10 Amazing Gift Ideas for Teachers

10 Teacher Gift Ideas for the Holiday Season

Everyone knows a teacher, whether it’s one from your past or present day, or your child’s current educator. Though, since you may not know them on a deep personal level, displaying your appreciation for them can be a challenge. To help you treat a teacher, we’ve compiled our top seven classroom supplies along with three other essential gift ideas that are perfect for teachers! From antimicrobial products to hand sanitizer and tote bags, make a teacher’s day and provide them with something that can benefit both their classroom and their profession!

1. Scissor Set & Caddy

Scissors are an essential item for students in any classroom with arts and crafts. With this set of 24 Stanley 5” Kids Scissors, kids get to pick their favorite of four colors and are able to safely store them in the compact scissor caddy. Plus, the caddy can be used for so much more than just scissors—it can store paint brushes, colored pencils, craft supplies and more. We’d like to think that there’s no better gift to a teacher than the gift of organization!

2. Konnect Organizer

These desk organizers are perfect for any teacher’s personal desk organization, as it comes equipped with a phone stand, area for sticky notes, and a place to organize those pens and pencils! The cable management rail even allows for their desk to be hazard-free of loose wires. Unsightly cable wires, messy papers and junk drawers be gone with these desktop organizers!

3. World’s Greatest Teacher Mug

We all know how much our teachers do for our students throughout a long day of educating and even longer day of making assignments and grading tests and papers. Without a cup of coffee in the morning, none of that might be possible. Gift your child’s teacher with a World’s Greatest Teacher mug, to show them how much you appreciate their hard work and dedication to their students. Not only will it hold up to 18 oz but it is completely microwavable and dishwasher safe!

4. Mini Staplers

Also important for crafting and classroom projects are staplers. However, regular sized staplers may not always be suitable for small hands in preschool or elementary school. These mini staplers are compact, lightweight and fit perfectly in the palm of your child’s hand for easy squeezing. Providing a teacher with our Bostitch Nano Mini Staplers in fun, assorted bright colors means keeping tiny fingers safe and crafting fun and worry-free.

5. Antimicrobial Electric Sharpener with a Replaceable Cutter

Any teacher will surely appreciate the luxury of a quiet electric pencil sharpener. With our QuietSharp™ Glow Antimicrobial Classroom Electric Pencil Sharpener, the motor shuts off and a light comes on when sharpening is complete, making it easy and fun to use for children. Additionally, it comes with the ability to replace the cutter when dull, making it budget-friendly and the unit long-lasting. Specifically designed for a classroom of eager students, it’s also colored pencil capable and made for continuous use. Not only is this amazing electric sharpener distraction-free, but it’s also antimicrobial protected to help keep both kids and teachers safe from the spread of germs!

6. Electric 3-Hole Punch

Teaching kids how to stay neat and organized starts with their binders. To help students in this effort, it makes sense for instructors to provide pre-punched handouts. Though, that may require a lot of work on their end. Gift them with our best Electric 3-Hole Punch, which features a touch-free hole punching experience that the entire class can enjoy without spreading germs! It’s durable metal construction for longevity can easily punch through 12 sheets – the perfect amount for a class on any school day!

7. Hand Sanitizer

Along with the antimicrobial and non-touch electric products, give your teachers some of the most sought-after back to school year presents like hand sanitizer and Clorox wipes that the whole class can use! Helping to stop the spread of germs in your child’s classroom with some hand sanitizer and Clorox wipes can help your child’s teacher take the preventative measures needed to keep their classroom healthy and safe. It may seem like a small gesture at first, but these gifts will keep on giving throughout the rest of the school year.
