It's the time of year when we're trying to find the perfect gifts for teachers. If anyone deserves something awesome, it's the people who teach our kids! Some of Team BtB know firsthand just how challenging this can be. And in 2021, that's been even more true. Teachers have gone above and beyond this year, and then above and beyond again. Adapting to remote learning, hybrid learning, in-person learning under exception circumstances, tweaking and changing lesson plans, making things fun and engaging for their students ... Nothing on earth could possibly be enough to truly say thank-you!

But great gifts can at least express our gratitude fabulously! In this post, you'll find gifts that will put a grin on the face of even the most overworked teacher. Of course we know that none of these things are enough to thank our teachers for teaching through a global pandemic, but they can certainly make your favorite teachers feel appreciated. So, until we can fundraise to send our teachers on a tropical getaway, these cute and clever items will have to do!
