It's the season of gift giving and we're back with on of our annual posts: Our Favorite Things! You can use our list for classroom teachers, librarians and other specials teachers, or anyone else in your life! Some of the ideas here would even be great gifts from the whole class.
Most importantly, we hope you enjoy the season!
Corey's Favorite Things
This gift has made our list before: a Passion Planner. Throw in a set of pens and some fun washi tape and you've got a gift that will bring a little happy organization each and every day of the year. $17-$35.
One of my favorite places to buy gifts is Red Truck Bakery. From granola to cakes to cookbooks, they have something to satisfy every sweet tooth and you can ship to anywhere in the country. Costs vary.
These slippers are the perfect way for a teacher to end the day. Snuggly. Comfy. And the price is right at $35.
I love these little monogrammed trinket dishes by Anthropologie. A perfect place to stash earrings or other jewelry. And the best part is the pricetag: $14.
If you are wanting to splurge or if you buy a class gift with several parents, consider gifting allbirds shoes with a giftcard. I just bought myself a pair and I literally feel like I am walking on air. They are comfy, stylish and made from sustainable materials -- the perfect gift for teachers who are on their feet all day. Trust me on this one. Another option along this vein is Rothy's. I don't own a pair, but have heard plenty of teachers rave about these washable shoes that come in a variety of styles. $95-$125
Gretchen's Favorite Things
The Sketchbook Project from the Brooklyn Art Library is such a neat gift for an aspiring artist. Order an official sketchbook, fill it in with art, send it back to the Brooklyn Art Library -- even opt for digitization -- and it will be added to their collection. The artist will be able to track where their book goes and how often it is viewed. This would be a great whole class gift -- every student could contribute to the sketchbook, and the teacher could catalog it in her name. $30-$60.
I simply cannot get enough of these sweet ceramic cups. Personalized with an initial and complete with a silicon lid to minimize spillage, this would be a thoughtful and inexpensive gift for a teacher, a librarian, or anyone else in your life! $7.
Games are a fun holiday gift for families and also good for many classrooms! A few games that we like to play in our are: Rat-a-Tat Cat, Blink, Too Many Monkeys, Dragonwood, Bounce Off and Yamslam. $10-20.
How cute are these plastic free produce bags? A great way to help the environment and to produce (heh) a smile each time your gift recipient hits the grocery store. You could even fill them with some seasonal fruit (mmm...pomegranate)! For something simpler, try these mesh bags. $7-$15.
Maybe it’s because there is the scent of snow in the air, but I think that a cozy throw is always a nice present. This year, I’m drawn to those with fringe, like this rust-colored one or this striped one or this graphic green one. You could even add other items (a candle, warm socks, hot cocoa) to create a Hygge gift basket! $20-$50
