Best Teacher Gifts.
Teacher Gifts. One last stressor before summer begins. Instead of the last minute priceless masterpiece that your kids created for the “World’s Best Teacher” on the last piece of scrap paper in the house, give them something that they will love, use and remember! I’ve compiled several ideas for the best teacher gifts.
- Spice/Dinner Club.
I know what you’re thinking. What is that? Well, it’s awesome and if you don’t belong to one yet, you’re behind the curve. Spice or Dinner clubs are where you get spice packet and/or meal ideas send to you monthly. The one I’ve fallen in love with is Spiceé Gourmet. They offer a monthly membership where you receive 5 recipes and the spices you need to make them. It keeps you out of the rut from the same boring meals and de-clutters your spice cabinet as you have what you need in cute little packets! Spiceé Gourmet also offers by the bottle spices for the ones you find you can’t live without (in my case, Spiceé’s Chicken Cluck and Sweet and Savory!) It’s a great gift for any teacher! And depending on how great they are, you can choose from a one time gift or a monthly gift (note: this is a great idea if you have younger kids so when they get into school, they are moved to the top of the “good list!”).
- Essential Oils. The new craze.
There are several Essential Oils that any teacher would be crazy not to love. You can either dabble in making your own products (think hand sanitizer, foaming hand soap, immunity boosting rollerball, relaxing bath salts, foot scrubs…the list goes on!) or give them the oils with recipes for them to make their own! The only essential oils I use and recommend are Young Living Essential Oils due to their high quality and seed to seal promise–that is, they do not source out any part of the process from planting the seeds, to bottling the product to ensure that only the highest quality/grade makes it into your hands. Young Living also offers pre-made products that would be great for teachers including Thieves Spray (to disinfect and de-germ any area), Shampoos/Soaps if you want to make up a personal care basket and they offer several diffusers if you REALLY liked the teacher so they can use the essential oils you give them in their classroom or house!
- Potted Plant in Designer Pot.
If your kids are still young enough to WANT to do art for their teachers, a practical and cute use of their talent is to buy and decorate a flower pot and put in fresh herbs. Even if they don’t have a garden, they can enjoy the fresh herbs in the pot for the summer and think of your little darling every time they use it!
Our kid’s favorite way to decorate the pot is to use chalkboard paint for the base, then use paint parkers to fine tune their masterpiece. It’s a priceless treasure AND it’s practical, plus it doesn’t break the bank! Remember to mark it with their name and the date!
- A Personalized Mug or Tumbler.
There are several ways to personalize either a mug for coffee drinkers or tumbler for teachers. You can use paint markers to create your own design or personalize your teacher’s name on them. For an extra special teacher, drop in a gift card for a coffee or frozen treat! I mean, who doesn’t love an ice cream cone treat over summer break?
- Gift Cards with a Personalized Note.
I know the above ideas all sound amazing, but it’s the night before the last day of school and you’re scrambling…again. Make a quick stop to a coffee shop, craft store or even buy a gas card with a heartfelt thank you and that might be the best teacher gifts that are appreciated the most!
Oh, and if you really, REALLY loved their teachers this year, you could always buy them what they really need after a long school year. A gift card to the nearest liquor store and a personalized set of wine glasses. Make this the year that you treat your teacher right with one of our best teacher gifts!
