Gift Ideas for Teacher Appreciation Week

Here are our top gift ideas for those amazing teachers: 

Gift cards 

Who doesn’t love a gift card?!  You could treat your child’s teacher to anything! Pick up gift cards from Starbucks, Target, Amazon, etc. There are also options for Visa gift cards and tons of local ideas as well! 


Flowers in a lovely vase can help to brighten anyone’s day and classroom! Let your kids help by picking flowers (if available) or helping to choose the bouquet from the store. You could also buy a plant that could be transported home or could live in the classroom and would last longer than a bouquet of flowers!

Hand-written cards or pictures

What a special keepsake for your child’s teacher. Have your kids spend some time drawing pictures or cards and including a hand-written note, just from them! 

Provide lunch

Drop by one day with a special lunch for your child’s teacher 

Offer to volunteer!

There are always extra jobs and things that a teacher may need help with. Offer to help with those extra things to help out! 


Make a teacher’s morning with a little caffeine as you’re dropping the kids off for the day.

Classroom items

 Are there items that your child’s teacher needs for the classroom? Offer to pick up more pencils, crayons, Kleenex, or wipes for the classroom. Oftentimes, teachers have to purchase these items on their own, this would help to further their budget! 

Gift baskets

The options are truly endless! You could put together a self-care basket (nail polish, slippers, moisturizer, face masks, etc) or maybe a kitchen basket (hand towels, kitchen utensils, spices, cookbooks).

We hope these ideas have helped you to prepare for Teacher’s Appreciation Week and that you will show some love to teachers this week, they really are superheroes and deserve to be pampered!
