5 gift ideas for teachers that are eco-friendly

**This article has been translated automatically and will be reviewed soon.**

Only a few days of school left! And it's time to say thank you to our teachers and soon, our educators for this wonderful year spent taking care of our children.

So this is the time when we are bombarded from everywhere - by a host of companies - to buy personalized gifts. From the endless “Thank you for being a great educator” mugs to the “Thank you for being in…’s life” bookmarks.


Let's say we want to go further and we want to offer something that will be really useful, for the person and for the planet ... what do we do?

In fact, it's a bit of the same questioning as at Christmas, but for people we know a little less.

Here is a top 5 of the best gifts to give at the end of school.


Soaps, tea/coffee, chocolates…

This is the most obvious and easiest to buy. Prefer a local/fair trade option without too much packaging if you want to take care of our beautiful planet.

If you know that the person is eco-friendly , you can even offer them a small Bateau Bateau pouch to introduce them to our beautiful products. Tissues are always useful! Maybe don't offer washable toilet paper though, even if everyone uses it daily, not everyone has a bidet...! 😆


It's cool to offer something alive! And it can be free if you offer the baby of one of your own plants.

In addition, the beautiful inspiring phrases that you like so much that companies offer on cups, well it is sold to apply wherever you want, so you can even apply a beautiful phrase on the pot.. or to make it simpler and free , ask your child to paint/draw the pot.


It could be tickets for water slides to cool off before summer comes.

We can also think of an outing to throw axes, so that he/she can let off some steam after a hectic year or a wine tasting circuit to forget a little about this hectic year!


Games are a good way to unwind and have a good time with friends or family! But it's not always easy to offer a game. The best thing is to allow him to try lots of them in a fun pub. Give him a gift card to a pub, it will definitely be appreciated!


Our teachers and educators really need it! Offer them a day in a Nordic spa, an entry into a national park or even a night in a dome in the forest... It will please them as much as do them the greatest good!


General rule: think about gifts that don't accumulate... and that won't go to the trash after 5 years because the person will no longer remember "who is Zachary"?

Besides, it's possible to make a group gift, that way, we're offering something much more interesting than 20 different little things that come from each child. Simply contact the parents of the class in secret to organize a big collective gift!

Remember that your child has left a mark on his or her heart throughout the year. There is no need to remind him of his passage through yet another object which may not be useful in the end.

And if it's to thank him/her, a thank you can be much more impactful with an experience gift card offered with the biggest hugs from all the students in the class.
