There are 2 kinds of people reading this post: Those who’ve had kids at school for years and have completely run out of teacher gift ideas, and those who are new to school life and have just realised that teacher gifts are a thing.
Either way, it’s November my friends! The end of the school year (in Australia) is imminent. If you haven’t bought your teachers a much-deserved thank you pressie yet – now’s the time!

Don’t make a mug of yourself
Every year, the average Australian teacher receives: 17 unwanted ‘best teacher’ mugs, 13 unhealthy boxes of sometimes food, 7 fragrances they’ll never wear, 3 bunches of flowers that wilt in the heat and 1 embarrassingly generous gift card from the grateful parent of a painful child*.
Book Geek is a new Brisbane biz that stocks ALL THE THINGS for book lovers. Their affordable gift ideas are perfect for celebrating the hard work of all those teachers, librarians and carers who’ve nurtured your little ones’ love of learning in 2016.
Top gifts for teachers – fast shipping Australia-wide
A good teacher gift is personal and practical. The more unique it is, the more likely they are to remember your child … in a good way. Here are just a few of the goodies on offer at Book Geek.
How often have you seen teachers struggling from the staff room to the classroom with bundles of paper under their arms? Tote bags are a practical gift teachers can use at work or at home. These ‘book lover’ motif bags are sturdy, lightweight, environmentally-friendly and unisex!
Pins and badges
For something a little bit special, these charming enamel pins are small in size but big on geek chic. Presented on a vintage library card, you can choose between a Penguin Classics design or the funky Readers Gonna Read message. Pair one with a pretty scarf or stick one in your tote bag to round out the present.
A framed print is another great idea for home or classroom use. These cool book page prints showcase literary quotes over pages of type. They’re ideal for library décor or styling the classroom reading corner.
You can never have enough stationery. This is just something I fundamentally believe! But I know many teachers agree. In the classroom, there is always a need to jot down messages or keep lists. Today’s teachers also spend a lot of time in training and professional development activities where notebooks are a handy accessory!
Don’t forget the card
A teacher once told me that the nicest thing she receives every year is the handwritten notes from students and parents. A quality greeting card with a special message of appreciation from you or your child might just be all you need to make your teacher’s day! These beautiful literary quote Christmas cards have plenty of blank space for your heartfelt words. They would also look lovely in a frame!
Teachers do some of the most valuable and under-appreciated work in our society, imho. Not to mention librarians, who can instill a passion for reading in the most reluctant of learners.
Teacher gifts are a thing; an important thing! Choose something unique to show them how much you appreciate what they do.
The team at Book Geek aim to have orders in the mail within 24 hours, which means you still have time to shop the perfect gift before end of term. Go!
