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!
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.
Amazon gift cards are always a good option too, there are so many goodies to pick from….the perfect present for anyone and everyone!
Teacher Gifts Under $10
I don’t think you can go wrong with an adult colouring book….they’re all the rage at the moment. I’ve got a couple that I love, but I could always have more 😉 Here is a link to some of the best on Amazon.
Every teacher needs a good mug, I like this one: I’m a Teacher What’s Your Superpower?
What about a personalised name plate? Great for either a desk or door.
A great way to get organised, with some teacher clips.
I think this is a pretty adorable teacher tin and would look cool sitting on a teacher desk.
Stickers are always a good choice. Below are a few different options.
Some yummy jelly belly’s are sure to be a winner….and cocktail flavour too.
Teachers are often after new ways of gaining their students’ attention. This percussion chime would make a great gift.
These chalkboard labels would come in handy for any teacher. With so many things that need labelling in a class, these would not go to waste.
A pretty owl ribbon lanyard.
Some fun classroom signs are a cute gift idea.
Teacher Gifts $10 – $30
What teacher doesn’t love a good bag? This teacher tote is big enough to fit binders, books and stationery…everything a teacher needs.
If the teacher you know loves washi tape, then this book would be a great option.
How cute is this post-it pop-up note dispenser. Every teacher I know is addicted to post-its (or is it really just me). I’d love one of these (hint, hint anyone!).
I’ve always wanted some of these answer buzzers. Great for when you’re playing games in the class, debates and competitions.
Teachers are usually rushing from one place to the next, so this handy travel mug will make sure they don’t miss out on their hot drink too.
Here are some fun self inking teacher stamps as a gift idea. I don’t think you can have too many stamps and stickers!
What about a washi tape greeting kit? It includes project ideas for various types of greetings, washi tape, colorful postcards, and markers.
There are also so many beautiful washi tapes to choose from, that you could use to accompany the book and kit. I’ve put some of my favourites below.
This wooden stamp set is cool!
What about a lovely leather journal with handmade paper?
If the teacher you know carries a laptop, then this laptop bag would be a good addition
How cute is this teacher door sign. When you order this you can also send through the teacher name to have it personalised.
You can never go wrong with a pamper kit.
Teacher Gifts $30 – $50
This is a handy desk set that includes lots of cool little bits and bobs. I especially like the handy little screwdriver, that I always seem to need, but can never lay my hand on one.
This is a great idea, book ends and pencil holders.
I love these wooden basket organisers.
These busy bee hall passes are cute and useful. They can also be personalised with different text.
I have a trolley and they are an absolute back saver. Teachers have so many things they cart around, this would be a welcome gift.
Handmade wooden bookmarks.
This is a nice storage solution for all of the charts that teachers accumulate.
A beautiful set of file folders.
Some lovely rainbow curtain sheers.
Teacher Gifts Over $50
What about an Erin Condren teacher planner? I have a personal planner and love it, and I’m sure any teacher would love this as a gift. There are so many beautiful, colourful designs to pick from too!
I love these re-useable wall stickers that could be used to decorate a corner in the classroom.
A lovely paper weight would look great on a teacher desk and is definitely a unique idea.
This gift will have the kids stumped…a levitating globe!
And while we’re on globes, what about an illuminated one as well. I have one of these and love it!
This book cart would come in handy for any teacher.
Every teacher needs a beautiful pen to write with.
A colourful balloon rug will brighten up the class
Well I’ve got to say that this has been one of the best posts that I’ve put together. I think I may even just send this around to my family….as I’d be happy with anything from this guide 😀
