Teachers appreciate any gift, but there’s a reason so many “world’s best teacher” mugs end up on thrift store shelves. We have an adorable way to put a spin on this classic teacher gift with something they just might use. Starbucks custom cups!
Whether you’re shopping for another teacher or yourself, there are a ton of fun (and budget-friendly) designs to choose from on Etsy. Love glitter? Disney fan? Obsessed with astrology? The options are endless—but we’ve rounded up a few of our favorites that we think you’ll love, too. Plus, most sellers allow you to customize the 24-ounce cups with a name, so you won’t have to worry about losing track of it in the teachers’ lounge. Pair one with a gift card to a teacher’s favorite coffee shop for an extra special gesture.
