US Teachers Appreciation week 2024 runs from Monday May 6th 2024 – Friday May 10th 2024 in the USA with Teacher Appreciation Day 2024 falling on May 7th 2024. I’ve found some thoughtful last minute gifts for both male and female teachers to help you celebrate your teachers.

These gift picks are all under $50, with lots under $20 as well to spoil your teacher(s).
