Tasty Christmas Gift Ideas for Teachers

herb-packageWho doesn’t love receiving edible gifts? Especially when they are homemade and have been bundled, decorated or wrapped with a personal touch.

Don’t get us wrong, flowers are lovely but we think herbs are just as lovely and have the added bonus of being practical (if your teacher likes to cook that is!)

Simply pick a bunch of fresh herbs from your garden, wrap in craft paper and secure with a personalised sticker. You could also tie with string and handmade card. Dried herbs would also work well but nothing beats the smell of fresh mint, rosemary or thyme!

 

strawberry-banana-butterHomemade jam is also a winner, particularly if made with your own homegrown fruit. Did you know that we have two strawberry varieties available in our Fruit range? What could be more fulfilling than growing your own strawberries then making your own jam to give as a gift?

We made some strawberry coconut jam and strawberry banana butter (yes, we love strawberries!) and decorated the jars with recycled material and handmade cards using cardboard, string, paper and ink stamps sourced from K Mart. How cute are they?

Of course our Growing Kits make awesome teacher gifts too and just for the next two weeks, we’re happily taking orders from everyone, not just fundraising groups! If you’d like to purchase some of our kits, please get in touch. At just $6, they’re both affordable and unique!
