Forget yet another mug or impersonal gift card, these 20 Gifts Ideas for Teachers are budget-friendly and perfect for the special teachers in your child’s life.
Teacher Gift Ideas
We tend to do themed gifts for my daughter’s teachers – last year we did a “Treat Yo’Self” box for Christmas with yummy hot chocolates, a fondue pot with fondue chocolate and some dippable treats for the fondue. For the end of the year, we put together “Movie Night Boxes” with a movie gift certificate, popcorn, popcorn toppings, large boxes of candy, a favorite movie and a bottle of New Zealand wine all wrapped up in a popcorn bowl. While these were awesome gifts, they were definitely quite a bit of effort to put together.
I polled my teacher friends for their must-haves to include in this list – and (being teachers) they mostly requested items for the classroom! I think a combination of classroom items and something special for the teacher is the perfect gift.
Below are some thoughtful gifts for either your child’s teachers or friends and family that teach. I tried to include a combination of hip items and items for more traditional teachers. One common thread was sturdy bags, stationary, and water bottles.
(And if your teacher is a huge coffee fan, you should definitely check out my 20 Gifts for Coffee Lovers.)
