As the school year comes to an end and as Christmas looms closer, it is time to start to think about ways to thank the teachers that give so much of themselves to nurture and enrich our kids each day in the classroom and on the playground.

It is also a time to celebrate the special bond as we reflect on how far our kids have come this year in their personal growth.

It’s a great time to explore what makes an inspiring gift that shows out appreciation and will be cherished. As one of the leading personalised Teacher Gift companies in the Aussie market, Gifted from the Heart has taken the hard work out of the process to provide you with fast dispatch, great value, locally produced, functional gifts that the Teachers will not only appreciate but use every day!

Here are 5 categories of practical teacher’s gifts:

1. For the classroom

The classroom is a hive of activity all year long.  Consider gifts such as bamboo pencil pots, notebooks, docking stations, phone stands , key rings and wireless charging pads personalised for your child’s favourite teacher to bring a touch of organisation and functionality to their desk space.

2. For the home

Whilst the classroom is busy and the base station for #teacherlife the job doubtless spills over into the teacher’s home life. Personalised gifts such as double walled aluminium tumblers will help to keep that cup of coffee or tea hot during long marking sessions. A personalised lolly jar filled with lovely chocolates, lollies or bliss balls will be sure to give the teacher energy and motivation during lesson planning. Planter boxes can help to bring a touch of greenery into our living space to beautify and purify the home. Simply add a lovely flowering plant or succulent to a personalised bamboo planter box for a living gift. Fresh flowers are always a colourful and special gift so combining them with a personalised vase will be extra special.

3. For the staff room

Whether your child attends school or is in a childcare centre the staffroom is a space for the teachers to relax, recharge and regroup. It is the perfect space to show your appreciation with a group gift. A large soda glass cookie jar, personalised with your child’s name and the school or childcare centre’s name will be a gift that keeps on giving all year long every time it is refilled with nice biscuits for that all important coffee break! Group gifts like this are kind on the wallet and truly appreciated by the staff and special reminder of your child’s gratitude.

4. Keepsake gifts

Sometimes a teacher enters your child’s life that is truly amazing and they develop a really special bond. Celebrate these connections with an unforgettable gift that the teacher will always cherish. Unique gifts like sound recording gifts that allow your child to record, in their own words, a special and touching message for their favourite teacher.

A crystal ornament for the Christmas tree is another unique gift that will bring joy every year when it is added to the tree.

5. Beyond the classroom

We love that old saying “it takes a village to raise a child” and the end of the year is a great time to thank the additional people that help your child grow and develop beyond the school environment. Whether your child loves ballet, swimming, footy, basketball, judo, tennis or music there are special coaches and teachers that help enrich and develop their skills though hobbies and sports. Check out an incredibly large range of special interest gifts or even design your own thank you gift using our special design service. For a truly one-of-a-kind gift.
