1. Artificial flower bouquets

Real fresh flowers are beautiful, but they can also be pricey, and if the receiver doesn’t already know what to do with them (make dry flowers, decoration pieces for example), they’ll go to waste. 🥺So why not get some artificial ones that won’t ever wither that your teacher can keep forever? The best part of this is that because they’re not real, you can get any type of flower even if it isn’t in season.

2. Customised notebook

This is a relatively safe gift to give to your teachers! It’s personal and very thoughtful because you can get their name printed on the cover. 😄The teacher can use it for any purpose, as a journal, a note-taking book and much more! It doesn’t take long to order a couple of these.

A teacher sometimes works odd hours and may even forget to look after their health. There’s nothing wrong with giving your teachers some supplements to keep their immune systems in check! 😁 Supplements like vitamin C, and vitamin D are everyday necessities to help the body function properly. If you’re not sure what kind of supplement you can get for your teacher, you can get vitamin C effervescent tablets they can dissolve into water for an extra boost!

5. Honey 

Here the thing, honey never expires! So a small pot can go a long way. It’s also a natural remedy for sore throats, so if your teacher has a bit of an itch, they can have a dollop of honey and call it a day. Bonus: They can add it to their tea, so when they’re marking papers in the cold teacher’s room, a honey tea will help warm their bodies up in no time!

6. Succulent desk plant

It can get lonely at the teacher’s desk in the office at times. Especially coming back from a whole classroom filled with rowdy students! 😆Get a succulent desk plant for them! It’s low maintenance and a cute decoration on a desk stacked with papers and books.

7. Sheet masks

Teachers are very busy people by nature, so when getting a gift for them, you have to consider convenience! 😉 That’s where sheet masks come in. It comes in multiple forms like single packs or for an even better deal, you can get a pack of 30 in one bag. The application is simple too, just take a mask sheet out and put it on your face for 10 mins! Super convenient we think.

8. Scented candles

A scented candle may be the perfect gift when gifting something your teacher can bring home. It comes in many different scents and sizes, so you can find one that suits your teacher and that’s within your budget! 😁 Some places can even customise the candles, so the ideas are limitless.

9. Bedroom slippers

This gift can be used in the teacher’s office or even at home which makes it super practical! It’s no shocker that teachers are on their feet all day but what can really help would be to help alleviate their sore feet. 😃 What better way to do that then to slip off their shoes into something more comfortable?

10. Reed diffuser

If your teacher is someone who likes clean and nice smelling items, you can get a diffuser that can help make your teacher’s environment more comfortable and conducive for work! 🤗 If you have a bigger budget, an aromatherapy diffuser would work well to help make the air smell fresh and add a bit of flair to their desk.

Especially because it can come in handy at any time of the day!
