I’m sorry I am just now getting this up, but as promised here is my gift guide for the teacher. If you’re new here, I was a teacher for 4 years before I quit to blog full time. Let me be frank — the best part of being a teacher is Christmas break. It’s a time to relax, unwind, rest, and enjoy the silence.
I got tons of gifts — they were all sweet, but I liked some more than others. I would have loved all of these things when I was a teacher. Want to know what I did not love? Chocolate, cookies, baked goods. Honestly, I would rather not have the temptation.
Anything having to do with self-care and relaxing is most appreciated. Anything from cozy socks or bath bombs, to face masks or lip balm. To me, this always showed that my students and their families respected all the hard work we put in!
The district I worked at had limited resources, so I always appreciated extra supplies or things for the classroom (books, notebooks, pen, highlighters, whiteboard markers, etc.). This planner saved me so many times — I still use it today! I also LOVE this laminator.
Another thing teachers love — coffee. I can’t reiterate this enough — COFFEE!!! It’s hard to come by at a school, so I love this instant coffee. It tastes good, is packed with superfoods, and you can make with just hot water. How do you get hot water in a classroom? An electric kettle of course. I’m telling you – this will save their life! Mugs are also an amazing gift – and I love this Yeti because it has a lid and keeps it hot! Teachers also use their voice ALLLLLL day, so having a reusable water bottle was clutch. This BKR is my fav!
