INSIDE: Gift ideas for the Spanish teachers in your life (or yourself!)
Maybe this is just me, but I have a lot of amazing Spanish teachers in my life and I love gift giving, so I thought I'd give you some of my ideas that I've come up for myself and the teachers in my life!
1. Selena Quintanilla Vinyl
This is the perfect gift for the Spanish teacher in your life that might also collect vinyls and/or has a record player in their homes. I know I'm excited to jam to these tunes on a super cool, purple vinyl. I asked my in-laws for this gift and can't wait to listen to it live!
2. Ember Mug
This is a super fun techy gift for your warm beverage loving teacher friends. This mug connects to an app and you control the EXACT temp of your mug so that your coffee or tea never gets too cold or hot. As someone that is constantly heating up my coffee I love the idea of NEVER having to it again.
3. Fountains of Silence
This was one of my favorite reads of 2020. This book takes place during the Spanish Civil War in Madrid, Spain. It's got everything-- mystery, suspense, romance, historical fiction, etc. So if you have a friend that loves to read this would be a great book. It's even available IN Spanish! I know I love getting books in Spanish so I can practice by reading in my free time.
4 . Handmade Cute Masks
I love these masks and so will the Spanish teacher in your life. They fit great and have super cute designs AND you're supporting a fellow Spanish teacher and small business. Let's be safe and stylish!
5. Trendy Graphic Tees
Cost: approx. $25
These tees are soooo cute and comfortable and AGAIN you get to support another teacher along the way. There are lots of cute tees with lots of different sayings and you truly can't go wrong with.
6. Cookbooks! (Spain) (Tex-Mex)
I lived in Spain, so for me the traditional Spanish food cookbook is something I love because it's full of recipes my host mom and friends made for me regularly. I've also linked a modern tex-mex cookbook with lots of popular favorites, but really you could do a cookbook from any country and for your amateur chef friends it would be PERFECT!
7. Curated Goodie Bags
These are so cute and perfect for present giving at a distance. The bags come filled with lots of fun Latinx goodies and always, always super cute wrapping/packaging. I love my stickers and jewelry and other fun things I've gotten in other goodie bags in the past!
8. Hola Bonita Mug
If I had a dollar for every time I see this mug on #TeacherInstagram I would be able to at least buy this mug, but you can't blame people. It's SUPER cute and I love the little parrot inside of the mug. It makes me smile every time I use it.
9. Candy Boxes
There are lots of site that will do different kinds of curated candy boxes and this one is a Spicy Mexican Candy box. It's full of lots of fun different types of candy and would be super fun to try or enjoy again with friends and family during the holidays.
10. Your Love and Support
It's hard to be a Spanish teacher this year. It's hard to be a teacher this year. Just continue to be a support system to the teachers in your life and it you're wanting to take a step further consider giving money or TPT giftcards to your friends, becuase we all need the grace and understanding that our time is valuable. Take care of yourselves friends and have a great gift giving season.
