difference in our kids’ lives. They do so much more for them besides teaching arithmetic and spelling. They help mold their character and instill a deep love of learning that can last a lifetime. They’re there, day in and day out, making sure each child is looked after and cared for.

Whether it’s Teacher’s Appreciation Week, a holiday, or at the end of the year, your child’s teacher deserves a huge thank you. One amazing way to show your appreciation is with a thoughtful and caring gift. Consider a delightful fruit arrangement featuring our signature pineapple daisies and other fruit favorites topped with an apple-shaped pineapple slice for that extra-special touch. It includes decadent chocolate dipped apple wedges for a sweet treat your teacher will love, and it comes carefully arranged in a keepsake container she can use again and again.

Say thanks with a box of delectable strawberries hand-dipped in real, gourmet semisweet chocolate in a custom thank you box. Make an even bigger statement with a gift bundle including a box of chocolate dipped strawberries and a box of Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory confections, complete with a Thank You balloon.

Looking for something for your favorite teacher for the holidays? You can’t go wrong with a box of scrumptious desserts, hand-selected by you to include your teacher’s favorite flavor combinations, or choose from our extensive collection of festive holiday treats to find the perfect gift to make your teacher’s holiday season bright and merry.

“As a teacher, I can say that the best gift I could receive would be a lovely planner, especially if it’s custom made so it has categories inside like the list of students and lesson planning ideas sheet. Teachers are always busy with schedules, students and their achievements, list-making, keeping records, etc. I believe any teacher would love a gift like this.”

“Teachers really take their downtime seriously, but they also deserve fun supplies to get through the year. As a kind of throwback to the late ’90s, a giant set of gel pens can be a delightful surprise loaded with nostalgia but is also perfect for grading papers with a little more fun.”

“This year you can express your gratitude for teachers by gifting yours with a Netflix gift card, giving them free access to great shows and movies they’ll love. It’ll be an excellent way for them to gain some relaxation after a hard day’s work.

Your teacher will thank you for a comfortable weighted blanket to help them sleep at night. The weight it provides can help some people go to sleep faster, so it’s a great gift to help your teacher sleep after a long week of grading papers or planning their next lesson. It also might help them relieve some stress with its warmth and coziness.

Pumpkin butter scented candles can be a perfect gift for your teacher this year. Being close to the holidays, the aromatic scent of pumpkin butter can get your teacher in the spirit for the holiday season and help them relax with it lit during a movie at home.”

“Everyone who has spent time with teachers knows how much they may value their morning or afternoon coffee or tea. An excellent and practical gift for your favorite teacher would be a stainless steel travel mug or thermos. Not only will this help limit environmental waste by limiting the number of disposable cups your teacher will use, but it will also provide your teacher with a high-quality and excellent mug to travel with. For an added touch, you could have your teacher’s name or initials laser engraved on the mug!”

Holly Noel learned to make jam from her Grandma and began Holly’s Homemade in 2014, selling jam and jelly locally. With the 2020 pandemic, Holly moved the business entirely online. With the help of her husband Mark Breyman and loyal, satisfied customers, the online business was quadrupled this year.

“Holly’s Homemade jams, jellies and fruit butters make great teacher gifts. During our past six years in business, we have had many customers buy our 8-ounce jars as gifts for their children’s teachers during our local events – with great results. This year, with most shopping online, customers have three options for these purchases: send a large selection of jars to their own home; divide and deliver them personally, order for each teacher and have them delivered to the teacher’s work or home, or easiest of all, order a digital gift card. Holly’s Homemade products are also perfect to attach to home-baked goods for that extra special personal touch. Everyone enjoys the great homemade taste and varied selection of these products, with the assurance that they are manufactured in a Texas licensed commercial kitchen.”

“With everything related to teaching being no laughing matter these days, perhaps one of the best gifts you can give a stressed-out teacher is something that will help them lighten up. That gift is a copy of Teacher Laughs: Quips, Quotes and Anecdotes about the Classroom. It’s available either in audio or hardcover.”


