Teacher gift cards are always appreciated!

Over the years, we’ve had many teachers (who are also Hip2Save readers) comment they appreciate any gesture. Gift cards make such great gifts for teachers because they can treat themselves to anything.

Whether it’s a coffee, lunch, or perhaps a mini shopping spree with a Target gift card, they’ll love it. If you happen to know their favorites, you can even customize your gift card selection personally!

Embellishing a DIY gift card holder can be a fun activity the kids can help with!

By the end of the year, my kids usually know which stores and food their teachers enjoy and that’s where we come up with teacher gift card ideas. For instance, we have one teacher who’s obsessed with Starbucks, one who loves to read (Barnes & Noble, here we come), and another who loves Chipotle. If you’re not sure, there’s no harm in sending a quick email to ask!

As a former homeroom parent, I recommend sending something similar to this TEACHER FAVORITES questionnaire to my teachers. It was very helpful during Teacher Appreciation Week to know what each enjoyed!
