The end of the school year is approaching fast, and Christmas gift ideas for teachers are on many parents’ minds.
It’s nice to give a little something back to the wonderful people that teach our children to learn and grow. Here are some of your suggestions for a gift for that special teacher in your child’s life, that you can buy from your local Woolworths Supermarket.
Remember that most teachers are very practical – so make the gift practical too! The gift most appreciated doesn’t need to cost a lot of money, it just needs a bit of thought.
Grab a Potted Plant and Wrap it in Ribbon
Quite often you will see some beautiful small potted plants at the front of the store. Grab a pretty one and some ribbon. An easy and beautiful gift that the teacher will enjoy in his or her garden for years to come!
Cost: Under $15
Baked Goods in a Reusable Container
Grab a tray of your teacher’s favorite biscuits and grab a reusable container from the Kitchen aisle. Fill up the container, add a ribbon if you wish. Again this is both pretty and practical.
Cost: Under $12 depending on the container you purchase.
Lollies in a Jar
A very similar idea to the above – visit the delicious lolly aisle and choose a selection of colourful lollies and place them in a reuseable container. So pretty they don’t even need a ribbon!
Give a Fresh Fruit Basket
This is the best time of year for fresh tropical fruit. Grab a small basket and head to the fresh fruit and vegetable section and fill it up with your teacher’s favourites! Fruit makes for a healthy change from chocolate!
Coffee Cup Full of Chocolates or Fruit
Every teacher needs coffee. So a nice large coffee cup, filled to the brim with either chocolates, lollies or fresh fruit – make a cheap as chips and beautiful gift for a teacher!
Cost: Under $10
A Bunch of Flowers
If you are struggling for time, why not just pick up a bunch of flowers! Woolworths have them right up the front and they have a beautiful selection! Everyone loves a fresh bunch of flowers:
Cost: Under $25
One can never have enough stationery, ESPECIALLY teachers. Grab a trolley and load em up!
