This Is My Go-To Teacher Gift For The Holidays

Around this time of year, most of us are frantically buying presents for a ton of different people. And if you're a parent, that list includes teachers. And for whatever reason, teacher gifts can be easy to forget. (Maybe because you have to give them a little early?) I used to get all the way to the day before winter break and realize I had forgotten to pick something up as I was getting the kids ready for school. I'd frantically write out a note, haul the kids to a local store to buy a gift card, and then assemble it all right before walking into school. And I mean, that's..fine. But ideally, I want to put a little more thought into it! So, now I do by having a go-to gift ready. It makes the process so much easier--and the teachers love it!

For each teacher, I now typically do a combo holiday present of a little beauty gift set and then also a small gift card. (And for the gift card, I almost always do Starbucks.) The beauty part is the fun, indulgent, pampering part (everyone loves a beauty gift). The coffee card is almost a necessity. I know from experience that taking care of kids--at least mine--requires a healthy dose of caffeine. ;)

Then, I wrap them up with a pretty bow, write a heartfelt card, and boom--I'm done. Everyone is happy. (And a little bit prettier and a lot more awake!)

This year, I ended up grabbing my gifts at BJ's Wholesale Club, where they had tons of great, affordable options, not just for teachers, but for everyone on your list. While there, I grabbed an adorable gift set from Soho with four makeup brushes and a super cute tumbler. (This would also be amazing present for a teen, a niece, a babysitter, etc.) I also bought a pack of eight Burt's Bees lip balms, because please show me someone who does not love--and need--lip balm. (They even have Starbucks gift cards at BJ's! Just saying...)

Other great, affordable options that I noticed (all under $20!): a four-piece set of Soho cosmetic bags, an Axe men's set, and a Paw Patrol bath set that my son would love. (And yes, I may have stealthily placed some of my favorites under an in-store Christmas tree display! #diditforthegram)

What are you guys doing for teacher's gifts this year?

It’s a great idea to buy gifts this way. Also, I had to laugh a little as I saw the paw patrol shampoo in your cart because we pretty much always have those in the tub too. My kids are still playing with the empty bottles.

Christa Anne said...

That’s such a great idea! I love combining something pampering with something practical. BJs is a great place to shop!

Oh what fantastic way to say thank you to a teacher. I love the beauty gift idea so they can also have a little bit of pampering.

I love the tumbler!

Oh, and that stash of lip balms will probably last a lifetime!

Linh Nguyen said...

I love Burt's Bee products and would love this for myself. Ha! Such great gifts for teacher and really any woman.

That is a great gift idea for the teachers! I usually just get my kids teachers a Dunkin Donuts gift card.

Alli Smith said...

What a great gift idea for teachers! My kids are all grown now but I remember those years I'd wait until the last minute and have to scramble to find a gift.

Karen said...

As a teacher, I fully support this gift idea. I know it's definitely something I'd love to receive.

What great gift options. I usually do chocolate and gift cards! I've always liked BJ's!

Stockpiling Mom said...

Both of these are great gift ideas for teachers! I know they would love either! Shopping at BJ's is great because it is a one stop shop!

Purchasing in bulk for anything you really use is perfect. I always did this and still do as much as possible.

Jeannette said...

I really have been at a loss of what I want to get my sons teacher. This helps a lot. These are some great ideas.

Bj's is one of my favorite stores. They always have the best gift ideas. Love the pink makeup brush set.

Sarah-Louise Bailey said...

These are some great sounding ideas for teachers. It can be hard to know what to get someone who helps in such a way I am sure.

I am not a BJs member but it seems like such a great store and the gifts you chose were so nice. I will look for some of these where I shop.

We are a BJ Member for years now we love this wholesale store . We go there at least ones a week they always have a good deal almost in everything.

Jenn @ ENgineerMommy said...

Yes, I do similar gifts for my kids' teachers. BJ's is a great one-stop shop for doing so much of my weekly shopping!

Dennis Littley said...

Great gift idea especially with the Starbucks card. There's something for almost everyone at Starbucks! It's a nice gesture to include teachers this time of year. They deserve it.

The Super Mom Life said...

I love that set! Perfect! I've been racking my brain trying to figure out what to get the teachers.

gladys nava said...
