Best Teacher Gifts – Stand Out This Year!

Want to stand out this year when you present your teacher with their well-deserved gift? I can’t imagine anyone saying no so I’m here to help!


Coming into the fall season, I’m already beginning to think about what I want to shop for and this includes all of my daughter’s amazing teachers! I don’t know about you, but I’m a mid and year-end gift giver more so now than ever before. Teachers have had their hands full over the last couple of years and have earned some special attention for their efforts in my book!


Whether you are looking for a holiday teacher gift, year-end, or just because you are in the right place. I’ve compiled a list of the best gifts for any teacher and added them into the following categories: 

This one I fell in love with and is rather unique, the hot pad/oven mitt is darling yet useful, plus, you’ll have a few opinions to choose from. They go excellent with a sweet treat whether homemade or storebought. It’s also nice to pair with a basket of baking mixes or yummy dips that can be pulled out during the holidays.

Cups, thermos, and mugs are never a bad way to go even though they are not all that unique. I’ve gone in a water bottle or tumbler with a straw direction in the years past as well as the travel mug because let’s face it, not many teachers survive without hydration of some sort 😉 This year, I’ve taken a fancy to the coaster or trivet as well! 

Gifts for the classroom are always a hit! I don’t know a teacher that couldn’t use another cute tote or notebook. If you are after something a bit more unique but want to stay with the Classroom theme, the personalized mouse pad is fun yet functional. If you’d like to go a bit more bold, the door/wall hanging personalized with your child’s teacher’s name is awesome too! 



Lastly, and typically less thought of, gifts for the teacher’s home. Yep, believe it or not, your teacher does not live at the school! Candles are a hit, especially when you choose lighter sents, as well as unthought-of items such as keychains or spoon holders. 

That sums up my three top categories and my all-time favorite item for the best teacher gifts that will have you standing out this year! If you still didn’t find that perfect gift, check out Zulily for more ideasFreshly for a Gift Card to some easy healthy meals, or the BeeKeeper’s Naturals for some hive-powered health solutions. 


Remember to shop early for the best selection especially if you are after a personalized option, they always take longer to receive AND the masses are last-minute deal nabbers so you don’t want to be mixed up in that.
