End-of-Year Teacher Gifts They Won’t Throw Away!


Gift giving is a traditional end of year gesture that makes not only the receiver happy, but also the giver—seeing gratitude and a big smile on their teachers faces. 

Teachers are a little challenging to pick a gift for since we’re not that close to them and might not know each of them well enough to choose something that perfectly resonates with them. And often, gifts we get for them go to waste – sad, but definitely true. Of course, they won’t show it and still be grateful, but let’s take a moment and ponder: is the thought really what matters most? We’re not so sure about that; a gift must carry a message and allow practical use in everyday life. This is why we believe in the excellence of custom, personalized gifts that will surely generate  genuine smiles! 

Sit tight, as Things Engraved gives you gift ideas for your teachers that they won’t throw away.

So, What Should You Get Your Teacher?

We promise these gifts won’t be thrown away the second they enter your teacher’s home! 

Customized Picture Block


The first idea to inspire you is a customized picture block from Things Engraved. This here is a beautifully crafted wooden block that can be altered however you want! This block is a perfect opportunity to express your gratitude and appreciation for everything that one teacher has done for you throughout the year! Go ahead and display their name, school, and grade to create a unique keepsake that they’ll cherish for years to come. Plus, it will serve as a souvenir they’ll proudly display at home or in class! 

Embroidered Messenger Bag


Does your teacher value style, functionality, and versatility? If so, we have something perfect for you – a briefcase messenger bag with an embroidered message. This customizable bag from Things Engraved is made from durable, highquality materials. Plus, with its spacious main compartment and zippered closure, your teacher can easily carry the essentials, even a laptop! Besides the main compartment, the messenger bag has numerous pockets to store small items, such as pens, phones, chargers, etc. This bag features an adjustable shoulder strap, ensuring comfort while carrying since the teachers are always on the go. As a bonus, the bag’s design is stylish and sleek, so it’s both comfortable and modern! 

Don’t forget to come up with something original, maybe even witty, to embroider on the bag! 

Customized Vacuum Bottle


This one is self-explanatory. Since teachers spend hours at school, a vacuum bottle is definitely something they’ll need: it allows them to keep beverages hot or cold for hours on end. These bottles from Things Engraved can be customized with your personal message, accompanied by our beautiful designs! The customized vacuum bottle lets you show your teacher how much they mean to you and how grateful you are to be their student! 

Engraved Pen


Teachers are one of those people who really have a knack for presenting engraved pens in their finest light. So, go ahead and get them an engraved pen from Things Engraved. Be creative and original, engrave something unique or simply their name or initials – the key is to make the pen resonate with them. Scroll through our collection of engraved pens and explore different types and styles; choose the one that catches your eyes and will catch your teacher’s eyes, too! Choose between faux leather pens, metal stylized pens, and ball pens. This simple yet elegant gift brings a sense of luxury and confidence into your teacher’s life! 

Personalized Picture Frame


Do you have a class picture with your favourite teacher? Then, don’t overthink it. Get them a picture frame from our personalized frames and albums collection to secure that one photo for years. Bonus points if the photo is from the same school year you’re getting a gift. The frame can be custom engraved with their name, the date the picture was taken, or your special message. Make the picture even more special by getting a customized picture frame for your teacher! 

Do you remember the wooden block we told you about earlier? The same wood block can also be used to printa picture, so you have another option! 

Customized Mugs

It’s only fair that the most outstanding teacher in the world gets the greatest mug of all! Surprise your teacher with a beautifully customized mug that transcends the ordinary. Imagine their delight as they unwrap a mug adorned with their name, a heartfelt message, or a design that reflects their unique personality. Imagine the warmth of a cozy evening, wrapped in a soft blanket, with a steaming cup of their favourite beverage in hand – how comfortable and relaxing! 

Wrapping it Up

Whether it’s a customized picture block, an embroidered messenger bag, or an engraved pen, each gift is a heartfelt token of appreciation that teachers are sure to treasure.
