Teacher Appreciation Gifts
Whether you’re shopping for Teacher Appreciation Week or for a college recommendation thank you gift, it’s always a good idea to brighten an educator’s day with a little special something.
When selecting your teacher’s gift, it’s important to reflect on their interests, both inside the classroom and out. Creative gifts for the art and art history teachers, literary gifts for English teachers, and so on. Or, if you want a gift to accessorize their classroom or office, here are two ideas to get you started:
Albert Einstein Action Figure by Today is Art Day — what better accessory to decorate a teacher’s desk than one of history’s greatest real life superheroes? At five inches tall, this action figure features Einstein’s signature mustache and wild hair, and includes a removable pipe and violin. It’s sure to make your teacher smile!
Big Wooden Cat Pile Game by Comma — nicknamed “cat Jenga”, this adorable game is one of our best-sellers. It comes with six wooden felines that you must stack as high as you can without toppling over. This gift is as cute as a kitten and the perfect desk accessory for a cat-loving teacher.
Gifts for Art Teachers:
If your teacher has spent the year inspiring your creativity, return the favor with a creative gift! Quickly recall your classes over the past year for ideas. Do they have a favorite artist? Art style? Or favorite medium of art? There are numerous ways to indulge your teacher in artistic presents.
The Artists Socks Gift Set by Chattyfeet — Does your teacher have a bit of a whimsical side? The Artists Socks Gift Set includes four socks inspired by famous artists, including Andy Sock-Hole, Feetasso, Frida Callus, and Vincent Van Toe. With this fun set your teacher can change their art style to suit their mood!
Brief History of Art Mug by Unemployed Philopher’s Guild — Shopping for the creative teacher? Well, this mug will test their skills with each drink! It features 24 images that represent the evolution of Western art over the past thousand years. Not only that, it’s pretty nifty to have a little art gallery wrapped around one mug.
Gifts for English Teachers:
When shopping for an English or Literature teacher, it’s helpful to glance over this year’s syllabus. They worked tirelessly to make new books and themes engaging for the class, so reciprocating with a book-inspired gift is a stellar move! Or, if you want a gift that’s more evergreen, try shopping for reading accessories. Coffee mugs, bookmarks, and bookends are essentials for every English teacher’s classroom.
Wicked Witch Bookmark by Mybookmark — If your teacher is a bit of a bookworm, chances are they’re in desperate need of more bookmarks! The Wicked Witch bookmark will help your teacher keep their place in comic style—when the book is closed, the tiny legs stick just beyond the pages calling “Come here my pretty!” to your teacher when they want to pick up where they left off.
‘Pride and Prejudice’ Book Clutch by Bagatelle Studio — This bag has all of the elegance of Jane Austen’s beloved novel with the functionality of a clutch! Instead of pages, you’ll find pockets that are perfect for storing a wallet, keys, as well as your teacher’s favorite book. It’s the whimsical accessory that carries from school to the weekend.
Hooray, the hard part is over! Now that you’ve chosen the perfect gift for your teacher, think about including a hand-written card, thanking them for their hard work. They’re sure to appreciate it!