Jennifer WillyJennifer Willy

Jennifer Willy is an Editor for Etia.Com.

“Here are some of the most amazing teacher gifts ideas that are available in the market.

The first recommendation would be a Pencil Dispenser Holder. Simply twist either knob on the sides of the dispenser to release one pencil into the tray. It holds up to 50 pencils at a time. To add more, simply lift the hinged lid and insert additional standard number 2 pencils.

The After School Coffee Mug and Wine Glass Set for Teachers is a perfect appreciation gift set for your favorite teacher. The tumblers are made of unbreakable 304 18/8 food-grade stainless steel, and the lid with a drinking strewing hole is made of ABS and silica gel.

Lined Notepads for Teacher Appreciation are exclusively designed to appreciate the educator in your life. The notebook is available in multiple designs and colors, and you can personalize it with quotes and messages.”

Yaniv Masjedi is the CMO at Nextiva.

“The best gift that a teacher can receive is to see how they influenced past students for the better.

Reach out to some of their most memorable students, preferably a mixture of the current and former. Conduct a video interview and allow them to share the impact of their teacher on their lives. Compile the videos and finish it with a soundtrack to make it more engaging.

Being a teacher is a noble profession, and their impact on their students’ lives is massive. I believe teachers would appreciate knowing the winning results of their guidance to their former students.”

“A homemade thank you card or drawing is a wonderful teacher gift, or you could email them a letter from your child.

If your kid is in fourth grade or older, this is a very appropriate writing task. Encourage them to narrate what they appreciate most about their teacher. Don’t let them settle for the generic – we wouldn’t in the classroom!”


Yusuf PrensYusuf Prens

“Most teachers can’t live without their planners, as keeping organized is key to keeping their sanity!

A thoughtful gift would be a stylish handmade leather planner or notebook portfolio that can hold all their daily essentials, like their daily planner, pens, notebooks, and more. Personalize it with eye-popping color and an engraved monogram of their initials, and they’ll have a keepsake for many years to come.”

Laurie Richards is an insightful communication problem solver who works with professionals to improve communication. She helps clients strategically plan outcome-based presentations, build stronger teams, and improve every day.

“Imagine, as a teacher, you sit down to your desk one day and there is a nice box, perhaps an engraved crystal box, or a wood box made by one of the students’ woodworking parents.

When you open the box, you find small notes written by each of the students on different colored strips of paper.

Ask each of the kids to choose their color. And ask them to write a favorite thing about their teacher – maybe a memory. Ask them to write one thing per slip of paper. Each student can write as many slips of paper as they’d like.

Now put those colorful slips of paper in a pretty box and let the teacher drink in the appreciation we sometimes don’t take time to share.

As a second step, you might ask the students to add to the box at the end of the year or on Teacher Appreciation Day, the teachers’ birthday, or all of the above!”


Trond NylandTrond Nyland

Trond Nyland is the Founder and CEO at Mattress Review.

“While gift cards and chocolates are nice, those types of gifts don’t compare to something heartfelt. Teachers are nurturing and caring by nature, so hearing what the teacher’s work has meant to a student is the ultimate gift.

Craft and design an explosion box for your teacher. There are many tutorials on YouTube explaining how to make an explosion box. Decorate the inside and include little notes to the teacher that proclaim your appreciation.

Once the teacher removes the top, the box expands to reveal the contents, which can include thoughtful notes, drawings, and small gifts. Consider adding in handwritten notes, some chocolates, and some nourishing lip moisturizer.

Teachers will be delighted with such a thoughtful and beautiful gift. Not only that, but they’ll always remember it.”

Our new classroom tapestries spruce up the classroom and inspire students all year long.

Unique, reversible, and super educational, there are so many learning opportunities within each blanket, it’s the perfect addition to each classroom.”

  • Hero Face Mask Pins are $8.99 each.

  • We have raised just under $3,000 so far.
  • They can be purchased on Etsy and Square Site.”

