News alert: Teachers don't really want candles and cookies at the holidays. Remember these are the folks that look after and guide our most precious gift--our kids. Momtrends says: No re-gifting for teachers, no cheap body lotions. What teachers really want to get for the holidays are gift cards and practical gifts like a Tervis Tumbler. 

What Teachers Really Want to Get for the Holidays

Give Teachers a Gift They Will Love

Like most schools, our girl's school is trying to be as green as possible. They've really cut down on waste and are encouraging everyone to use refillable bottles. That's where Tervis comes in. 

Tervis is the place to get colorful and expressive designs -- these tumblers are things that make teachers want to hang on to them year after year. 

To start, my daughter and I picked the Dragonfly Mandala from Tervis. Her math teacher is a nature lover and we were drawn to this pretty design. This double-walled tumbler offers all the benefits of stainless steel -- it's easy to clean and super sturdy.  Tervis makes high quality reusable plastic drinkware that lasts longer.

We added a giftcard to help supply her with her morning tea and some lip balm for her weekend hikes and protection against NYC's blustery weather.  

Top Gift Cards for Teachers

  • Visa or Amex (can be used anywhere and for travel & meals)
  • Amazon 
  • Apple
  • Grocery Store
  • Favorite coffee chain

Momtrends Tip: Have your child write the card to the teacher and personalize it with two things that make your child happy to go to school every day. Head to this post to get some inspiration.

Why Tervis Tumblers Make Great Gifts

The tumbler will keep drinks cold for up to 24 hours cold and hot for up to 8 hours hot. Since spills happen, I like that it comes with a leak resistant and easy-close lid. To clean, hand wash with soap (no bleach or chlorine) and water using a scratch-free sponge.
