Three Themed Gift Basket Ideas for Teachers from the Class

We love our teachers, and we love to shower them with gifts during the holidays!  I’ve been the room parent for one or both of our kids for the last six years, and each year during the holidays, I send an email to give the parents the option to contribute to a class gift for the teachers.  Contributions are, of course, not mandatory, but I’ve found that most parents would rather contribute to a class gift than worry about purchasing a gift on their own.

Today I’m sharing three themed gift basket ideas for teachers from the whole class.  The items you curate for your basket are, of course, dependent upon the amount of money that you are able to collect, but I’ve found that parents are very generous when it comes to treating the teachers, and we’re usually able to put together something pretty fabulous for each of them year after year.


Gift Basket Idea #1 – The Gift Card Tree

You can never go wrong with gift cards, but it can be tough to gift them in a clever way.  To spruce up the presentation a bit, just purchase a miniature Christmas tree and clip the gift cards to it.  It’s easy, and the teacher can use the Christmas tree in the classroom for years to come.

Gift Basket Idea #2 – The Stanley Cup Bundle

Stanley Cups are incredibly popular right now, so a cute gift idea would be to purchase a Stanley Cup in the teacher’s favorite color and include a bunch of accessories with it.  Just look at that custom nameplate, y’all… it is just darling!

Gift Basket Idea #3 – The Pamper Yourself Basket

Everyone deserves to pamper themselves every now and then, and I can’t think of anyone more deserving than our teachers!  This gift basket includes an array of items to keep teachers cozy and allow them to pamper themselves after a long day in class with a room full of kids!

And there you have it… three very different ideas for gift baskets for any teacher on your list! 

Happy shopping!


  1. These are absolutely brilliant! One time I put together a coffee themed basket, of course a mug, coffee, tea, Cocoa, a coffee notepad, a gift card to Starbucks, I love doing themed baskets.

  2. Such great ideas! I know all of them would be much appreciated.
