Instead of going the generic gift card route (guilty) – this year I’m hoping to put a little more thought into what I get Piper & Flora’s teachers. My mom and sister are both teachers and I have the most vivid memories of going through alllll of my mom’s holiday gifts from her students every Christmas. There were always different baked treats, funny handmade tokens of appreciation & cheesy apple teacher ornaments. So I asked my mom and sister to share some ideas of gifts they have personally loved and I did some research to come up with this list of the best gifts for teachers. I hope you find it helpful! I also stuck co-workers & your boss into this category because almost all of the gifts seem relevant for both!

My sister said:
“I do always love the super random stuff the kids pick out like my hand soap from Teddy that was “…the best smelling one at Wegmans” and the bag of kiwis Bennett gave me because I ate a bunch of them in my lunch that year.
And my mom, “Mostly I love heartfelt cards, especially from the kids with whatever funny thoughts they have. I got a gift card to a hat store once because they noticed I wore hats, and headbands one year for the same reason.”
And then a note about the ever popular category: Gift Cards.
Gift cards – Think outside the box a little (my sister, a teacher said she gets a million Starbucks cards throughout the year) — maybe to a movie theatre or local restaurant! Or something of personal interest to the teacher. Other great gift ideas that work for teachers, caregivers, co-workers and more: massage, manicure, local experience (wine tasting, or museum).
