Back to School Gifts for Students, Teachers, and Parents

Going back to school looks a lot different nowadays. For some kids, back to school means back to campus while for others it means learning from home. Still others will do a little of both and many don’t yet know for sure how they’ll be taught. Parents are gearing up to potentially add part-time home school teacher to their regular job. Teachers (thank you to each and every one of them!) are preparing to impart knowledge in a different way from what they’re used to. Their students might be in a classroom rearranged to allow social distance, outside in a newly-formed outdoor learning space, online, or all three. And everyone is focused on health and safety more than ever before.

As we get ready to head back to school, we all need encouragement as we embrace new challenges and try out new methods of teaching, learning, socializing, and parenting (maintaining sanity is considered a win!). To that end, we’ve curated some welcome-back-to-school ideas and back-to-school giveaway ideas that are sure to help everyone step into the back to school season with an open mind and a positive outlook.

Back-to-School Giveaway Ideas for Teachers

For the teachers who are getting ready to roll with the punches, field questions from students, thoughtfully consider endless suggestions from parents, and deal with ambiguity all around, these gifts are sure to lend a sense of calm to the back-to-school season.

As a result of COVID-19, for most of us school started to look different months and months ago. Since then students have found an upside-down learning environment kind of exciting, and also missed sports and seeing fellow students. Parents have enjoyed extra time with their kids and also considered adopting them out. Teachers have embraced online learning and considered an abrupt career change as well. Now, as we prepare to head back to school, it is with new perspective and wisdom. We’re all in this together and a few back-to-school promotional products can help keep community top of mind.
