6 teacher gifts they'll use year after year

When the final bell rings to mark the end of the school year, your child's teacher will have spent nine months shaping and molding the next generation of smart and successful students. It’s the perfect opportunity to show that teacher just how much you value the time spent with your child! Choose a thoughtful gift that each of the amazing teachers in your child's life will love to use year after year. Here are some ideas to get you started!

1. For the teacher who could use some spoiling
An All-In Organizer is a great gift on its own and even better when you make it really hers. Stuff it with nice lotions or soap, or opt for some chocolates or homemade goodies. Another idea: Add an Apple Icon-It and personalize with text reading “Apple for the Teacher.” Then fill it with fresh fruit for a fresh start to her summer!

2. For the teacher who brings his lunch to school
Move your teacher to the head of the class…err, the teachers' lounge with a personalized thermal that will keep his lunch cool and contained. Thirty-One offers a variety of insulated lunch bag styles for a variety of different tastes, including the Thermal Tote, Lunch Break Thermal, Cool Clip Thermal Pouch and new Crossbody Thermal Tote. To gift it, fill the thermal of your choice with snacks to enjoy throughout the summer, and make it extra special by personalizing it with the teacher's monogram.

3. For the teacher who buys her own school supplies
Show her how much you appreciated her this school year by making her next one a little easier. Fill a Littles Carry-All Caddy with a selection of supplies that she uses in the classroom every day, like pens, pencils and highlighters. A Double Duty Caddy will hold even larger items, like notebooks. Have it embroidered with “School Supplies” to make it desk-ready!

4. For the teacher who’s especially kind and caring
Help the teacher help his students! A Mini Catch-All Bin or a Mini Storage Bin is just right for storing all of those little must-haves in every classroom, like tissues, hand sanitizer or even crayons! Add a Hashtag Icon-It followed by the name of the school mascot to spread some school spirit at the same time.

5. For the teacher who needs some pampering
Indulge a favourite teacher! Even after you fill up a Mini Zipper Pouch or Clear Zipper Pouch with lip balm, a pack of gum and a gift card to the nearest coffee shop, she'll still have room for her phone. The Mini Zipper Pouch can even be personalized with her monogram or an Icon-It that fits her personality. Choose a classic Apple or Reading book, a Music Note for that beloved choir or band director or Running Shoes for a phys. ed. instructor.

6. For the teacher who’s ready to decompress
Give your teachers the relaxing summer break they deserve! A Summer Fun Caddy is a must for anyone eager to hit the beach with their family. They'll be ready to put their feet in the surf when you fill it with sunscreen, sand toys and a sporty water bottle.
