teacher gift #1
Does your favorite teaching teammate love a little classroom karaoke? Loudly announcing one too many bathroom breaks? This is the gift for her.
teacher gift #2
Is the temperature at your school controlled by the district office miles away? It so, having one of these extra large cozy cardigans handy is always a good idea. Plus, putting it on feels like a warm hug. Choose your teammate’s favorite color and you’re set!
teacher gift #3
Fashionable Teacher Bag for ALL Those Papers
Price: $15-$30 (surprisingly reasonable!)
You know her old bag is frayed and worn from toting all of those guided reading books and folders full of grading home and back every night.
Replace her old bag with this super cute floral bag with built in charger or opt for something with a literary flair like this Make Way for Ducklings canvas tote.
teacher gift #4
Does your favorite teacher need a “bring down the noise level” reminder? A “come to the carpet” signal? This wireless doorbell is the perfect solution when only a “ding” will do. Just remind her not to lose the remote. 🙂
teacher gift #5
Motivational Water Bottle
Drinking enough water is hard. These motivational reminders + times can keep hardworking and perpetually-distracted teachers on track throughout a long day.
teacher gift #6
What teacher doesn’t want a cool scarf for those chilly outdoor recess days? There are Alice in Wonderland, Harry Potter & Pride & Prejudice versions!
teacher gift #7
Personalized Lanyard & Whistle(s)
Price: $16 for lanyard + 2 whistles
How perfect is this Wonder Woman lanyard for your super teacher bestie? Get a set of lanyards and some new whistles (you know it’s time to retire your nasty old one), and be recess police twinners until you have to blow that (shiny new) whistle and head inside.
teacher gift #8
Make grading a little less painful (and a lot more colorful) with these cute encouraging stamps. No stamp pads needed!
teacher gift #9
A Piece of Jewelry You Know She’ll Love
Price: Bracelets $13 & $15, Necklace $65 (Yes, this one is spendy but can be the perfect teammate gift for a special occasion. I used it as a goodbye gift. Love you Mrs. Villecco!)
These green and silver cuff bracelets reminiscent of Wonder Woman are the perfect chunky wrist-wear for your favorite Super Teacher Teammate. If she’s more of a necklace gal, this hammered metal interlocking circles necklace is a sleek piece of statement jewelry. Plus the cute interlocking circles are a metaphor for your fantastic friendship. I call gold circle!
teacher gift #10
Comfy Slippers for Under Her Desk
Price: $22-30 for slippers + $16 for Airborne (large pack)
After a day on your feet, and most likely a long night of grading and planning ahead, slipping into a nice pair of cozy socks or slippers is the best.
Add a wrapped pack of Airborne for the perfect “Welcome to cold and flu season” gift (you know you’ll both be needing these come January).
teacher gift #11
Price: $22 case + $7 styluses
If your teacher bestie is a pro at creating workshop conferencing notes on her iPad, or is always playing around with the newest educational apps, how about getting her a new iPad cover that comes in a variety of colors (and actually stands up like it’s supposed to)?
Add a set of colorful styluses to keep her looking good while getting her tech on. Plus, with a set of 6 she can have a stylus in every one of her teacher bags! Add a little ribbon, and the styluses alone can make the perfect techy teacher bff gift!
teacher gift #12
Picture Book + Stuffed Animal
Price: $30-50 for hardcover book + plush
If your teammate is always adding to her mentor text library (who isn’t?) then try a picture book with matching stuffed animal she can use to brighten her classroom shelves. If she’s a teacher mom (bless her!), she can also add this to her little one(s)’ room instead.
Finding Winnie + Classic Winnie the Pooh, Knuffle Bunny + Plush Knuffle Bunny, We are in a Book + Elephant and Piggie, Dragons Love Tacos + Dragon, Don’t Let Pigeon Drive the Bus + Pigeon, and Olivia + (the one and only) Olivia are my faves.
teacher gift #13
You know your best teacher friend works on the couch and in bed while texting you on the weekends. This cute little lapdesk can make those overtime hours a whole lot more comfy.
teacher gift #14
Journal + Flair Pens
Price: $16 for Journals (set of 3), $9 (12 pack) for Flair Pens
It’s hard to go wrong with something pretty to write in and something colorful to write with. (Your super teacher senses just tingled a little didn’t they?)
teacher gift #15
Single Cup Coffee Maker
Price: $70-80 for coffee maker (depending on color), $26 for set of 40 K-cups
Go big or go home! A single cup coffee maker she can keep in her classroom along with a variety pack of K-pods is the ultimate “Let’s chat over a warm cup of something yummy during our planning time instead of updating our data wall” gift. The multi-colored Keurig machines can compliment any classroom decor.
