It’s been an incredibly tough year for many teachers across Australia, as they have had to adjust their teaching methodologies to suit these ever-changing and uncertain times.
Your child may have spent time learning from home, working remotely, or having lessons via virtual screens instead of the traditional in-person classroom setting – but their teachers have remained as busy as ever, planning, monitoring and assessing along the way.
As we approach the final teaching weeks of the school year here in Australia, it’s time to start thinking towards a gift for your child’s teacher – there’s no better time to get organised than the present, especially as we all know these final months tend to fly by!
We’ve put together a list of suggestions to help get you started. Can you think of any other great ideas that we can add to it?
Something for the classroom
A beautiful indoor plant, a new coffee mug or something useful they can take with them into the new school year – these are quite traditional teacher gifts that always come in handy! Best of all, they’ll remind them of their students, even in years to come!
We have a huge selection of funky keyrings and lanyards to choose from, all available on the website now.
Teachers always have their hands full! Whether it’s lugging around workbooks, planners, or practical gear for the next hands-on-lesson, there’s always something that needs to be carried.
Our range of teacher tote bags are a great way to both help them stay organised, and also look trendy at the same time. Our tote bags are made from 100% cotton canvas and have reinforced shoulder straps with one large main compartment for all the essentials. The hardest part will be choosing which design you love the most – maybe your kids can pick their favourite?
Something to pamper themselves
Teachers work hard all year round for everyone else; why not treat them to something they can use just for themselves?
The Teachit Creatively box is a hand selected and curated collection of teaching products from some of our favourite Australian small businesses. It is a celebration of learning, delivered to their doorstep. Each box will be totally unique, but will include a curated mix (6-8) of the following delights: ⠀
♡ An original hand-assembled Teachit Co stamp and sticker pack ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
♡ Tools to ignite creativity in the classroom (eg. stationery, notebooks, pens, highlighters, planners)
♡ Wearable pops of uplift (eg, headbands, scrunchies, tote bags, teacher shirts, earrings, lanyards, keyrings)⠀⠀
♡ Moments of joy, for you to enjoy (eg, candles, face mask, hand cream, yummy delights, travel mug)
♡ And at least one personalised product
Can be purchased as a quarterly subscription or as a one-off purchase. Who doesn’t deserve some SELF LOVE delivered to their door?
Something customised just for them
If you want something unique for your teacher, why not gift them their very own set of custom Bitmoji Stickers? You can create a Bitmoji that looks just like them as well as choosing the text that best suits them too – they’ll be absolutely thrilled when they see how much effort went into this type of gift!
We’ve also got a gorgeous selection of mugs and drink bottles that can all be personalised to suit your child’s teacher. Hydration is key after all, especially when they’re often busy doing playground duty, organising parent teacher meetings or in the middle of epic marking sessions! They’re sure to love this fun gift idea.
Something for the stationery lovers
At the risk of generalising an entire profession, most teachers are stationery afficionados! Why not gift your child’s teacher a little hamper full of their favourite stationery goodies – a planner, some beautiful pens or highlighters. And if that doesn’t feel like enough, I’m sure a nice box of chocolates thrown in for good measure wouldn’t hurt either!
Something handmade with love
Teacher gifts don’t have to cost you a fortune – in fact, sometimes it’s the heartfelt ones that mean the most. Get your children to create a special craft piece that they can wrap and present to their teacher, or even a handmade card with a special message just for them.
Whatever you choose, your teacher is sure to appreciate the thought and generosity behind your gift – thank you for thinking of them and acknowledging all the hard work they do behind the scenes to further your child’s growth and potential!
