Gone are the days where surprising your teacher with a shiny apple on their desk before first period is a thing. Gift-giving has come a long way since the classics, making the experience for both teachers and students more personalised and memorable than it originally was.
Teachers are responsible for shaping children at a tender age, making them the great doctors, lawyers, actors, and musicians they are today. It’s safe to say, a world without teachers, is a world without progress.
Here are the best personalised teacher gifts you can give your second parents to make them feel special.
Saying that teachers are stressed is an understatement – they are overworked and (in most cases) underpaid. The only thing that keeps them motivated is their love for educating students and coffee.
A healthy dose of caffeine to jumpstart their day is essential. Give your favorite teacher this elegant, eco-friendly reusable bamboo coffee cup. Keep coffee hot over a long period of time with this double-walled stainless inner case.
You can have the teacher’s name printed or initials on the coffee cup for a more personalised experience.
Teachers need a cup of coffee to energize them in the morning, but at the end of the day, what they need is to soak their body in warm water with a soothing scented candle lit at the side. It’s a beautiful way to remind your teacher self-care is part of the job.
There’s a sweet message at the front of the candle that says ‘Truly Amazing Teacher’ with a designated space for your personalised message. An amazing parting gift to give your teacher during graduation.
Wine is EVERY teacher’s best-friend. You know what they say, when the going gets tough, a bottle of wine gets going. The best way to unwind after a stressful day is sometimes to have a glass of wine and binge-watch How I Met Your Mother.
Write your short message of your teacher on the tag. After all, there are just some days where a bottle of wine is better than a piece of apple.
