5 Christmas Gift Ideas for Teachers

Christmas gifts for teachers

With Christmas just around the corner, I have been trying to think of some gift ideas for my children's teachers.  Last year we made these shortbread cookies which was lots of fun.  This year, considering my munchkins are getting becoming quite creative, I was thinking of having the kids help me with something crafty for their teachers.  When it comes to craft ideas Pinterest never fails so today I got pinning and in collaboration with Packqueen, I have compiled a list of my top 5 Christmas gift ideas for teachers:

christmas gift ideas

1.  Homemade Bath Bombs 

These homemade bath bombs are simple and use ingredients you may already have in your pantry.  These are my favourite gift idea and I can't wait to try making them myself.

Find the awesome tutorial over at RookieMag

2.  Handprinted Bookmarks

I love this idea as kids really get to add their own personal touch by drawing or creating something that they love for their teacher.

This fantastic idea comes from Kids Kubby

3.  Printed Apple Tote

I know my kids would absolutely love this project.  And who doesn't need a cute tote as a shopping or library bag?  I really love the apples but the shape possibilities are endless.

4.  Personalised Clipboards

Being a teacher myself, I can tell you a clipboard definitely comes in handy!  I would absolutely love one of these personalised clipboards, it's such a shame us high school teachers don't tend to get christmas gifts!

Great idea on Pinterest by Christina Stewart

5.  Reindeer Gift Bag

These are seriously the cutest gift bags I have seen in a long time.  Not only are they a great way to wrap some treats for your teacher, but they are a fantastic idea for party favours too.

Original idea from Fiskars

There are too many great ideas to choose from but I think we will go with a box of bath bombs this year.   I might even get the kids to decorate the boxes like the reindeer in number 5. 

Do you have any other great Christmas crafts?  I'd love to hear them.  Stop on over and share them at our facebook group..