“Twinkl produces resources to provide anyone who needs it with the ability to put together great lessons with ease, whether they’re teachers or just parents adapting to home-schooling or after-school club leaders. But even with nearly 700,000 resources, they have more than just PowerPoints and worksheets, with augmented reality apps, original games, and even original eBooks (that you can get beautiful physical copies of with Twinkl Ultimate).

We think Twinkl’s great for teachers because it gives them back the one thing there’s not enough of: time. It means that they can just do a quick search and come up with some great, teacher-made activities to support their teaching instead of using valuable time making their own. Giving teachers back their valuable free time, that’s the greatest gift of all.”

@MajestyCoffee

Colin Palfrey is the CMO at Majesty Coffee.

“As a teacher, I imagine the day gets busy fast, and it’s not uncommon to let a cup of coffee or tea go cold while teaching.

That’s why a great, unique gift for teachers is an electric mug warmer that they can put on their desk. All the teacher needs to do is plug the device in, and it will keep their coffee or tea warm as long as they need it. It’s perfect for the winter months.

I like this one from BESTINKITS, which is currently selling on Amazon for $28.99.”

@House_Method

David Cusick is the Executive Editor of House Method.

“Since teachers enjoy having coffee or tea during and between classes, they need something they can use while they’re on-the-move. Home, classrooms, teacher’s room — teachers are more mobile than we often think!

While we all have plenty of travel mugs, a travel kettle can be a lifesaver for caffeine fiends with essays to grade. This model made by Loutytuo is made with collapsible silicone to fit in any backpack, and you can pick the cover.

One important tip for any teachers’ gift: Make sure you include a handwritten note. The gift you give may end up gone someday, but the sentiments you express will stay with them forever.”

“Books are the best gifts you could give to teachers. Everyone knows that teachers love to read books. However, if you’re going to give a book as a gift to a teacher, make sure to go beyond the typical books we already read. Instead, try to give books that would help us be enlightened with our passion. Some of them are:

  • Mathilda, by Roald Dahl. This book tells the story of an extraordinarily intelligent girl, Mathilda, who befriended her teacher, Miss Honey. Being taken for granted by her family, Mathilda found the comfort she was looking for from Miss Honey. The two would go on various adventures to discover the true meaning of friendship, happiness, and family.
  • Tuesdays with Morrie, by Mitch Albom. It was a story narrated by the author himself, Mitch Albom. In this book, Albom would recount the values and lessons he learned from his former teacher, Morrie Schwartz. The two would spend their days rekindling their friendship and learning the lesson of Morrie’s ‘final class.’
  • All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, by Robert Fulghum. This book is a collection of the author’s thoughts about life. In each of its lessons, you would learn that learning about life doesn’t end at the four corners of the classroom.”

“The perfect teacher gifts are candles. You can tailor what size, type, and scent you give to make it the perfect holiday gift they will actually use. Many shops offer gift sets, such as ours, to make holiday gift-giving a breeze. Pick a neutral scent that will be sure to please, and you have the perfect gift that your teacher will be thankful for.”

“One of the best teacher gift ideas is a gift card for Teachers Pay Teachers, or TpT. If you haven’t heard of TpT, I’m certain the teachers in your life have!

TpT is the world’s largest online marketplace for original educational resources. Examples of resources are algebra curriculum, biology lessons, writing centers, and teacher notebooks. The three million resources that are available on TpT were created by teachers and other educators who earn the majority of each sale. Over five million educators found a resource they wanted to download from TpT in the past year. Most items are priced under $10. Gift cards can be purchased here.”


Jeanine DuvalJeanine Duval

Jeanine Duval is the co-founder at Edelwyn.

“Give your teacher a gift that he’ll be able to keep and remember you by.

You’ll definitely win the show when you’re giving the teacher an item that’s an addition to their desk. I’d suggest the Chinese Money Plant since it’s easy to keep, doesn’t grow too tall, and looks fun! After a few months, it will even give you a few cuttings for pupils to take home. And the best thing is that the pancake plant is used in Feng Shui as good luck! And maybe it will bring you good luck regarding your grades, too.

