Teacher Appreciation Week is May 6-10. It’s time to honor our children’s teachers for all that they do for our kids!

Over the years, they get a ton of mugs, so I have stopped giving them mugs and cups. I’m always on the hunt for unexpected and memorable gifts. Surprisingly, one time I saw a parent give our teacher a Coach purse! Wow!

I truly appreciate our teachers as they put so much energy and time into our kids! And many years ago, I was a substitute teacher for preschool and 5th grade as well as an afterschool and summer school teacher. And it was exhausting!

It takes a special person to want to nurture and pour energy into kids. Here are my top picks for thoughtful teacher appreciation gifts.
