5 gifts teachers actually want

gift guide gifting teacher gifts Jun 15, 2022

The end of the school year is almost here—and we know your kids' teachers deserve something great as a thank you. If you don't want to go the gift card route (though those are always greatly appreciated), here are a few ideas that they will love.

Terradomi Candle Co. is a Toronto-based, women-owned, eco-friendly soy candle company that creates the most delicious scented candles that any teacher will love. Our favourite is "But First, Coffee," which smells of espresso and roasted hazelnuts, but there are other punny greats like "Bean There, Done That" (vanilla bean) and "Cabin Fever" (cedarwood, citrus and eucalyptus) that are equally great. Plus, the company has a refill/trade-in program that helps promote sustainability. 

Terradomi Candle Co. But First, Coffee Candle, $37.

Even if you don't know your kids' teacher very well, you at least know her name—and that gold will never go out of style. This beautiful monogrammed necklace is a classic choice. 

Anthropologie Monogram Pendant Necklace, $38 USD.

Candy is a great gift because it's easy to share! And these gummies from Squish Candies are Canadian-made, vegan and made from natural ingredients (and did we mention yummy?). This TGIF Kit has three summer break–inspired flavours like Sunny Sangria, Ice Wine and Sparkling Bears.

Squish Candies TGIF Kit, $46.

Who doesn't love a cutting board that can double as a fancy charcuterie board? Available in 21 different finishes and sizes, any teacher would be happy to see the reminder that they're appreciated every time they make a meal. 

Personalized Best Teacher Ever Cutting Board, from $53.

If anyone needs wine, it's teachers. This wine experience box from TASTR includes a Vinho Verde Style White Wine, a Vinho Tinto Red Wine, a Rosé, a Fortified Moscato Dessert Wine, as well as a bunch of local sweets and treats. Use code MOMHALO for 10% off your order.

Wine TASTR Box, $90.
