Is it possible to have too much of a good thing? Ask a teacher on the last day of term going home with twelve selection boxes and seven bunches of carnations and they might just say yes.
But teacher gifts don't have to be the same old every year. If you're looking for a really personal way of saying "thank you" to a superhero teacher who's given nothing but support all year, we've put together a collection of great ideas.
After all, teachers leave a lasting impression long after the school year has ended, so make theirs a gift to remember, and show them how much they're appreciated.
Those blissful summer holidays are as longed for by the teachers just as much as the children (if not more!) Travel accessories make a great send off for a teacher that deserves a restful break. Our brand new personalised sunglasses case or refillable travel journals are perfect for taking on summer holidays and will look super stylish on the desk back in the classroom.
Keyrings always make ideal gifts because everyone is sure to need one and they they get taken everywhere you go so perfect for making a mark. Our ever-popular Personalised Leather Loop Keyring can be engraved with a special "thank you" message, while our coloured leather keyring or tassel make initials look fabulous.
One for the guys - our personalised wooden cufflinks are a smart but fun addition to daily teaching attire. Available in square or round and in two wood types, the cufflinks can be engraved with names, initials or a short message and come with a personalised box where you can engrave a "thank you" note.
What do teachers need before facing a day in charge of 30 children? Coffee. And what does coffee need? A personalised coaster of course (!) For a traditional apple themed gift this chunky solid wood coaster is the one for you, or for something more subtle, our new spiral text teacher coaster will sit smartly at home or in the classroom.
Looking for a greetings card like no other? An engraved wooden telegram is a quirky take on tradition and a wonderful keepsake to treasure. A "thank you" note that will make a lasting impression.
For something a bit festive at the end of the Christmas term, our personalised teacher baubles are the perfect way to say thank you. Our 'Star Teacher' decoration is ideal for a teacher who works magic, or our jigsaw decoration is perfect for someone that helps fit the pieces together.
