Southern Savers 2023 Gift Guides | Best Gifts for Teachers (and Coaches)

Paper Mate Flair Pens

All my teacher friends LOVE these pens. If your child’s teacher doesn’t know about them, they’ll probably be happy to discover them!

Yankee Candle Spiced Pumpkin Scented, Classic 22oz Large Jar Single Wick Aromatherapy Candle, Over 110 Hours of Burn Time, Apothecary Jar Fall Candle, Autumn Candle for Home

Jar Candle

Yankee Candles or really any type of candle is a fun gift for a teacher to use at home to unwind from a day with all of the kids.  Plus the holiday scents sure do smell good!  Watch for great coupon offers to get these half priced!

Lightweight Chenille Ribbed Scarf


Succulent or indoor plant

You can never go wrong with a plant! Succulents are wonderful because they can live without water for a while, meaning it won’t die over school breaks.

Gift Cards

Amazon gift cards are a great choice because teachers can purchase something for their classroom if they wish, or they can just treat themselves with something they’ve been eyeing!

Tumbler with Handle

Coaches and teachers are always bringing beverages on the go and a travel mug or insulated cup can come in handy.

DIY Mason Jar Gifts

Grab a mason jar or airtight jar and fill with all kinds of ingredients! Google if you need some more ideas.

Personalized notepad

These notepads for teachers are so fun, and you can get them personalized without a lot of extra cost!

Gift basket

Find a basket at the dollar store and fill it with goodies: coffee, a mug, tea bags, candy, some socks, etc.

A handwritten note

If money is tight, no teacher or coach is going to be upset receiving a thoughtful, handwritten note expressing your appreciation for their influence in your child’s life. Maybe tape the note to a small candy bar for a little treat!
