5 Holiday gift ideas for your child’s teacher

For the holidays, show your child’s teacher how much you appreciate their hard work and care. This season, give your child’s teacher a Christmas bouquet, plant, fruit basket or one of these thoughtful holiday gifts.


Bookstore gift card

Every teacher loves books. For the holidays, your child can give the teacher a gift card to Barnes & Noble or your local bookstore. If you prefer, ask a few other moms to pitch in so that the card can be from all the kids as a group (and for a higher dollar amount).

Christmas ornament

Though it’s a common gift idea, a person can really never have too many Christmas ornaments. Give your child’s teacher a personalized Christmas ornament like the Snowman Teacher Personalized Christmas Ornament, priced at $10.99 at Amazon.

Though we wouldn’t normally recommend a gift of clothing unless you know the recipient’s personal taste, a scarf is a universal gift that everyone can appreciate. And you don’t have to worry about the size. This Cejon paisley scarf is a fabulous bargain, available for just $24.99 at Macy’s.

Homemade Christmas cookies, brownies or candies make a terrific gift. Have your child help you in the kitchen, preparing and baking the treats for his/her teacher. It’s a wise idea to find out ahead of time if the teacher has any dietary restrictions.

A letter of thanks

If you ask most teachers, the holiday gift that they really want to receive is a token of appreciation. Have your son or daughter write the teacher a note of thanks about something helpful or inspirational the teacher has done or said.
