I am so excited to start off my holiday gift guide series on my website this week! I will be sharing all my top gift picks and suggestions for every single special people in your life (and even the people you have to buy for just because…) and breaking them down into categories. I hope that I can help get your holiday shopping done fast and help you look like a rock star while doing it!
Today’s gift guide is a round-up of what would be on any teacher’s wish list. I put a list of things that can be used in the classroom to enhance students’ experiences or gifts that make a teacher’s already-difficult job a little nicer. Teachers don’t want extravagant items or expensive things, but things we can use with the children we love and want to help grow.
Pens, sticky notes, stickers, or even stamps are perfect for teachers gifts! We LOVE them as gifts and the children love receiving them as rewards.
Ok this is a little selfish but if a little caffeine could give just an ounce of energy the kids we teach we would be so grateful!
Gift Cards for Michaels
Michaels is the psychical pintrest for teachers. So if you’re really stuck just get a small amount towards a Michaels gift card for your child’s teacher.
Ask your child their favorite book they’ve read in class with their teachers. If you can find it in store have your child sign their name and donate it to their classroom library.
Making an ornimate or monogrammed scarf with your child’s teacher’s initials is a wonderful gift for them to enjoy at home.
Sometimes it’s best to let the receiver buy their own gifts.
Germs are everywhere but essential oils and diffusers can help elevate the situation in the classroom. Not to mention the calming effects of scents like lavender to children with sensory processing disorders.
It’s always nice for teachers to have their own secret stash of art supplies!
Having an herb garden in the classroom is a great way to encourage responsibility and cooking in the classroom. The teachers also love incorporating daily responsibilities in the classroom into weekly lesson plans.
