Loaf Pan

You know what pairs well with a relaxing day of reading? Baking bread. It’s your English teacher’s dream Saturday. We like to add a personal touch by gifting the pan with a loaf of homemade bread or a cookbook.

Pumpkin Pie With Spiced Whipped Cream

For the Math Teacher

Pie Pan

In our experience, math teachers and puns go hand in hand. Give the teacher who threw a big Pi Day celebration a Pie Pan to help them keep the math party going forever. If we’re doing the math correctly—you’ll be their favorite student.

For the Music Teacher

Guitar Mini Skillet 

The Guitar Mini Skillet is the perfect way to thank your teacher for giving you a fun break from the books during music class. It’s the ideal size for hanging in their classroom, but it can also be used to prepare individual treats like cookies or brownies.

Day of the Dead

For the Art Teacher

Sugar Skull Skillet 

The Sugar Skull Skillet is special because it was designed in partnership with artist Lourdes Villagómez to showcase the decorative skulls that are traditionally created for Day of the Dead. The skillet is a functional piece of art that looks just as cool hanging on your wall as it does cooking your favorite dishes on the stove.
