Best Gifts for Wonderful Teachers
Blog Categories

Festive gifts show your teacher a little love for all that they have done for your kids this year. Teachers often go above and beyond the call of duty to guide and educate your children and it makes their efforts worth it when parents and students express their appreciation. You don’t have to spend a lot of money; just a little thoughtfulness and care is all you need to give a gift that makes your teacher feel special. Whatever you decide to get for your favorite teachers, make sure it’s personal.

Gift cards

Vouchers and gift cards allow your favorite teachers to buy things they really need or want. Get your children to create handmade cards for their favorite educators and pop the gift cards inside.

Personalized stationary

Always a classy gift, give your teacher their very own personalized stationary for letters, notes and cards.

Teacher’s survival kit

From coffee to chocolate, every teacher can use a little survival kit for those early mornings. Include a coffee travel mug with specialty coffees, cookies, chocolates and other treats that can help a teacher through a tough morning.

Good books

Most teachers will enjoy a good read. You can buy books for the classroom so that they have a little more variety in the reading corner or get them some books you know they will enjoy. Not sure what your teacher reads? Buy a gift voucher from a local or online book store.

Holiday cookies

Have fun with your kids and create a personal gift for your favorite teachers by baking a batch of festive cookies. You can bake a few batches of different cookies if you have a number of teachers to think of. Then you can give them a selection of treats to enjoy over the holidays.

Plants

Living gifts are a great way to make a lasting impression. Plants not only reduce stress, they also improve indoor air quality.

Movie theater gift card

Who doesn’t like going to the movies? Give your teachers a chance to unwind and relax in the new year with a gift voucher to a local cinema.

Monogrammed gifts

Get your kids to monogram items with their teacher’s name or initials. Scarves and hats, handkerchiefs, coffee mug cozies, and mittens will all look better with a little handy work.

Candles

You can make these yourself with a little beeswax and a mold. Making candles is a great holiday activity and they make brilliant gifts.

Spa gifts

This festive season, everyone can give a little love to their mistle-toes! Give gift vouchers to local spas or make up your own little kit with bath and spa products so that your teachers can give themselves a little pampering.

The most important factor in your holiday gift to the teachers who do so much for you is personalization. Get your kids to pick out gifts and write their own cards and notes that express their appreciation for a job well done.
