Group Gifts for Teacher

Teacher Gift Ideas – From the Whole Class!

With contributions from class families, a creative theme, and lots of love, group gift baskets make fabulous teacher gifts and are a spectacular way to show your teacher how much s/he is appreciated!

Be creative! Use one of these 6 Terrific Basket Themes to Surprise Your Teacher this Season!

  • Movie Night!  Grab a few fun DVDs, add a box of microwavable popcorn, gummy candy and a couple novelty soda bottles to create the perfect movie night!  Top off with a gift certificate to the movie theater.
  • Get your read on!  Do a little sleuthing and find out what your child’s teacher likes to read, or who their favorite author is.  Gather donations for a hardcover novel, magazine subscription, or fill the basket with a couple best-sellers, a personalized bookmark, and a gift card to the local bookstore.
  • Music Mania!  Find out your teacher’s favorite band or simply the type of music they enjoy and get tickets to a local show.   Include a gift card for downloading music, a cd, or concert dvd. *Have the class sing a holiday song on a recordable card which can be given to the teacher with their basket.
  • Cozy Night In!  Treat the teacher with a basketful of warm goodies including gourmet hot chocolate, teas, and cider with a personalized mug.  Top off with warm gloves and a scarf for the chillier winter months!
  • Hey Sports Fans!  If your teacher is wild about their favorite team, organize a basket with tickets to a game, favorite player jerseys or other sports memorabilia, pennant banner for the classroom, and a holiday ornament with the team logo.
  • Let’s get cookin’!  Ready-to-make cookies and muffins-in-a-jar, family recipes submitted from each student and their family (hole-punched and bound together with ribbon), a gift card to a specialty grocery store, and measuring spoons or a personalized apron (think class hand prints) will spice up any kitchen!
