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!
