Teacher Appreciation Week Gift Guide

Share thisShare on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on TumblrEmail this to someoneShare on Google+Share on LinkedIn

Once again, Teacher Appreciation Week is upon us. This is the time of year to think about your teacher (or your child’s teacher) and be thankful that teaching is their job and not yours.  This year, you can do better than simply buying a gift card. A rockstar teacher would appreciate something nice for the teacher’s desk, or maybe a nice rockstar keychain. Here are the best rockstar desk organization supplies out there:

Cassette tape wall pockets
Music Notes, Musical Instrument Colorful Paperclips (100 count)

 

Little B 100039 Decorative Paper Tape, Music Notes
Music notes, treble clef design tape

There are so many cool music themed desk organization and songwriting supplies out there, I had to give them their own page.

We know that teachers carry a lot of keys so a nice key chain or key fob will be well received. While keychains and key fobs have their own page, here is one of the rockstar favorites that your teacher really needs:

Guitar amp wall mounted key holder

Of course, many of us would rather just give a gift card and be done with it. There is nothing wrong with that. Teachers will appreciate you making the effort, they certainly expect that from their students!

Wine racks for the rockstar home

Share thisShare on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on TumblrEmail this to someoneShare on Google+Share on LinkedIn

You need a place to store your wine bottles anyway, a wine rack is a great way to show your rockstar personality.

Guitar wine bottle holders

6-bottle Electric Guitar wine rack. Though advertised as guitar shape, with 4 thick strings it can be a bass guitar also.

   

Cello wine rack – I like this one because it holds 12 bottles (a whole case)! It also has a beautiful patina. But wait – there’s more! This black cello holds even more!

Motorcycle wine bottle holders

   

Motorcycle boot wine bottle holder (also holds squared whiskey bottles)

Vintage motorcycle wine bottle holder

Dragon Skeleton motorcycle wine bottle holder. Reminds me of the cover of the album Painkiller from Judas Priest

 

 

Piano keyboard wine rack

14-bottle piano keyboard wine rack with 2 glass holder

Single wine bottle holders

Guitar wine bottle holder. Handmade from recycled metal.

I consider it a sign of success that I can dedicate a post to light switch plates and outlet covers with a guitar theme.  I have been curating Live Like A Rock Star long enough that there are enough guitar themed light switch plates and outlet covers for their own post.  Other instruments will have their own posts, too.  Click here for the entire collection of light switch plates and outlet covers.

Now’s the time of the evening that the band has a drink…

Cocktail anyone?

Depending on the type of rockstar you are (or live with), National Beer Day may not have been especially celebratory.  If you are having a rockin’ cocktail gathering or stocking your bar cart, here are some things to get you started.

Fender Stratocaster decanter set:

This set features the classic stratocaster shape on the decanter and two straight sided glasses.

I think these ice cube/stirrers shaped like guitars are especially fun.

If you are having a martini, here are some skull and crossbones martini glasses.

Personally, I think any 10-ounce martini glasses should come with a skull and crossbones warning.

More rockstar glassware

Maybe it is a beer-out-of-the-bottle night (or day) – some rockin’ bottle openers
