Believe it or not, I am a preschool teacher! I also teach kindergarten (and am certified for older too!). I am technically a special education teacher -so, I am very passionate about helping you find great gift ideas for a preschool teacher! Teachers tend to get a lot of the same gifts.. I am hoping I bring a fresh memorable perspective. Also, it is always great to have your student make a nice card! I know I save all of my cards from students-they make great gifts! Of course, it is always appreciated to receive a nice gift too.
Gift Ideas for a Preschool Teacher
In my opinion the very best gift for a preschool teacher that you can get is a gift card to amazon or to a ‘big box store’ or a craft store. Teachers spend a lot of their own money on classroom supplies and the gift card will likely be used to help her spend less of her own money on classroom supplies. If it is not used on classroom supplies, she (or he!) will buy something she wants -so, it is a great way to really spoil a teacher. I usually order an amazon gift card and then send it via email to the teacher so that they can easily access the code when they are purchasing. The nice thing about a gift card is you can choose the amount you want to give. I have sent $10 cards, and a few for a bit more!
Other gift card ideas that I have done include Starbucks Coffee, Subway, or a gift card to go to the movies. These gift ideas for a preschool teacher are great because they allow the teacher to treat herself! I know I love to stop by Starbucks or grab lunch at Subway every so often and it is a treat when I do so… how nice it is if someone treats me with a gift card!
Finally, a new water bottle or coffee holder will make him smile. I thought the t-shirts were cute or the cute classroom rules photo was cute too! Classroom supplies always are great too! I like the counting bears and cups – every classroom needs a set of those! Again, I also like to just get a gift card so they can decide which supplies are best. Lastly, a nice bottle of wine is always nice too! What a great way to help the teacher relax -treat them to a drink!
Regardless of which of these gift ideas for a preschool teacher you choose, you are sure to make the teacher in your life smile. Here are a few examples of gift ideas for a preschool teacher that I thought a preschool teacher would love.
