As the end of the year approaches, you might be thinking about gifts for your child’s school teacher, sports coach or dance teacher. Here are some ideas!
My kids always loved giving their teachers gifts when they were in primary school, but sometimes it was tricky to think of something they’d actually like! No teacher needs 25 mugs or hand creams, so here are some other ideas that will make them feel really appreciated.
Our pretty desktop calendar gives your child’s teacher an at-a-glance date reference they can keep on their desk.
The 2023 Desktop Calendar stands up by itself and includes lots of uplifting and motivating quotes so they can feel appreciated all year round.
a class gift
While this does take a bit of organising, giving a class gift is a great way to honour your teacher with one larger gift. If there is a class rep, this person can invite parents to contribute and organise the kids to sign a collective card. Popular choices are shopping centre gift vouchers, day spa vouchers, flowers or something that is special to your teacher.
A potted plant makes a lovely gift! You can get little ones at Bunnings, a florist or nursery.
Your child might like to hand paint a pot and write a phrase of gratitude such as ‘Thank you for helping me grow’, or wrap the pot with a little message attached.
Instead of buying flowers on the last morning of school, have an edible flower bouquet delivered to your home so your child can bring into school for their teacher.
Bright and colourful, they look gorgeous and might even last longer than fresh flowers (but probably not!)
