Back to School: Teacher Gifts

Wednesday, August 22nd, 2012

Some teachers make such an impact on their student by inspiring, encouraging, and making education fun. After a whole summer without them, you may even feel happy to be going back to school to learn more from them! Here are a few items on The Gift Chick’s list of awesome, fun and practical gifts for the teachers that we appreciate…

This digital match stylus, iStrike, looks very quirky and I’m certain it will catch everyone’s attention. It’s a more ideal stylus for the iPad but it also works on the iPhone and iPod Touch.

These Pattern Clipboards are the perfect gift for anyone on your list, including your teachers. They combine both fashion and function.

As seen on the Martha Stewart show, the Original from PackIt is perfect for school, work, the field, the beach and anywhere else you plan to snack. Thanks to its patented eco-gel liner, PackIt keeps your contents cooler, longer. No need for bulky ice packs. No need for ice that quickly melts. Simply store PackIt in your freezer until you’re ready to go.

RuMe Cuff is the first reusable drink sleeve AND wallet all in one! Store cash, keys and coffee cards while fingers safe from hot or cold drinks. Wear it as an arm or wrist band while on a walk or run. Genius!

These Weekly Organizer pads can be used anywhere you need to remember something like in the classroom, office, or home. The newest, coolest invention — they stick to stainless steel, mirrors, glass, tile, laminates, finished wood and more. Each pad measures 10 x 10-inches and includes 50 ruled sheets.

With the 5-Days-A-Week Mousepad, put your mousepad to work! With our plentiful paper version, you can jot notes and important thoughts in the most convenient spot—right under your hand. Keep track of your busy week, and when you’ve made it through Friday, tear off the proof of your productivity and start the whole thing over.

Got a teacher who’s a sports fan? Do they crumble up paper and try to make a basket? Let them take their trash to the next level and really score with the Work Less, Play More notepad! The back of each page is printed like a sports ball. There are 48 pages with eight different styles.

Teachers can stylishly post reminders, children’s artwork, to-do lists and more almost anywhere. Happeez Clips incorporate revolutionary material grips to slick surfaces, including stainless steel refrigerators, with no residue. To maintain grip, wipe back with water or vinegar-based glass cleaner and dry.

Teacher appreciation: Big ups to my teachers!

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012

“I am indebted to my father for living, but to my teacher for living well.”
~ Alexander the Great

School’s end is nearly approaching and, before we break for summer, go crazy and throw our textbooks away, it’s a nice gesture to show our teachers a little gratitude for putting up with us another year and for sharing their knowledge with us. Teachers are equally ecstatic for summer break (I mean, you weren’t the easiest student to have in class) so give them something to help them enjoy it and rejuvenate for next term! Check out some of these cool Teacher Gifts

Happy trails, till we meet again! Send your teacher off into the summer sun with a trendy Rhinestone Sunglasses Cosmetic Purse. Most likely, if they’re not stuck with you in summer school, your teachers are taking advantage of their break to travel. Let them go in style with this cute purse that may be used as a clutch or cosmetic bag during their summer getaway.

Teachers could use a helping hand amidst all the hustle and bustle of the school year. Perk em up with the RuMe Cuff and I Am Not  a Paper Cup. Let the RuMe Cuff hold their cash, cards, and/or important notes while they have their hands full with stacks of papers to grade. I Am Not A Paper Cup keeps their coffee/tea guzzling eco-friendly.

Give your teacher a break from cafeteria food. What better way to show your teacher appreciation than with a batch of homemade chocolate chip cookies and cold cup of milk in a PackIt Personal Cooler! No need for bulky ice packs, no need for ice that quickly melts, keeps food and drinks cold up to 10 hours, and your teacher can use it over and over again.

The Weekly Striped To-Do Pad would be a big help in keeping your teacher organized. He/She can use it to organize their busy life or busy classroom agendas.

Get Teacher ready for next school term with fun and educational classroom props. The students can get involved in building a Rubberband Orbit Ball or with fun classroom games like Tenzi.
