Teacher Gifts To Give a Little Thanks

What do you give the person who spends their days educating and nurturing your child for the greater part of a year? A thoughtful, inspiring teacher is worth his or her weight in gold. While we may not have it in our bank accounts to shower them with the abundance of riches they deserve, these small tokens of appreciation are a sweet (and sometimes funny) way of saying “thank you.”

This 100% cotton tote bag from Mud Pie is the perfect show of thanks for a favorite teacher. Fill it with goodies you know they’ll love—homemade treats, books (for leisurely reading), and handmade cards from the very students whose minds they’re shaping every day. The tote is a great size for carrying papers, lunch, and other necessities to and from work.

My Quotable Students: A Teacher Journal to Record and Collect Unforgettable Quotes, Funny & Hilarious Classroom Stories

As both teachers and parents know all too well, kids say the darndest things. Help a beloved teacher record some of these doozies with a journal specifically for tracking kid quotes. Maybe you’ll even inspire a teacher to write a memoir full of their craziest classroom tales starring your child!

Just as parents are always “on,” so are teachers. A midday escape isn’t in the cards but offer a little stress-relieving boost with this pretty essential oil diffuser bracelet. Teachers can add a couple drops of their favorite essential oil to a felt pad in the locket and discreetly breath in its calming scent throughout the school day.
