Best Christmas gift cards for teachers

Here’s our top picks for Christmas gift cards for teachers that will get you an A+. 

How would a teacher describe 2020 in two words? “Global pandemic” springs to mind. Then there’s “virtual classrooms”, “school closures” and a long list of expletives we couldn’t possibly keep to two words. 

This year more than ever, it’s important to show a little teacher appreciation and celebrate the end of a long school year. You’ll never be faulted for choosing a Christmas gift card for your teacher – it’s what they really want, afterall. But when you can buy online in a matter of minutes, the real winner is the parents. And after all the homeschooling you’ve done this year, you surely deserve some quick wins too! 

Here’s our top picks for Christmas gift cards for teachers that will get you an A+. 

For the sports coach

PE teachers and sports coaches quite literally run after our kids all year round, so it goes without saying they deserve a great gift. The Active Card is available at a wide array of great active retailers, so your teacher can kit themselves out to do it all again next year. Win win!

For the fashionista

Help a teacher put the class in classy with a gift card that can be used across a heap of popular mainstream shops and brands, from ASOS and H&M to Calvin Klein and Aveda. With a gift card for Him or for Her, you can be sure they’ll find something they really want. 

For the history buff

Is it wrong to assume all history teachers love movies? We don’t think so! And with cinemas reopening and COVID-19 Safety Plans firmly in place, it’s the perfect time to shout your teacher to a night at the flicks. The Cinema Card can be used at any cinema that accepts eftpos around Australia. 

For the homebody

Thanks to the Home Card, you can treat your teacher to something cosy from the best home and furniture brands (not to mention avoid giving them yet another staff room mug). 

For the foodie

Whether your teacher is a cravat-wearing gourmet aficionado or simply needs a night out, the Restaurant Card can be used at any Aussie restaurant or cafe that accepts eftpos. 

For the one who needs a holiday!

And don’t we all?! Nothing says ‘you deserve a break’ more than a beauty gift card. Whether it’s for a massage (yes please!), a facial, a manicure, a holiday tan or a haircut, the Pamper Card can be used at any salon, day spa or beauty clinic that accepts eftpos. 

Decided which gift card suits your teacher best? Go it alone, or consider getting in touch with the class parent to go in together on an amazing group gift. Either way, you can be sure your teacher will give it full marks.
