If you’re wondering what to give a teacher at the end of the school year, then hopefully our top 5 picks below will provide you with some ideas to help you save time and put a smile on a teacher's face...
What is the best gift to give a teacher?
Often the best gift for a teacher is something that is meaningful, thoughtful, and useful. Knowing what to get them isn’t always straightforward. Our child’s teacher is sacred; they work tirelessly to help guide and educate our young ones through their early years into young adulthood. Here are the Top 5 gift ideas for teachers that will show your appreciation for their hard work, commitment and dedication:
#1 A Gift Card
Ok, so it might seem a little bland, but seriously, there is no better gift than the gift of choice! You might opt for a coffee card, amazon card, dining out card or other. Pair it up with a nice thank you card, and you will not disappoint!
#2 Personalised Teacher Gifts
The options for giving personalized gifts are almost limitless. Lunch bags, cups, pens, keyrings, notebooks, plant pots, wine glasses, socks, cushions, and more! You might choose to get something inscribed, or you could get your child to design something unique that is based on a drawing they have done. Either way, a personalised gift is a great idea, and it is something that can be treasured forever.
#3 Handmade Gifts
Not only are they fun to make, but they are also cost-effective and truly unique as well. Both you and your child can let your imagination go wild. They might sound a little bit corny, but these handmade ornaments, handpicked flowers and personal pictures are special gifts that teachers love to receive.
#4 Relaxation Package
We all enjoy some downtime and no one more so than a teacher! A relaxation package is a collection of relatively inexpensive items; such as hot chocolate, chocolate, bubble bath, a candle, face mask, a book or anything else you might associate with rest and relaxation. Giving the gift of tranquility to a teacher is something that is always going to be well received.
#5 A Gift Hamper
We may be a little biased here, but a hamper will certainly make a great teacher's gift. You don’t have to worry about whether they’ll like a specific item because they are lots of different things included with the added benefit of having 2 gifts in 1 (once the treats inside are finished, the wicker hamper basket will remain long into the future for other uses!). A hamper might include chocolate & fudge, some vegan and vegetarian treats or even some American classics.
However you choose to say thank you to your child’s teacher this summer; whether you opt for a personal token of appreciation, a chocolate gift hamper or something handmade together with your child; it is never expected but always gratefully received.
