Teacher Gift Guide: 4 End of Term Gift Ideas for Your Child’s Favourite Teacher:

Handmade gifts

Handmade gifts are a great idea, especially if you’re on a budget. And also a great option if your child likes crafts or doing artsy things. There are endless handmade gifts you could make, from sweet treats to handmade candles or body lotions, drawings and paintings or even pottery.

Personalized teacher gifts

I love personalized gifts and always try and include personalized gifts on any occasion. A personalized teacher gift is a great idea because you know they won’t have anything like is! You can find personalized tote bags for teachers which are a great idea as you know they’ll be useful as well.

Fun earrings for teachers

If your child has a teacher who you know is fun and likes colourful clothes, then these teacher earrings might be a great choice for them! From ‘The Very Hungry Catapillar’ to colourful crayons to stacks of books, these will definitely be a unique gift idea that will leave them smiling at the end of term.


Lots of people see vouchers as a cop-out but I think that’s absolute rubbish. A voucher is a great idea, especially if you don’t really know what someone likes and don’t want to buy something that’s going to go to waste. A simple voucher for a free Starbucks coffee or a free book from Waterstones could be exactly what your teacher needs.

There are plenty of things that are appropriate to gift a teacher at the end of term. For more gift ideas, check out teachergive! Don’t forget, a small gift, a token of your appreciation could make their year of hard work seem worth it!
