Usually for teachers I go with a gift card and a treat, but if you have time to plan ahead I know they will appreciate something exciting and meaningful. Some of the personalized teacher gifts on Etsy are to die for and you can’t go wrong with a festive holiday tumbler. Just a short little idea list to get you started on your teacher gifts!
Abby is a local St. Louis designer who has the most adorable holiday items. I know that tumblers are a pretty typical gift, but I love the idea of themed seasons so they can swap out as the year goes on. $40
I can’t get enough of this style of old school handwritten ornaments. A great way for teachers to remember their classroom from that year. $15
More paper for a teacher, but they will use it. Even personalized notecards are a great idea. Frank’s teachers send home thank you notes anytime I send anything for them so I am sure they can never get enough. $40 (less if you skip the acrylic holder)
This is a pricey teacher gift, but if you aren’t buying many gifts or you have the budget for it, I think a washable zip tote is ideal for a teacher. Perfect for hauling things home and back everyday. $125
I found this after I had already ordered gifts for this year, but I think I will maybe do these for the end of the year gifts. They can hang them in the class and keep them forever! $8-120 depending on letter count.
Abigail Christine Design Wrapping Paper with Matching Tags
I am doing sets of Abby’s leopard paper with matching tags for all of my coworkers this year. A set of 2 sheets of paper is $8 and a set of 20 tags is $12. I would do 2-3 sets of paper and a set of tags for $28. If you are local she will be at Ladue Chapel Holiday Mart and the John Burroughs Unique Boutique so you can save shipping costs!
