Gift Ideas for Your Child’s Teacher + Free Printables
Gifting to your child’s teacher can be hard. You want to show your appreciation for all the work they do but have no idea what they like or need. Most likely, your child’s teacher doesn’t need another “Best Teacher” mug. To make gifting easier for teacher’s appreciation week or a teacher’s birthday, we have curated some tips and teacher gift ideas for getting your classroom hero something they will love.
What does your child’s teacher really want?
There are some simple ways you can determine if a gift would be fitting for your child’s teacher.
The gift should fit into one or more of the following categories:
- Practical: The gift should be something that the teacher can actually use, such as a gift card.
- Simple: The gift doesn’t have to be store-bought to be amazing! Something as simple as homemade goodies can show their teacher how much you appreciate the work they do.
- Thoughtful: A personal gift, such as a necklace with the teacher’s monogram, will let them know that they are special to your child.
- Meaningful: Homemade keepsakes and cards are always special for teachers to get. Especially, if it includes photos of their students from throughout the school year.
If you want to get more information on your child’s teacher before purchasing them a gift, consider sending your child with a teacher gift questionnaire in their notebook.
