The holiday season is the perfect time to show your child's teachers how much you appreciate them. Children spend a major amount of their day with their teachers, creating a strong bond between the two. If you are lucky, your child has teachers who spend their day lovingly engaging each and every student.
My son has an amazing connection with all of his teachers at school, and he looks forward to celebrating his teachers during the holiday season. We always choose gifts that are eco-friendly and creative - as well as gifts that the teacher can actually use. Read on to learn six of our favorite cool, creative eco gifts that kids can give to their teachers this year - all of which they'll be very excited to receive!
#1: Snow Globe Gift Cards
Number one is our go-to teacher gift – every year that we give snow globe gift cards we are met with smiles from the teachers. The best part of this gift is that you can easily make a snow globe gift card using a few supplies that you most likely already own. And you can customize the gift cards to your teacher’s needs!
#2: Organic Homemade Goodies
Who wouldn’t love to receive a homemade basket of fresh baked bread, cookies or cake? When we choose to give homemade goodies as a teacher gift, we choose recipes that anyone would love. Think simple, honey whole-wheat bread, chocolate chip cookies or a lemon pound cake. We always wrap the goodies in a beautiful, vintage dishtowel and tie it up with baker’s twine! If you aren’t in the mood for baking, you can order a fresh organic, vegan loaf from Figgy Bakery.
#3: Apple Stamped Reusable Bag
If there is a symbol that is synonymous with teachers, it is the apple. We have purchased plain organic cotton tote bags and stamped them with an apple design using a 1/2 apple and vegetable based inks. This is the perfect project for very small children and when you are finished you can stuff the bag with school supplies that your teacher will need. If you aren’t feeling crafty, I love this organic apple print bag from The Organic Mamas.
