Gift Ideas for Your Favorite English Teacher

by melanie_a917

A collection of gift ideas for your favorite English teacher.

English teachers suffer through a lot while trying to educate our youth. Grammar is complicated, and they have to try to teach several children at once to understand the many nuances, while dealing with the typical attitudes and problems many teenagers face while going through that phase of life. If you want to recognize your, or your child's, teacher's efforts, but don't have any ideas for the perfect gift, hopefully this list will inspire you.

Keep Clam and Proofread

Proofreading is a big part of any English assignment, and this poster is the perfect parody of the stress it can cause. There are a variety of ways to customize it, including changing the material type and color. There's also a similar one that replaces "proofread" with "spellcheck" if you prefer.


World's Most Awesome Teacher Watch

Watches have been a classic gift for years. What teacher wouldn't love wearing a time piece that states how appreciated they are by the students they've worked so hard to educate? It's understated while allowing them to proudly wear their badge of honor. 


Most Awesomest English Teacher

My 10th grade English teacher made it clear that this type of phrasing was a huge pet peeve of hers. This mug is definitely for the English teacher with a big sense of humor, since looking at it will probably cause more eye twitching than a severe lack of coffee. 


Before Not B4

Is it possible to have too many bags? I didn't think so, especially when there's witty grammar based commentary on the side. If you aren't fond of the idea of a white bag, customization options give you the chance to select different colors.


#1 Teacher Ornament

Ornaments are a traditional gift for many. A decoration that shows your appreciation can bring happy memories annually, whenever the time comes to put it on display. This simple snowflake ornament is a great gift idea for teachers because it states your appreciation without being tied to any particular holiday, so it's appropriate for the entirety of winter. 

Almost everyone enjoys feeling appreciated, and a simple gift goes a long way to show how you feel. Teachers work hard to educate our youth and have to deal with many struggles throughout the year, so knowing that their hard work has been noticed helps to make it all worthwhile.

Veronica, I understand your point. I know for me, there were some teachers I had that impacted my life enough that I wanted to get them gifts. I can see how it would be hard to accept in those circumstances, but I think it means you must have been a great teacher.

blackspanielgallery I haven't actually had much trouble with witch/which, so I didn't even think about it. Even with texting, I try to use proper grammar. All the short cuts get on my nerves. :)

I taught in some of the poorest areas of England and I was always saddened when the families spent their hard-come-by cash on me for doing a job I was being paid to do.

I know it is their way of showing appreciation but they could have spent it on food for their families.

If they insisted I always said I liked a mug or tea bags for my favourite gift.

Nice selection. It is getting worse than B4 with text messaging. Most of the faculty cannot read emails from students due to the lack of language skills. I am surprised witch for which did not get on your list.
