Teacher Gift Guide - Handmade & Thoughtful Gifts Ideas

The last day of school is around the corner, and it’s time to find thoughtful present for an educator who’s gone above and beyond will put a smile on their face.

Of course, first we would think of chocolate box or maybe a gift card. As much “universal” these might seem, for me they sound like “last minute” kind of gifts, or “who doesn’t like chocolate?”

But this year, why not think outside the box with your choices? It’s fun to get creative with gift giving by presenting her with something that’s a little bit more personalized to teacher tastes—that way, she’ll/he’ll know how much you appreciate her or his hard work, patience, and commitment to the job.

If you know your kid teacher is very specific about the cup of joe she brings into the classroom every day, instead of the regular mug-and-beans set, look for a unique brew or a techy mug that keeps coffee extra warm.

          Shop Best TEAcher Mug at Totally Teacher       


Rustic Tumbler by Lilac Pearl Designs  


If your kid teacher has already cool mug how about crochet coaster in fun shape like an apple or a cat? Check MonikaDesign shop for more fun and colorful coasters.



We should also remember Teachers are people like everyone else, with individual styles and preferences.  If you know a teacher very well and you get to know her tastes, try something from jewelry shelf.

Another great idea are everyday use kitchen items, like Pot Holder or funny Kitchen Towels. As an adult we all know these kitchen items are always handy and no matter how many we have, they have magical way of disappearing, so it’s always good idea to get another one!

Here are some great examples of kitchen linen gift ideas for teacher:

My favorite gift idea are rustic decorations that can be use at home or at the classroom. These items are not only pleasing to the eye but also very useful in everyday teacher task.
