Teachers spend a lot of time with our kids, so finding a great gift for them is important. A personalized gift is sure to bring a smile to your favorite teacher’s face. Krista Kustra, owner of Couture Stitches, shared her ideas for memorable teacher gifts.

  • Teachers carry a lot of stuff, so a monogrammed tote bag is a practical, yet personal gift.
  • Small cosmetic bags can be useful for carrying everything from actual cosmetics to thumb drives and school supplies.
  • Who doesn’t need to drink more water? Personalize a water bottle with your favorite teacher’s initials and it won't ever get lost in the break room.
  • A small cross body bag is perfect for carrying essentials out to recess.
  • Some of the best gifts are things that a teacher can use in or out of school. One example? A pretty scarf with her initials is a lovely gift.
