It’s the end of the school year and time to find a thoughtful and personal present to show that
great teacher how much she was appreciated for her hard work and efforts. Read on for some
personalized gift ideas that teachers will love.
Get a Trophy for a Good Teacher
Trophy shops in town and online have a great variety of trophies to choose from that can be
dedicated to that wonderful teacher in one’s life or the life of one’s child. Have it engraved with
messages such as “Teacher of the Year” or “Top Teacher Ms. *****.” Shops that specialize in
making trophies also usually offer a range of other related items like commemorative plaques
and medals. Choose a plaque for that great teacher and have a more detailed message outlining
her great deeds and achievements as a teacher over the year.
Get a Personalized Sign for an Instructor
Another idea is to get a sign for the teacher’s door or room with their name on it. Getting
something simple is best as teacher’s can sometimes change what grades they teach, so examples
include “Mr. Brown” or “Ms. Smith’s Art Room.” The sign can be specially made at a sign
company to going to a store that specialized in woodcutting and getting either wood letters to
spell out the teacher’s name or a wooden plaque with her name engraved in it.
So many things can be engraved these days, from jewelry to wine glasses. One idea is to get a frame engraved with a special message for the teacher and choose either a photo of one’s child
with the teacher, the teacher on her own or with the whole class. Another idea is to get a glass or
metal apple paperweight and have it engraved with a special message for the teacher. A mug or
drinking glass for the teacher with her name is also a thoughtful and useful gift.
Personalized Clothes and Accessories for Teacher
Nowadays names and personal messages can be sewn into or printed on to a variety of clothes
and accessories. T-shirts, aprons, hats, bags and even shoes can be personalized with a message
and/or a photo. Make the gift specific to the teacher, for example, get a tie for the band teacher
that says “Mr. Green, Band Teacher Extraordinaire ” or “Mr. Green the Music Man!” Another
option is to get a belt buckle with the teacher’s name or initial, for example, “Mr. G.”
Get something special and personal for that teacher who has made the year so memorable. Some
ideas for personalized gifts for teacher include a trophy for being a great teacher, a sign for
teacher’s door, something engraved like a photo album or memento, or personalized clothing or
