10 Teacher Gift Ideas

Teachers work hard to educate and prepare the next generation. Small gifts at holidays or the end of the year can show your appreciation and let the teacher know that her hard work is valued. Forget about coffee mugs and apple-themed crafts — here are 10 thoughtful teacher gift ideas that your child’s instructor will actually use. Each one is listed by price, from most to least expensive, so it’s easy to find one that fits your budget.

For a truly personalized gift, pair these teacher gift ideas with an extra treat — slip school supplies into a tote bag, or include a gourmet chocolate bar with a pack of teacher stamps.

If you don’t know a teacher well, or if you want to give them the freedom to choose, a gift card is a thoughtful choice. An Amazon gift card enables teachers to choose from almost anything on the site, either for themselves or for the classroom, and you can customize it to suit your budget. The print-at-home option is perfect for last-minute gifts — simply tuck the printout into a card and send it to school with your child. No shipping fees and no waiting!
