Think you’re set for the holidays? But did you forget anyone? Perhaps THE MOST important person (or people) of all time?? Whatever you do, do not forget your childrens’ teachers, babysitters, and daycare workers!
It wasn’t until my son started kindergarten last year that I realized just how selfless these teachers are. They take care of our babies, day in and day out. They’re underpaid and under appreciated. So I have made it a point to show my outpouring of love and gratitude at any chance I get.
But what do you buy for the person who has likely gotten every apple-themed, pencil-holding, knick knack under the sun?
Big Lots has us covered.
Teacher and Administration Gift Ideas
Yes, the teachers! But don’t forget about the administration and other necessary school staff!
Gift Ideas for the Foodies
Everyone gets cookies, right? But what about the foodie-teachers? I’m sure they’re cookied-out by Christmas break. Big Lots has a large selection of foodie items that will be perfect for your teachers.
Some notable favorites of ours (and our teachers) are the meat and cheese sets, lobster spread, smoked salmon, and spicy jalapeno hot sauce.
If you know the teacher is a drinkie (like a foodie, but with adult beverages!), you can also buy fun mixers and glasses!
Gift Ideas for the Caffeine-Obsessed
Like I said before, teachers are cookied-out. But is there really a limit on caffeine? I think not!
Big Lots has a large variety of coffee, tea, and even cocoa gifts for your favorite caffeine-obsessed teacher. There’s the 12-cocoa’s of Christmas, exotic teas from around the world, and more!
Practical Gifts with Fun Flare
Everyone loves a plush blanket for those cold winter nights, so pick one up from Big Lots! I can tell you from experience that the cozy blankets pair perfectly with the Dearfoam slippers!
Or perhaps an oil diffuser and some relaxing bath bombs to give your teacher an opportunity to treat herself (or himself!). Regardless of the type of practical gift you choose, I’m certain that the teacher will be forever grateful.
Other Hard-to-Shop-For People in Your Life
School staff aren’t the only ones who are difficult to shop for. Stop by Big Lots for all of your gifting needs!
I’m completely ready for Christmas morning thanks to the stocking stuffers I picked up at Big Lots. My kids are obsessed with lip gloss and bath stuff, so I grabbed a few character themed sets for them.
White Elephant Gifts
My extended family hosts an annual Christmas party two weeks before the holiday. This year I’m bringing my A-Game for our white elephant exchange thanks to the super fun gifts I picked up at Big Lots.
Spreading holiday cheer
Regardless of who you are shopping for, be sure to pick up all of the things you need for spreading holiday cheer at Big Lots!
Tell me — what are you going to pick up for the teachers this year?
