Natural Shopping Guides: Gift Guide for Teachers

Teachers work hard to educate our kids every single year, but this year has been a particularly trying time for them- so they deserve a HUGE thank you this festive season!

By Irene Falcone

Teachers can be so difficult to buy for, given that we only really know them in the context of their working life, so when it comes to gift giving it can be pretty difficult to know where to start. Whoever is teaching your kids, you know they’ll appreciate something tried and tested, something that works, something that encourages them to relax and unwind and, most importantly, something that says “Thank you!”

If you’re looking for natural and sustainable Christmas gift ideas for your childrens’ teachers, read on for our top picks.

Skincare Gift Ideas for Teachers

Teachers have worked tirelessly, adapting their entire curriculum and working style to ensure our kids haven’t had to miss out on their education- so they deserve some serious pampering! A well deserved pampering at home is a great way to relax and reward one’s self, so natural skin and body care products make the perfect Christmas gift.

An at-home manicure kit is a great way to say “Thank you,” so why not put together a custom gift pack? Choose a few Life Basics Nail Polish shades and team it with the Life Basics Nail Polish Remover and Breathable Nail Polish Base Coat to create a DIY home nail kit- remember, standard shipping from Nourished Life is FREE for orders over $50!

The Ethique Lavender & Mint Bodywash or Dr Bronner’s Magic Box Set make wonderful unisex Christmas gifts, suited to all skin types and scent preferences.

Sustainable Food Storage for School

It’s not just our kids who take a packed lunch to school!
Ensure your children’s teachers aren’t left bringing plastic bottles and non-recyclable packaging to school by gifting them high quality, natural and eco-friendly food and drink storage this Christmas. We love the Life Basics Reusable Bamboo Cutlery Set, which includes a reusable knife, fork, spoon, chopsticks, drinking straw and wire cleaning brush housed within a reusable canvas bag, and the Cheeki Classic Single Wall Bottle, made from premium, food grade stainless steel and available in so many colours and sizes! The Swag Lunch Swag is another really great budget-friendly option, made from 100% unbleached, unseeded cotton and designed to keep sandwiches, rolls, fruit and snacks deliciously fresh.

Tasty Treats for your Favourite Teacher!

Far more satisfying than an apple on the teacher’s desk, these delicious will be a hit this Christmas.

Nutra Organics Lunar Latte

Rather than a boring old box of chocolates, we recommend putting together a little treat hamper of delicious, natural sweets. The Locako Chocolate Gummies DIY Mix is always a hit- they set in the fridge, are so easy to make, and they’re a delicious, protein and collagen rich, skin-loving alternative to an afternoon chocolate bar. The Krumbled Foods range of Beauty Bites are another gift we know teachers will love, as they taste so, so naughty despite containing five illuminating and age-defying ingredients to help restore collagen levels and reduce the signs of ageing (a benefit any tired teacher will appreciate!). Teachers will also love the Nutra Organics Lunar Latte and any variety of Pukka Tea, all of which are delicious, natural and seriously calming alternatives to an afternoon caffeine hit.
