Your child’s teacher is so much more than an educator (although that’s also equally important). They offer scholarly support, big bear hugs when your kiddo needs one, and are an educational advocate for your child. That’s why teachers deserve our thanks — and a present wouldn’t necessarily hurt. And these last-minute Teacher Appreciation Week gifts from Amazon will definitely make them feel appreciated — and woot, they’ll arrive just in time, too.
A Cute Mug For Her Morning Cup of Joe
If their love of teaching isn’t motivation enough, the teacher mug from Amazon (filled with coffee or tea) should get them through those morning lessons. The pink marble design will look pretty on your teacher’s desk, and the added gold flecks will sparkle, just like they do. ($18.87)
A Gift Card So They Can Get Whatever They Want
You’d like to buy something for your child’s teacher, but really, it can be hard to know what their interests are after 3:00 p.m. So stop guessing and give them an Amazon gift card. It’s an easy gift; just pick out a dollar amount, and include their email address and voila, they’ll receive an email alerting them that they now can get the things in their Amazon cart, thanks to you and your child.
