Hi All!  Around the holidays as well as at the end of each school year I find myself struggling to find a perfect gift for my child’s teachers.  Teachers people spend a large chunk of time with my child five days a week and is in my opinion (as well as many others) WAY underpaid.  I asked a teacher friend of mine what teachers REALLY like and included her suggestions in this list of gift ideas.

Here are 20 gift ideas for teachers that I have found on Amazon and are all Prime shipping eligible.


1. “Best Teacher” Polymer Travel Mug

2. Teacher Travel Mug with Card

3. Teacher’s “Things to Do” Binder Clips (6 Pack), 2″ 

4. Teacher Peach I Teach Jumbo Tote

5. Bath Bomb Gift Set (Vegan) 

6. Holiday Gift Basket Nuts and Chocolate

7. Never Trust an Atom, they Make Up Everything T-shirt 

8. Teachers Rule! Mad Libs

9. How Teachers Swear! An Adult Coloring Book 

10. Teacher Life: A Snarky Chalkboard Coloring Book 

11. It Takes a Big Heart to Shape Little Minds Coffee Mug 

12. A Letter to My Teacher 

13. What If There Were No Teachers?: A Gift Book for Teachers and Those Who Wish to Celebrate Them 

14. Today I Made a Difference: A Collection of Inspirational Stories from America’s Top Educators 

15. AMIR Wood Grain Essential Oil Diffuser, 300ml Cool Mist Ultrasonic Humidifier

16. Infuser Water Bottle Fruit Infusion Sports Bottle 32oz

17. Starbucks Gift Cards Red Cup (3x$15)

18. Hallmark Keepsake 2017 Teachers Change the World Apple Globe Christmas Ornament 

19. Teacher Bracelet

20. Amazon.com Gift Card in a Snowflake Tin $25+

Now, all of these may not be appropriate for ALL teachers but you will have to use your better judgement on some of them.  I tend to know my daughters teachers pretty well and know their sense of humor.

**A few other great gift ideas for teachers include Target gift cards (a teacher favorite), candy, and funny/punny teacher t-shirts.  My teacher friend actually suggested these items so I would place them pretty high on the list.**

I hope that this list has helped you find a gift for that very special and usually under- appreciated teacher in your child’s life.

Thanks for reading!

  1. I love this guide. Teachers are not as easy to shop for as most think, and they deserve a nice gift. They deal with our children for eight hours a day. I will get them whatever they want.

  2. What a great list of ideas for teacher gifts! I’m a teacher myself, and though gifts are not expected, they sure are sweet and show appreciation. I personally love gift cards (Starbucks for coffee, Amazon for stuff for the classroom). XO

  3. These are such cute ideas for teachers. I friend of mine was looking for something to give her son’s teacher I’ll pass this along to her.
