Gifts for teachers. You want to give something that they will love, something that they won’t have got 30 others of this year, and something that shows you have made the effort and appreciate their hard work over the year with your children….
It can be hard to find that great gift, while keeping spending at a decent level.
So – I wanted to give some ideas to you that I love. Things that I have either already given over the time my daughter’s been at school, or things that I will be giving in the future.
I’ve tried to vary the prices so that there’s something for most budgets, but it’s a great idea to also join forces with other parents and get something together to keep costs reasonable while still giving something lovely.
The choice is yours, and the inspiration comes from me – enjoy – and I hope that it helps you cross “buy teachers gift” off your TO DO list a little quicker….
#1 – TOTE BAG
Giving something useful AND lovely is a big win in my book – so a personalised tote bag** would be perfect!
Teachers of course can carry books and things to and from school each and every day – so they could now do it with ease.
#2 – MUG
Everyone loves a mug – and this is one of my favourites**.
It’s slightly different from your usual teacher mugs, and is simple but gorgeous, and I think any teacher would be happy to receive it on the last day of term!
#3 – BOOKMARK
Again, something simple but useful that most teachers would love. A bookmark** that will last – and that has a personalised message on is a great idea!
#4 – NOTEPAD
This notepad** is gorgeous, and really useful for a teacher of course – whether used at school or at home!
#5 – KEYRING – MALE TEACHER!
This is a lovely keyring** for a male teacher. It can be personalised which would be a lovely touch too. It is often harder to find make teacher gifts which really isn’t fair in my opinion, and all too often we have to buy something less teacher related and more generic, so this keyring makes a nice change.
#6 – CLASSROOM RULES
Being a MASSIVE fan of word art (I don’t think there’s a room in my house without some!), I love this print **and think it would be a great addition to a classroom.
#7 – KEYRING – FEMALE TEACHER!
I love this keyring as it’s not personalised, but has all the qualities of a lovely teacher gift.
An apple (a must!), thank you, and a lovely tree. This would be really useful for a teacher to keep school related keys on!
#8 – CANDLE
I love, love, love this candle – it’s natural wax (something I always look for when buying candles), and looks lovely. It IS quite small (always check dimensions when you buy online as it can come as a surprise!), but would be a welcome addition in most teachers homes I would think.
#9 – PAMPER SET
A really useful and probably much needed treat for a teacher at the end of the year!.
You could make your own set from high street stores, or this one can be created to suit you (there are different sized sets available which is great if more than one of you want to join forces to get something larger).
There you have it – lots of great gifts for teachers with hopefully some things that maybe you hadn’t thought of before.
There are, of course, some other more generic presents which would also work really well and be loved – so I have included a few here too: –
- Vouchers – why not group together and get a voucher for a shop you know the teacher would like – they can then treat themselves over the holidays to something they need/want.
- Flowers – always a lovely idea, or why not get a plant as that will last longer!
- Homemade gifts – if your child is little then a homemade gift would be a lovely keepsake – I found this printable on Pinterest and loved the idea! You can download it for free here . Why not get everyone in the class to fill one out and give the teacher them all in a folder to keep…
- A lovely bottle of wine / something they love to eat – always a winner! Creating a little hamper makes it more special as well.
Do you have trouble buying for your childrens teachers?, do you like to do something unique when it comes to gifts for teachers?
