Back-to-School Teacher Gifts

Posted by Annette Bellisari on

I know it’s traditional to give teachers an end-of-year teacher gift, but after the unprecedented challenges of last year, I’m thinking a welcome-back-to-school gift would be a great way to wish teachers a successful 2021-2022 school year! If the last two years have taught us anything, it is that teachers are truly heroes. I think a back-to-school gift for teachers is a very thoughtful way to start off the year. 

By the time the kids are back in school, their teachers have already spent hours getting everything ready for their classroom, often spending their own money on classroom supplies. Receiving a back-to-school gift would be a welcomed surprise and an encouragement for your child’s teacher. We know there are a ton of really cute DIY teacher gift ideas on Pinterest. The problem with a lot of them, though, is that most teachers wouldn’t actually know what to do with a lot of those really cute homemade gifts. Ideally, a teacher gift is practical and something that anyone would like to receive.

We feel certain that Bellisari’s gifts are something that they’ll actually use. While not everyone cooks, everyone eats, right? There’s no need to worry about whether this is something a teacher would use because one of the best things about Bellisari’s sauces and spreads is that you don’t have to be someone who’s particularly good at cooking to enjoy them. Our products make producing delicious gourmet dishes simple and convenient for anyone. Plus, on every jar you’ll find recipes and serving suggestions included. We even include beer and wine pairing advice for each sauce or spread, making it super easy to complete your dish and serve the perfect match for ultimate enjoyment.

A back to school teacher gift doesn’t have to be big and expensive. The point is to acknowledge the occasion and make it special. These Bellisari’s gifts will do just that. (

If you do decide to give a gift, gift cards are particular favorites. How much you spend is really up to you and your budget. In the case of buying gift cards, I suggest $25 from any one individual. If parents are contributing to a group gift, then $5 to $10 from several parents would make a nice collective gift card.

Simply choose between $25, $50, $75, or $100, and input the recipient's email address and we will email it directly to them. (

In a profession that often seems thankless and not worth the stress, a little acknowledgment goes a long way. Whether it’s from an administrator, parent, or student, it’s just nice to hear you are appreciated—at least once in a while. So a teacher's gift is a wonderful way of expressing thanks. In addition, it’s a great way for kids to get excited about the first day of school. Giving a back-to-school gift is one way for them to recognize that their teacher is someone to be respected and appreciated.
