If there is any year to go above and beyond to thank our teachers, this is certainly it. As teachers play such an important role in helping grow and shape our children, it can be hard to find the perfect gift to thank them for the huge part they have in our kids’ lives.

Many teachers may have Amazon wishlists or other classroom supply lists you can shop. But they also deserve a little something for themselves, whether for Teacher Appreciation Week or as an end of the school year thank you. It’s no wonder so many of us opt to go the gift card route (after all, everyone loves cash, right?). There’s absolutely nothing wrong with sticking to a tried-and-true thank you like a gift card (some of our favorites for teachers include Target, Visa, Starbucks, and Doordash), but if you want to do something a little different this year, we have you covered.

We’ve rounded up 18 amazing teacher appreciation gifts that they’ll actually want—check out our picks below!
