Whether it’s the birthday of your husband, your good friend who happens to be a teacher, your pops who work way too hard in the classroom, or maybe your very own teacher who’s turning it up a year – you most definitely want to get them something nice!

Teachers are wonderful and hardworking people who truly carry the weight of our future generations on their shoulders, and they deserve to be spoiled as such!

In this edition of my gift-giving guides, I’ll give you 8 awesome birthday gift ideas for men who strive to be the best teacher they can be.

They deserve it!

Gift your fella a well-deserved spa day, because he will need it!

If anyone deserves to have a relaxing day at the spa, it is our teachers. Regardless of which grade they teach, from preschool to 12th grade, a massage and a facial does wonders for both body and mind.

Check out what your local spa has to offer, and get him the nicest package they got within your budget!

Help personalize his classroom with a custom stamp that's got his name on it!

Get him a custom stamp with his name for marking books and papers!

These are so handy, and is especially great for teachers who bring a lot of their own books to their classroom (its a crime that they have to in the first place but that's besides the point).

Customize the stamp to say "Mr. West or Teacher West" or whatever you feel makes sense.

(this will also save him money as way less books will be lost!)

Fuel his caffeine addiction by gifting him a personalized insulated travel mug

If there is one thing that teachers tend to need a lot of, it is coffee.

Keep it hot by getting him a customized insulated coffee travel mug with his name on it!

In my world the more personalized a gift is, the better.


Get him a nice messenger bag for all his papers and computer

The main reason I could never be a teacher is because these guys have to go home and grade papers for hours every week, OUTSIDE of work-hours!

Help him carry his stuff around with one of these awesome and stylish messenger bags!

They're great quality for the price, and keep tons of documents such as papers, essays, books and computer.



Help him cope with the stress of teaching with copious amounts of alcohol

Just kidding.


When you're grabbing a present for a teacher you're aiming to get something that'll help him relax, and for a lot of people that is a nice glass of their favorite poison on a Friday night.

Or Monday.

Or Tuesday.

Splurge! Head over to Total Wine and get a nice recommended bottle of his favorite liquor, whether that be whiskey, gin, wine, or maybe some fancy craft beer!

Turn it into a kit by getting a couple bottles, some treats, card and a candle.

Show his class who's the boss by getting him a custom name plate for his desk

A cheap and fun addition to their classroom!

These customized nameplates just up their desk game a little, and is a great way for new students to always have their teacher's name on deck.


Increase his classroom fit game with a teacher themed hoodie

I absolutely LOVE these teacher-themed hoodies and T-shirts from Teepublic (no, not sponsored or affiliated).

They're super fun and affordable, and so comfy.

It is perfect for the teacher that truly loves his job, which most great teachers tend to do.


Loosen up those muscles by gifting him a relaxing neck and shoulder massager

Whether they want it in the classroom or keep it at home, this relaxing neck massager is an absolute game changer.

It's a great way to destress and enjoy a few minutes of peace, and the quality for the price is just fantastic.
