The Best End of Year Gift Ideas for Teachers

By Stacy Curry - 7th June 2024

Find the Perfect Gift with Our Teacher Tiny Matchbox Dried Flower Posy

As the end of the school year approaches, it’s time to think about how to thank the teachers who work tirelessly to help, support, and teach our children. Finding a way to express your appreciation without resorting to the same clichéd patterns as every year can be difficult. 

What do teachers want as gifts?

Finding the right gift for your teacher is challenging; everyone is different, and the present should strike the perfect balance between practicality and persona. We have curated this list of unique, fun and classroom-friendly gifts that will not only make your teacher's year but also help you stand out from the crowd.

Classroom decoration gifts for teachers

Teachers' classrooms always benefit from a little sprucing up, as they are sacred spaces where both teachers and children spend many hours a day learning. This is why we can't think of anything better than giving a teacher something fun and charming to decorate their classroom with. Such a special gift will not only remind them of the joy of teaching your little one, but it will also help brighten up their space, making it a warm and welcoming environment for all.

If your teacher is known for their upbeat, can-do attitude, then our Weekly Positivity Floral Desktop Flip Chart will make a great addition to their desk. Not only is it a nice decorative addition to their space, but they will also be able to indulge in positive affirmations while sharing uplifting mantras with their class each week.

Delicious food & drink gifts for teachers

If your teacher is always bringing leftovers for lunch or whipping up gourmet salads and sandwiches, then the Sass and Belle Danish Pastel Lunch Bag is perfect. The stylish and practical lunch bag ensures their meals stay tasty and fresh, making lunchtime something to look forward to even more. 

Classically, gifting a teacher a ripe, crisp apple has always gone down well. However, some foodie gifts can last a little longer than their expiration date. Mix food and cute with the Tiny Matchbox Ceramic Apple Teacher Token. This charming ceramic apple can be placed on their desk in pride of place, serving as a constant reminder of your appreciation. Every time they look at it, they will think fondly of you or your child.

With so many tempting food and drink gift options available, it will be easy to find the perfect gift. No matter what you choose, it'll be a mouth-watering treat to mark the start of summer.

Is lunchtime your teacher's favourite time of the day? Is food always at the forefront of their mind, whether during evening or weekend plans? If so, we have some delicious recommendations. While food and drink gifts are often a smash hit, we've got some suggestions that add a fun twist to a classic gift.

Alcohol can be a great way for teachers to unwind at the end of term, but how about trying something different, like Gnaw Gin & Tonic Milk Chocolate? Infused with botanicals that have gin-like properties. Or let your little one choose a popular snack in a fun flavour they think their teacher would enjoy, such as the Popcorn Shed Birthday Cake Gourmet Popcorn or The Chocolate Gift Company Chocolate Mallow Mouthfuls which are both excellent choices.
