Teacher Appreciation Day: Celebrating the Teachers in Your Life

Teacher Appreciation Day is just around the corner on Tuesday, May 8th!

As a former teacher, this day means so much to me. It’s such a joy to receive something special from your students. (Many teachers end up spending more time with their students than our own children, so every small gift is appreciated!)

If you’re not sure what to get the teachers in your life, I’m sharing my favorite inkWELL Press products for teachers and care providers today.

Teacher Appreciation Day Gift Guide

Weekly Kickstart Notepad + IWP Post It® Note Set

Designed to help organize and streamline your week, this set is a great way for teachers to kickoff their week! With sections to plan each day and running task list along the right side, your teacher will feel confident he or she has a handle on the week ahead! (These are also perfect for pre-planning before you move items into your liveWELL Planner.)

With this Weekly Kickstart Notepad (or any other product really!) I suggest grabbing the IWP Post It® Note Set. We teamed up with 3M – the makers of Post It® Notes — and created 4 different color schemes with the inkWELL logo! Only $8.00 in our shop for 4 sets! This bundle would be great for a teacher who uses a lot of Post It® Notes, notepads and likes a little planning & organization in her life!

Aquamarine Sewn Journal + inkWELL Press Greetings

Does the teacher in your child’s life love to write and jot things down? Our gridded sewn journals take your notes and make them feel a little more stylish! We have three designs for our Sewn Journals, and at only $12.00 each, they’re definitely a steal. The best thing about these is that they come with the highest quality paper and can fit almost anywhere.

If you want to add a little something extra in there, check out our inkWELL Press Greetings®. These little cards are great as a little gift on their own and they are certainly perfect for brightening someone’s day. Great for a teacher to display on their desk!

Just Start Graph Notepad + IWP Pencil Set

Is your child’s teacher a creative doodler, or isn’t afraid to structure her to do lists differently? Our Just Start organizational notepad was created because we know you sometimes need to jot a note or sketch out an idea, and not be confined to individual boxes. This notepad uses a beautiful gold metallic pigment ink which gives a subtle shimmer to elevate the most mundane of notes. This pigment is not as shiny as gold foil, but adds just the right amount of fun to your teacher’s day!

The perfect pair for this notepad is our Pencil Set! Our quality real wood, strong graphite, and smear free eraser feels as good as it looks. Stamped with fun, goal foil motivational sayings, these are sure to bring a smile to your teacher’s face.

inkWELL Press Notepads

We have five different notepads to keep your teachers in check! We already mentioned my favorites, the Weekly Kickstart and Just Start Notepad, but also check out the Grocery List, Daily Docket, and Daily Download for more inspiration. Any combination of these notepads makes a wonderful gift for any teacher. No matter their age or the subject they teach, these notepads are sure to help organize, prioritize and inspire! If your kid’s teacher already owns a planner, the Weekly Kickstart should be your go-to.

Gift Certificates

If you’re just not sure which style, layout, colors, etc. would appeal to the teacher in your life, a gift certificate is your perfect solution. We offer gift cards in several denominations, so it will always fit with your budget. They’re delivered via email too, so if you’re in a bind on Teacher Appreciation Day, you’ll have an instant (and much appreciated!) gift.

Academic Year Planners

Obviously, most teachers run on the academic year that runs from July through June, so it makes sense that many of them would use an Academic Planner! Your kid’s teacher will love being able to set goals in style with one of our five different cover designs.
