Ok, so you probably can’t bribe your kids’ teachers to give them better grades, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t show appreciation to the people responsible for educating the next generation of young minds.

Your children spend almost as much time with their teachers as they do with you, so they’ll know best what he or she would be interested in. Then again, kids are selfish little people (it’s ok, they’re supposed to be at that age) so here are our recommendations for presents that will make you the teacher’s pet at the next PTA meeting. 

A big ol’ box of pens

So they never get bored grading papers.

Bath & body essentials

No one deserves to be pampered more than teachers.

A Godiva gift box

Teaching is like a box of chocolates — you never know which problem students you’re gonna get. 

A cute designer travel mug

For tea, coffee, or something a little stronger.

I ❤️️ snow days T-shirt

FYI: your kids’ teachers hope for snow days more than they do.

A beautiful hardcover classic

Even if they don’t read it, it’ll look classy on their shelves.

10 fizzy bath bombs

This gift set is 50% off, which is just an excuse to get one for yourself, too.

You can say it’s healthy, but it’s still candy.

Some fancy candles

Just make sure they don’t let your kids play with matches.

A teacher can never have too many notebooks.

A mug that says it all

Take the direct approach.

That viral “F in Exams” book

They’ll appreciate that at least your kids aren’t that bad.

A math equations tie

Maybe not ideal for an English teacher, but a Math teacher will flip for it.

A practical pencil case

Does anyone still use composition books?

Planters with peepers

She’s got eyes in the back of her head and on her plants.

A trip to the movies

Bonus points if you pay for the snacks too.

T-shirts for their off hours

No one wants to take their job home with them.

Personalized post-its

So at least those notes you get sent home will be from the heart.

An adorable desk cleaner

Because you know your kids get crumbs everywhere.

An avocado eraser and pencil sharpener

For the millennial teacher (because that’s a thing now.)

A NSFW activity book

Sometimes a good f-bomb is the best stress reliever.
