Aside from parents themselves, teachers are some of the most influential people in a child’s life. They are tasked with the important and serious responsibility of helping educate your child and aiding them to reach their potential. With such great involvement in your child’s life, it only makes sense that you would want to get your son or daughter’s teacher something special this holiday season. In this post, we will take a look at a few thoughtful Christmas gifts that are perfect for teachers.
Your child’s teacher spends every weekday with your child, and their work doesn’t stop there. Teachers clock in early and often take their work home with them, even spending some of their weekends working. If one thing is clear, it is that teachers very much need regular breaks and deserve to have them! You can make a teacher’s time off quite luxurious with a relaxing gift set. This could be anything, like a bath-themed gift set filled with bubbles, fragrant Epsom salts, bath bombs, and lotions. This could be something pre-made that you buy online, or you and your child can put together your own creative relaxing gift set curated specifically for that teacher.
Another gift item that will help a teacher relax is a lavish, colorful, assorted gift basket. If you have a sense of the teacher's personality and preferences, you can create a custom gift basket with all the things you know they like. Perhaps they are big coffee drinkers. In this case, you and your child can fill a basket with different coffee flavors, a cute coffee mug, a gift card to their favorite coffee shop, and yummy snacks they can eat with their coffee, like chocolate or dessert bread. If your child’s teacher loves wine and cheese pairings, get them a charcuterie-themed basket. You can fill it up with things like delicious wines, gourmet cheeses, savory meats, olives, and crackers. You could even throw in a custom charcuterie board too!
It’s likely the case that your child has several different teachers, therefore you have several teachers to buy for. Getting every teacher a high-end gift can get quite expensive. If you want to get each teacher something that will make them feel special without requiring you to break the bank, get them a box of gourmet chocolates. There are so many different chocolate flavors out there, so consider getting them an assortment that they can munch on at the end of a long day.
The theme of this post is really about finding holiday gifts that will help make teachers feel even more relaxed and luxurious on their time off. You know what really helps with that? A big, soft, plush robe. A high-quality robe is perfect for the cold winter season and will simply make everything better. When they first wake up in the morning they can slip on a thick, plush robe while they go about their morning routine. When they come home from work, they can pull on a robe to wear while they enjoy a movie. And any time they are in their own home and feeling a bit chilly, they can wrap themselves up in a luxuriously comfy, warm flannel robe.
Another fantastic gift idea that can really help your child’s teacher relax at the end of a long day is a cozy pair of slippers with some socks. They are usually more affordable than robes too, so if you want to get a teacher something special without it going over your budget, slippers are a great choice. If you are buying for multiple teachers, you can get them all the same style or have fun with your child picking out different styles your son or daughter might think each teacher would like best. You can let the teachers know your child picked out each style specifically for them, showing how much thought was put into the gift.
If your child’s teacher isn’t much of a coffee drinker and you know they like a good cup of tea, get them an assortment of teas this Christmas. You could have your child present it to them in a box or make a full tea-themed gift basket. Include different tea flavors, a mug or a traveling mug, and yummy cookies they can eat while sipping their tea.
Teachers come to school with a bag to hold anything from school papers to personal belongings. If you or your child notices their teacher might be in need of an updated bag, it will make a great gift this holiday season. Whether it’s a backpack or canvas tote bag, you could also have their name embroidered onto the material.
