Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some commonly asked questions about buying teachers a gift.

Do teachers really want gifts?

You'll most likely hear something like "Oh you shouldn't have done that" when you give a teacher a gift, our teacher's are usually big givers & servants themselves and don't expect a gift. That said the act of showing appreciation for the special people who have contributed to our lives or our children lives is what truly matters. 

How much should I spend on teacher gifts in Australia?

Its not the price but the thought of the gift that matters, you can find something from between $10 to $20 dollars here.

What is the best gift to give a teacher?

The best gift to give your favourite educator is something that has meaning, put together a little story and pop it alongside your gift for something extra special .

Do teachers have to declare gifts in Australia?

Each Australian state has their own rules, See this great post on for more info, a good rule of thumb is to keep the value of the gift under $100.
