Educators have a lasting impact on our lives, so offering a great teacher some classroom gifts is a meaningful way to celebrate World Teachers Day on October 5th. The workload, pay, and environment can be challenging. But many teachers still help students achieve academic success. We have custom, school-friendly products to show appreciation for attentive, caring, and exceptional teachers.

Spruce up the teacher’s classroom with small, personalized décor

Teachers spend plenty of time behind a desk, where they keep many essentials, from paperwork to coffee. But a custom gift for their desk can be a motivational reminder that the students and their parents genuinely care.

Our themed great teacher picture frame lists a variety of key qualities that make some educators truly special.

Crafted from Red Alder wood, you can customize the first line of the frame with the teacher’s name. With the second, you can add the grade and school, or a personal message. For example, you could mention that the gift is from the entire class, to include everyone.

Our wood apple sign is also ideal for their desk. While apples might seem considerably old-fashioned, they do remain a wholesome symbol of appreciation.

These custom wood signs are conveniently sized at just 5" x 4 1/2". The material is eco-friendly, and you can have them laser engraved with the teacher’s name. The freestanding design looks tidy, and the arithmetic theme is both clever and unique.

Similarly, you might consider our cutout apple door sign. Teachers will be able to decorate the door to the classroom or their personal office with these custom wood signs.

This classy door sign hangs via twine, and the natural textures are sure to complement the students’ desks. However, it is more of an obligation, so you might ask about this beforehand.

Discover our affordable teacher appreciation gifts for home

Teachers may need to keep their morning coffee warm, or stay hydrated with cool water throughout the day. Consider our school essentials tumbler, which features a double-wall vacuum insulated design and artwork of school supplies.

This adorable tumbler includes a silicone straw, to avoid spills in a workplace environment with younger students. But this gesture can also be enjoyed at home.

The Holidays are quickly approaching, so a personalized ornament might be suitable for some teachers. We offer an apple and ruler ornament, which boasts the same eco-friendly wood as our bamboo signs.

This ornament can be laser engraved with the teacher’s name, the year, and the sender. It’s also consistent with our other apple-themed gifts above. So, they could easily be bundled together as a collective gift from the kids or parents.

Reward professors with gifts that are equally formal and personal

Seeking an appropriate gift for a college or university professor may need to feel less casual. Without losing the personal touch, we offer a variety of custom desk name plates. Our engraved glass name plates have a sleek, neutral design that will fit most settings and professions.

These custom name plates are glass, which can avoid creating visual clutter. And because they’re freestanding, they could potentially double as paperweights.

But perhaps you’d prefer something less noticeable. Our engraved pen set is stylish, and the professor wouldn’t need to display anything in their personal office. Additionally, it’d be practical for grading and other busywork.

The United Nations has recognized World Teachers’ Day for decades. Each year has a unique theme, and UNESCO’s official site explains that 2023 concentrates on reversing the teacher shortage. These ambitious goals often triumph with the support of everyday people. So, investing in your teachers, as they invest in their students, could legitimately make a difference.
