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!
♥ 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 can get it online from Crio Bru 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 Catalogue for some beautiful Christmas ornaments. I am particularly loving this gorgeous red star made from recycled paper in an iron frame.
♥ Pana Chocolate Thank You Gift
The always popular and delicious Pana Chocolate in a beautiful gift pack. There are four bars (Coconut & Goji, Nuts, Fig & Wild Orange and Sour Cherry & Vanilla) included in the gift box plus a gift tag. Raw, handmade, healthier chocolate – it is sublimely decadent as well! Get it here.
♥ Affirmation Cards
I love these quirky affirmation cards from the Twigseeds range by Kate Knapp. Inspiration and a smile every day, guaranteed! There are 24 cards with a wooden stand. Get them here.
♥ USB Salt Lamp
Easy to plug into a computer, this salt lamp gives off a beautiful glow while it cleanses the air and sends out negative ions. Get it online 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.
♥ Aromatherapy Soy Candle
These hand-poured, Aussie made candles contain only pure essential oils – no nasty fragrances. With 30 hour burn time and a very affordable price, these candles are also on my list! You can also get them in relaxation, harmony, breath easy and more yummy blends. Get them here.
♥ Oxfam Unwrapped Gift
If you don’t want to buy a gift as such, what about a charity gift – this one is $20 towards breakfast for kids in South Africa. It’s such a great feel-good gift and you can personalize it with a message! Check out this one and others 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.

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!
