Teachers play such a big role in our children’s lives, and they give so much time and effort they give to their often underpaid jobs. Christmas is a great time to show them our appreciation. Here are some unique and affordable Christmas gift ideas for teachers.
Art and craft supplies
You know that whatever notebooks, paints, pens and papers you give will be put to good use! But take it a step further. Give them personalized notepads or notecards, or high quality stamps and inks (you can find these in scrapbook stores) or personalized sticker labels.
Bake your own cookies and place in a tin that your child decorated. Or you can give them something they would rarely buy for themselves, like gourmet chocolate or a high quality coffee beans. You can also give them a gift certificate for a nice restaurant.
Best not to buy makeup since you don’t know her skin tone or her preferences, but scented body lotions, foot scrubs, colognes or hand lotions are all welcome. Or, you can give her gift certificate to a spa or salon near the school. After all who doesn’t want a beauty treat after the end of a long day?
Scented candles, linen scents, diffusers or concentrated oils for burners can help her relax at the end of a long day.
