Giving gifts to special education teachers during the Christmas season is a great way to to show appreciation for their efforts, patience, and understanding offered to your little ones and the not so little ones, especially if your child is non-verbal or has tantrums or meltdowns and they are a handful and quite challenging to take care in school.

Christmas is indeed a great time to celebrate the kindness and dedication of the special needs teachers. Something simple, but valuable that you can share with them, they being your kids’ second parents, will surely be appreciated.

  1. This is such a thoughtful and sweet post! I love that you’re taking time to get to know the teachers and recognize them for all their hard work. You have some very thoughtful gift ideas. Which one is your favorite? I have been wanting the Ninja Express Chop. You’ve made it very each for people to go right to the gift and purchase, which is super helpful. Great post!

    • Hi Christina,

      Thank you for your nice words. Our SPED teachers and their assistants really deserve our gratitude not only in words but also in physical gifts, even the most simple ones.

      I love giving books, maybe I would choose story books or coloring books for female teachers and a planner for the males.



  2. Some great ideas there, finding Christmas presents for people is always a pet hate for me, my mind just goes blank, It is always a good idea to follow somebody else’s list especially when you have done all the research, teachers and alike are always difficult to buy for because very often we don’t know them on a personal level, I also love that you have included links on Amazon, couldn’t be easier well done.

  3. These are so many good proposals ! I especially like the daily planner , the mandala book and the scented candles. Something practical and some for relaxation and calmness. Now approaching Christmas we have a messenger group for the parents in our daughters class and this list is just perfect for us ! Thank you for such a nice post ! 

    • Hi Jonah,

      Thanks for your nice words. I’m happy that I have provided good ideas for your Christmas list.

      Enjoy your shopping.



  4. Marita, thank you for your dedication to this website. It’s a beautiful homage to your sister. 

    Your post lists some great potential gifts for the student’s teacher and definitely gives me ideas on what to get my fiancée (she works as a SPED assistant)! The layout of the post is simple to follow along and the phrases underneath make for awesome commentary. I can’t wait to see what else is in store! 🙂
