Teachers are awesome, vital, and important, which is why we need to celebrate the teachers in our lives. Fetch is an amazing way to make those teachers feel special. Oftentimes, if you’re consistently snapping those receipts, you’ve got enough points to get a lil’ gift card for some coffee, so why not send that to the teacher in your life?

What is World Teachers’ Day?

World Teachers’ Day is an international day held annually on the 5th of October to celebrate the work of teachers. Established in 1994, it commemorates the signing of recommendations by the International Labour Organization and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization.

World Teachers’ Day is a day to celebrate how teachers are transforming education but also to reflect on the support they need to fully deploy their talent and vocation, and to rethink the way ahead for the profession globally.

When is World Teachers’ Day?

World Teachers’ Day is celebrated on October 5th every year.

It’s important to understand that every teacher is different, but what we do know about most teachers is they LOVE coffee and Amazon. Consider treating the teachers in your life with some gift cards towards their morning coffee or help them get some things on their classroom supply list with an Amazon gift card

If you’re into the more sentimental gifts, some examples below might fit best:

  1. Thank-You Note
    • Tell the teacher why they matter to you in your own words. Pen to paper is always a great way to show you care.
  2. Personalized Stationery
    • Teachers always need to take notes, so get them some personalized stationary to make it special. (Hopefully, these won’t get used to write up detention slips.)
  3. Personalized Tote Bags
    • For my Cricut fans out there, get a nice tote bag and personalize it for your favorite teacher.
  4. Fiddle Fig Plant
    • It’s important to see green things when you’re in a classroom all day. Bring nature to the classroom and let your favorite teacher enjoy a beautiful classroom plant
  5. Gifts for the classroom
    • Maybe the room needs some new markers, a new easel, or a nice pencil cup. Take a peek around the classroom and think about what you’d like to add!
