This is a fantastic collection of ideas for the very best teacher gift ideas out there right now.

Thoughtful ways to say Thank You – and could be as a present for the End of the School Year, For Christmas, or for any other special time.

Wherever your child is in their school life (pre-school, infant, junior, secondary) there’s the perfect idea that will be just right for them to give to that special teacher who’s made a difference in their life.

You can even find personalised gifts in the mix as well!

Enjoy – and I hope they help give you inspiration for presents for all your kids teachers this year…

There comes a time in every school year that parents can be heard asking very familiar questions around the country…

“What are great thank you gifts for teachers?”

“What do teachers actually LIKE to get as gifts?”

and “What can we get that’s a bit unique this year?”

It’s often the case that we struggle to balance getting something they will truly like to receive, with our budget – and so I thought I’d share today some of the gifts I have either given in the past or am thinking of giving in the future.

There are options for every budget, style, teacher etc… so I hope it gives you inspiration for what to buy your kids teacher this year…

What to think about when buying a teacher a present

In a class of 30 children, it’s likely that a teacher will end up with at least 20 presents at the end of the school year. Parents want to acknowledge the year in some way, and show their appreciation.

This is lovely, of course, but 20 presents can be a lot to deal with!

And while it’s so nice to be given presents, there are some ways to make the lovely gesture of giving them something WITHOUT overwhelm setting in…

#1 – Gather together a few of the parents and buy something together.

#2 – Buy something practical that they have a need for. This could be something they use at home OR at school, but will help them in some way.

#3 – Get them something they will use up so they won’t have to store it anywhere. Although ornaments and mugs can be a lovely thought, teachers will end up with cupboards full of them if they’re not careful!

Ideally I wouldn’t look to give things that will add clutter to their homes as much as possible, or something they are likely to get multiples of.

And with that in mind, here are some ideas for you…

Best Teacher Gift Ideas That They'll Really Love This Year - 350

There you have it – lots of great gifts for teachers with hopefully some things that maybe you hadn’t thought of before.

There are, of course, some other more generic presents which would also work really well and be loved – so I have included a few here too: –

  • Vouchers – why not group together and get a voucher for a shop you know the teacher would like – they can then treat themselves over the holidays to something they need/want. Some ideas for what to buy would be a spa voucher, an experience treat, an amazon voucher so they can buy what they want, or for a shop that you know they love.
  • Flowers – always a lovely idea! You could also do similar for a male teacher as well as female by switching flowers to a plant or even herbs. A few herbs in pots is useful AND gorgeous to look at!
  • Homemade gifts – your child could do a bit of baking, or make some artwork for their teacher. Or, what about a little basket of a few goodies that they would enjoy? Wrap them simply and add a tag with your child writing what they’ve loved about the year on it.
  • A lovely bottle of wine / something they love to eat – always a winner! Creating a little hamper makes it more special as well. A few things in a simple basket, wrapped with clear wrapping and tied with a ribbon looks amazing!
