Teacher Christmas Gift Ideas #HolidayGiftGuide

Every year teachers are plagued with receiving gifts they cannot use, have no idea how to use it, or have an abundance of them. This Christmas, surprise your child’s teacher (and yourself) with a gift other than empty coffee mugs or picture frames. They will cherish these gifts.

A Survival Kit

Think about how your child’s teacher comes into class much unprepared for the day. They could be faced with screaming children, piles of homework thrown on their desk, and dodging sneezy little children all around them. Help arm your child’s teacher this Christmas with a cute and handy survival kit. You can get as creative as you want, but the essentials are:

  • Caffeine such as tea, coffee, or soda
  • Sweets such as Twizzlers or chocolates

Put these items together in a gift bag or gift box with a pretty bow. The teacher is sure to be thrilled to receive such useful and wanted items.

Book of Poems

If you have older children, you may grow tired of giving gift cards every year. You can still treat your teen’s teachers to something they can appreciate. English teachers, especially, would enjoy a book of poems. Ask your teen what authors their teacher talks about or quotes often.

Place the book in a Christmas cellophane bag and possibly add in that gift card that they are accustomed to receiving. Additionally, a card to the local coffee shop close to the school is a great way for them to grab a cup of tea or coffee as they head home to read.

Gift Certificates for Help

Does your child’s teacher send notes home each week asking for help in the classrooms? If so, answer them with a homemade gift certificate this Christmas. You can volunteer time to help during class with reading to the kids or helping organize the classroom when the school year ends. Your older kids can stay after school to help organize as well. Create a certificate on the computer and turn it into a PDF, then email it to the teacher, so they do not lose it. This gift is not only thoughtful, but costs you nothing but time.

What gifts do you give to your child’s teacher?
