These warm and decadent cookies are just as delicious and chewy as their favorite chocolate chip recipe, but with a twist: they’re shaped like shot glasses! Perfect for filling with milk, ice cream, or even something a little more grown-up, these glasses make for the perfect treat at the end of a long day of shaping the next generation.
The “Thank You” Cookie Shot Assortment comes with a half-dozen Cookie Shots in some of our most mouthwatering flavors like chocolate chip, double chocolate, churro, and red velvet (yum!). Even better, some of the shots are also appropriately decorated with “thank you” and “appreciate you” edible images to express just how grateful you are for all the hard work that they’ve done during the school year.
For the ultimate gift to present to your teacher at the end of the school year, these graduation-themed Cookie Shots definitely fit the bill. This DIY decoration kit comes with six soft, scrumptious Cookie Shots and six accompanying edible graduation-themed decorations and sprinkles to create the perfect “shot” for toasting the end of a long and successful school year.
Apple Pie Stuffed Cookies
Fun fact: did you know that the tradition of students giving teachers apples started in the American frontier when students brought these abundant crops to their teachers to show their appreciation for all the hard work they’ve done? If you’re looking for a fun and unique twist to the age-old tradition of gifting your teacher an apple, look no further than these drool-worthy Apple Pie Stuffed Cookies from Dirty Cookie! These ridiculously decadent cookies are made with a cinnamon-sugar cookie base and filled with a sweet apple pie filling, making them the ultimate treat for any teacher who just needs to kick back with something rich and delicious.
What about a grown-up twist on a schoolyard favorite? These PB&J stuffed cookies are the perfect cheeky nod to everyone’s favorite elementary school sandwich: each bite is packed with peanut butter chips and fruity jelly, all wrapped in one unique cookie that’s sure to be devoured with gratitude.
If you can’t pick just one (and trust us, when it comes to cookies, we get it), take your teacher gift to the next level and build a half-dozen! Tweak your gift box to perfectly match your teacher’s favorite tastes. Choose from all of the delicious Dirty Cookie flavors including Nutella Chocolate Chip, White Chocolate Cookie Butter, Red Velvet Cheesecake, Strawberry Shortcake, Peanut Butter & Jelly, Pumpkin Cheesecake, and Apple Pie.
Other great gifts for teachers
Want a little something else to go along with those delicious cookies? Here are some more ideas for treating your favorite teacher:
A gift card to their favorite coffee shop.
Teachers are up early, making it happen for our kids before the rest of us are even awake, which means that a gift card to their favorite coffee shop is definitely something that they’ll appreciate from the bottom of their early-rising hearts. Honestly, any coffee-related gift is probably going to be a winner for the teacher in your life who needs a strong sip of java before coming into the classroom, so a customized mug, artisan coffee blend, or insulated thermos are all good ideas here as well.
A beautiful potted plant.
They’ve nurtured the seeds of learning in your child’s mind, so what better way is there to repay that favor than with a real-life plant of their own? Add some pizazz and life to their classroom with an easy-to-care-for potted plant like a pothos, snake plant, or succulent. Bonus points: these will last longer than a bouquet of flowers, so it makes for the perfect gift that they can enjoy all year long.
They probably go through a ton of stationery throughout the school year, from sending notes to parents to delivering missives around the school. So to make sure that everyone knows exactly who the notes are from (and to ensure that it doesn’t get mixed up with all the other random papers in their office) give them a stationery set that’s personalized with their name! To really take it up a notch, you can also get a set of customized pens or pencils so that they never misplace their favorites even when they’re letting students borrow.
Books you know they’d love.
Show your teacher how much you’re paying attention with a meaningful book that speaks to their interests! Think about the subject they teach, as well as other hobbies and interests that they might have spoken about during the school year, and find an interesting book that speaks to those subjects. This is a great way to repay some of the knowledge that they’ve given you throughout the year and help them unwind and relax at the end of a long school year.
A hand-made card.
Sometimes, there’s nothing quite as meaningful as a handmade card from their favorite student! Let your kids show off all of the art skills they’ve learned from their teacher by crafting a sweet card, then have them write a message that speaks to all the times that they’ve shared together during the school year.
Teachers are some of the most important people in your children’s lives. So there’s no gift quite like the sweet, sweet gift of gourmet cookies to top off your favorite teacher’s school year on the right note!
