Top 5 Teacher Christmas Gifts!
A short and sweet guide for Christmas shopping for a teacher, firsthand from a teacher.
‘Tis the season to be shopping! Or at least it has been for me since Black Friday! If you’re a mom like me, then you know how important it is to show the teachers in your child’s life how much they are appreciated. But thinking of a gift is not always easy. Especially when you may have more than one child. It can be difficult to buy something worthwhile and affordable without coming off as cheap, LOL. Lucky for you, I was able to get the insider scoop from a teacher herself (my sister) which is a good thing, because she won’t hold back! So here’s the list in no particular order.
- Beauty gifts
• Hand lotions- travel size to fit in desk
• Lip balm, lip gloss
• Nail polish
• Face masks- (Sephora has great ones for $6)
(Teacher insider scoop- “Our skin, especially our hands and lips get really dry by the end of the day. A cute polish is nice too because we don’t always have time to get a manicure.”)
- Fashion Accessories
(Teacher insider scoop- “Kids really do pay attention to what you are wearing; having some accessories to add to your outfit is really fun and trendy.”)
- Favorite Snacks
• Granola bars
• Dried fruits and nuts
(Teacher insider scoop-“Snacks are a great way to keep your energy level going; it adds a great boost to your day.”)
- Gift Cards
(Teacher insider scoop-“Gift cards, especially ones that are practical, can be used for daily life. This really helps with a teacher’s budget since some of life’s expenses won’t have to come out of our paycheck.”)
- Letters from Students!!!! (Teacher insider scoop- “It’s always nice to hear how the students themselves appreciate you first hand. These are moments in their lives that we are part of and they truly enjoy. These letters are my all time favorite holiday gift!!!!”)
So there you go, teacher’s top 5 holiday gifts that won’t break the bank. Have fun and remember, it’s always the thought that counts.
