Teacher Appreciation Day Gift Ideas

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

Thoughtful and gorgeous gift ideas (and a few craft ideas too!) that are perfect for your child’s teacher on Teacher Appreciation Day.

If ever there was a year to thank your child’s teachers for going that extra mile, it’s 2020! Teacher Appreciation Day is fast approaching (Friday the 30th of October) and is the perfect opportunity for parents to thank the teachers for all the extra time and effort they’ve put into our babies this year.

Every teacher is different, so we’ve broken these gift ideas down into six different categories in the hope that you’ll be able to find something that’s perfectly suited to your child’s fabulous teacher.

Gifts For Plant-Loving Teachers

Get crafty and add your own touch to a pot of herbs or some pretty flowers with fabric, ribbon or even a painted mason jar. Another fun option is to get your green-thumb (and maybe tea-loving) teacher a Grow Your Own Tea Kit.

Gifts Made Just For Teachers

Let the teachers know that they’ve made a mark on your children with one of these fun and funky prints. These are also great for last minute Teacher Appreciation Day gift ideas – simply purchase and print!

Handmade Gifts For Teachers

Mason jars are great for homemade gift ideas! Let the kids get to work on making some fun pencil holders or pretty containers that they can fill with lollies (check out these craft ideas and more here). Another great option is a craft kit that includes everything your children will need to make movable wall art, a Shrinkies charm bracelet or even some foil art (check out our full range of DIY kits here).

Personalised Gift Ideas

Nothing says “you’re an awesome, wonderful and caring teacher” like a personalised gift that literally spells that out. These printables are a very affordable way to give a thoughtful gift at the last minute – simply purchase, print and frame. For something a bit different you could also personalise a smoothie or coffee cup (see below). Use the code ‘Teacher’ at checkout to get a FREE personalised label!

Gifts For Arty Teachers

Give your child’s teacher something that they can do themselves. Arty teachers who love to get crafty would love one of our Diamond Dotz kits – they’re relaxing, easy, and pretty enough to pop in a frame and put on the wall when complete. Jigsaw puzzles are another great option, and my goodness there are some gorgeous ones kicking about at the moment!
