The Everymom’s gift guide is curated by our editorial team with some items hand-picked by editors from our sponsors. If you buy something through our links, we may earn an affiliate commission, at no cost to you. As always, we only choose items we genuinely love, use, have purchased ourselves, or recommend.
Sometimes no gift seems like enough to show appreciation for those who care for the ones we love. When you want to give a gift to thank your child’s teacher, a tangible item can sometimes feel more personal than a gift card (though no harm in throwing in one of those as well!). Read on for our favorite picks for educators—whether it be your child’s teacher or just a loved one who teaches in your life—including everything from the practical to the personalized, and even a couple of fun treats to help celebrate the end of the year.
If you’re looking to be dubbed “Queen of Gift Giving” this year, we’ve got you. More gifts can be found on our full holiday gift guide. You’ll find ideas for everyone on your list!
