Top Five Gifts for Teachers This Season – What Are We Wishing For?

As the holiday season approaches, it is the time of year when students and friends start thinking about what gifts to give their favorite teachers. There are many awesome ideas for great and enjoyable gifts for teachers.

There are many gifts that teachers love! A gift is always a kind and generous act. The most important part is the thought behind the gift. Some thought should be put into selecting the best gift for the teacher. Think about their tastes, habits, and hobbies to get a good clue!

Check out this Top Five Gifts for Teachers This Season!

1. Gift Cards – Amazon gift cards, restaurant, grocery store gift cards, etc. If the teacher uses an iPad a lot, consider an iTunes gift card. Audible gift cards are never a disappointment either!

2. School supplies – post it notes, pens, pencils, paper clips, tape. Most teachers have to supply these materials out of their own pockets. This can get very expensive.

3. Themed Gift Basket – Think ‘Movie Night’ with a movie, microwave popcorn, hot cocoa, and some candy. Or perhaps a ‘Spa Day’ basket with various creams, bubble bath, nail polish, etc.

4. Memorable – Something to commemorate your class. A handmade card, a more expensive gift that everyone chips in on.

5. Something Specific – Think about the individual’s tastes. If they have a lot of sports memorabilia perhaps consider a stadium blanket, a seat cushion or a thermos for enjoying that game. Maybe preform acts of service rather than giving material goods. Perhaps organizing the classroom, giving storage bins, cleaning the desks, etc. might be a better gift!

It is always the thought that counts when gift giving, but we still like to do our best. As you may have noticed these gift ideas were more thematic than specific! Everyone is different and would enjoy different things!
