Schools and parent organizations usually provide some sort of welcome-back gift for teachers. Depending on the school or organization's budget, the gifts can be tokens of appreciation or extravagant surprises.
Individual, department or school-wide teacher gift baskets are appropriate. They can be filled with survival-kit items such as Kleenex and hand sanitizer, or with fun items such as stress balls.
Teachers are always in need of school supplies for themselves and their students. Supplies can include pencils, pens, highlighters, Wite-Out, colored pencils, markers, paper clips, binder clips, thumb tacks or dry erase markers.
Food is a great gift for individual teachers or for the entire teacher population of a school. This could be anything from cold cuts, fruit and crudités to individual snack packs and drinks. Sweets such as cookies, candy, cake, brownies and muffins are also popular.
Gifts that incorporate school colors are great for returning teachers. Items such as lanyards, blankets, coffee cups, pens and stickers are easily customized with school colors.
Teachers can always use updated decorating supplies. Items for bulletin boards, doors, windows and walls are always useful. Decorating themes include seasons, holidays and class subject.
