5 Thoughtful Gifts for Teachers from Small British Businesses

Can you believe that the school holidays are almost here? And if there's anyone who's more excited about them than the kids it's their teachers! My husband used to be a teacher and I can confirm that his excitement about the summer holidays was unparalleled.

It's been another tough year for teachers, having to run their lessons remotely throughout lockdown is not easy and so I'm sure you'll want to show your appreciation of their hard work with a little gift.

But first, I imagine you'll want a card to go with your gift. Here's my lovely personalised thank you teacher card. It always goes down well.

Thank You Teacher Card   

And now onto the gifts. I've hand selected 5 really thoughtful gifts from small British businesses that will put a smile on your kid's teacher's face...  


1. Personalised Herb Seed Gift Tin


A unique gift from Cotton Twist that I'm sure they won't have received before!  A gift tin, personalised with their name and a message, containing a selection of four herb seed packets & miniature stakes. This tin is a perfect little keepsake to thank teachers for their endless patience & time in helping your little ones grow.


2. Wooden Wall Plaque 

Thank You Teacher 'It Takes A Big Heart To Help Shape Little Minds' Wooden Wall Plaque

This gorgeous birch plywood wall hanging features a beautiful message for a special teacher. It would be equally well suited to hanging at home or in the classroom and will be treasured for a long time to come. It's screen printed by the lovely Steph of 'Flat102'.


3. Hexagon Tassel Earrings


A gift that will be kept for years to come. From the awesome Jack & Frida, these earrings are perfect for the summer holidays. They are lightweight, easy to wear with any outfit and available in a number of different tassel colours. 


4. Soy Wax & Essential Oil Candle


Candles are the perfect present for a teacher who is long overdue on some quality relaxation time! This heavenly candle contains an aromatherapy blend of luxurious essential oils and is handcrafted in small batches in the UK from 100% natural organic soy wax. I'm feeling more relaxed just writing about it! It's available from 'The Den & Now' a wonderful independent online homeware store. 


5. Leather Keyring


With their hectic schedule it's not surprising that teachers lose their keys sometimes! This leather keyring from the fabulous Honey & Toast will help them keep hold of them. It's a seriously useful gift that will last them a lifetime. Handmade in Somerset this super simple, super chic keyring comes in a selection of their signature colours. 


Well there you go. I hope you find something that's just right for your kid's teacher/s. Whatever gift you get, if you really want to make it stand out then grab some of my luxury strawberry gift wrap. What says British summertime more than strawberries! 

Strawberry Gift Wrap

Add the matching gift tag, stickers and ribbon to pull out all the stops. The only trouble is your gift will look so good that the teacher might not want to open it! 

Lots of love,
