Let's show our teachers we appreciate them this Christmas. Here's a list of 23 thoughtful Christmas gift ideas for a teacher (or your kid's teacher).
Teachers are vitally important to students. They shape and mold them day in and day out. From making lesson plans and teaching in the classroom, to having conversations with students about their future hopes and dreams. Teachers have a hard and important job in the lives of their students.
When researching items for this post, I asked my sister and brother in law (both are teachers) about their favorite gifts they've received from their students over the years.
They had quite a few special gifts that came to mind. And the one thing they all had in common was each gift was chosen specifically for them. It was clear that the student (and probably parent) really thought about what they would like.
It was a personal gift. A thoughtful gift. A gift given because of something the student KNEW the teacher was interested in, or even something they had created JUST for them.
A few thoughts to get your brain churning to find that perfect thoughtful teacher gift...
- If you know they are really into cooking, give them your favorite recipe or even a Sun Basket gift card.
- If you know your teacher is a big NFL fan, get them some socks with their favorite team's logo on it.
- If you know your teacher can't live without their morning coffee, give them a special mug, or coffee beans, or a Starbucks gift card.
