10 Teacher Gifts To Say Thank You For An Awesome School Year

by | May 13, 2019

Rethreaded loves teachers! They change lives everyday!

They arrive first in the morning before students and leave far after classes have been dismissed for the day. Lessons teachers take the time to instill in us are invaluable. Teachers are our everyday heroes.

Take some time to show the teachers in your life how much you care before school wraps up for the year. Before we all hit the beach and soak up the summer sun, show your favorite teacher some love with a mindful gift that will impact them forever!

The following 10 amazing Teacher Gifts will say thank you for an awesome school year and make sure to include a personal note! (Bonus, you can change lives with items under $25)  


Tea and Mug

Teas made by our Freedom Partner JustTea, come in multiple delicious flavors like vibrant hibiscus and soothing peppermint. You can choose leaf or tea bags. Pair with one our Haitian mugs for the perfect gift to give your teacher.

2.Cord Organizer/Cable Keeper

 Cord Condenser

Our most practical and popular handcrafted leather product, the Cord Organizer/Cable Keeper makes a perfect gift with a larger than life origin story. This handcrafted accessory is made from upcycled leather plane seats from Southwest Airlines with a simple snap closure making it easy to store your headphones with style. Teachers are genies when it comes to keeping track of multiple things at once, help them out by gifting an item that will add some stylish organization to their life.

3.Memo Box

Memo Box

This hand embroidered box made from an upcycled cotton sari may be the most heartfelt gift you can give. Each box is filled pieces of small note-sized paper (which also happens to be recycled). You can write a few personal notes to your teacher and leave them inside the memo box. Then when your teacher goes through their newly gifted memo box to write their own notes, they will be greeted with a nice surprise.



We love our survivor made coffee and any coffee-loving teacher will too. The beans are roasted locally by survivors of homelessness. They are then packaged and sold by our survivor employees here at Rethreaded in Jacksonville, Florida. Check out our variety of roasts to find the perfect coffee blend that your favorite teacher will enjoy.

5.Room Spray

Room Spray

Thistle Farms room spray makes any space feel like home! Perfect to keep in a car, bedroom, or the classroom! An added bonus is that this product is handcrafted and made using all-natural essential oil blends. You have the choice of the Cinnamon Cedar or Three Trees scent, which one would you love to gift? Can’t decide on just one! They make a great pair at just two for $28!

6.Coffee Toffee

Coffee Toffee and Leather Accessories

Coffee Toffee is a Rethreaded best seller for a reason. These morsels of caffeinated, sweet moments of joy began as a collaboration between Amelia Toffee and Rethreaded. We do not see this collaboration slowing down anytime soon! Show your teacher what all the hype is about by gifting this locally made delicious treat. Fun Fact: they are also made with that delicious coffee we carry!


Leather Key chain

A Rethreaded X Southwest AirlinesⓇ Keychain is the perfect gift for any teacher. Each Keychain is locally handcrafted from recycled airlines seats by survivors of human trafficking in Jacksonville, Florida. A perfect gift that gives back that’s also great for men with it’s masculine features and solid hardware. Gift this wonderful upcycled item that we know will put a smile on your teacher’s face.

8.Cookie Mix

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

Have a teacher who loves to bake? Our chocolate chip cookie mix helps create job opportunities for deserving women! Not only does your purchase positively impact others it’ll make for a fun evening or weekend activity for your teacher! Better yet, bake them ahead of time and share the story behind the cookies with your class!

Baked goods never go out of style, so you may want to buy two and keep one for yourself!

9.Specialty-Sourced Rainbow Popcorn Kernels

Rainbow Popcorn

What can we say, who doesn’t love specialty (healthy) snacks? Check out the Rainbow Popcorn by Women’s Bean Project. The popcorn also comes with a Pink Himalayan Salt & Black Pepper Seasoning that is beyond delicious. Many of us at Rethreaded have at least one of these cases in our own kitchen- we love it so much! It’s Vegan-friendly too!

10. Honey

Raw Honey

Calling all sweet tooths! Bee Love Honey is delicious, all natural, and goes great with our Tea or Coffee! Pair this honey with a sweet note and a memo box and you will have a perfect gift to give your teacher.

We hope you gained some gift giving inspiration today. Whether you buy one item from this list, or get an assortment of items you are making a difference. Thank you for choosing to not only give something thoughtful, but give something that gives women the power of choice in their lives.
