Teachers work so hard every day. They spend hours in the classroom teaching our kids and more hours outside of the classroom doing all the things they can’t get done during the school day. 

If you feel like I do – that “thank you” isn’t quite enough to express how much we appreciate all teachers do for our kids, a thoughtful holiday gift is a great place to start.

I had so much fun putting together this teacher holiday gift guide! My sister is a teacher, so I had her in mind for a few of these. And my own kids – currently both in high school – have had some incredible teachers over the years. I feel confident that I know what teachers want – and what they need – to feel taken care of and appreciated! 

Use this list to help make your teacher gift-buying easy this year!

Everyone can use a great tote. Teachers – carriers of all the things – especially appreciate a fun, functional tote. Whether they’re carrying papers home to grade, workout gear to go to the gym after school, or just the “stuff” we all shlep from place to place, a tote is the answer.

A teacher’s wardrobe needs to be comfortable. A teacher deserves to feel confident AND comfortable, knowing she looks great every day. And every teacher wants to inspire her students and put smiles on their faces. Our teacher tees accomplish all that and more.

I designed each of these tees especially for teachers. They’re intended to put a smile on their faces – and their students’ faces, too. And they make getting ready for work quick and easy – they can easily be dressed up or down and layered under a cardigan, jacket, or hoodie. In other words, they make a perfect gift!

A teacher can never have too many supplies! By this time of year, their back to school supplies have started to dwindle. Toss a few of her favorites into a monogrammed tote to create the ultimate teacher appreciation “gift basket.”

You know I love a personalized gift! These self-inking, custom teacher stamps are a fun and convenient way to add a personalized touch to stationery, homework, report cards, and more. 

Coloring is a great way to relax and destress. And of course, laughter is the best medicine. This coloring book delivers all that and more. Its funny sayings and inspirational quotes help teachers wind down at the end of a long day.

Classrooms filled with students mean germs. Lots of them. Teachers do their best to stay healthy and that means a LOT of handwashing. And that leads to dry hands.

This Burt’s Bees Hand Repair Kit is just what your child’s teacher needs to help her stay moisturized and feel pampered.

There’s a reason tumblers are a super popular gift. EVERYONE loves them! Everyone needs them. 

Teachers are fueled by coffee (or sometimes tea) and water. It’s how they keep their energy up. There’s so much talking and walking and doing that make up a teacher’s day. A new, adorable tumbler to fill with their favorite beverage will put a smile on their face!

We all know how it goes, you start the day with a hot cup of coffee then one thing after the next… only two sips in and your coffee is cold.

Teachers struggle with this universal problem as much as anyone. Probably more, actually! A teacher in your life would love this thoughtful gift as much as she’ll love a warm sip of coffee halfway through the morning.

You know I am a sucker for some Rae Dunn!… And there are so many teacher mugs you are sure to find the perfect one for your teacher of the year. 

Each mug is handcrafted and hand-painted so each mug is unique, and in my personal opinion, you can never have too many.

Everyone loves a cute graphic tee, and the Tees 4 Teachers subscription is an excellent way to say, “We appreciate you!”
