Teacher’s Gifts – From Tech to Trendy
It’s Back-To-School time and classroom open houses are around the corner. A perfect way to make a great first impression is to offer a gift that will be appreciated all school year long. Teachers work so long and do so much for our kids, finding something that they will use and appreciate makes going in every morning before dawn just a bit better.
We have compiled a selection of useful and fun gifts that make going Back-to-School a little better, a little more fun. Tech gadgets are always great, from custom USB drives to MP3 players. Of course, don’t limit yourself to just one of these gifts – I know I would love all of them! Read on for this list of great gifts for teachers at Back-to-School.
Great Gift Ideas for Teachers
Find out you teacher’s interests and you will have a good idea of what kind of publications might make a great gift. Feel free to go beyond education magazines – with everything out there, check out magazines that are about gardening, science, nature, tech, and literary/arts magazines as well.
Everyone likes to go out to eat, shop a little bit and get themselves something special they might not otherwise get. A gift card is the perfect way to treat your teacher. It also makes it easy because it has a real value and can be used when and for whatever your educator wants to use it for.
USB flash drives are a great gift because they can be customized and come in a variety of sizes and colors. Find out where he or she went to college and give them their alma matter college logo USB drive. Now they can store their files, photos, music and more and carry them to work, home and back again.
Cards, thank yous, notes – sending a quick reply happens all the time. A gift of personalized or special stationary turns writing a normal old note into a unique experience with special meaning. Find a great set of cards or initial stationary and give something that turns a normal moment into a nice one.
Early mornings often require a jolt of energy. The need for a bit of caffeine is normal for teachers and a special, high-end travel mug is not just a nice gift but an act of empathy. Paper cups add to waste, but a reusable mug makes for a great gift and adds a touch of class each morning on the way to the classroom.
