20+ Teacher Gift Ideas

Say thankyou to that special teacher & support local!

The end of the school year is swiftly approaching, and our kids’ teachers work so hard. So, when it comes time to show them a little appreciation, here are some suggestions on how to say “thank you”.

  1. Gift Vouchers – everyone loves receiving a gift card to spend on something they want
  2. Candles – something for them to relax and unwind to
  3. Plants – they last longer than flowers and add a little extra touch to a room
  4. Personalised Diary & Pen – it’s always nice to start a new year with new stationery
  5. Mugs – for those endless cups of coffee or tea
  6. Insulated Tumbler – for when they need to take their coffee to go!
  7. Christmas Bauble – a little Christmas magic goes a long way
  8. Cookie/Cupcake Gift Box – who doesn’t love yummy treats?!
  9. Tote Bag – something practical
  10. Personalised Pencil Case – pens always go walkabout!
