Most parents would agree that teachers are under-appreciated—but 2020 has given everyone a whole new perspective.
With so many schools closed and kids learning from home, parents are gaining a deeper appreciation for how hard teachers work. And what about all the teachers who had to adapt to online learning and other new methods almost overnight?
If there was ever a year when we need some great gift ideas for teachers, it’s 2020! But you shouldn’t have to spend the earth. The better way is to organise a group gift – everyone can spend less but together, give a much better gift.
And the good news… there’s a super simple website that organises the group gift for you – GroupTogether. You create and share a link in two minutes flat. Share the link to let everyone chip in online and add a personal message and pic to the card. You can withdraw the cash or convert it to a gift. Most teachers prefer the AnyCard which lets them swap it for any e-gift card they want from GroupTogether’s huge range.
Here’s our roundup of the best gifts for teachers in this unprecedented academic year.
If you’re feeling frazzled with your child, imagine how stressed their teacher feels dealing with an entire classroom of students. Give them the gift of relaxation with a gift card to endota spa.
They’ll have their choice of a massage, facial, or beauty service, or they can select an all-in-one spa package. They could also use the gift card to stock up on beauty and wellness supplies at home.
We all love the latest gadgets, so why not give your teacher a gift card to JB Hi-Fi?
Maybe they’ve had their eye on a smartwatch or a new TV. Or maybe they need something practical for work, like a better video camera to record remote classes.
A gift card will let them choose something they really need, taking the stress off you to pick the “perfect” present.
Our dining options might be limited at the moment, but that doesn’t mean we have to give up our favourite restaurant meals.
With a gift card for Uber Eats, your teacher won’t have to worry about cooking at the end of a long da
y. They can pick up the phone and have their favourite foods delivered right to their doorstep! Or it might feel better to give a gift card from The Dinner Ladies, who deliver family style food in Sydney and Melbourne.
Bonus tip: This is a better choice than chocolates or other food items that might expire or conflict with their dietary needs.
Is your teacher a fashion lover, or maybe just strapped for cash and grateful for something new to wear. An e-gift card from The Iconic, David Jones or super upmarket store Parlour X will be a treat.
Whether your teacher is a 25-year old woman or a 60-year old man, there’s sure to be something they love. It could be a new coat, a pair of shoes, designer handbag or cool yoga gear.
Of course, their options aren’t limited to fashion either.
