Teachers put in a lot of time and effort for the sake of their students. This is why it’s important to recognize them with something special, especially at festive times of the year like Easter.

But what should you get a teacher for Easter? And what can you include in an Easter basket for a teacher? Well, we have some suggestions for you.

1. Get them a gift card from one of their favorite stores or restaurants

This way, they can choose something they want or need. Teachers are always so busy during the school year, and they often don’t get to take the time to get out and buy something for themselves.

A gift card is a great way to let them know that you appreciate all they do and that you’re thinking of them. It also gives them the freedom to choose something they want or would not normally buy.

2. If the teacher is crafty, get them a new set of crafting supplies

This could be a new set of paints, brushes, or even a new sewing machine if the teacher likes to sew. When it comes to buying gifts for teachers, it’s always a good idea to think outside the box.

Most teachers appreciate receiving gifts that are related to their hobbies or interests, especially if they are creative. If you know that your teacher is creative, why not buy them a new set of cute Easter crafting supplies or a fun crochet kit.

3. If the teacher has a garden, get them a new gardening tool or set of seeds

Gardening is a popular hobby for teachers because it is a great way to relax and de-stress. It is also a great way to get outdoors and enjoy nature after a busy week in the classroom.

Gardening can also be very rewarding, as it allows you to see the fruits of your labor in the form of beautiful flowers or delicious vegetables. Accordingly, a new trowel or a packet of Easter-themed flower seeds is a great gift for a green-thumbed teacher and can make their day.

4. If the teacher loves to read, get them a new book or e-reader case

Most teachers enjoy books. Therefore if you know they read books electronically they will love protecting their e-reader with a new, stylish case.

If however, your teacher prefers physical books, you could give them a collector’s edition of their favorite novel. A custom bookmark will also help your teacher not to lose their place. You can buy an Easter bunny bookmark from a book store or make one yourself.

5. Get the teacher a gift certificate to a day spa

A day of relaxation and pampering is just what they need after a long school year. Whether your teacher books in for a facial, a massage, or a pedicure, they’re sure to appreciate the gesture.

Giving your teacher a voucher means that they can book in for a treatment at a time that suits them. You could also make up a small hamper containing slippers, a robe, and some chocolates to enjoy at the same time for a luxurious experience.

6. Frame a picture of the class with a heartfelt note attached

This is a great way to say thanks and remind your teacher of all the good times you’ve shared in the classroom. A photo frame also makes for a lovely desk accessory.

You can take a professional image of the entire class, or create a collage using individual polaroids for a more DIY feel. The choice is totally up to you – just remember to plan so no one gets left out.

7. Coffee is the perfect cure for a busy teacher

If your teacher cannot do without a morning coffee, why not get them a new coffee mug or a bag of coffee beans? Every coffee lover enjoys receiving new coffee supplies, and your teacher will be no exception.

If your teacher prefers tea, you could buy a high-quality matching tea set instead. Don’t forget to get some of their favorite teabags and biscuits to complete the experience or even a chocolate Easter egg. However, if they love both tea and coffee, get them a bag of Seattle coffee roasters along with some tea infusers.
