The Best Gift For Teachers To Give (Or Get!)


If you’re a teacher like me, you probably have mixed feelings about the weeks between Thanksgiving and the winter holidays.

It’s such a beautiful time of the year – but the kids also get a little bit rowdy, you’re scrambling to put together student gifts or holiday projects…..and then there’s your OWN holiday baking and shopping. Yikes!! It’s all a little much.

But I have a tip for you that will make your holiday shopping MUCH easier!

Instead of texting your sister 27 times asking for gift ideas, get her a book or subscription from GiftLit. (And use my affiliate code, PrimaryPond5, for a 10% discount when you check out! This code is good through December 24th.)

GiftLit is a book subscription box company that does a fantastic job of curating book collections. You can choose from 3, 6, or 9 month subscriptions, and you can even swap out some of the books if you like!

Shopping for a child? You can choose from different subscription boxes for kids by age group, or by fun categories like:

  • Trains, Planes, and Things That Go
  • Favorites for Boys
  • Great New Picture Books, and more.

If you’re looking for a gift for a teen (I never know what to buy for them!), there are plenty of fun collections that you can order “as is” or customize. Some of them include

  • Fantasy
  • Fiction for Girls
  • Graphic Novels

There are tons of choices for adults, too. For the chef or wine lover in the family, check out the “Eat, Drink, & Party” collection. There are also great fiction and nonfiction collections available.

There are SO many great subscription options on the website. But if you ask me, one of the cutest options is The Cuddle Collection.

These books are designed for 2-5 year olds and all come with an adorable stuffed animal. The best part is that, like any of the other subscriptions, it’s not just a single gift – the recipient continues to receive a book each month for as long as the subscription lasts!

There are so many fun things you could do with a subscription – you could have “Santa” gift your classroom with a 3 or 6 month subscription – how much fun would it be for the kids to unwrap a surprise book each month?

Obviously, I’m biased, because I love books. 🙂 But in my opinion, a GiftLit subscription is one of the best things to give (or get) for the holidays or any time of year.

After you’ve selected your boxes, don’t forget to use my affiliate code PrimaryPond5 at checkout to save 10% through December 24, 2016. Happy shopping, and I hope this idea makes life easier for you this holiday season!
