As we round the corner on the last of our summer days, another school year approaches. From kindergarten to senior year, teachers across the country have already gotten back into the classroom and are working hard to make the upcoming school year successful. Why not let them feel appreciated from day one with an extra-special thank you teacher’s gift? Here are our four favorite ideas from SampleHouse:
From class notes to grocery lists and to-dos, these clever notepads are perfect for a purse of any size and make a great gifts for your favorite teacher. They even have a convenient place to keep a pen! Take a stack on the first day and set a few aside for the holidays—those notepads will come in handy year-round. Don’t forget to pick up a few colorful pens to match!
Even though teachers might seem like superheroes, they’re only human! And like the rest of us, they need plenty of coffee or tea to get going in the morning. SampleHouse has a huge selection of mugs of all sizes and styles, each one ready to hold your favorite teacher’s morning jet fuel of choice.
That desk of rich mahogany (or, y’know, laminate) needs to be protected, right? These gorgeous coasters each feature a beloved Dallas landmarks and will bring a little color and culture to the classroom all year. Plus they have a fun bonus function: get one of each for yourself and play a rousing game of Memory over cocktails with friends.
Yep, we saved the best for last! A slightly more tongue-in-cheek teacher’s gift option, the Dammit Doll is best teacher’s aide there is. Frustrated teachers can cuddle them, throw them at the wall or cry on their teeny little shoulders. Frazzled parents, pick up one for yourselves, while you’re at it. Need a buddy who will zip it when you’re talking? Dammit Doll. Need a confidant who won’t judge? Dammit Doll. Need to practice a little vengeful voodoo? Well—maybe don’t take that out on poor Dammit Doll!
