Straight Outta Summer: Teacher Gifts That Make The Grade!

Straight Outta Summer: Teacher Gifts That Make The Grade!

It seems like just yesterday we celebrated the last day of school. And, yet here we are trying to soak up those last carefree days of summer while wishing time could stand still just a bit longer. Because, before we know it, we will all be in GO MODE. 

You know: morning madness, homework hassles, traffic jams, crazy schedules—and that’s just what awaits the parents. 

As for teachers, well, they’re most likely in GO MODE prepping their classroom and stocking up on supplies while trying to master Lesson Plan Palooza. It’s no easy feat and that’s before the students even arrive. If you’re looking to show your teachers some love this year, check out these simple gift ideas that go beyond the apple yet won’t break your budget.

 

1. Jenessa Wait Remember to Be Kind 8″ x 10″ Print

A beautiful hand-lettered print that says: Remember to be kind to yourself in the becoming, to champion every step of victory & embrace the moment you are in now. 

To make it even better (kind of like extra credit), throw in the magnetic wood banner frame so they can easily display it for all to see. 

Why they’ll love it:

Teachers have endless responsibilities and that’s in addition to the added pressure that they put on themselves. 

Why it matters:

A portion of Jenessa Wait Co. proceeds is given to missionaries around the globe to help take the gospel to the ends of the earth!

Starting at just $4 each these lip balms really are the bomb. That’s because Kind Lips’ natural and organic lip balm leaves your lips nourished and protected while reminding you to choose kind words. For mega brownie points, add in the MISSIO Deluxe Styling Set and let your teacher feel pampered. 

Why they’ll love it: 

Every ingredient is sustainably sourced, gluten-free, and USDA Organic Certified. And, as Kind Lips says, because being kind to our planet is just as important as being kind to each other the tubes are recyclable.

Why it matters:

Kind Lips donates 20% of every product purchased to anti-bullying organizations that are devoted to promoting kindness and creating a world without bullying.

A set of four lined journals that are perfect for writing notes and reminders on the go since they are small and compact and stash easily into bags, desk drawers, and more. That said, you may want to add in a You’re the Best card too. 

Why they’ll love it:

We think just remembering the names of all of the students in all of their classrooms would be hard. However, add to that keeping their classroom the stellar learning space it is, teachers also must go home and adult some more. Talk about a rock star. 

Why it matters: 

Joy Paper Co. donates a portion of its proceeds to support mental health research and awareness. Every product they sell is also manufactured here in the USA in an effort to support fellow US-based businesses.

With spicy flavors of cinnamon and hazelnut blend for a smooth aromatic coffee that’s reminiscent of your mom’s cookies!

Why they’ll love it:

A curated set of biblically-based, Christian prayers specifically written to claim biblical truths over your life. These 20 interchangeable prayer cards feature beautiful typography and come with a handcrafted wooden block to display as a reminder to pray every day.

Why they’ll love it: 

With prayers for everything from Growth In Christ, Contentment, Joy, Compassion, Integrity, Communication, Wisdom, Peace, A Servant’s Heart, and more, couldn’t we all use a reminder to pray every day? 

Why it matters: 

Backgate Prayers supports Stanton Healthcare, an organization that offers life-affirming solutions and resources for women experiencing an unexpected pregnancy. They aim to provide hope to those struggling from the pain of a past abortion; and share the message of sexual integrity in a confidential and professional environment that promotes physical, emotional, and spiritual wellness.

It’s like a budget planner that helps with finance planning, setting financial goals, monthly budgeting, expense tracking, and monthly reviewing.  Plus, the #ThisIsMyEra planner is dateless, so they can start any time- like at the beginning of the calendar year, the school year, or tomorrow. For extra points, add in the 90-Day Planner

Why they’ll love it: 

This planner is the product of hundreds of hours of research in partnership with experts, entrepreneurs, and business leaders. It’s designed to help break bad spending habits and stay goal-focused.

This stainless steel, double-sided necklace is hypoallergenic; lead and cadmium free. It features unity on the front and a map of the world on the back. To really set the bar, add in the Inspired Multi-Colored Bracelet.

Why they’ll love it:  

Nelson Mandala said, “For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.” May the engraved world map within the stainless steel Unity Pendant be a simple reminder of the power you hold to advocate for the freedom of others around the globe. 

Why it matters: 

Starfish Project is a social enterprise with a holistic care program that cares for women escaping human trafficking and exploitation in Asia.

They have employed and trained over 160 women and served thousands more through their community outreach.

This high-quality notebook doesn’t just look professional, it’s got all of the bells and whistles a teacher needs (like a lay-flat design and 185 numbered pages) to stay organized. Be the teacher’s pet and add in the Not Today Satan notepad.  

Why they’ll love it: 

This elegant notebook features a flexible soft cover, expandable interior pocket, bookmark, elastic enclosure band, and a page of stickers for archival and labeling of the spine or front cover.

Why it matters: 

Double Edged Notes creates high-quality, beautiful journals to read, record, reflect, and remember. For every journal purchased, they print and distribute a Bible to a country that’s closed to the Gospel.

Like a summer getaway filled with endless blue skies, radiant sunshine, warm sand between your toes, and a sweet tropical drink in your hand. Smells like fresh pineapple, vanilla creme, and driftwood.

Why they’ll love it:

This limited-time candle helps keep the summer vibes going through finals. Made of American-grown soy wax it’s vegan, non-toxic, cruelty-free, and paraben-free. It’s a better candle with Phthalate-free fragrance that’s infused with essential oils.
