Gifts to Brighten Your Teacher's Holiday Season
You’ve had some amazing teachers in your life. Whether it’s the coach who coaxed self-confidence out of your shy little one, the teacher who guided you through college applications or the mentor who helped you find your true calling, educators add immeasurable value to our communities and lives.
The holiday season is the time to show these special people you appreciate everything they do for others. We’ve put together a guide to help you find Christmas presents for teachers that stand out. Here are our inspirational gifts to brighten your teacher’s holiday season.
If your teacher helped you realize that every day is a gift, show her you were listening with a Make Today Amazing tea towel that says it for you. The textiles from Glory Haus make special teacher gifts for Christmas because — like teachers — our Fair Trade textiles change lives. Our Daughters of Hope facility in India creates fair-wage jobs for women from the slums who have no other options for employment. These talented women receive free healthy lunches, childcare and an opportunity to lift their families out of poverty. Your teacher will love knowing you heard her lessons and put them into action.
Cute Ceramic Cups
Offer your teacher or mentor a ceramic mug for their favorite beverage along with a message that echoes the inspiration they’ve given you through the years, like this Keep Calm and Teach On mug. A hand-painted coffee mug filled with their favorite tea bags, ground coffee or sweet treats makes a cute teacher gift that’s also practical. Even if they don’t drink coffee or tea, fill one of our unique mugs with colorful pens, candy canes or a live indoor plant to show that special instructor you value their contribution to your growth and education.
For that coach or teacher who’s also an avid gardener, you can’t go wrong with a whimsical garden stake as a unique teacher gift for Christmas. Our metal garden stakes are made to withstand the elements for years of outdoor delight. Choose a baseball-themed garden stake for your coach, a camping theme for your science teacher who loves Big Sur or a sweet summertime theme for a cute teacher gift they’ll chuckle at as they wait for summer break. Garden stakes are some of our more unique teacher gift ideas, so you know yours will stand out.
Bulbs of Brilliance
A Christmas ornament becomes a truly unique Christmas gift when you personalize it with your teacher’s, coach’s or mentor’s name. Long after you’ve moved on to the career they’ve helped you prepare for, a personalized coach Christmas tree ornament will warm their hearts with memories of your hard work and gratitude. The real brilliance of a teacher Christmas ornament gift is how it remains meaningful every time it comes out of the box to hang on a bough. When you add your personal message to our hand-painted creations, they become keepsake treasures that commemorate your time together forever.
Presents with Purpose
Show your teacher or mentor you really absorbed their lessons about giving back to those less fortunate than you with a unique teacher gift from our Repurposed on Purpose collection. Partnered with MUST Ministries in the Greater Atlanta, Georgia, region, this program helps women transition out of difficult circumstances with job skills, mentoring and support for self-direction. The lovely jewelry or leather goods these women craft make meaningful Christmas presents for teachers, coaches and mentors who inspire.
