  • 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:

A beautiful home made meal or nibbles is always appreciated – plus they are low cost and make for a really thoughtful gift.  Here are some ideas on what you can make for the teachers in your childs’ life:

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!

Mini Mars Bar Christmas Puddings

These are just adorable, and they freeze well too – so you can make a load of these and pop them in the freezer for when you need them!

Cookie Mix in a Jar

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