It’s no surprise that teachers love shiny new school supplies…especially the ones they didn’t have to buy with their own money or “borrow” from their spouse’s office!  With teachers spending over $450 a year out of pocket on supplies for their classrooms, consider this when it’s time to gift your teacher with a little something: skip the personalized mugs and the pencil-scented candles (yes, they really exist), and instead, give the gift of school supplies. Any one of these 24 practical (and pun-tastic!) school supply themed gift ideas are sure to put a smile on your teacher’s face!

Please how easy will it be getting supplies directly from you in bulk to re-sell here in Nigeria?


    Hi Steph, We don’t sell supplies or distribute supplies. Sometimes we give away supplies to United States schools when we receive donations from our sponsors. TeacherLists.


I do want something of that because my teacher is awesome
