Looking for easy and adorable coffee gifts? These coffee gift ideas are easy to make, come with adorable free printables, and are loved by (caffeine-fueled) teachers everywhere!
Why I Love Coffee Gifts
I love giving coffee teacher appreciation gifts for several reasons:
Period. (Do I need to elaborate? )
- Coffee gifts are easy to scale up or down.
Everyone has a different budget for teacher appreciation gifts. A coffee gift can be as simple as a cup of coffee with a fun label or as elaborate as a coffee gift basket full of coffee beans, a custom teacher mug, and mocha cookies. You set the budget and the scale.
- Coffee is a thoughtful gift, even if you don’t know someone well.
It can be hard to buy a teacher appreciation gift for the person who spends each day with your child… but who you might not know well on a personal level. A coffee gift card is always appreciated!
- Teachers deserve a little indulgence every day.
Specialty coffee is a bit of an indulgence. I mean, really, we can all drink our coffee at home straight out of the pot… but isn’t it more fun to go to the coffee shop and grab a cup that was made just for you? It’s a mini indulgence, and teachers deserve that special perk! (Yes, I said PERK!)
- Did I mention that it’s coffee (full of caffeine)?
It takes a lot of energy to deal with tiny people day in and day out. These fun gift ideas keep educators fully caffeinated!
