    The end of the year is almost upon us, which means we've just about reached the season of giving!

    Not only is it great to receive presents, but giving someone a present and watching their reaction is also insanely satisfying.

    And while it might be a given that you splash out on friends and family, teachers are often left out in the cold...

    TV Land

    Which can suck, because when you think about it, you (or your kids) probably see your teachers more than you do some friends.

    It might feel a little jarring trying to figure out what to get the educators in your life, so I've made this list to make things easier for you.


    But if you'd rather something with a personal touch, we've also got this great post about some DIY gifts that would work great for teachers too!

    1. This accordion-style file organiser that's equal parts aesthetics and hella useful for organising those tests.


    This baby comes with 24 pockets big enough to contain a number of assignments, marked exams, unmarked exams and permission slips. Basically any teacher's dream!

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $24.98.

    2. This pair of novelty socks that they can relax in during the holidays, while silently stressing about the amount of work they have to do before school starts.


    These guys come in "beer", "coffee" and "wine" variations so that you can customise based on your teach! Plus, the writing is on the soles, so if they decide to wear these out, nobody will even know about the cheeky text.

    Buy a pair from Amazon Australia for $5.18.

    3. This tea sampler that includes 20 varieties of tea, so that they'll have one for any and every situation.


    Flavours range from classics like English Breakfast and Earl Grey, to T2 favourites like Melbourne Breakfast and Pumping Pomegranate fruit tea. Plus the box it comes with? *Italian chef's kiss*

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $22.

    4. This "Fixer of Everything" desk sign that is so true it hurts (don't @ me).


    In this house, we stan those who educate us about the world — both academically and otherwise. The sign is made of wood and has a golden plaque, making it the perfect gift!

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $28.98.

    5. This adorable bookmark that will let the teachers in your life know just how much you appreciate them.


    The lettering on this stainless steel bookmark is engraved, so it won't fade or scratch off. It's also got a golden tassel charm attached which will make you want to use it for books, journals and basically anything that's in the form of a book!

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $9.99.

    6. This teaching-inspired water bottle that's is utterly divine!


    The stainless steel, insulated bottle even comes in a beautiful box with a matching gift card, which makes gifting it an absolute breeze!

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $29.99.

    7. This gorgeous ID card holder, so that even the most mundane things will become fabulous.


    Sure they could always use a basic cord lanyard, but an ID card holder like this will make them feel special and remind them that students and parents care about the impact they're making.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $13.99.

    8. This pretty keychain that they can look at when they're feeling overwhelmed and be reminded that they're helping people.


    Plus, having a ginormous keychain attached to their keys will make them more difficult to lose, which is a likely problem for someone with so much on their mind.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $11.99.

    9. This delightful wine glass that they can use in their downtime — because if anyone needs more wine time, it's teachers.

    Cotton On

    The sweeter the message on the glass, the more they'll love it!

    Buy it from Cotton On for $11.89.

    10. This beautiful coffee tumbler that they can use for their morning brews, because lord knows they need it.


    These babies are stainless steel, double-wall vacuum insulated, meaning they'll keep their tea and coffee hot or their iced coffees cold depending on what they prefer.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $17.99.

    11. This set of six bath bombs to help them wind down after an extra long, extra stressful day.


    Not only are they enriched with organic shea butter, leaving your skin super moisturised and soothed, but they're made with essential oils which means whoever is using them will also have the benefits of aromatherapy. The variety includes sandalwood, coconut, lavender, rose, vanilla and mandarin.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $25.94.

    12. This gorgeous set of whiskey stones they can use to chill their favourite spirits without watering them down.


    The set includes six stones made of soapstone, a wooden gift box and a velvet pouch that can be used when you're refrigerating them.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $24.95.

    13. This Australian pink clay face mask that will detoxify and cleanse their skin, helping them be their best and prioritise their self care.

    14. A set of shea butter hand creams that will relieve their skin from the copious amount of washing they're doing — trying to avoid germs.


    The bottles are aesthetically pleasing with floral patterns and the scent is tangerine and begamot (a floral smelling citrus fruit) mixed with cinnamon and nutmeg with a cedar wood base. Basically all the best things.

    Buy a set of six 30ml hand creams for $36.44.

    15. And while you're at it, get them some portable hand sanitiser because sometimes sinks and soap are not readily available.


    Let's be real, schools are bacterial breeding grounds and this will help them avoid the common cold and other lurking germs.

    Buy it from Amazon Australia for $9.41.

    16. And finally, this spark happiness set that includes 50 prompts for creating joy.


    Basically, each stick has a statement or question on it encouraging the reader to remember a great moment full of joy, which can be crazy helpful on a specifically challenging day. If you want, you could even make a DIY version of this with some paddle pop sticks and a box!
