Do you know a hardworking teacher that deserves a thank you? There’s definitely some amazing and inspiring educators out there, and it’s rewarding to recognise them for all the effort that they put into supporting our kids throughout the year. If you’re looking for a way to show your appreciation, we’d recommend a small but meaningful gift.
Of course, choosing a gift for a teacher can be challenging when you don’t know what they’re interested in outside of the classroom!
Luckily, we’ve got some great teacher gift ideas to help you express your gratitude. Browse our list below to find the perfect gift.
1. The Mug, A Classic.
Want to get your child’s teacher something cute but practical? Then a 'Best Teacher Ever' mug should be your top choice. It’s a small token of gratitude that will put a massive smile on their face because it will make them feel appreciated every day of the week.
A nice sized coffee mug is something that they will be able to keep in the classroom or breakroom to use on a daily basis, and it’s also something that they can show off around the school yard.
If your childs’ teacher is known for having a bit of a sweet tooth, spoil them with one of our Chocolate Gift hampers!
This hamper contains chocolate coated macadamias made by Byron Bay chocolate artisans, Byron Bay cookies, dark chocolate covered Wallaby Bites made from tasty nuts, seeds and fruit, coconut Bliss Balls and Sweet & Salty peanuts!
It’s sure to be a classroom favourite (although you may want to hide this one from the kids).
3. A Bit Of Pamper
After a long year in the classroom, teachers deserve some time to relax and you can help them do that by giving them bath and skincare items as a gift.
Our Pamper hamper contains all the essentials for a self-care session, including Saltie Soul exfoliant, hand and nail repair cream from Sanctum, a hemp seed oil eye gel to moisture and a tin of magic beans with affirmations inscribed on them that they can plant ahead of the new school year.
4. Snacks, Snacks, Snacks..
Almost everyone will appreciate gourmet treats and snacks as a gift, so our Gourmet Bites Gift hamper is always a safe bet if you want to impress.
It contains both sweet and savoury snacks, so there will definitely be plenty of yummy goodies inside for teachers to either enjoy alone or share out around the classroom.
With Brookfarm nuts and macadamias, Falwasser crispbread, Wattle Tree Creek Chutney, Butterburst biscuits, Loco Love chocolates and almost covered in dark chocolate inside, this huge hamper says ‘thank you!’ in a big way.
5. Calming Candles
If you’re searching for something simpler, but still just as sweet, we’d suggest a cute scented candle like this one.
A nice label or inscription with a quote that is relevant to teaching is a nice touch that will make the gift feel extra special. This is a thoughtful gift that teachers can keep on their desk or take home for the nightly reminder that they’re work is appreciated.
6. Coffee, because of course.
Have you ever seen your child’s teacher nursing a coffee mug before class? If they’re a coffee lover, they’ll no doubt love our Plunge Into Coffee hamper.
This hamper has everything they need to brew the perfect cup of coffee between classes.
It includes a coffee plunger for brewing, Byron Bay Coffee’s award winning organic ground plunger blend, Mindful Foods Tea’s Chillax Blend, Brother’s Blend from Brookfarm and yummy Byron Bay cookies and milk chocolate coated coffee beans for them to snack on.
