Fun and Unique Christmas Gifts for Teachers!

Fun and Unique Christmas Teacher Gift Ideas!


Teacher Gifts

Teacher Gifts. Whether you want to spend $15 or $100 or want something store bought or homemade DoSayGive has you covered for the most thoughtful ideas!

I hope you have browsed DoSayGive’s Holiday Gift Guide for Teachers and the Under $25 and Gourmet Gift categories for so many gift teacher gifts, but today I wanted to highlight a few of my favorites:

Joy + Oliver caramels ($15) are a wonderful “little” gourmet teacher gift. And they are the perfect size to slip a gift card in if you want to spend a little more. I also like them for special teachers (PE, Music, Art.)  They recently debuted new flavors like Bourbon Pecan. But the original salted caramel is my favorite!

Target Gift

Generic gift cards from Target, Amazon, etc. are always appreciated and it’s easy to make them look cute by dressing them up. I picked up this cute mug ($5.99) at Target to pair with a gift card and used clear wrap and ribbon for a cute presentation.


Have you guys heard about Packbands? These adjustable straps are so handy and versatile. You can use it to wrap cords, keep your yoga mat rolled up or just to stay more organized. I’m constantly trying to keep up with wires so I have loved using it to stay organized in that way. This gender neutral gift is perfect for any teacher. Use code DOSAYGIVE15 for 15% off.

NEST candle

I love giving “consumable” gifts for teachers. Food and products they will actually use. This NEST Holiday candle is one of my favorite gifts! NEST Fragrances makes the most wonderful candles that last a long time. NEST Candles make the best teacher gifts and their packaging makes for a beautiful presentation. And the votive candles are $16 with free shipping. Wrap up with clear wrap and a ribbon and you’ve got a lovely little gift.

RedBox Gift Card

A movie gift card is another easy gift for both male and female teachers, especially because these Redbox gift cards can be purchased online and printed at home. Pair them with some of your teacher’s favorite candy for a special and fun Christmas teacher gift!

This is a very unique and thoughtful (and affordable gift!). Put a class photo in Lo Home’s Acrylic frame or choose one of the beautiful prints she offers. You can also choose to put a message like “You’re the Best” or “Thank you.”  If you want to spend a little more for a class gift, the tray is beautiful and offers the same options. Use code DSG15 for 15% off.

You don’t have to curate your own gift crate or box – Perfectly Gifted Frisco will do it for you! This Holiday Box includes a monogrammed candle, personalized ornament, kitchen towel, and matches! It is $50 which is a great price but for being a DoSayGive reader you get 10% off with code dosaygive10. They ship nationwide.