One item that your teacher can never go without is chalk or whiteboard markers.

What could possibly be a more thoughtful gift? Depending on whether the teacher still likes to use the old-school blackboards, I’d assume whiteboard markers are your best bet. HuntfortheBest.com has a list of the best markers, and I would go for the colorful shuttle art dry erase markers.

Undoubtedly, the best way to treat your teacher is by gifting them a remarkable book.

A teacher who’s not into books is a rare case. You can especially be thoughtful if you know (or find out) who your teacher’s favorite author is! You’ll get brownie points for sure.”


David McHughDavid McHugh

@mymixify20

David McHugh is the CEO and founder of My Mixify, an online blog about exercising and sport. Every teacher deserves recognition for doing great work, and the occasional gift is a perfect way to show him or her that you care.

“One present that I would go for is gifting an amazing mug. Of course, it can be a bit cliche, but that’s why they’re so great. Find one that has inspiring quotes from your teachers’ favorite movie or show. Or if you want to go all the way (which I would recommend) – one that says, ‘This is what an awesome teacher looks like.’

Another way to surprise your teacher is by sending him or her a fruit basket with a great bottle of red. Frankly, you would make anyone happy with these gifts. An even better way to spoil your teacher is by offering a basket that happens to have chocolate-covered fruit. Maybe they’ll even share some with you.

If you want to be clever, give your teacher a newspaper or magazine subscription. You can count on it that he or she loves to read in the afternoons to unwind after busy school days.”


Bobby ChernevBobby Chernev

After completing his doctoral studies, Borislav Chernev lectured in modern European history at the universities of Newcastle and Exeter. It was around this time that he conceived the idea of Mark in Style as a bridge between the best employers and candidates in the UK education sector. He was lucky enough to come across some amazing people who helped him make this dream a reality. On the rare occasions when he is not obsessing over the latest Department for Education guidelines, you can find him enjoying a pint of cask ale down at the local pub.

“Although not everyone seems to give them the credit they deserve, teachers are some of the most important figures, not only when growing up, but throughout our entire life. Anyone who has had a good teacher knows the great impact they have on our personal development, which is worth admiring and repaying with a little something. Finding a gift to show appreciation for a teacher might be a difficult task when you need to think out of the box (that means no simple notes, little mugs, or apples); however, it’s not impossible to do so. If you want a gift your teacher can really appreciate, consider the following suggestions.

Teachers are characterized by being knowledgeable people, so make sure their gifts are either something that contributes to their knowledge or something really useful. That being said, you can gift your teacher a book, but not just any book. If they recently spoke in class about a specific author they enjoy, you can look for that author’s most recent book and surprise him/her with it. You can even take it to another level by finding an autographed version.

Another nice detail would be to gift your teacher something interesting to add to their collection if they happen to have one. Is she a big fan of Harry Potter, for example? Look for unique gifts related to it. You can also go low-budget but more personal with a handmade craft that touches their heart.”

“To perform their best, teachers need to be well-rested, focused, and alert. As such, our Productivity Bundle is an excellent gift idea for teachers.

A set of three different, completely natural supplements with herbal ingredients, the Productivity Bundle aids in stress relief, deeper sleep, energy during the day, and preventing fatigue.”


Matt SatellMatt Satell

Matt Satell is the Marketing Manager at Little Bundle.

“At the holidays last year, one class parent decided to take up an optional collection for one teacher gift from the entire class.

The suggested contribution was $10 per kid – not enough to really break the bank but plenty to get something nice when added up for 25 kids! The class mom gave a gift basket that contained a gift certificate for a massage and manicure/pedicure, plus a gift card to a popular local restaurant. With the leftover funds, the parent bought a director’s chair personalized with the teacher’s name. She was really surprised and thrilled. It was affordable for everyone, and best of all, it was meaningful.”
