Teacher Gift Ideas: Giving Back to Your Child’s Role Models

Posted on August 28, 2018 by Katie Schmidt | 0 comments

Teachers are a big part of our children’s lives. They spend a significant amount of time with students, shaping their education and even serving as role models. A good teacher can make all the difference, inspiring a lifelong interest in math, reading, science, or learning in general. Whether it’s at the beginning of the school year or after a parent-teacher conference, go the extra mile to build a relationship with your child’s teacher. Passion Lilie has several teacher gift ideas to help you show your appreciation.

Check out our teacher gift ideas, such as these recycled greeting cards from Passion Lilie, to help show your appreciation to your child's teacher today.

Teacher Gift Ideas and Tips

Choosing a gift for a teacher can be tough. You want to show your gratitude, but in many cases you need to be careful not to overspend—otherwise, the teacher may not be able to accept your gift. Follow these tips when considering teacher gift ideas:

  • Give something practical. Most teachers have more than enough coffee mugs, but they end up paying for school supplies out of pocket. Many of the best teacher gifts are ones they can actually use to improve their classrooms.
  • Put thought into your gift. Even the cutest knickknack doesn’t say much if there isn’t a story behind it. Consider the teacher’s personality and interests when shopping.
  • Don’t spend more than $20. Several teachers surveyed in different parts of the U.S. said that $20 should be your limit. A few bucks over won’t hurt, but don’t spend much more than that.

Show Your Appreciation with These Teacher Gift Ideas

Now that you know what to look for in a gift, consider these teacher gift ideas from Passion Lilie.

Butterfly Greeting Card ($3.00)

Passion Lilie's Butterfly Greeting Card, pictured here, is one of our favorite low-cost teacher gift ideas.

Passion Lilie sells a variety of recycled greeting cards that are perfect for thanking a teacher on any occasion. Add it to the rest of your gift, or fill it with thoughtful words from yourself and your child to make a perfect, low-cost gift all on its own. Even better, these cards are made of recycled (and cleaned!) elephant waste, making them eco-friendly and part of an important cause: improving the treatment of elephants in Sri Lanka. If that weren’t enough, each card is hand block printed by a young adult with autism or a severe handicap in India, and the proceeds help pay for their education and ongoing training.

Le Plume Tote ($20.00)

Give your child's teacher a hand with this Le Plume Tote from Passion Lilie.

Between all the folders, worksheets, school supplies, and other miscellaneous items, teachers end up carrying a lot of things from work to home and back. Wouldn’t it be nice if each time they reached for their bag, they were reminded of a student or parent who cared? This tote is colorful and attractive, while its measurements are large enough to fit standard papers and folders. It can also function as a reusable grocery bag for environmentally friendly teachers on the go.

Mint Paisley Scarf ($22.00)

Many teachers are more concerned with helping others than themselves, so consider teacher gift ideas that are a treat just for them, such as this Mint Paisley Scarf from Passion Lilie.

Many teachers are more concerned with helping others than themselves. Treat them to something just for themselves: a bright, beautiful, lightweight scarf. With its refreshing mint color and gorgeous mixed patterns, the Mint Paisley Scarf is a great way to give a little TLC to a teacher.
