You finished all your Christmas shopping. Everything is wrapped and under the tree. The kids are excited, not only because Santa Clause is coming but because winter break is almost here. We all know what that means: two weeks of freedom — for the kids at least. As the days count down, that's when you realize you still need to get gifts for all your kid's teachers before they break for the holiday. Man, and you thought you were in the clear. If you've waited 'til the last minute too, here are some awesome last minute gifts for teachers that will put your own kid at the top of their favorite student list. They've been putting up with your kid all year, so they definitely deserve something great.
Even if it's with something small, like a cute plant, brand new planner for next year, or even just some chocolates you picked up at your local drug store, let them know that you appreciate them with these last minute gifts for teachers. Teachers are basically real-life superheroes. Not only are they molding the minds of our youth but they are putting up with our little buggers. Between Amazon's super speedy shipping, department stores, and even drug stores, you'll be sure to find a killer gift in no time. And if all else fails, you can always get the teacher an awesome online gift certificate that they would be more than enthusiastic to redeem.
Show your appreciation this holiday season by getting something special for the educators in your kid's life with these cool last minute gifts for teachers.
2Skincare For The Winter Cold
Your local drug store is bound to have a Burt's Bees section in the floor plan. It's one of the most affordable, quality beauty brands around with a ton of offerings. Get them a stock of their ever-popular chapstick, or gran an assortment to help them combat winter skin woes.
3A Hot Cocoa Mason Jar
8A Crayon Wreath
Can we say adorable? We love this crayon wreathe that any teacher would love to hang up in their classroom, or even in their own home. You can also make this yourself too. With some crayons and some cardboard, you could probably also make this yourself too if you're DIY savvy.
9A Salt Lamp
As with any job, the atmosphere can be stressful, especially when you have a bunch of screaming kids running around you. Salt Lamps are known to reduce anxiety and create a relaxing environment and that's what makes it a unique gift that any zen teacher will appreciate. If you can't get the lamp, a good alternative is a lava lamp which is available even in some drug stores. Watching the "lava" float and bubble is so soothing.
10A Donation In The Teacher's Name
There are always communities in need of assistance. Making a donation to the American Red Cross or other organization that is near and dear to the recipient's heart is a great gift that they'll be moved by and always remember.
13A Starbucks Gift Card
Starbucks gift cards always make a good gift. Even if the person doesn't like coffee they can always find something to satisfy their craving, like a yummy cake pop.
