11 Teacher Gift Ideas - What Teachers REALLY Want

Figuring out what to get your child’s teacher for the holidays, Teacher Appreciation Week, or “just because” can be challenging.  Not only do you want the gift to be something that he or she will enjoy, but it also needs to fit within your budget.  We took the guesswork out of the whole gift deciding process and went straight to the source to find out what teachers really want.

    You can keep this whole list. All I want is my kids to come to school, every day, on time, prepared. And if they can’t come prepared (because of money, or extenuating circumstances, etc), I would love for my families to just tell me and keep me in the loop because maybe I could help if I knew. These things would automatically mean less stress for me and they cost nothing.

    Great ideas but I would rather not receive homemade baked goods. I always feel terrible about it, not I won’t eat them.

    I get SO much lotion, and the cheap stuff isn’t all that helpful, so I’d take that off the list and include the fast food gift cards – a quick lunch is sometimes all we have time for! Not all teachers drink coffee, either, so those general gift cards are great instead of specialized coffee shops.
    School supplies are nice to get, especially the better, more expensive ones – we get enough cheap glue sticks, etc., so a few “good” items would make great gifts! Nice pens, Flairs, fun colored Sharpies, etc., are all good ideas, as well as things like paper plates, baggies, scrapbook paper…..
