Teacher Gift Ideas

If you’re anything like me, picking out gifts for people that I hardly know, like teachers, hair dressers, dog groomers, etc. can be a challenge. And that means I always leave them to the last minute. You with me??!!

I took some time to search many, many websites to find the perfect teacher gift. In my mind that means that the gift:

  1. doesn’t break the bank
  2. isn’t something the person already has a zillion of
  3. is something that the person will actually USE

So before you now are my ten best teacher gifts for Christmas 2018 (in no particular order)

  1. Any kind of gift card for a fun coffee, treats, or lunch: Starbucks, Tim Horton’s, Dairy Queen, Subway, McDonalds. (Teachers can be like a pack of wolves when it comes to food. Any thing that is somewhat edible and ends up in the teacher lunchroom is sucked up quicker than a Lego in a vacuum cleaner.) An Amazon or Chapters gift card also works well!
  2. Food is always a great choice (see #1 above) or a gift card to GET food.
  3. Fancy markers or Sharpies, or any other fun type of school supplies. Remember we are NERDS!!
  4. Movie tickets taped to a box/can of popcorn
  5. Gas gift card or car wash coupon
  6. Something you can find at the checkout counter of your local hardware store: flashlight, inexpensive screwdriver or hammer, batteries, duct tape
  7. Personalized vase, pencil holder, clip board, lunch tote or note cube
  8. DIY pedicure set
  9. A “Night In” gift basket – you can include things like jigsaw puzzle, snuggle blanket, cozy socks, microwave popcorn, single serve hot chocolate, a movie the teacher has mentioned, etc.
  10. A “White Christmas” gift basket –  You could include anything a teacher needs to survive a day at school, so long as it’s white or comes in a white container! For example, check out this sample from Shaken Together Life

I hope you found some useful ideas tonight, and now for the fun part!

Head on over to my shopping site HERE. In the search bar, type in the word “white”. A LOT of items will come up! Order any white thing on the list, and I will give you an amazing 40% discount on those white items.

The fine print:

  • You have to order through me to get the extra special pricing.
  • Shipping, as always, is calculated on the full retail price.
  • You have to order by 8:00 pm on Thursday, December 20, 2018. All bets are off after that!


Until next time
