It’s almost the end of the school year, and we all want to show our children’s teachers (or our own) how much we appreciate them! While giving the typical gift card is perfectly appropriate, sometimes we want to do a little bit more to show our love for the teachers. The Gift Insider is bringing you the perfect gifts to show teacher appreciation!
1. For the “young-at-heart” teacher
Adult coloring books are ALL the rage this year and this one is a personal TGI favorite. Stunning patterns made by ColorIt, free your creativity and relax the mind. Perfect for the youthful teacher that wants to de-stress from the year in a unique way.
3. For the “active” teacher
S’well water bottles are everywhere right now and trust us; where there’s smoke, there’s fire. These water bottles keep hot liquids hot for up to twelve hours and cold liquids ice cold for up to twenty-four. Bonus- we’ve heard that the 24oz. ones can hold a full bottle of wine (let the teachers thank you later).
These personalized Mark and Graham journals are the perfect gift for the teachers that love to write. Set with a cherry wood veneer and stuffed with thick Italian paper, these are not your typical drugstore notebooks. Say thank you by (stylishly) giving them the tools to express their thoughts.
5. For the “luxury-loving” teacher
Every teacher could use a luxurious tool to help them relax and unwind from their crazy days. Bath bombs are perfect at the end of the day, and nice shaving kits are the best way to start your day off on a good note. These are two options for the male and female teachers that we love.
