As the school year winds down and summer holidays loom, does your to-do list include a quick run around the shops for teacher gifts? Something for the kids’ classroom teachers, the dance teacher and the piano teacher?
Teachers Gifts Are Of Course Optional.
School teachers don’t expect gifts – not on top of the joy of looking after your kids and 24 of their peers from 9 to 3, five days a week, and spending their evenings writing lesson plans or marking homework. Nope.
Neither do the music and dance teachers you already pay well for the privilege of teaching your little ones how to point their toes, bend and stretch, or count to not much more than 5…6…7…8.
Do you still want to buy teacher gifts when for part of the year the classroom became the Zoom room in the home lounge room?
Of course you do – because you understand the work that teachers put in but more importantly because you understand and appreciate the extras they put in. The care and concern factor. The nudge to do better. The pride when a child does well.
So What Do The Best Teacher Gifts Look Like In 2020?
Keep the value low. No-one wants to start a bidding war on teacher affections with inappropriately expensive gifts.
Unusual Or Original
Find something a bit different, handmade or bespoke – just as each of your children is unique.
If the kids are carrying it in their backpack on the last school day, make sure the gift can bounce – or at least won’t shatter into a million sharp bits.
Teachers have their own housemates, partners and families at home. A thoughtful gift in New York could be house cleaning by company swipe n clean from forest hills.
Personal And Meaningful
Make sure the kids do their bit with a simple handwritten thank-you or happy Christmas card for their teacher.
