10 easy end-of-year teacher gift ideas

As a former teacher, I can honestly say that most teachers love gift cards. A gift card allows the teacher to buy whatever they want. There are also easy gifts for teachers that don’t require much preparation.

Amazon Gift Card – You can print one directly online.

A gift certificate to their favorite local restaurant.

“Thank you for helping me grow!” – a gift card for a garden centre, a potted plant or a bouquet of flowers.

“I have nothing to do with you as a teacher!” – a bottle of wine (if allowed).

“MANI thank you for an awesome year” – a Mani/Pedi gift certificate.

“Thanks a Latte” – a certificate to a local coffee shop OR Dunkin’s/Starbucks.

“Thank you for the POPPIN school year!” – cinema tickets.

“This year was SCENTsational!” – offer a candle.

“We appreciate you a BUNCH, so enjoy LUNCH on us!” – UberEats or Door Dash gift card.

“I DON’T KNOW what I would do without you!” – gift card for breakfast OR donut.

If you don’t know teachers’ favorite places, stick to a universally loved gift card: Visa!
