Teacher Appreciation Day Gift Ideas

Hello there! Welcome back to my blog! Although Arianna is not yet going to the nursery/school, me and my sister-in-law got really caught up by the idea of what can we get my niece’s teachers for Teacher Appreciation Day.

We noticed that all the gifts in shops are so boring and I can’t imagine how it would be to be a teacher and to receive 10 mugs with same, or similar design. I mean, c’mon, how many mugs can a person use, after all?

We wanted something personalised, and I guess everyone goes for that, but also something that the teachers to enjoy and love.

I must admit I had to get help from the teachers I know to get some advice from the other side of the problem. Here are the results:

  • a card, drawing or craft personalised and made by the pupil is always something of heart for the teachers, especially if it has a message for the teacher or if it’s inspired by the reality
  • a card or note from the parents, thanking the teacher for the efforts made to give best education to the children
  • something sweet, bought or homemade it’s always a plus
  • a class personalised gift, with pupil’s names and a nice saying or quote for the teacher, including the teacher’s names and year or studying
  • a more fancy personalised pen or notebook/agenda – stationary products that the teachers can use in their job
  • gift cards – some teachers love this idea, some don’t like it, but I guess it’s more of knowing the personality of the teacher and guessing if that is an option
  • a plant with an attached message simple as “thank you for helping me grow”

I can’t wait for next year to have this problem myself and to start making those cards at home with Arianna for her teachers, and meanwhile we are absolutely loving the gifts my niece is taking to hers, wishing that they are truly appreciated as I know how much heart she put into these gifts.

What other ideas do you have and from your experience, what worked best for your kids?

  1. Great ideas! As a former daycare teacher, we were so happy with a simple thank you and card. It’s sad, but preschool/daycare teachers are for some reason overlooked during teacher appreciation (especially infant teachers). These are such sweet gestures!

    1. To be honest, any kind of person looking after children must be very patient and loving, and as I can’t see myself in a room with more than 2 children without panicking, I think the parents must be more thankful for the help of their teachers, even if it is for their 3 year old or their 14 year old… especially for younger kids!


  2. Appreciation of Teacher is the best way to give them the reward of what they did to make this society better, get a Wikipedia page service for your teacher and make them renowned in the world, Read about Dr Zubaida Sirang who’s book is considered as the top book in the history https://createawikipage.org/
