Best Back-To-School Teacher Gift Ideas

What Teachers Might Actually Like!

Teachers are the unsung heroes of our society. They dedicate their lives to shaping young minds, and anytime there's an opportunity, let's show them some love! Back-so-school is always a little emotional and believe me, it is a rollercoaster for teachers as well! Teachers have been planning this new school year all summer long... likely without a decent break! 

As we gear to return to a new school year, a quick little welcome gift with sure be a surprise. But I often ask, what do they really like?? With my kid's teachers, I like to get them something they would actually love and that is personalized! I created this free Teacher Survey, which can be used to get to know your teacher as you get back to school this Fall!  Feel free to print it out so the kiddos give to the teacher and have them return it back. I think you'll really take the guess work out of what your teacher might like.

1. The "Pun-tastic" Mug

Teachers love a good pun, so why not gift them a mug that will make them chuckle every morning? Look for one with a clever saying like "I'm a teacher, what's your superpower?" or "Don't make me use my Teacher voice!", or how about "Born to Teach, Forced to Grade!" 

2. The "Grading" Candle

Teachers often spend their evenings grading papers or preparing lesson plans. Help them create a cozy atmosphere with a calm-scented candle. I am sure they will grade with ease.

Teachers have a knack for making their students laugh. Return the favor with a desk sign that showcases their sense of humor. Look for one that says "Warning: Genius at Work" or "I'm silently correcting your grammar."
