How to say thank you to your teacher
Often unsung heroes, teachers work tirelessly to help children bloom. Treasure your child’s favourite teachers by sending them a ‘thank you, teacher’ gift at the end of the academic year or after a busy exam season.
'Thank you, teacher’ gifts
Teachers pour all their effort and energy into nurturing children, so it’s important to show your appreciation for all their hard work.
But thinking up the perfect present for that extra special teacher can be a challenge. That’s why we’ve collated a selection of our favourite ‘thank you, teacher’ gifts.
Our Sweet Nostalgia Gift Sack will have your teacher reminiscing about their own school days as they delve into goodies just as sweet as they are.
Also perfect for those with a sweet tooth, our Chocolicious Gift Bag features chocolate cake and fudge, which always go down a treat. For a quintessentially British gift, look no further than our Delectable Afternoon Tea Tray, with Darjeeling tea and lemon drizzle melts.
Why not add a tropical touch to their home with an exotic pineapple plant? Not only is it a great conversation starter, but it’s also a fun gift for you and your child to pick out together.
Bottle of Bubbly Treat your child’s teacher to a bottle of bubbly! Go the extra mile with Sparkling Rosé so they can let the good times flow as soon as the summer holidays hit. Or go for an indulgent gift of Champagne and Belgian Chocolates for an extra special ‘thank you’ gift they truly deserve.
You can’t go wrong with a bunch of lilies to show your appreciation for your son or daughter’s favourite teacher. Or a handful of sweet peas for the teacher that made this year a little sweeter. Sweet peas are a traditional flower for expressing thanks that will make a delightful addition to any ‘thank you’ flower bouquet.
Show your teacher you care with some hydrangeas, which in Japanese culture convey the message: “Thank you for understanding”. Blue hydrangeas strongly symbolise this gratitude, and pink resembles powerful, heartfelt emotion.
Back to basics
You can’t go wrong with gifting your favourite teacher some state-of-the-art stationery. From luxury leather-bound notebooks to regal fountain pens, these little luxuries will surely come in handy during an evening of marking. You could even personalise diaries and notebooks with their name as an extra, thoughtful touch.
Rest and relaxation
Present your teacher with a beautifully scented candle to help them unwind after a busy year. Choose calming and relaxing scents, such as jasmine, chamomile and lavender, to show that you appreciate their hard work. Bath salts or luxurious body lotions are also considerate ‘thank you, teacher’ gifts, encouraging them to take time for themselves after a hectic day looking after the children.
