I know I said skip the #1 teacher mug, but a travel mug that keeps your coffee or tea hot is invaluable as it might sit there most of the day.

It’s time to look ahead to the new year. How about a planner? I’m a huge fan of the Erin Condren teacher planner? You can choose from so many colorful designs.
Still not sure what teachers really want? Let them pick something themselves! My top choices for gift cards? Teacher Pay Teachers and Amazon.
Teachers pay Teachers have gift cards from as little as $5.00 and right up to $500.00. If you’re thinking that you want something teachers can use for themselves, not the classroom, let me assure you that gaining back some time by getting materials ready to use is a huge gift.
Amazon gift cards are a great choice because there are just so many options, and it lets teachers get something for themselves or the classroom.
Whatever you choose, a personal note included is sure to brighten a teacher’s day.
