10 Teacher Gifts under $30
Teachers are wonderful, aren’t they?
At Christmas time, it’s nice to give a little token of appreciation for the year. I have put together some gift ideas for all sorts of teachers – school, sports, music and activities. Things that are natural, organic, eco-friendly and meaningful and they are all under $30!
Actually these gifts would be perfect for the work Secret Santa or the neighbours. Anyone, really!
♥ Star Teacher Gift Set
A gorgeous set featuring a clay tag ornament and a block of handmade organic raspberry chocolate in a calico gift bag. Find it here.
♥ Crio Bru
One of my standard gifts I give at Christmas time- Crio Bru! It’s like ground coffee beans but it’s cacao beans and it comes in a few different flavours. Rich, dark and chocolatey, it’s great to make a hot drink or to use in recipes. You could always add a Keep Cup to the gift as well (see below) to make a more substantial gift.
Check out Mandy’s Crio Bru store online here.
♥ Xmas Decorations
Another of my standard teacher gifts every year. It is a little keepsake that will remind teachers of their student whenever they decorate the tree. Check out the Oxfam Christmas range for some beautiful Christmas ornaments that give back. I am particularly loving these gorgeous recycled sari stars which you could use all year round! Also check out these beautiful ceramic stars that are handmade by a Brisbane mum.
♥ Flora Remedia Calm Roll-On
Seriously, I don’t know how teachers cope with the noise and energy of 20 odd kids every day. I sometimes struggle with two! So this Calm roll-on from Flora Remedia may be a welcome relief! It combines not only gorgeous essential oils, but flower essences as well for a double whammy. You roll it on your pulse points for soothing, calming and centering. Actually, I think I need one for myself anyway!!
Find it online here.
♥ Affirmation Cards
I love these quirky affirmation cards from the Twigseeds range by Brisbane artist, Kate Knapp. Inspiration and a smile every day, guaranteed! There are 24 cards with a wooden stand. Get them here.
♥ Keep Cup
The Keep Cup is a glass reusable cup for hot drinks. Perfect for playground duty or sipping on in class – a lot safer than a coffee cup. You might want to add a few vouchers from your local coffee shop as well. Get it online here in all different styles and colours.
♥ Oxfam Unwrapped Gift
If you don’t want to buy a gift as such, what about a charity gift? There are heaps of fun things you can buy, including $20 towards breakfast for kids in South Africa, goats, chickens and ducks! It’s such a great feel-good gift and you can personalize it with a message too.
Check them out online here.
♥ Treehouse Room Spray
A practical gift perfect for the classroom. This room freshening spray contains pure essential oils to eliminate odours, disinfect and uplift and invigorate – multi-purpose! Get it online here.
♥ Homemade Food Gifts
If you have the time and inclination, get together with your kids and make up some yummy treats. Check out this bumper list of beautiful food gifts. Everything from bacon jam to biscotti!
♥ Organic Wine
If all else fails, just go with a bottle of good wine. After all they have put up with our cherubs all year. Maybe a case would be a more adequate compensation!! 😉
