GIFTS FOR TEACHERS IN AN UNPRECEDENTED YEAR
Teachers are among the unsung heroes of 2020, with the challenging job of managing classrooms, students, and lesson plans in the unexpected virtual classrooms that exist today. Gone for the most part (at least for now) are the days of rows of desks and the smell of chalkboards as students and teachers transition into this new online environment. Show your appreciation for your teacher’s dedication with Minted’s collection of thoughtful teacher gifts. Many of our gift options are unique and customizable. For example, create a personalized calendar with a collection of photos celebrating each student they teach or customize a bag or pouch with your teacher’s name on it in a custom foil-pressed leather tag. Let your imagination run wild, as some gift options we offer can include the school name, mascot, or football cheer!

- Framed Photo Art: What better way to remind your teacher of their students and classroom environment than with photo art gifts arranged by independent artists.
