Life has looked a lot different since March, and no one is feeling this more than teachers. Since COVID-19 swept the country in the spring, America’s educators have stepped up to the plate. They’ve transitioned to remote learning and back to modified in-person classes again. They’ve dealt with technical difficulties, different time zones, and new software and it certainly hasn’t been easy.

Classes recently started up again, and teachers are putting in the work. From virtual PhD programs to socially-distanced kindergarten classes, teachers are working around the clock to be there for learners of every age. October 5 is World Teachers’ Day, and this year’s theme is fittingly “Leading in crisis, reimagining the future.”

Maybe you’re friends with a teacher, have a child in school, or are in school yourself. Express your gratitude to the teacher in your life on World Teachers’ Day! These gift ideas are a mix of useful products for the classroom and personal gifts to brighten their day.

It’s always nice to receive a thank you note and it’s even better when that card comes with something to snack on. Treat the teachers in your life to a thoughtful basket of treats or snacks for them to enjoy.

Or send them a bigger array of snacks for early morning study hall or after-school clubs.

Teachers often have to foot the bill for their own classroom supplies, and those costs can add up. Gifting a teacher something they’ll already need for their class can be a huge help. For the time being, teachers are going to need face masks—why not send them some stylish options?

To help keep their classroom (and hands) clean, send some hand sanitizer, soap, and lotion for the inevitable dry hands.

At the end of a long day, teachers need the chance to relax. Help them out with an aromatherapy set or a tea set. Plus, SmartGift's instant digital delivery makes sending the perfect gift a safe, socially-distanced experience for everyone.

At the end of the day, a timeless gift is always flowers. Give them a bright bunch of seasonal flowers that can brighten up their teaching desk or window sill at home.
