Teacher Gifts and Hampers

Browse our full range of luxury teacher gifts and hampers specially created to say thank you or celebrate exam success!

Whether you're looking for teacher Christmas gifts, a teacher hamper for end of year or a ‘sorry you're leaving' present you'll be sure to find something to suit.

Your teacher hamper will contain food selected from Britain's finest artisan producers and will be hand tied in ribbon and delivered with your personalised gift card.

Why do we give gifts to teachers?

On the surface, it may seem that teachers work a steady 9-5 day and enjoy the lengthy school holidays that pupils get to.

In reality, this is not the case. Teachers work very long hours, often over the weekend and during the school holidays. In fact, 70% of teachers in the UK have reported having a workload too large!

With this in mind, it's a great idea to show appreciation to our teachers that go above and beyond with our children. They're such a significant part of children's lives and their development, and so it's important to show gratitude when they're doing the job well.

What gifts to send a teacher?

The gifts for teachers' section in the supermarket almost always contains an array of chocolates, biscuits, and teacher mugs. These have always been popular teacher gifts as they're affordable for a pupil to spend their pocket money on. Plus, they're great additions to the staff room!

Food and drink is always a great option as it's loved by everyone and is therefore a great choice when you don't know someone well enough to know specifically what's on their wish list.  

If you're looking for more thoughtful teacher gifts though, perhaps consider a luxury food hamper. With a personalised note and premium British food, it'll stand out from the more standard packets of biscuits and chocolate.

Gift baskets for teachers are also thoughtful as the teacher can keep the empty hamper afterwards!

You could even choose a hamper that contains a mug for the teacher, which they'll be able to use every day.

When is the best time to send a teacher gift?

The most popular time to send best teacher gifts is at the end of the school year, or at Christmas. But there are other reasons and occasions too.

Gifts for teachers for Christmas is a brilliant way to say, ‘thank you for helping me teacher'. It's highly likely the teacher has put on some Christmas themed activities for the children to make them feel festive, so it's a good opportunity to reciprocate the effort.

End of term gifts are most given right at the end of the school year, in July. Many pupils come together to shower staff with special teacher gifts – showing their gratitude for looking after them for a year.

Teachers leaving gifts are also very popular, wishing the teacher luck in their new role. Many choose funny gifts for teachers or unusual teacher gifts so that the teacher has something to remember the pupil by.

If your child is in nursery, another opportunity to show appreciation is to give ‘thank you nursery gifts' as your child leaves to move onto school. It's likely the nursery teachers will have significantly helped your child's development, so gifts for nursery teachers will always be appreciated.

Top occasions for teacher gifts:

-         Lockdown teacher gifts

-         Back to school gifts

-         Thank you teacher gifts

-         End of term gifts

-         Gifts for new teachers

-         Teacher xmas gifts

-         Teachers leaving gifts

What do teachers really want for gifts?

The best teacher gift is probably a classroom of well-behaved kids!

Aside from that, previous surveys have found that most teachers are more than happy with a simple verbal ‘thank you' or a thank you note. But that's not to say they don't appreciate a physical thank you teacher gift too!

Below is a list of ideas for teacher gifts that are valued by teachers, according to surveys:

-         Tea and coffee gifts

-         Handwritten cards and chocolate

-         Homemade gifts

-         Best teacher mug

-         Wine and food gifts

-         Notebooks or stationery gifts

How much should you spend on teacher gifts?

If you ask a teacher, they'll desperately ask you to not spend too much. Gifts for teachers are becoming much more popular and teachers don't want parents or pupils feeling the pressure to spend.

So, the amount you spend is completely up to you. Your child could make a lovely, homemade card which will be very well received by any teacher. Or parents could group together and spend more money on something larger, such as a luxury food hamper or a Champagne gift.

Best hamper for lockdown teacher gifts

Your teacher will have had an incredibly tough year or so adjusting to the chaos of lockdown education. One thing in particular comes to mind as an idea for lockdown teacher gifts: wine!

Send them the Red Wine Delight Hamper – a hamper full of British artisan snacks and a bottle of top-notch red wine.

Best gift for teacher leaving school

It's always sad to see a special teacher leave the school if they've had a positive impact on your child. This is the perfect opportunity to gather some parents together and splash out on a large hamper to celebrate the teacher's success.

How about The Weekend Pamper Hamper – an incredibly special teacher gift with Prosecco, a candle, and an array of top-quality treats.

Best hamper for a back to school gift

It's becoming increasingly common for pupils to gift their teacher on their return to school as they enter a new year. This is more a token of appreciation – a pre-emptive ‘thank you for helping me teacher' gift.

How about our Traditional Treats Hamper – a thoughtful teacher gift that will surprise and delight.

Best gift for teachers for Christmas

A hamper will stand out from the crown at Christmas when the teacher is showered with chocolate and best teacher mugs.

One of our favourite gift baskets for teachers is our Luxury Family Sharing Hamper. Presented in beautiful wicker, the teacher can keep the wicker basket for storage in the classroom!

How are the teacher gifts presented?

Our gifts for teachers are presented in either traditional wicker baskets, or in our high quality, British themed hamper boxes. Both are reusable and recyclable and many recipients hold onto the hampers as keepsakes!

Each hamper includes a gift card with your message – so they make great personalised teacher gifts.

Inside the hamper, the food and drink is packaged carefully with high quality paper shred to protect the items during transit.

How are the gifts for teachers delivered?

We use a reputable courier to deliver all our best teacher gifts. They're always sent on a tracked service so that you can monitor delivery progress.

We offer UK delivery and UK next working day delivery for our teacher gifts. If you have a teacher abroad that you'd like to thank, we also offer international delivery for our gifts for teachers.
