20 Best Teacher Gifts To Give Even Last Minute

Even though the holidays and the New Year are quickly approaching, I have yet to start shopping. Luckily my 9 year old daughter is on top of things and gave me a list of best teacher gifts to help her pick a few favorites. This came after she informed me that we would not be giving gift cards.

My kids have always been fortunate to be taught by some of the most incredible and kind teachers. Teachers that not only want their students to do well academically, but also care about teaching them to be good human beings in this world, while providing them with a safe environment each day. I could never forget to show their teachers appreciation for all that they do.

If you are like me and tend to wait until the last minute to shop, the items on this list of 20 best teacher gifts can all easily be purchased on Amazon!

What do you give a teacher for Christmas?

There is such a variety of options when it comes to what to give a teacher for Christmas. I have so many gift ideas including desk organizers, mugs, tote bags, ornaments and signs. 

A lot of it depends on the teacher (does your child only have them for one class or all day long), your budget and even how friendly you are with the them. 

My go to best Christmas gifts for teachers are normally gift cards, but this year my daughter really wanted to get them something that was a little more unique and maybe even personalized. 


Is a mug a good gift?

Even if your child’s teacher doesn’t drink coffee or tea, the answer to is a mug a good gift is YES! 

Mugs, especially when they have funny, inspirational or motivational sayings on them, make great desk decor.

They are perfect for holding writing utensils, change or a few fresh or faux flowers. 

How much do you spend on teacher gifts?

How much you decided to spend on teacher gifts all comes down to personal preference as well as your budget. 

My suggestion would be to spend anywhere between $15-$25 on a teacher’s gift. That price may decrease some if you have multiple teachers to buy gifts for.

Gift giving for my kids teachers got more difficult once my now teenage son started in middle school, because each year he had at least 6 different teachers.
