I can’t believe the craziest school year in the history of my life as a Mother is almost coming to an end! I think I can speak for a lot of Moms when I say that this school year almost broke me…and definitely tested the relationship I have with each of my kids to its edges. I’ve been so surprised by how adaptable my kids were, how open-hearted, and how brave in the face of so many changes and uncertainties. And if there is anyone we have to praise even more than the amazing kids—it’s their teachers!
From Zoom to masked classroom lessons, and everything in between, America’s teachers have been through the wringer this year. I really do consider educators to be an “essential worker” that maybe aren’t celebrated as profoundly as people in the medical field. But, to watch all of my kids’ teachers come to school every day with so much patience and love for the kids and for the entire crazy education process we have been dealt…it was just so inspiring to see. I’m SO thankful to our educators for being so strong and selfless and creating some semblance of stability for all of our children as they navigated this unsettling year. As the year draws to a close, I’m excited to celebrate our teachers, and today I thought I would share a little Teachers Gift Guide to inspire you to do the same!
A little note on teacher gifts—I’ve heard from so many over the years that gift cards are the most appreciated teacher gift. At the end of the day, teachers have miles-long wish lists from themselves and their families, that a great gift card (Like Target, Walmart, Amazon, Visa, etc) can really help with.
Teachers don’t get paid enough. Period. But I also know that sometimes it’s nice to get something a little bit personal. I just wanted to note that any of the gifts in this gift guide can be supplemented with a gift card! LOL. I also have always liked gifting a manicure gift certificate to someplace local for school teachers. It’s a nice way to boost the local economy during these crazy times!
All of the products below are under $50, so I hope you enjoy this Teachers Gift Guide as much I enjoyed creating it! Let me know which one are your faves!
