CHRISTMAS GIFT IDEAS DAYCARE TEACHERS WILL LOVE
It can be tricky to come up with the perfect Christmas gift for your child’s daycare teacher. If you don’t know them super well, it can be hard to know what they’ll like. If you’re new to your daycare, ask around to see if there are any traditions for gifting to the daycare teachers. Sometimes the whole class will go in together on one large gift, so make sure that you’re in the loop! If everyone gifts individually, though, I have some great ideas for you.
We all have lots of gifts to purchase when the holidays roll around, so don’t stress – you don’t have to spend a ton of money to find the perfect gift. I have some great, inexpensive gift ideas daycare teachers will love that won’t make you break the bank.
SHOULD I GIVE A GIFT CARD?
If you don’t know your child’s teacher well, a gift card can be a great gift option. After all – it allows your child’s teacher to get something that they’ll really like. This also allows you to spend exactly as much as you want to without worrying about finding the perfect item within your budget.
If you aren’t sure what kind of gift cards to go for, here are a few ideas that are always a hit for teachers:
- What teacher doesn’t need a little extra caffeine in their life? A Starbucks or Dunkin gift card is always a great idea if you don’t know what their favorite local coffee shop is.
- Help them relax with a gift card to a spa
- Ask around to find out what kind of food they like and get a gift card to a restaurant they’ll enjoy
- When in doubt, you can’t go wrong with an Amazon gift card!

WHAT ARE THE BEST GIFT IDEAS FOR DAYCARE TEACHERS?
I love taking the holidays as an opportunity to show some extra teacher appreciation. Teachers and daycare staff do so much for our kids each and every day, and they’re rarely shown the appreciation that they deserve. Teaching can be a really difficult and exhausting profession, and I want to make sure that my child’s daycare teacher knows how grateful I am for all that they do.
When I’m shopping for gifts for daycare teachers, I try to keep a few key things in mind. First off, if I don’t know them super well, I try to stick to gifts that are pretty universal – things that pretty much anyone will use and love. I also love to give gifts that emphasize self-care, as teachers can easily run themselves ragged at work each and every day. Especially over the holidays, it’s the perfect time to give gifts that are cozy and comfortable and will encourage teachers to take time for themselves and reset.
Here are a few of my favorite gift ideas that daycare teachers will love.
All teachers deserve the chance to unwind after a long day. Fuzzy socks are the perfect holiday gift because they’re so warm and cozy and perfect to put on to relax. I like to create little goody bags with fuzzy socks and chocolate to make my child’s teacher’s life a little more relaxing.
Nothing gets you through long days better than a Stanley cup. It keeps drinks warm or cold longer than anything else, which makes it perfect for teachers who spend their days on the go. Plus, they’re super cute!
Winter is the season of cozy throws, and I love gifting an adorable fluffy throw blanket to everyone in my life – including my child’s daycare teacher. Leopard throws are super trendy right now, and I think they make a perfect gift for the holiday season!
It’s always fun to give a gift that puts the recipient in the holiday season. The holidays are the time for warmth and coziness, and a great holiday candle sets the mood perfectly.
It’s no secret that teachers rarely have the chance for self-care. Encourage them to take some time for themself with a self-care kit that has everything they need to unwind and relax over the winter break and beyond.
Everyone loves a great tote bag, and I think that a cute tote can make a fantastic gift for a daycare teacher. I love this Amazon tote – it’s a fabulous texture, and comes in so many different colors!
Your child’s teacher is surrounded by stationery products all the time – they might as well be fun! I love these adorable pastel pens and think that they’d make such a fun teacher gift – pair it with a cute notebook they will love!
COLD BREW MAKER
Teachers always need a little extra caffeine, so a cold brew maker is a perfect gift! There’s nothing like saving time in the morning being able to make your own coffee, and a cold brew maker is something daycare teachers will love.
