As a former teacher, I loved receiving gifts from my students. Of course, I never expected to receive anything, but I loved it when I did! If you are a parent looking for an easy Christmas gift for your teacher, then today I want to share with you some ideas! And these ideas don’t necessarily need to gifted to teachers…they would be great for friends, family, or neighbors, too!
I love this crayon monogram gift! I would proudly display this on my desk as a teacher!
Have some candy canes? Make these cute reindeer gifts with them!
Oooh this Sharpie candle is so cute! I would love this as a gift!
I haven’t met a teacher that doesn’t like lip balm. It’s small, simple, and practical. Here is a Christmas lip balm card printable.
Peppermint soap bars would be a pretty and lovely smelling gift to give!
We LOVE bath bombs! These heart-shaped bath bombs look beautiful!
Or you could make calming lavender lotion bars.
Lastly, I recommend giving gift cards! Teachers love gift cards to Starbucks, Target, grocery stores, gas stations, Amazon, and more! I love this gift card holder for a coffee gift card.

Angela Thank you for those awesome ideas for a gift to your teacher.
It really helped me! God bless you
I am a retired teacher. I know how hard your teachers work. A handmade craft is cute but your teachers deserve a lot more than that. Their incomes are low considering all the education they have and all the time they put in each and every day. Give them something that shows how much you appreciate them.

Hi Fran! I appreciate your insight. Thanks! I also was a teacher and appreciated generous gifts, although I mostly received homemade ones. If people can afford to get their teacher something more, I think that is great!
Thankful Parent says
🙂 They were very nice ideas!! Especially when you have multiple teachers and not everyone can afford to give as much as they really would like. I appreciate the thought when someone goes out of their way to show that they thought of me or my family. Have a great holiday.

Thank you for your kind comment! Yes, a small gift is great for multiple teachers!! I think any gesture of giving is nice for teachers. Have a great holiday, too!

As a parent, I would love to give a gift to my kids teachers. They deserve the best. When I am buying for 6 teachers, I also have to be on the frugal side as I too have a low income for a family of 6. I understand where you are coming from , but when teachers make comments like you just made, it hurts my heart. I put in a lot of effort to make the gift nice while not breaking my bank.
I am the teacher, who also is a parent of 3, it doesn’t matter how much you spend. It’s the thought that counts. As a teacher I prefer practical gifts like the lip balm or soap! I like the lip balm as my kiddos have 12 teachers. Merry Christmas!
