XMAS TIP 3: Teacher Christmas Present Ideas

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

Lovely teacher gift ideas for Christmas. A small thoughtful present is a great to way to say thank you to your child’s teacher for all their amazing contributions and hard work over the past year.

Teachers play such an important role in our children’s lives, and their job isn’t necessarily an easy one,  with all the many differing aspects of the work they do.  I always think it’s lovely to give a thank you present to my children’s teachers acknowledging all their hard work over the past year and how much they have contributed to our kids. This year especially has been an unusual one, with all the changes teachers had to make to help our kids transition with the periods of online and home learning. So a little thank you gift is a nice way to acknowledge their efforts, something thoughtful they can use at work, something fun, or a sweet handmade item from your child is always nice.

This is a gift idea easy enough for your child to make for their teacher all on their own. Citrus Bath Salts are a thoughtful gift, and handmade items are always appreciated I think because of the care and time put into it! Teachers definitely deserve to relax and rest after the school year and a lovely warm bath with nice-smelling bath salts is a perfect way to start.
