Gift Guide

Need some gift-giving inspiration? I've put together this Gift Guide to help simplify your shopping and show you some cute gift wrapping ideas to add some thoughtful and more personal touches.
I've used paper shopping bags for each gift, but I always try to reuse and upcycle gift bags that I've put away.
If you're working within a budget, no problem! I've rounded up a range of products from different makers to suit all budgets. And although I've grouped gifts together, any of these products on their own would make someone so happy.
I've linked products and some of the gift wrapping additions.

 

"An Apple for the Teacher" (Under $50)

I've put this gift first because it's my absolute favourite! I'm a sucker for anything apples and I've stuck with the theme of red for this. And what a perfect combo for World Teacher's Day!

 Products:
- Teaching with Julia World's Best Teacher Wrap Headband
- KeepCup Writing Lines Medium
- Timber&Cotton Glitter Apple Mini Studs


Gift wrapping:
- Paper shopping bag
- Chocolate eclairs from Coles (yummy!)
- Cellophane lolly bag

"Teacher Well-being" (Under $65)

Giving the gift of affirmation cards, is giving the gift of well-being. To these, I've added beautiful handmade (on Wurundjeri Country) earrings and the happiest of headbands. A few crayons tied onto the gift is an adorable addition- the new Crayola Colours of the World crayons would suit nicely.

Gift wrapping:

 "Rainbows" (Under $30)

I have always LOVED rainbows, and they're still really having a moment. How can they not make you smile? This is a super simple wrapping idea, but there's something about unwrapping a present that brings joy and a little bit of excitement.

The rainbow card is just so cute. I love the whole collaboration between Kikki.K and Malala Foundation.

- Craftanoon Mustasrd + Red Rainbow Studs

Gift wrapping:

"Sharing is Caring" (Under $75)
The Rainbow Fish taught us that sharing makes us happy, and I totally agree...but I think it also taught us that we all love shiny, glittering sparkles! I used my Cricut Explore- bought from Spotlight, for extra detail on this gift. Colouring a printed fish and sticking it on the box would be a sweet alternative.

This gift is all about colour. It's also the perfect gift to add a personal touch- literally. Brightly-coloured hand prints or drawings on this bag would look great. If you're putting this together for your favourite Art Teacher, a paintbrush tied on top is a nice little nod to their role.
