The Best Christmas Gifts for Teachers, Child Minders & Nursery Keyworkers

If your wee one is at school or nursery, you may be thinking of buying their teacher, Child Minder or keyworker a lovely gift for Christmas to thank them for all their hard work & dedication.

The biggest question that parents often ask themselves is ‘what on earth do we get for our child’s teacher/key worker?’. Good question! You need to consider the following;

  • What are their hobbies? Your child may have some useful knowledge.
  • Remember they’ll be getting gifts off potentially the whole class – they won’t want their house filled with tat, so it should be something nice and useful too.
  • What is your budget? Teachers may feel uncomfortable accepting anything too extravagant, and depending on school policy may not be allowed to. Set a budget, you don’t need to go overboard.
