Best Coffee Gifts For Teacher Appreciation
Let’s face it, most everyone and almost every teacher enjoys a great cup of coffee. I can’t imagine starting my day without it and I am sure your favorite teacher will appreciate your thoughtful gift idea.
After all, they are with your kids for most of the day. No, of course, they are not bad, but with almost 20 kids in a classroom, that is a whole lot of love to give at once. So, let’s shower our teachers with the best of the best coffee gifts.
I have spent some time researching a great round-up of the funniest, most functional, and best-tasting hot beverages for your coffee-loving teacher.
And with a wide range of coffee gift ideas, I am sure you will find one within your budget.
Best Gifts for Coffee-Loving Teachers
Coffee is a year-round ritual, but there’s no better time than the holidays to give a coffee-centric gift to someone who takes their morning cup seriously.
The First Cup Difference
Arriving at school with the simple gift of providing your teacher with his or her’s first-morning cup. On the way to school, stop at one of your local coffee shops and grab of joe.
Have your child decorate the cup first with a quick message of thanks. A few dollars can go a long way. Showing your thanks can start with thoughtful gestures.
Not sure of your teacher’s performance? Start with a basic black cup of coffee and get a second cup with a few extras, non-dairy creamers, and a few packets of sweetener.
Or step out of the box and make a delish brew at home.
Travel in Style Coffee Gift Idea
No true coffee lover can go about their day without a reliable travel mug. It is a must-have for teachers. That’s because the not-so-great ones can leak, fail to keep coffee warm, or be tricky to clean.
Teachers are never at their desks for long and travel often with their students.
Contigo is a trusted family brand. In fact, my kids prefer their water bottles. They come highly rated and are reasonably priced.
Dress up Your Teacher
Coffee is a message we can all get behind. And this t-shirt is a fun way to show your teacher that you pay attention to his/her favorite pastime – drinking coffee.
Perfect for teachers of every grade and subject! This t-shirt makes a coffee-loving statement whether they are worn in school or at the supermarket.
You can purchase this exact one off Etsy or choose to search for a different style.
A Coffee Mug That Shows Teacher Appreciation and Love
Teachers often receive coffee mugs filled with candy as gifts, but this one says it all in one place. Being a teacher is hard work and while we are off caring, for our families, they often get forgotten.
Show your care with this adorable coffee cup from Amazon. And instead of filling it with candy, fill it with a small travel-size bag of coffee.
Just Add Water
Give your teacher the gift of coffee at anytime. Serve them with the best single-serve coffee that only requires water.
Single-serve steeped coffee is like instant coffee, but way better. Instead of stirring coffee directly into hot water, micro-ground beans are placed in a tea sachet which allows for better extraction of oils, flavors, and acids.
All you have to do is saturate the bag in hot water, dunk it for a few seconds, then let it steep for five minutes. Easy, delish, and affordable.
Coffee That Supports Community
Giving your teacher the gift of coffee to drink goes without saying, but how about giving them the gift of coffee that not only tastes good but is making a community difference?
Fire Department Coffee is run by active and retired firefighters, including our operations officer and chief coffee roaster.
You can gift your teacher with a onetime purchase of their most popular coffee, original medium roast, or a subscription to their coffee of the month club. And the coffee is delicious!
Scents of Coffee
Because there’s nothing quite like the smell of fresh coffee…well, whenever.
While the idea of waking up to the aromas of your favorite brew is enchanting, for most people, the scent is a favorite not only in the morning but really any time of day.
No cream or no sugar is needed! This black coffee candle from Etsy is aromatic and bitter, made from a blend of soy wax and premium scented oils. This candle burns for over 50 hours.
Socks that Send a Message
Let your teacher enjoy a few moments of being comfy in the teacher’s lounge or at their desk.
Give them a pair of socks that says it all. “Coffee first”. The lettering on the bottom of their socks is no slip and can be purchased from Citrusy Boutique on Amazon.
A necklace that takes caffeine pride to another level
You don’t have to be a chemistry teacher to appreciate this unique way of carrying coffee close to your heart. Yep, this necklace features the chemical structure of caffeine!
How fun and unique this gift would be for your favorite teacher.
Coffee as a Sweet Treat
Don’t let your teacher go without. Towards the end of the day, coffee can run low, but not if they have a bag of coffee candy tucked away in their drawer.
They may be a few hours before you can refill, but not to worry—in a pinch, these hard candies get them through. They’re made with real coffee!

An Easier Option for Teacher Appreciation
Gift cards! This works especially well if you are not sure what to get your coffee-addicted teacher. You never know if your teacher is actually drinking coffee or their favorite caffeinated soda in their teacher’s mug.
Get a gift card from a local coffee shop or the one nearest the school with a drive-through. Even those teachers who don’t drink coffee can still use them to pick up a sweet treat.
Gift cards always make a great gift option for teachers’ appreciation.
