Teacher Gift Ideas Perfect For Any Holiday

Great teacher gift ideas to show appreciation for all they do.

I don’t know about you, but I always feel like teachers are like some sort of magical unicorn. Not only are they responsible for my kids, which is enough work in and of itself, but 20+ other kids too! To show a little holiday cheer and not gift them with ONE MORE mug, here are a few ideas for your kiddos teacher.  These also make great teacher appreciation, end of the year gift, or are perfect for anyone you want to show a little appreciation to: bus drivers, dance instructors, nail tech, hairdresser, mail carrier etc.


Recently I posted how I made two different kinds of Wine Cork Deer Crafts that would also make the perfect ornament.

Wine Cork Deer Craft

I found the cutest unfinished ornaments at Walmart and added a shell for some coastal flair. I used a little bit of wood stain and dry brushed with white craft paint to give a weathered look.

Handmade Gifts

You can also find unfinished picture frames at places like Michaels and create a picture frame. You can also read about how I created these farmhouse style picture frames here.

The farmhouse wood box that we made for the Hometalk Workshop could be a perfect addition to any teacher classroom!

All of your hot cocoa essentials in one area.

Store Bought with a twist

Mini bottles of champagne are a way to celebrate, pair it with a super cute drink koozie and you have two gifts in one!

Celebrate the special teacher in your life.

Succulents are so easy to maintain and are a cute little gift in any kind of pot. Add a little stencil for the personal touch.

Great for female and male teachers.

Mason Jar Gift Package

My personal favorite is a mason jar gift package. You can add practically anything in it and the best part, mason jars can be used over and over.  You can hit up the dollar store and find some pretty nailpoish and travel manicure set. Add a fun drink refresher and a gift card to a coffee spot. Fill it with layers of baking ingredients for your special cookie recipe. Truly the possibilities are endless. I added a chalkboard tag and used stamps to create a personal message and had the girls sign their names.

Mason jars are the perfect container to hold any gift.

These are just a few of the super easy and thoughtful gifts you can give to the special people responsible for shaping our future. There’s a little something for everyone and are fairly inexpensive.
