Where do they shop? What do they like to do?
- Are they crafty? Michaels. Hobby Lobby.
- Love to drink coffee? Starbucks is golden for many people. Others may enjoy Dunkin Donuts coffee more. You can even think of a different, local coffee chain in your area (perhaps a mom and pop shop).
- Don’t forget about non-coffee drinkers. I am a tea lover!
- Health-conscious? Whole Foods. Sprouts. Trader Joe’s. A cycling class.
- Book Lover? Barnes and Noble. Books a Million. A local bookstore in your area.
- Tech savvy? Best Buy. The Apple store. You don’t need to have a large budget for this category. Any amount would be so graciously appreciated!
- Fashion Forward? Marshalls. TJ Maxx. Zappos. DSW Shoes. Major Department Stores like Macy’s.
- Need pampering? Bath and Body Works. A local nail salon. A massage parlor like Envy Spa.
- We all have to eat, right? : ) Grocery Chains like Publix, Kroger, or Wal-Mart.
- Looking for a little indulgence? A luxe candy store like Godiva Chocolates, Sugarfina, or Dylan’s Candy Bar.
- If you are looking for a universal, perfect-fit-gift-card, cards to stores like Amazon, Target, or Wal-Mart are great choices.
- Of course, you don’t want to forget about a gift card to Teachers Pay Teachers. New resources! New fonts! oh my!
3. Teacher Tees
What a better way to say it all without saying a word! T-Shirts with slogans are so much fun! You can be professional while being comfortable, expressive without the need to run around with a bullhorn to share your thoughts, and show your school spirit all at the same time. Now, that is a comprehensive holiday teacher gift!!

Bonus Gift Idea:
A scratch off Lottery ticket or regular Lottery ticket could be life-changing! Plus, it would only cost you $2.00! A few years ago, a parent gave me a scratch off ticket in a bag with the 1000 Grand candy bar and other small chocolates inside. As you can see (LOL), I didn’t win. But, it was fun and exciting to see if I had any of the winning numbers. I guess that meant that I was meant to teach for a little bit longer.
I hope that I have given you a few inspiring suggestions for what to get for your favorite Teacher(s) and/or for your teammates and Teacher BFFs. Leave a note in the comments to tell me what surprises you will have in store for the amazing Teachers in your life!
