Ideas for end of year teacher gifts

With only one more week until the end of term, I have been busily preparing Christmas gifts to give to my daughter’s teachers.

This year, I decided to make homemade presents which my girls have had great fun in helping to create.

Here is what we created ….

Christmas baubles Christmas baubles packagedHome made personalised ornaments

We used clear plastic baubles that I picked up from the Reject Shop to create our ornaments.

The baubles open in half so you can fill them with your own photos, or whatever you like really.

For ours, we printed out cute Christmas pictures for one side and a personalised Christmas greeting for the other, then the girls decorated these with glitter and added a few pom pom balls.

I think they look so cute!

I packaged them up in perfectly sized Christmas noodle boxes, which I also found at the Reject Shop, and topped them with a cute little jingle bell.

Cherry ripe chocolare balls packaged Cherry ripe chocolate ballsCherry ripe chocolate balls

We also got into the kitchen and made cherry ripe chocolate balls, using Create Bake Make’s delicious and totally easy recipe.

I had planned to use my own traditional and very similar chocolate truffle recipe, which I have made since I was little kid, but these looked too delicious not to try and they were definitely worth it!

We then popped the chocolate balls into little Christmas bowls and packaged them up in coloured cellophane, tied up with a cute ribbon and a jingle bell.

I love how these have turned out.


I don’t think you can go past homemade gifts for teacher’s presents, especially when you can get your children involved in making them as then they truly come from the heart.
