Teachers deserve something wonderful, don’t they? Today I am highlighting the many thoughtful teacher gifts in DoSayGive’s Gift Guide. Plus some great weekend sales.
As I say in all my teacher gift posts, a gift card is always a welcome gift. Generic gift cards to Target, Visa gift cards, etc. are great if you don’t know them well. Make sure you know the teachers’ likes/dislikes if you are doing a more personal gift card for a manicure or juice bar (and make sure it’s close to their home!). Did you know you can buy Redbox gift credits? Print out and pair with some candy or popcorn for a cute gift. (This is particularly great for men’s teacher gifts!)
If you want to give a potted holiday plant, consider giving it sooner instead of waiting until the last day of school before Christmas so they can enjoy it in their classroom. Teachers often receive a lot of potted poinsettias and amaryllis plants and Trader Joe’s orchids on the last day of school before Christmas:).
When giving something more personal, be sure to really know your teacher. Or check the “favorite things” sheet the room moms sent out in the beginning of the year. As always, a note of gratitude is much appreciated.
I know sometimes, though, we just want to give a little gift. Before I get to the gift ideas, I want to tell you about our gift guide sponsor, Joy Creative Shop. Well, I’ve told you about this company a lot on the blog because I just love their modern, high-quality stationery. Their hand-lettered notepads for teacher gifts. I use the large size for my daily to-do list. Also a good gift for a friend!
P.S. Their holiday gift tags make nice neighbor/family friend gifts. Deadline for ordering is December 10th.
Now for the gifts! Many of the smaller gifts are great for “specials” teachers like art, music, P.E., etc. Also, don’t forget Trader Joe’s for inexpensive food gifts!
