As parents face the yearly dilemma of what to buy their child’s teacher for the holidays, Amazon comes to the rescue once again with ready-to-go gift options that teachers will love (and we’re not talking coffee mugs and apple-shaped paperweights!). From gift cards to unique personalized stationery and monogrammed tote bags, here are some of the top gifts, available on Amazon, that will delight teachers without cluttering their classrooms.
Gift cards top teachers’ holiday wish lists every single year, hands down. And since most teachers spend more than $500 on classroom supplies each year, anything you can do to lighten their financial load will make their holiday a little brighter. Know your teachers’ favorite restaurants? Grab a gift card and treat them to a night out (or take-out).
Teachers love stuff they can actually use (or eat!). From school supplies to homemade brownies, a basket of goodies never goes unappreciated. These gift baskets from Amazon come preassembled, and are super cute to boot.
This one can be tricky, but if you know your teacher well enough it can be a slam dunk. Check out these fashion-forward duds that most teachers would be proud to parade around the school.
They’re teachers, so chances are pretty good they love stationery. These items are both fun and unique, so your teachers probably don’t already have something like it sitting on their desks. Word to the wise? Always go for practical over cute. Teachers love cute, but if it isn’t useful, it isn’t a top teacher gift.
