1. Gift Cards

You can almost never go wrong with gift cards for teachers. Three of the best gift cards are for Amazon, Target and Starbucks. Teachers love those Prime deals, the Target Dollar Spot, and of course, their coffee! Check out these adorable and free gift card holders made by Hip2Save.

2. Markers and Pens

Fun writing utensils are always a hit! I absolutely love using fun markers for making anchor charts. The best anchor chart markers are Mr. Sketch Markers, hands down! They last forever and the kids love the fun scents they come in. For grading and lesson plans, flair pens are a teacher’s best friend. They come in beautiful colors and the felt tips write so smoothly. They also come in fun limited edition colors, too! For labeling, class crafts, and any lettering, Bright Ideas Metallic Brush Pens are the most gorgeous brush pens I’ve ever used! The metallic colors really make whatever you’re writing on pop.

3. Wine

Let’s be honest. Teachers are people, too! Just like coffee, teachers love their wine. Forget the apples – bring on the grapes. 😉

4. Cricut

For your crafty teachers, a Cricut Explore Air 2 is an amazing gift that usually goes on sale for Cyber Monday! While on the pricier side, it’s a machine that is so versatile in the classroom. It can be used to cut out fun letters for a bulletin board display, to make stickers or labels, or to make cute student gifts!

5. Teaching Accessories

It’s no secret that teachers spend a lot of their own money on teaching supplies. Some great supplies for teachers include colorful Astrobrights paper, colorful post-its, a wireless doorbell for getting the students’ attention, a presentation clicker to use during lessons, adhesive anchor chart paper, and a laminator. It’s the little things like these that make teaching more fun and that inspire teachers to get creative!

A couple of other fun accessories any teacher would love are cute pencil pouches and themed teacher tees. This pencil pouch by Kate Spade is gorgeous and will hold all those flair pens! Teacher tees are a fun way for teachers to show off their playful side and are perfect for casual Fridays, or really any day of the week if you’re like me! 😉 Check out Whimsy & Whiteboards for some adorable tees!
