Christmas is just around the corner, and you want to give your child’s school teachers, or child care teachers, a little something to show how much you, and your child, appreciate them. Although these teachers have gotten to know your child well, you probably know very little about their interests or hobbies. This can make it difficult to find the perfect gift to give to them during the holiday season. I’ve got your back! Check out this list of Christmas gift ideas to give to your child’s teachers.
GIFT IDEAS FOR TEACHERS
1. Gift Cards
Everyone loves to receive gift cards! Gift cards to Tim Hortons, Second Cup, Starbucks are sure to get used. Keep in mind; you’re shopping for a teacher, so you know a gift card to Staples, Michael’s, or any other school supplies and craft store are safe, too! You can’t go wrong with a gift card to go to the movies, out for dinner, or to a popular body product store, either!
2. A Book with a Homemade Bookmark
You may not know the teachers’ favorite authors or book genres, but this can be a bit of a fun guessing game. Buying a cookbook or a children’s books that can be shared in the classroom are nice options, as well! You could also choose a book that has craft ideas or science experiments to give your child’s teacher some new ideas. Check out these nice DIY bookmarks your child can add to the gift.
3. Fancy Notebook, Day Planner, or Calendar
Have you noticed that teachers are always planning and writing things down? They are sure to appreciate the thoughtful gift of organization this year. Your child can even make this cute handmade pom pen to go with the gift!
4. Adult Colouring Book
Colouring books for adults have been quite the trend for the past few years. Colouring is apparently quite relaxing and therapeutic, just what a teacher needs.
5. Tea, Hot Chocolate, Treats
Chocolate, candy, cookies, yes, please! This is a simple and popular gift idea, and most importantly- it’s delicious! Whether the treats are homemade or store bought, your child’s teacher will know you appreciate them this time of year.

8. Candles/ Scent Diffuser
I don’t know about everyone else, but I love receiving beautiful scented candles and anything that smells good. If your child is feeling very creative, he/she could design a personalized candle holder like this one.
9. Flowers/ Plants
Plants and flowers are sure to spruce up a teacher’s home or classroom. Even better, your child could decorate and personalize a beautiful pot for the greenery you give. This “thanks for helping me grow” pot is just one of many ideas you could do!
10. Cozy blanket, Slippers, Socks
Comfortable things that every person needs, especially teachers! The best part about buying socks and slippers is that you can get funky ones that will be sure to make the teacher in your life smile.
11. Hand Sanitizer, Hand Soaps, or other Body Products
With all the germs and reoccurring colds that teachers are always battling, a gift from somewhere like Bath & Body Works would be appreciated. Beautiful smelling hand sanitizers, hand soaps, and hand creams will help your teacher stay healthy and moisturized this time of year!
