Ideas for last-minute teacher gifts plus FREE printable Teacher Thank You cards to help you navigate the chaos and end the school year well.
This post contains affiliate links. Read here for more information. The following opinion is completely my own. I’ve had Prime for about 3 years and I’m a very happy customer. Prime is not reimbursing me for this opinion, I just love the program and hope you’ll find it as helpful and as much of a bargain as I have.
Oh no!! I Forgot the Teacher Gift! Help!
I’ve been there.
Would you like a hand with this?
May is such a busy month. I was always scrambling at the end of the school year to try to come up with some kind of gift that would show my children’s’ teachers that I appreciated all the time and effort given to teaching them that year.
Let Amazon Prime Help
Rather than make a hurried mad dash to the store to try to find a gift for the teacher, then a gift bag and card to go along with it, use the links below to shop for a gift and take advantage of Amazon’s gift wrapping service. Have you ever used this? It’s GREAT!
When you go to checkout, click on the box that says Add a Gift Receipt and it will take you to the gift options for your order. You can click Add a Gift Receipt which is an additional receipt will be included in the order and does not contain the price of the gift. Then click on Gift Bag/Box. The gift will arrive in a lovely fabric gift bag that the receiver can reuse, or in a pretty gift box (usually smaller gifts like jewelry) that is ready to give.
The gift arrives beautifully wrapped and you didn’t have to take the time or spend the gas money to run to the store. With the wonderful benefit of Prime’s fast shipping, your gift arrives within two days wrapped and ready to give.
If you don’t have Prime now, get it. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
Just the free 2-day shipping (some cities have free same-day and one-day shipping) in itself is worth the $119 yearly fee, but all the access to free e-books in Prime Reading and all the free access to movies and TV series in Prime Video makes Prime a bargain. College students with a valid .edu email address can enroll in Prime Student for half the regularly annual enrollment fee.
Teacher Appreciation Gifts in Two Days, Wrapped and Ready to Give
To help save you time and money, I’ve created a list of teacher gift ideas that are available in Prime that can be gift wrapped and at your door in two days or less depending on where you live. Scroll down further in this post and you’ll find FREE downloadable Teacher Thank You cards you can print from your printer saving you more time and money.
I know you’re crazy busy and I want to be as helpful to you as possible.
According to Money magazine (August 3, 2016), teachers spend an average of $500 per year of their own money on classroom supplies. Consider pooling together with other classroom parents and fill the tote bag below with various supplies to help with those expenses for the next school year.
Don’t forget the men who teach!
Put office supplies shown above in this bag for a male teacher!
