Teacher Gift Ideas
Are you still looking for the perfect present to give to your child’s teacher? Here are some easy and thoughtful gifts to express your gratitude and appreciation for all they do.
Teacher’s Supply Box: Many teachers have to buy supplies for their own classroom throughout the year. This Christmas, try stocking up their room with a basket filled with classroom essentials. Here are a few ideas of what to add:
- Hand Sanitizer
- Post It Notes
- Lysol Wipes
- Hand Soap
- Glue Sticks
Volunteer: Volunteering is the most valuable gift you can give a teacher. Try volunteering your time by planning a party, helping out around the classroom, or reading a book to the kids. Make a “parent coupon” and go into the classroom and share your talent with the class!
Framed Student Art: Giving a framed child’s art work is a great gift. Teachers work with kids because they love to, so handmade art is a wonderful gift they’ll treasure.
Kid Coupons: Have your child think of ways they can help out around the classroom. Try putting a list together with other parents too! It’s a great way for the entire class to give back and offer help throughout the year.
Order a Magazine for the Class:The gift that keeps on giving! Order a magazine that will educate and benefit every student.
Gift Cards: Giving a gift card is always a safe choice. Teachers always end up spending a lot of their own money on things needed for the classroom. They’ll love this thoughtful idea. Consider a bookstore, office supply store, or even a grocery store.
Healthy Snack Basket: Help teachers stay healthy by making them a basket filled with an assortment of healthy treats. Try including granola bars, assorted nuts, and fruit.
Personal Note: A handwritten Christmas card from a child expressing thanks and showing what they have learned is a wonderful and heartfelt way to remind a teacher how valuable they are.
