2020 Gift Guide: 50 Great Gifts To Give To Teachers

When we write our Christmas gift list, it’s nice to remember our Day Care, Pre-Prep and School Teachers and any other members of the village helping to raise our kids this year!

It’s a lovely gesture to give a little thank-you to the people who have taught, played with and endured our children this past year. But it does not mean you have to spend a fortune or sell a kidney to afford it by any means – there’s so much available for under $20….but then if you want to spend more, there’s lots available too! Here’s 50 gifts to suit all budgets!

Inexpensive Gifts for Teachers You Can Make at Home:

Nuts and Bolts Crunchy Snack Mix

This delicious savoury mix can be made in bulk in the slow cooker – grab some sealable glass jars, add a ribbon – and there is the perfect gifts!

Traditional Rum Balls

These are the real old-style Rum Balls – my Grandma’s recipe made on Weetbix.  They are so damn good!  Best of all – you can make Rum Balls up to two months in advance – and you can either keep them in the fridge (they mature nicely) or even freeze them!

This one is very visually gorgeous!  You can grab Mason jars from the cheap shops that have lids – which makes them easily transportable.
