I promise, a teacher doesn’t need (or want) another of these. (Though she’ll be adoring in her thank you note anyway!)
- Scented candles
- Scented lotions
- “#1 Teacher” mug (or #1 Teacher anything)
- Christmas Tree ornament (especially if she doesn’t celebrate Christmas.) This also applies to a Jesus Loves Me baby toy for a baby shower for a Jewish teacher Mom-to-Be. Very nice, but she doesn’t want it
- Gift Card to a store that isn’t near her home. No, she’s not going to drive over an hour for a movie she can see around the corner at a local theater. She also would rather not drive upwards of an hour to a spa, video rental shop or mall. If you’re going to gift a gift card (and gift cards are a good thing to gift!), make sure there is a store local to the teacher, or that she can redeem it online.
So, what should you gift a teacher? Find out in 5 Things Teachers Love to Receive for the Holidays, or our latest What to Gift a Teacher post.
