Gifts Cards for Teachers

Have you purchased gifts for your teachers and bus drivers yet? If you are still wondering what to give, a gift card is a great option. They are not the most personal gift but they are the most practical. I recently asked a few teachers what kind of gift cards they like to receive and here are a few they mentioned. A couple of the companies I had not heard of before and sounded like great options.


gift cards 

  • Zionsville Chamber of Commerce - Chamber gift certificates give your teacher the option to use it at over 50 businesses in Zionsville which includes restaurants, stores, service providers and spas.

  • Amazon - Amazon gift cards can be emailed, printed and found at most big-box retailers.

  • Teachers Pay Teachers - I had never heard of this company before but it looks like a great resource where everyone can benefit. It is a website where teachers can share lesson plans and resources that have proven to work in the classroom. Gift cards can be printed or emailed.

  • Target or Meijer - Obviously Target and Meijer offer a wide variety of products and is a practical choice. You can send the gift card by email, send over mobile, mail or just purchase on location.

  • Lakeshore Learning - Lakeshore Learning offers products that are geared towards learning in a fun and imaginable way. The closest store is on 86th Street. Gift cards can be emailed, mailed or purchased on location.

  • United Art and Education - This is another store with products geared to make education fun. The closest store is in Castleton. You can either order gift cards online and they can be mailed free of charge or purchase on location.

  • LOCAL Nail Salons and Spas - It's hard work being a teacher! Give them a gift where they can feel pampered and escape any and all stresses in life.


If you still worried your gift card isn't personal enough, add a thoughtful note from you and/or your child telling them how much you appreciate all the hard work they put into teaching our kids. Words of appreciation are never lost on someone! 

Happy gift giving!
