Holiday Gift Ideas for Teachers
As we celebrate the holiday season it’s wonderful to show gratitude to the people in our lives, including our child’s teacher or caregiver. A small, thoughtful gift can be a great way to show appreciation for the work he or she does and the care they give your child. Stumped as to what to give? Here our Family Room bloggers share their favorite holiday gift ideas for teachers:
Teacher Holiday Gift Ideas
Aili: “This year, I am keeping my shopping to “small businesses” so I am pulling together a “pamper me” box courtesy of some really great local vendors. So far I have some all natural skin care, homemade caramels, and cozy socks… but I am on the hunt for more!”
Emily: “For teacher holiday gifts, I try to pay attention to what our teachers have said they like outside of work, or notice if they have a coffee-a-day habit. I then try to find gift cards that are appropriate. They are always then delivered in a handmade card from my child.”
Laura: “Last year I gave my daughter’s infant teachers Dunkin’ Donuts gift cards along with cozy, non-slip slippers. Shoes are not allowed in the infant classroom so they often have slippers to keep their feet warm, especially in the winter months here in New England! I also gave a little something to the support staff as they cover breaks and sick days! I do a breakfast or lunch that the team can all enjoy.”
Marisa: “A personalized tumbler with a coffee shop gift card. Or a nicely framed class photo with an Amazon or Shutterfly gift card (my son’s teachers love pictures!). Or new books for the teacher’s classroom along with a Target gift card.”
Editor’s Note: And if you think your child’s teacher might enjoy a sweet treat he or she can share (if they chose to!), here’s another awesome idea.
