Best Christmas Gift Ideas for Teachers

Have you decided what to give your children’s teachers for Christmas this year? When I taught school, I received many thoughtful gifts from parents and students. My favorites were gift cards, homemade and store-bought goodies (let’s face it — I have a sweet tooth!) and fun things the kids made for me. Today I’ve collected some fantastic projects to get you started in your quest for the best Christmas gifts for teachers!

    What a great list! I always want to do something thoughtful for my children’s teachers around the holidays! Thanks for the suggestions!

  4. These are all really creative ideas. My daughter would love to make a bunch of them.

  5. These are great ideas. I worked at two elementary schools as teacher’s aides. I can tell you what they don’t want…coffee mugs and best teacher Christmas ornaments.

  7. These do look like some fabulous ideas for teachers. We usually do gift cards and chocolate!

  12. Gingerbread Holiday Fudge seems like the perfect gift for teachers. It’s really yummy for sure!

  13. What a great way to send Christmas present to our beloved teachers. I love the edible chocolate boxes!!!

  14. I love the idea of gifting homemade food! And you can never go wrong gifting a gift card.

  15. I love all of these ideas for gifts for teachers. I will have to do some of these.

  16. It is a nice idea to give your child’s teacher a Christmas gift. These are all nice gift choices. However in NYC teachers are notallowed to accept gifts from their students. However if were free to accep,t the Chocunt Ccookie and the Double Chocolate Fudge would have been my best picks

  17. Those are very useful and helpful Christmas gift ideas.. Loved them all. Thanks for sharing

  18. I love these suggestions. If my daughter was in school I would make her teacher some crochet cup cozies. They are always liked.

  19. I’m the same as you – gift cards and homemade goodies are my fav. These pictures like amazing especially the cookies on the sled! I might just take one of these ideas this holiday!

  20. What fabulous ideas! I especially love the looks of that white chocolate popcorn!

  21. Oh wow! There are almost too many great ideas here! I really liked the idea of the edible chocolate boxes!

  22. I have been a teacher for over 9 years and always loved getting little surprise gifts from the kids. I still have every hand written card that my students gave me a long time ago. I would just love to get some of those beautiful yummy treats you posted here especially the gingerbread fudge and the million dollar double chocolate fudge.

  23. cool ideas, i prefer to purchase online and ship it to the recipient as most of the providers give an option to put a gift wrappers and wishing cards.

Comments make me happy!
