As I mentioned in my Thanksgiving post, Micah’s school is officially closing their doors at the end of the school year…and I am utterly devastated. Micah doesn’t understand it yet, but I’m sure it will hit him hard at the end of the school year. Needless to say, I’m not looking forward to it. You see, I love each and every one of them dearly – the ones that have taught Micah in the past, the ones that teach him now, and the ones that will never get to teach him at this school. (Can you tell that I’m really sad about this?)

Since this will be our last Christmas with them, I decided that Micah and I would make some creative gifts just for them.

But what should we make?…that’s the big question.

So what do you do when you’re a blogger looking for some ideas? You search on Pinterest, and you do a blog round-up, of course!

Here are some great Holiday gift ideas for teachers that I’ve found, and I wanted to share with you. I’ll share another post with what we settled on!

About Natasha

Hi, I'm Natasha! I'm a 30-something Program Manager and blogger at Epic Mommy Adventures. Most importantly, I'm a single mom to my adorable son, who drives me nuts in one moment and melts my heart in the next. I enjoy sharing our epic stories, giving advice to other single moms, and sharing my co-parenting woes. I also share blog hops, giveaways, product reviews, and so much more. Join the fun!


  1. Oh boy, I am so behind in all of this… I need to get into gear and get gifts for Dino’s teacher, karate instructor, bus driver, mail carrier, cleaning lady, and daycare (after school teacher). Too many people to shop for…

    These are such great ideas, and I’m so afraid I’m just not creative

    • All of these gifts are ones that this completely non-creative mama (that’s me, by the way) can do so I’m sure you could do it too. I have already chosen what we’ll do, and honestly, it’s not going to take way too much to get it done. Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Hi Natasha,
    This is an awesome and very helpful roundup! This will make many teachers happy this holiday season!

  3. Oh, this has been weighing on my mind lately, trying to figure out what to get the preschool teacher! Thank you for this wonderful list. Personally, I’d want the Supply Christmas Tree for myself! Pinning!

    • I have been debating it for quite some time too, Melissa! Those preschool teachers are just so great; I have to do something great for them too! I’ve finally decided what we’ll do and I can’t wait to share once it’s all done. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  4. Oh man I’m behind on this. I think we’ll work on something this weekend for Molly’s teachers.

  5. Great roundup! I was just thinking about what to do for the teachers!

    • Thanks! I have really been thinking hard about what to get – and I’m so glad that I did the round-up just to find something perfect for them. Thanks for stopping by and enjoying the post! 🙂

  6. I’ve seen a lot of gift guides but I haven’t seen any for teachers. This is an awesome round-up of ideas. Thanks for linking up at the #HomeMatters Linky!

    • Thanks for stopping by Bonnie! I really feel that the teachers are forgotten, but I always keep them at the forefront of my mind. They are definitely an important factor in our lives, and should be appreciated during the holidays. 🙂
