10 Teacher Gift Ideas for under $15(ish) 

For The Baking Lover

Teacher gift ideas

Got a teacher that loves to bake? This baking gift basket only costs $12.25, and everything can be found in your local Woolworths. (please note this cost doesn’t include my display basket).

All you need is:

Woolworths Lemon Madeira Cake Mix – $1.85

Loaf Tin – $4.50

Wooden Spoons – $4.80

Lemons – $1.10

Total cost = $12.25

There are a number of ways you can present it. In a basket like I have, wrap it, put it in a gift bag or even put all the ingredients in the loaf tin and just tie it with a ribbon. 

 For the Christmas Lover

Teacher gift ideas

If you have a teacher or carer that LOVES Christmas then this cute hamper is perfect for them. 

All you need is:

Christmas Tea towels – $5

Woolworths Santa’s Boot – $5

Christmas Mug – $3

Woolworths White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies – $2.50

Total cost = $15.50

To package the cookies I used the baking gift bags from Woolworths. They cost $3 and you get 10 bags and tags, but it’s all up to you how you package it. You could also use the tea towel as wrapping paper to wrap the rest, then tie it with a ribbon.

For the Coffee Lover

Teacher gift ideas

This teacher gift idea is for all the coffee lovers! There are loads of things you could mix and match for this but I went for this affordable option.

All you need is:

Woolworths Belgian Truffles – $5

Woolworths Coffee Pods – $3.70

Christmas Mug – $3

Total cost = $11.70

One way you could wrap it is to put the truffles in the mug and wrap in clear cellophane, then gift it tied together with a ribbon. Or use the Woolworths Food Gift Bags I mentioned earlier to put the truffles in to give them a home made look.

For the Fitness Lover

Maybe you have a teacher who isn’t into the sweet stuff? If you have someone that prefers the healthy options then this basket is for you!

All you need is:

Water Bottle – $10

Strawberries – $2

Total cost = $15

You could also fill the water bottle with fruit and tie a ribbon around it, or wrap in cellophane. Whatever takes your fancy!

3 x packs Woolworths Party Mix – $3

This gift would work well for the male teachers in your life! 

All you need is:
