Teacher Appreciation Gifts to Brighten your Teacher's Day.

Teacher Appreciation Week happens every year in May and, when it comes to teachers, we sure do have a lot to appreciate!

Teachers are endlessly caring, compassionate, and patient with our little learners. On top of lesson planning, grading, and teaching, they also develop relationships, encourage, and offer advice every day. No wonder teachers have such a big impact on so many lives.

Of course, teachers deserve to be appreciated all year long, not just during this one week. But Teacher Appreciation Week is a great time to be reminded of all we owe to the teachers in our lives and the lives of our children. 

And, to celebrate, we’ve put together a list of suggestions that we think your favorite teachers will absolutely love. Check it out below and have fun choosing the perfect gift. Then write a thoughtful note and let your teachers know how much you appreciate all that they do!

1) Paper White Letters

This set of white letters is simple, elegant, and classic. It can be paired with our magnetic letter boards or used on other magnetic surfaces.


2) 12x12 Black Chalkboard

Our 12x12 letter boards are the perfect size for a teacher's desk, a classroom shelf, or home use. They have just enough space to display a short quote, some inspirational words, or even vocabulary words. 

3) 15x15 Noteboard Slate


With a design that’s reminiscent of school days where everything was written by hand and in notebooks, our notebard slate is on-theme! Teachers will love creating designs on it using magnets or dry erase markers.


4) Rainbow Prep Letters

March your teacher’s colorful personality with these colorful letters from our rainbow collection. We love how much fun they bring to any space!

5) Rikagaku Art Chalk

Did you know that our chalkboard letter boards can actually be used with chalk? We love this beautiful chalk set for smoothly writing words or doodling designs.

6) Rainbow Pop (1” and 2”)

Our Rainbow Pop letters come in both 1-inch and 2-inch sizes for double the design fun! Combine these packs together or use them separately. 2-inch letters are particularly great for small hands but will be loved by all ages.


7) Magnetic Emojis

Magnetic emojis are a fun way to spice up your magnetic letter designs… but they’re also a great way to help students develop emotional awareness. We know your teacher will find so many creative uses for them!

Pair your gift with this "More than a teacher" card to show them just how much they really do. And these Funny Teacher Cards will make any teacher with an irreverent sense of humor laugh out loud.

This Teacher Life Mug makes us laugh and would look great sitting on any teacher's desk. Plus, it can hold caffeinated drinks. Need we say more?

This Custom Lesson Planner by Erin Condren is the best kind of gift… stylish and practical.

A little add-on gift that would look cute on a classroom shelf is this 'Thank you for helping me grow' planter. Or, if you’re looking to bring a smile to a teacher’s face, we think this "Teachers last nerve. Oh look. its on fire" candle is sure to do just tha
