Last Minute Teacher Appreciation Gifts
We know that teachers truly deserve doctors’ and lawyers’ pay and everything possible under the sun for raising our littles to be kind, thoughtful, and intelligent human beings. Giving a little thank-you gift they will actually use will go a long way in showing your gratitude. Actually, “use” is the keyword here.
Teachers often get many iterations of the same item, so today we’re sharing some unique finds we know they will love. i.e., not a coffee mug.
Cute last minute teacher appreciation gifts are possible with a little, and we do mean little, creativity! Show your appreciation with a gift they will actually treasure and appreciate.
Because we know you are REALLY last minute, all of our suggestions can be purchased at Amazon. With 2-day Prime delivery, you now have no excuses!
A Gift Card
While a gift card may seem impersonal, we know your kid’s teacher will actually appreciate it so much! Your gift card doesn’t have to be generic or large to make a big impact. Does your child’s teacher love to read? Why not get a Best Buy or Amazon card? Does your teacher always have perfect nails? Why not get her a manicure gift certificate? We promise a gift card will be a huge win and best of all, you can pick one up from the grocery store kiosk!
When I was teaching, I loved getting office supplies and stationery as gifts. Which is why I know that fun stationery will surely be a hit for the teacher in your life. I promise they will tuck it away to use next year and will smile when setting up their classroom the following fall!
Plants are still having a major moment, and we know a little plant in a cute pot would make an excellent end-of-year gift. How adorable is this little plant pot set!
Electric Coffee Warmer
Busy classrooms and hot coffee aren’t two words that usually go together. But come Fall 2023, thanks to this Electric Coffee Warmer, your favorite teacher will have hot coffee all morning long! We may or may not have ordered one of these for ourselves!
A Personalized Bookmark
We love personalized items, but as mentioned above, theirs only so many Initial Mugs you can get before it seems redundant. Give the teacher in your life a personalized bookmark that they can use and cherish for years to come! But first, if you are feeling a little creative, I’m sharing a great DIY idea you can do with your children.
Words Best Teacher Candle
Why not get your teacher something they can enjoy at home, all summer long? A candle is a perfect gift to show the teacher in your life appreciation, and give them the nudge they need to FINALLY relax and unwind!
Fun Lunch Bag
Just like the students, teachers love getting new office supplies and back-to-school gear. Why not gift your teacher a fun new lunchbox to debut in Fall 2023? Bonus – they can use it all summer long for their summer beverages!
Does your child’s teacher have a book corner in their current classroom? In most schools, teachers purchase these books with their own money. Why not gift a few new books to add to his or her classroom for the following year? Your gift will be appreciated by the teacher and also by future students. To personalize this gift, why not write a little message inside the cover, thanking them for a wonderful year?
Gourmet Candy or Chocolate
Why not get that special teacher a sweet gift they will surely enjoy? Gourmet Candy is fun, delicious, and a gift they will definitely want to keep for themselves.
Teacher Book Bags
I love teacher book bags! We all know teachers have a lot on their plates and 99% of the time we’re carrying a lot of books, supplies, our own lunches and so much more. One of the best ways to treat a teacher in your life is to gift them a book bag. Especially one of the stylish ones we’re sharing below.
A Thank You Card
Sometimes, the simplest things have the most meaning. Have your little one draw or write a personalized card to their teacher, thanking them for all they did this year. A thank you doesn’t have to be expensive or elaborate to have meaning.
