A Teacher Announces Disliked Gift - "And The One Teachers Really Want"

C. Heslop

Parents often show appreciation to school officials via presents. Unfortunately, these items are sometimes not the stuff teachers want, so an alleged teaching assistant shared a gift-giving guide.

Mel, whose TikTok name is @mellew06, posted the video, which got 432,500 views.

The clip shows Mel's face with a text overlay saying, "How I feel about certain teacher gifts with little to no explanation".

Here is what she displays in the video:

First up are gift cards from Amazon and Target to which the voiceover replies "yes". It's easy to see the appeal of a gift card, as teachers can choose their present or put the voucher towards a larger item. Mel then shows the present she dislikes: teacher-themed mugs. An image pops up of a white cup with a red apple, featuring 'world's best teacher' scrawled across the front. She also had the voiceover say "no" to fragrance sets. (source)

Interestingly, the video then shows a T-shirt that reads "teach, love, inspire". The voiceover declares is a '50/50' - showing that Mel might not be against all teacher-themed gifts. Her favorite present out of the lot is a personalized stapler and Sellotape holder - complete with the teacher's name and bright gold and pink glittery design. When this gift is shown, the audio says "yes and I don't care that it's impractical". (source)

Many, including teachers, criticized Mel for her gifting suggestions.

"Um wow! A teacher here and I am thankful for anything a child brings me.
"This makes me sad. I have been a teacher for 18 years and have gotten zero gifts. My families are just trying to keep their heads above water".
