I’m not entirely sure how this happened, but the end of the year is upon us! If you have kiddos in school, you know the fall semester is wrapping up and the end of school for the year is rapidly approaching. It has been quite a year (or two) for teachers, and the holidays are a great time to treat a weary teacher to something special. While you can’t give them what they really want (a higher salary, smaller class size, or an end to the pandemic, to name a few), we have some lovely and useful gift options here at the store that would be a nice treat for your kiddo’s favorite teachers.
Let’s start with reusable bags! Even in these days with lots of digital learning, teachers have a lot of stuff to haul around. A beautiful and thoughtful solution to this problem is Baggu reusable bags. Baggu bags come in two sizes, baby and standard, and each bag can fold up into its own small, flat pouch. The standard size reusable bags can carry 2-3 plastic grocery bags worth of stuff, while the baby Baggu is perfect for carrying smaller things like a lunch or an extra pair of shoes. The best part about Baggu bags, though, are their beautiful prints! We have some gorgeous and festive options in the shop right now, like the Madras Metallic reusable bag and the Blue Red Buffalo Check reusable bag, pictured below in the standard size.
Many teachers pack their lunch everyday, so why not give a teacher something to help make lunch a little easier and more fun? Enter Stasher bags! Stasher bags are made of endlessly reusable food grade silicone and come in a variety of lovely colors and three perfect sizes – snack, sandwich (pictured below), and stand up mid bags. These bags are microwave, dishwasher, and oven safe, and they are leak proof, making them perfect to throw in a bag or lunch box. Plus, you can label the bags with a non-toxic chalk or dry erase marker (you know teachers love a label!). These bags make a handy, eco-friendly gift that can be used over and over again. Toss some homemade cookies in a snack or sandwich sized Stasher bag to make your gift extra special!
Mugs are very popular teacher gifts, but many teachers can have one too many mugs, many festooned with apples or pencils. A more useful alternative to a traditional mug is a to go cup, like the Terrazzo Porter mugs. These mugs are colorful and stylish, as well as dishwasher and microwave safe. They fit in most car cup holders and are splash resistant, making them a great option for taking into school in the morning. The new mint green mug is so lovely and fun, while the charcoal Porter mug is a classic, gender neutral option. We also have a variety of Corkcicle drinkware products available in our store that will keep a teacher’s coffee piping hot for hours.
Finally, there’s one more gift that could work for any teacher (or person) on your list – a Personify gift card! You can decide the amount and then either pick up a card in our store or order one online. Online gift cards are delivered straight to an email address with instructions on how to redeem the gift card at checkout. Either option is a low stress way to give a great and thoughtful teacher gift. With a gift card, your kiddo’s teacher can find something that will truly love.
