The Ultimate Gift Giving Guide For Teachers

Are you on the hunt for a teacher gift? I've sorted the gifts by price from under $10 to over $50, so no matter what your budget is you'll find some fresh, new ideas here.

Are you on the hunt for a teacher gift? Maybe you need to buy a gift for your child’s teacher, or your teaching buddy next door. Or maybe your bestie is a teacher, so you need something just right for her. I’ve got you covered with some cool teacher gift ideas.

I’ve sorted the gifts by price from under $10 to over $50, so no matter what your budget is you’ll find some fresh, new ideas here. Most of the gift ideas are from Amazon or Fishpond, so you can do your shopping in the comfort of your own home. And what I love about Fishpond, is if you’re in Australia they offer free shipping too!

Gift Vouchers

This may not seem that interesting, but oh how I wish someone in my family had given me a Teachers pay Teachers (TpT) gift card already! If you know the teacher you’re buying for is a tad fussy, then this may be the option you’re after. Some of my favourite places for gift vouchers include:

Teachers pay Teachers have gift cards from as little as $5.00 and right up to $500.00.

Teacher Gifts Under $10

  1. Thanks so much for this list. It is actually my birthday next month and I am only a year off graduating, so I may have to hint at some of these things to my family and friends.

    • Hey Amy,

      Well happy birthday for next month! How exciting, only one year off graduating…I think the personalised teacher door sign would look fab on your very first classroom. I also love the teacher tin, which would look great sitting on your desk. I just mentioned to my hubby this morning that I published this post and mentioned he should check it out for ideas for me for Christmas this year….I said I’d be happy with any of the suggestions 😉

      Enjoy your last year of study
      Cheers
      Mel
