Teacher Appreciation Week is May 8 through May 12. Are you ready? If you forgot or you’re just a procrastinator, don’t despair! We’ve got you covered with some last-minute ideas. We headed to Walmart and found 11 great options! And we’re loving that Walmart+ makes it easy to get everything you need just in time. Plus, this week, teachers can get 25% off their Walmart+ annual subscription.
Here are 11 last-minute gift and celebration ideas to honor the special teachers in your life.
Scented candles for de-stressing
We love this Better Homes and Gardens mandarin and guava option. It smells like summer and would go great in a Teacher Appreciation gift basket.
Picture frame for special memories
Get some inexpensive frames. You can also make a cute collage of words that describe the teacher you’re gifting, display special student art, or frame this year’s staff or class picture.
A sweet little plant
Check out the wide array of spring plants in the Garden Center at Walmart. We’re big fans of succulents because, well, they’re hard to kill (not that we haven’t). Find a cute pot to put it in and gift this to your teacher with a note.
Alllllll the fancy pens
Teachers love their pens! The office supply aisle at Walmart has so many amazing Pen+Gear pens. You can always rely on the trusted Flair pen option too.
A lanyard that shows their personality
If you don’t have a lanyard, are you even a teacher? Walmart’s accessory section has some fun lanyards teachers can use for their keys and badges. These are Disney-themed and are sure to be loved by the special teacher in your life.
A single-serving coffee maker
Teachers and coffee go hand in hand. Get them a miniature Keurig coffee machine so they can have the convenience of coffee in their classroom. Don’t forget to throw in some K-Cups!
A handmade bracelet
Grab some beads in the Walmart craft section and make a special bracelet. You can also get these No Boundaries bracelets in the accessories section at Walmart.
Chocolate and candy treats
You can’t go wrong with a great snack. Grab chip and full-size candy bar packs for your teachers. Easy and simple.
A small bag for all their teacher things
Every teacher needs a place for their pens, sticky notes, and stickers. These travel bags are compact and cute.
Stationery sets and note cards
Check out these adorable note cards and stationery sets. They’re great for gifting during Teacher Appreciation Week and can complete a cute gift basket.
Monogrammed bag charms
We’re suckers for a monogram. Try these Time and Tru bag charms with letter initials for a thoughtful and personal gift.
Don’t forget to take advantage of the special Walmart+ annual membership deal just for teachers!
