Whether you have just graduated, have received your A Level results, or it’s your last day at primary school, if a teacher has made a difference in your school term you’ll want to thank them.
Whatever you buy will no doubt be appreciated but if you are counting your pennies then you don’t want to buy something that will end up being re-gifted.
With this in mind we have chosen ten of the best thank you teacher gifts that we are sure will be cherished, and more importantly used, for years to come:
Vintage Apple Mug in Gift Box – £6.95
Made from porcelain, this uses a vibrant print that will brighten up any classroom or home. Safe to use in the dishwasher and microwave, and there are other pretty designs available.
Vintage Ivy Flask and Cup – £12.95
Flasks are making a huge comeback and replacing the typical coffee travel mug. This one is both practical and looks pretty, and is made using stainless steel, features a cup and holds a decent 350ml.
Library Stamp Women’s T-shirt – £19.99
If your English teacher is always telling you to renew your library card, saying that it is your greatest tool for a good mark in your exams then she’ll love this library stamp tee-shirt. Available in a variety of colours and sizes.
Emma Bridgewater Wallflowers Reed Diffuser 200ml – £20
Everyone loves a fresh scent and this diffuser from Emma Bridgewater not only looks gorgeous but is pretty enough to stand on a school desk or at home. The refreshing fragrance is bergamot and tangerine which is complimented by warming cardamom, nutmeg and just a touch of vanilla.
Morris & Co Pen Set – £20
You can try and bribe your teacher into giving you the best marks by presenting her with this lovely pen set that includes a delightful little gift bag (useful for the pen and lipsticks!) and all presented in a gorgeous gift box.
Nuclear Physics Socks – £6.99
If your physics teacher was anything like ours he was a little eccentric and wore woolly ties and funny socks. This pair of socks feature scientific diagrams and formulae and are perfect for your dotty professor.
Personalised Tie Hanger – £12.99
What male teacher these days doesn’t have a load of different ties that amuse his classroom? Give him somewhere to stash them with this handy tie hanger, made from natural wood and able to hang 20 individual ties. You can also engrave it with your teachers name making it extra special.
Dictionary Definition Personalised Teacher Mug – £12.99
Suitable for any teacher that has gone the extra mile for his students, as you can personalise this mug and add five lines of your own choosing to make it extra special to them. So for instance, add his name, his attributes, what are his favourite things and what are they good at?
Gentlemen’s Hardware Enamel Espresso Cup Set – £17
If your PE teacher loves camping, or your swimming coach loves the great outdoors then this pair of espresso sized mugs will make a perfect thank you gift. Made from rolled steel and coated with a cream coloured enamel coating.
Not that we are saying that any teacher has a drink problem, but surely many of them have a tipple or two once they’ve finished work and put their feet up? This gift includes a bottle of Speyside single malt whisky and a packet of all butter Scottish shortbread with a lovely Speyside glass, all beautifully presented in a gift box.
