7 Gifts Teachers Actually Want: Essential Teacher Gift Guide
It’s nearly the last day of term & children & parents all over the country will be thanking their teacher with gifts.
As teachers, we work super hard all year & this small token of appreciation seriously means a lot. We don’t expect these gifts &, actually, a simple ‘thank you’ at the end of the year gives us all the feels. Some of the best presents I have received over the years were those wonderful cards & drawings various children had made for me. Those that were stuck to my classroom walls for many years. However, as the popularity of buying presents for teachers increases, choosing the right gift is not always easy. Do you buy something? Make something?
Don’t worry – there’s still time to decide! If you do choose to buy a present I’ve teamed up with Funky Pigeon to help you find the perfect gift, including some specially selected personalised items.
Unicorn – Weekly Planner (£7.99)
There is nothing more important to a teacher than being organised! That’s why this magical unicorn planner is on our list of perfect gifts – a lovely way for teachers to organise their working week. It also comes with a ‘To Do List’ section which, quite frankly, is never ending so remembering everything by writing it down is a big help! This A4 planner also comes with free stickers & happy headings such as Magical Monday.
Full Photo Elite Personalised Chocolates (£24.99)
Chocolates are the most popular item given to teachers, & I can testify that they never go to waste in my house! This gorgeous Lily O’Brien chocolate selection box can be personalised to make it extra special & with chocolate treats such as Zesty Orange & Himalayan Salted Caramel, you can’t go far wrong. Upload a photo of your child or perhaps the latest class photo into the box’s framed cover for a keepsake.
Star Teacher Tote Bag (£8.99)
Funky Pigeon do an in-house range of personalised tote bags, including this Star Teacher one. Ideal for carrying marking, notebooks or folders, this tote bag can be easily customised to include your child’s teachers name.
Super Teacher Personalised Notebook (from £4.99)
At the end of the school year teachers’ notebooks are normally pretty full! As notebooks are a teacher’s best friend, upgrading them to a new, personalised one would make an ideal gift. There’s plenty of notebooks to choose from the Funky Pigeon site, but we love this Boom Boom Wow Super Teacher book most.
Most Wonderful Teacher Photo Mug (from £7.99)
Teacher’s will love this bright & colourful mug – it will certainly stand out in the staff room! And with your child’s teachers name on there – well there will be no mistaking who it belongs to… You can also add a photo. Choose between a standard or large size – perhaps a larger size for that hot drink fix at break-times!
Phalanaenopsis Single Flower Spike Orchid (£32)
Teachers often receive lots of bunches of flowers at the end of the school year &, although exceedingly grateful for them, we are often going on holiday & so don’t get the chance to fully appreciate them. Instead, buying a pot plant such as this Moth Orchid is the ideal solution. It’s contemporary & super easy to care for. Not only will it last all holiday, but it will brighten up the classroom at the start of the new school year.
This Teacher Rocks Cushion (£19.99)
Our final pick of teacher gifts is this gorgeous cushion which can be personalised by customising the text. Teachers spend a lot of time working at their desks so make our experience comfier with a soft cushion to sit on!
We know that there is so much to pay out for, especially coming up to the school holidays, so Funky Pigeon also have a range of budget teacher gift ideas such as keyrings & coasters. Head over to Funky Pigeon to take a look.
