Top 10 Teacher Thank You Gifts for 2019

Teacher Thank You Gift from Kinder child

With Term 4 just beginning, it’s dawned on me that the end of the school year is coming and with that, my mind is busy thinking about what thank you gifts to give my son’s kinder teachers this year. 

Saying a few word of thanks in person and on a card is just my style. I really like letting others know how much I appreciate them so these sort of gifts are really enjoyable to think about, purchase and give.  I find it good for my soul to show my appreciation for others and encourage you to get in on the action too!

Last year was a bit last minute despite my son having the MOST AMAZING three year kinder teacher, so I’d like to be a bit more organised this year and what better time than the start of the last term of school!

I’ve put together a list of some of my fave teacher gift options for this year to help you get organised as you prepare to celebrate the end of the year!

So here it is, my fave teacher gifts for 2019!

1.  Personalised Teacher Thank You Cards | $5.00

I'll be honest, I love myself anything customised and at $5, this idea is a no-brainer!  You customise this thank you card for your chid's teacher by submitting their name and choosing between two colours (pink design shown here but blue is also available). Here at the Sunny Pineapple, we are long terms fans of Mum And Me Handmade Designs.  The designs are super cute and always on trend! These personalised thank you cards are sure to be a great addition to the thank you gift. I have just ordered four for my little boy’s kinder teachers! Owner of this great store, Katrina, also has like a bazillion other awesome products so check out her website too for other ideas.




2. Thanks For Helping Me Grow Seed Teacher Gifts | $6.00

Seed Gift Box for Teachers Thanks For Helping Me Grow QuoteI love this little gift idea that Greenery Lane have created.  Little seed pack with the words "Thanks for Helping Me Grow" available in marigolds, daisies or herbs. I gave the herb option a miss due to the Woolworths freebies going on right now. I love the wording for this gift and have been seeing version of this on Pinterest for a while.  If you don't want to buy this gift, you can make something like this yourself with a pot plant and little sign and a real plant! For just six bucks though, this is a sure winner for me.  




3.  Teach Love Inspire Tassel Keyring | $12.00



Teacher Gift Keyring Colourful with Teach Love Inspire CharmI am loving these tassel keyrings from The Sili Bead Queen. She makes a bunch of personalised products including these cute teacher keyrings.  They come in two sizes as shown int he picture and she also has a tassel keyring with a USB for $20 as well you might like for your chid's teacher.  You can choose from a range of colours and don't have to include the teachers charm if it's not the style you are after.  I love a fully customisable gift!


4.  Handpainted Reusable Takeaway Coffee Cup | $58.00



Reusable Coffee Cup Teacher Thank You GiftThese gorgeous ceramic takeaway reusable cups are so absolutely gorgeous!  We know you will agree!  Made by the very talented Kim Wallace on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, they are hand painted so each one is slightly different and a work of art as well!  I want one for myself! You can purchase a 6oz, 8oz or 12oz size. This cup comes with a frosted clear heat sleeve and either a blue, green, pink or black silicone lid which you can choose in the checkout. This is the rainbow design in the 12oz (I like my coffees BIG!) but there are heaps of designs to choose from.  You can check out the full range of the reusable takeaway cups here.  This is a perfect gift for that extra special teacher!
