Teachers work hard for us and our children all year round, so why not show your appreciation this year with a thank you teacher gift?
Gifting teachers not only shows them that their hard work is appreciated and motivates them for the remainder of the school year but also shows your children the importance of gratitude and saying thank you.
But what should you buy a teacher for Christmas? You don’t have to spend big on teacher gifts, it’s the thought that counts after all.
Here are our top teacher Christmas gift recommendations…
1. A thank you teacher Christmas card
Personal, memorable and you don’t have to cost an arm and a leg.
Purchase a card online or have your child make their own using paper, pencils and crayons and add a handwritten message thanking their teacher.
This is a gift they’re sure to appreciate and won’t forget anytime soon.
2. A personalised or best teacher mug
Opt for a teacher Christmas gift mug like this one for a personalisable gift that will have them feeling festive all through the holidays.
An enamel coated tin mug, this thank you teacher present makes an ideal Christmas gift - sure to keep them going through the stacks of papers in need of marking over the holidays.
Perfect for teas, coffees and perhaps even the odd mulled wine or two (or five…it’s the holidays after all!).
We may be a little biased, but we think food hampers make great gifts for all occasions, especially Christmas and teachers are sure to love a gift of artisan foodie treats!
But whether you give them an all-encompassing luxury food hamper or a simple chocolate box is up to you.
If you’d like to send a thank you teacher hamper, order a hamper with us and have it delivered directly to the school or have it sent to your home address and take it in with you.
Our Premium Traditional Hamper is a popular thank you teacher end of term gift.
4. A relaxation gift set
We all know that teachers have stressful jobs, so a gift to help them relax over the holidays is sure to be appreciated.
Look for a pamper hamper or relaxation gift like this one for a hug in a box treat.
5. A Christmas ornament
A charming thank you teacher Christmas gift like this one will make a lovely decoration for their Christmas tree.
Made from 4mm oak veneer with metallic gold ribbon, the decoration reads “it takes a big heart to help shape little minds” – how sweet!
And it can be used year after year. Each time it’s used will remind the teacher of your child and how important their work is for shaping the minds of the future.
6. A notebook gift for teachers
They’re always writing, so how about gifting them a notebook they’re sure to use?
This faux leather notebook is super soft and it can be personalised with your teacher’s name – an extra special and personal gift!
7. A bottle of wine or bubbly
You can’t go wrong with a nice bottle and there are some brilliant non alcoholic options out there for non-drinkers too.
Opt for a crowd-pleasing bottle of white or red – even if it’s not their favourite, they can share it with their families at Christmas or even re-gift it.
Bottles of wine or bubbly are popular thank you teacher gifts for Christmas.
8. A personalised pen pot
A personalised teacher gift that’s practical too.
This oak pen pot is laser engraved with your chosen name and message.
Perfect for displaying on their classroom desk or in the home office!
9. A thank you teacher pencil set
Remind them what a great teacher they are each time they write with these funny teacher gift pencils.
Hand-foiled Surrey, these are HB #2 pencils in a black design with chic gold writing featuring a matching black eraser.
10. Thank you teacher flowers or a plant pot gift
A pot of poinsettia from your local shop will go down a treat as a gift for a flower loving teacher.
Want to add a bit more to the gift? Put the flowers or plant into this personalised plant pot.
