The Top 7 Teacher Gifts for 2019

There’s no doubt that teachers make an incredible difference in the lives of our children. Every day, through their work inside and outside the classroom, they are helping us to raise the next generation of leaders, innovators and influencers.

While the apple on the desk is a time-honoured favourite, today’s teacher deserves a personalised gift that shows them just how much they’ve meant to your family.

In celebration of World Teacher Day – celebrated in Australia on Friday 25 October – we’ve rounded up the top seven teacher gifts for 2019 that’ll guarantee you an A+.

1. Thanks, you’ve ‘bean’ great

Other than wine, It's probably the number one substance that every teacher needs in their before- and after-school arsenal.

Coffee keeps them pepped and ready to tackle whatever our little angels have to throw at them, day after day, so why not help them to caffeinate in style?

Gift your favourite teacher with an environmentally friendly Engraved Cork Band Reusable Glass Coffee Keep Cup. Ideal for birthdays, Christmases, end-of-year gifts or ‘just because’, you can customise this distinctive gift by professionally engraving individual names, a catchy slogan or your own special message onto the heat-resistant cork band.

This uber-chic 340mL reusable glass cup is the ideal substitute for paper coffee cups, and also comes with a secure push-on silicone lid in black or grey.

Presented in a natural cardboard giftbox, this cup will give any caffeine-loving teacher the hit they are looking for.

2. Trinkets and treasures

This one is both practical and personal – an Engraved Wooden Trinket Dish Teacher’s Gift will help a busy teacher to store special treasures or everyday items in the one place.

Made from natural Acacia wood, this customised present will be perfect in any classroom atop a teacher’s desk, and is ideal for keeping keys, loose change, stationery or special rewards for lucky students!

You can personalise this gift for any extraordinary educator by custom-engraving individual names, dates and other unique details on this classic piece.

3. Bookmarks for bookworms

While lots of classroom work might be going digital these days, there’s no replacement for a good book, and most teachers know the value of flicking through their favourite novel or hunting through second-hand stores for a bargain.

Crafted from quality leatherette and expertly engraved on one side with your teacher’s name, a short message, quote, or other personalised details, a customised Engraved Teacher’s Gift Leatherette Bookmark will be used for years to come.

These beautiful bookmarks come in four earthy colours: grey, red, orange or brown, and feature professional stitching, a textured finish and a tailored tassel.

4. Pencil it in

Taking notes, grading papers, and drawing smiley faces – a pencil is the hardest-working tool in a teacher’s kit.

If you’re looking for a unique gift, a set of five Engraved Wooden Teachers Christmas Pencils are the perfect way to thank your child’s teacher for all their efforts.

Each set of graphite pencils is made from natural wood and can be engraved with the teacher's name, schooling year and a special message. Each of the pencils are FCS-certified wood and feature a natural finish.

5. Engraved Wooden Teacher Coaster

A gift can say a thousand words, so express your gratitude with a personalised Engraved Wooden Teacher Coaster that’s beautifully engraved with your chosen design and a custom message.

This unique coaster gift is classic yet functional, and can be used as a decorative piece or to hold teacher’s favourite drink (whether It's coffee, tea or a BIG glass of wine after-hours!)
