Five A+ Teacher Gifts during COVID

23 Apr

The last school year has been challenging as teachers had to navigate teaching either in-person, online or a hybrid.  Teacher Appreciation Week is May 3 – 7 this year.  While your child may not see their teacher(s) in person, you can still get them a gift for Teacher Appreciation Week or for the end of the school year.  If your child’s schedule is fully remote, you can arrange a time to drop off the gift(s) at the school and always follow up by email to ensure they received it.

What should I get as a gift?

Showing your appreciation can mean something as simple and meaningful as a handwritten thank you note from your child to their teacher.  You may also consider having the entire classroom donate towards a bigger gift from the class.  Here are a five of our favorite teacher gift ideas to inspire you:

Apple and Pencil Border Post-It Pack

No matter in-person or online, every teacher could use his/her own set of personalized Post-it® notes.  The Apple and Pencil Border Post-it® Pack has an optional holder so it can sit nicely on their desk and makes it easy to jot down notes for themselves, their students or parents.

Teachers are Virtually Unstoppable Chunky Notepad

Have a little fun with a gift that takes the year into account with the Teachers are Virtually Unstoppable Chunky Notepad.  Perfect for jotting down notes during class or at home.

Nantucket Deluxe Tote Bag with Kelly Green Trim

The personalized Nantucket Deluxe Tote Bag is perfect for carrying assignments, grade books, lunch, etc.  In the summer it serves a dual purpose as a beach/pool tote to enjoy their time off!

#1 Teacher Personalized Tervis Water Bottle

Show your teacher their #1 with the #1 Teacher Personalized Tervis Water Bottle.  Easy to take on-the-go, every teacher needs to stay hydrated during the day, so why not give them something that’s memorable and practical?

 

Alphabet Teacher Folded Note Cards

Something a teacher always needs is personalized note cards.  These Alphabet Teacher Folded Note Cards are perfect for writing thank you notes for all their gifts, personal notes to students and classroom volunteers.

With the school year almost over, start planning your teacher gift(s) now so they know just how much you’ve appreciated them during this difficult school year!

Last year when the pandemic hit, The Stationery Studio wanted to find a way to help those hit hardest by the virus.  We were proud to support the Feeding America COVID-19 Response Fund during critical times in 2020.  With your help, we were able to donate over 400,000 meals to those in need.

“We all know someone who’s been affected by the pandemic,” said Renee Redman, founder of The Stationery Studio. “We wanted to help give back during this difficult time and the Feeding America COVID-19 Response Fund was the perfect way for us to help.”  

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, Feeding America is committed to serving communities and individuals facing hunger across America, wherever they are. Every dollar raised from the COVID-19 Response Fund will be used to get food and funds to local food banks across the U.S.

As Covid continues to impact so many people, we are thrilled to continue our support of Feeding America.  The Stationery Studio will donate $1 for every product sold from April 1 – June 30, 2021.  We love supporting our communities and are compassionate about giving back. The Stationery Studio has helped with various charities including Giving Tuesday, Living Beyond Breast Cancer, One Warm Coat, Red Nose Day, Vernon Township Food Pantry and others.  To learn more about the charities The Stationery Studio has helped support, click here.
