20+ Last-Minute Teacher Gifts They Will Actually Love

Written by Erin Feher

The countdown is officially on. And while the kids know exactly how many days (and maybe even hours) until summer break begins, you better believe all those hardworking teachers have their eyes on the finish line, as well. Don’t let the last day go by without showing your child’s teacher how much the whole family appreciates their dedication, hard work, and infinite patience. That said, all teacher gifts aren’t created equal, so we tapped a few educators to clue us in on what they really want. The clear winner? Cash. The world would be a much better place if teachers were paid hefty salaries, but that’s almost never the case. So, cash is a sincere show of appreciation that they can actually use, and use exactly how they want (or need). Less favorite? Large gift cards to stores they don’t frequent, or places far from their home. Most teachers love a good massage or a nice meal out, but it’s better to do a little research and pick a place that’s convenient for them. Click through the full slideshow below for more than 20 teacher-approved gifts for the last day of school.
