33 Ideas for Good Teacher Gifts

I’ve been volunteering this year as the leader of my son’s 3rd grade Sunday school class at church, and wow, has it been a tough job. All I can ever feel is awe for the teachers at school that take on these boys for 7 hours a day, 5 days a week. It also makes me want to give them all kinds of good teacher gifts to show my everlasting appreciation for their work.

And while gift cards are nice, I sometimes feel like they are a bit impersonal…like I didn’t put hardly any effort into the gift at all.

And then there’s the fact that I don’t really know where our teachers like to shop, or the restaurants at which they like to eat out. I mean, I would hate to give them something that they would likely never use.

I’ve tried buying gifts like candles or Christmas ornaments, but then one year, I thought to myself, “How many teacher ornaments has Mrs. Brown received over the years? Does she now have enough #1 Teacher ornaments to decorate 2 or 3 trees?”

In the end, I decided that making a gift would be the best thing. But it couldn’t just be ANY gift…it had to be useful, and something unique, that she couldn’t just pick up in any old Target.

This collection of teacher gifts fits that bill…and they’re also cute to boot! So make sure to pin this post to your Pinterest boards, so that the next time teacher appreciation week rolls around, you’ll be covered!
