6 Heartfelt Gifts for for Teachers

At the start of May, parents and grandparents all over the US start brainstorming gift options to dote on their favorite educators.  As Teacher Appreciation Week approaches, it’s the perfect time to share your love of authentic Polish pottery by pairing it with something small to brighten your favorite teacher’s classroom. Here are some common and fun gift ideas to add to Polish pottery:

  1. Favorite Treat: As the saying goes, the way to someone’s heart is through their stomach. Consider pairing a beautiful mug with some gourmet hot chocolate or granola bars.  A couple dozen homemade cookies on a decorate serving plate is always an indulgent treat, plus they will bring your teacher extra love from all the students if these are shared around the classroom.
  2. Plants: Add some greenery to your teacher’s classroom or home with a Polish pottery planter filled with a succulent or other low-maintenance greenery. Plants not only add beauty to a space, but they also have the added benefit of improving air quality and reducing stress.
  3. A Personalized Gift: Teachers work hard to get to know their students, so why not get to know your teacher a little better and create a personalized gift? Consider pairing a set of hand-painted Polish pottery dishes with a handwritten recipe or a set of mugs with a monogrammed tea towel. These unique gifts show your teacher that you value the relationship they have with your child.
  4. A Self-Care Kit: Teaching can be a stressful job, so why not help your child’s teacher relax and unwind with a self-care kit? You could pair a beautiful lidded tea set for one with a scented candle and paperback novel or combine a soap dish with a loofah, scented soap, and bath bombs. These gifts show your teacher that you care about their well-being and appreciate all they do for your child.
  5. Classroom Supplies: Teachers often spend their own money on classroom supplies. Consider filling a beautiful Polish pottery tumbler with markers or pop some paper clips in a colorful lidded jar. This practical gift will not only be appreciated, but it will also add a touch of beauty to the classroom.
  6. Flowers: When in doubt, a bountiful bouquet paired with a Polish Pottery vase strikes the perfect balance of surprise and heartfelt appreciation.
