Gifts for a Spanish Teacher

Giving gifts to your favourite teachers is a great way to thank them for their hard work. While you've probably heard of giving apples to teachers, you may not have thought about giving subject-specific gifts to teachers. This tactic works especially well for Spanish teachers - there are many different Spanish-themed gifts that these language teachers would love. The best part is that many of the gift ideas can be used in the classroom to help students learn even more about the language and cultures behind it.

Spanish-Themed Cookbooks

Spanish-speaking countries each have long culinary histories ranging from tapas and mountain-cured ham in Spain to ceviche in Peru. Spanish teachers give lessons to their students on these countries; so giving Spanish teachers cookbooks from different Spanish-speaking countries is a great way to thank them for teaching students about these cultures. They might even prepare some dishes from the cookbooks to try in class.

Spanish Music and Movies

Many Spanish teachers incorporate Spanish music and movies into their curriculum. One way to help bolster their collections for in-class use is to give them Spanish CDs and movies. The type and genre you give is completely up to you, but consider giving a mix of classical and contemporary music and movies. For example, a CD filled with Spanish guitar classics is always a safe bet, and a new release Spanish movie might interest your Spanish teacher as well.

Restaurant Gift Tokens

Teachers enjoy a good night out on the town, just like everyone else. Great gifts to thank them for their hard work in the classroom are gift tokens to their favourite local ethnic restaurants. Deciding where to purchase gift tokens might be a challenge, but one way to decide is simply to ask your Spanish teacher what ethnic restaurants they like best.

Spanish Language Teaching Tools

Spanish teachers are always looking for new ways to engage their students in the classroom. A great gift idea is to provide teaching tools -- such as language-teaching computer software, Spanish books or visual learning aids like posters -- to help them teach students more effectively.
