Teachers Gifts

It’s that time of year when we are putting together our holiday shopping lists. Some of the most important people on my list (besides of course my family) are my kids teachers. We’re blessed every year with the most amazing teachers so I want to put extra effort and though into their gifts. After all they do put up with my kids and many others all day long!

So for something different we wanted to put together a list of our top 5 picks for personalized gifts for those teachers who dedicate their life to teaching our kids. The best part is these are all from Canadian companies. In no specific order our picks are:

1. Juicy Red Apple Ornament from sunshineceramics on Etsy - $13

Made with earthenware clay, stamp a teacher’s name and then glaze the apple red with a green leaf and brown stem and then attach a pretty dark green organza ribbon for hanging. The ornament is also available in Sour Apple Green. They also make a very nice gift tag or wrapping decor for a special present or anyway you think to use them. Please note, they take 3-6 weeks so don’t wait long to order!

2. Personalized Pencils from Childish – $12

Emboss the teachers name in gold into the pencil available in many different colours and create their own personalized pencil set. They allow 30 characters so you can even include a short message like “Mrs. Smith – The Best Teacher!”

3. Book Labels from Mabel’s Labels - $16.95

Give a gift every teacher will use and help ensure their belongings will be returned back to them with these stylish, versatile labels. Please note, these labels are not waterproof. If their teacher is anything like me you can give any of the labels they sell and they would be happy. I use my sticky labels on everything from my iPhone to my stapler!

4. Personalized Notepads from Grace Announcements - $22

A great gift for any teacher, this apple notepad is a sure way to impress any paper lover. Perfect for writing a quick note, they are so handy you can use them to jot down ideas or write out your to do list.

5. Personalized Travel Mug from Kathy & Kim Originals – $30

They turn sensible, everyday items into adorable, must-have gear. They offer eco friendly water bottles, bags and accessories that are all personalized with names, sayings and designs that your kids teacher will love! Each piece is custom designed – simply choose your favourite colours, fonts and designs.
