Teaching is a tough job, whether it’s teaching kindergarten students how to read, essay writing to middle schoolers, or chemistry to high school students. Their hard work, dedication to our kids, and endless amounts of patience don’t go unnoticed. During Teacher Appreciation Week, we get to celebrate those amazing educators that show up every day for our kids. So, let’s skip the usual gifts — coffee mugs and a hand lotion set — and get creative with their gifts! From self care and splurges to thoughtful gifts, here are the gifts your child’s teacher will adore.
Teachers are lifelong learners. So, give your favorite teacher the chance to learn something new and exciting with Masterclasses: a cooking class from Gordon Ramsey, a poetry class from Amanda Gorman, singing lessons from Mariah Carey, to name a few. From world leaders to icons, there are so many amazing classes your child’s teacher can enjoy.
Make lunchtime a little warmer and yummier with this lunch Crock-Pot. It’s small, portable, and it quickly warms up food. Instead of waiting in line to use a microwave or grabbing a sandwich on the go, this gadget makes it easy for teachers to have a delicious hot lunch every day!
Whether they use this diffuser in their classroom or take it home, it will help make their surroundings calmer, more relaxed, and smell better too. This diffuser is controlled by a remote, so no matter where they are, the diffuser can be turned on and the gentle smells of essential oils can fill the room.
If your child’s teacher loves movies, skip the movie gift card and give them this mini movie projector instead. They can download movies from their favorite streaming services and watch a flick outside or anywhere they want to go. They can even have some fun with the kids by showing a movie at school on the projector.
A midday snack is a great pick-me-up on a busy day and with this giant snack box, your child’s teacher will always have a treat on hand. With over 52 snacks, they can satisfy their sweet tooth or salty and crunchy cravings. Just be sure to add a note that these snacks are for them — they don’t have to share!
Keep your teachers caffeinated with this mini coffee maker. It’s small enough to fit on their desk so they don’t need to run out to grab a cup . Make this gift even more fun by adding flavored coffees and creamers.
From setting timers, looking up fun facts, and even listening to music, having an Alexa in the classroom is fun and functional. This version also has a clock, so teachers will always know how many minutes are left until the bell rings.
