If one thing is clear during the Covid pandemic, we need our teachers. Parents are tired, kids are tired and yes, even teachers of tired of the current situation. Everyone is doing the best that they can and teaching are pulled in different directions during the school year. Part Covid inspector, part hygiene chief, part online educator and part regular teacher! The demands on teachers are just like the demands on parents…very large! But, through all of the thick and thin, teachers continue to show up, smile and teach our kids their ABCs, long division and lessons of the heart too. While we can all use a simple “thank you” from time to time, teachers need them as well. So, as we round the bend in the pandemic, we also rounded up a dozen of the best teacher gift ideas during Covid.
How to Choose the Best Teacher Gift Ideas

From personalized teacher gifts like a custom tote bag or gift with a personal touch based on what the teacher has shared with your family to uncommon gifts that will stand out from the standard flowers or other common run-of-the-mill gift from the supermarket shelf.
