School is nearly out, and there’s bound to be a few things on your ‘To Do’ list – buying cards for teachers and teaching assistants, end of year assemblies, perhaps even a school nativity – it’s a pretty hectic schedule, on top of everything else at this time of year! Click here to view all of our stallholders and shop cards and gifts.

It’s time to consider getting a little thank you gift for class teachers or even teaching assistants. Rather than just grabbing a supermarket box of chocolates, see what our stallholders have in store.

Read on for our Teacher Gift Ideas…

  1. Chocolate

You can’t go wrong with a box of chocolates! Have them delivered to your door so you don’t even need to venture out – and there’s vegan options too. Starting from £3.95, you can’t go wrong.

Check out these makers below… 

Cocoa Drop has some fantastic choices, as does Made at the Meadow, and R&M Fine Chocolate serve up the finest kosher chocolate too!

2. Plants

Everyone loves a plant, right? Even for those of us that are less green-fingered, a cactus could be a good idea. Or even a macrame hanger (very on trend right now) or pot to hold it in!

Check out Cactus Parlour for some excellent cactii, Sefton Macrame for macrame goods, and Denise O’Sullivan Ceramics for plant pots and vases – some great gifting inspiration. 

3. Craft Kits

People are favouring craft kits these days to give an ‘experience’ as a gift, rather than material goods. For someone you don’t know that well, it could be a good idea – and they’re a great mindful activity too, ideal for stressed teaching staff! Create Space have some ideal ones.

4. Candles

Everyone loves a candle! Clevedon Candle Co have some lovely ones.

5. Christmas Decorations

Pen & Gwyn and Immy & Boo have some of the sweetest decorations we’ve ever seen, and Fallow Moon offers cute decorations and personalised commissions too!

6. Stationery

Teachers always need stationery! Check out the cute notepads from Daffodowndilly below.

7. Eco-friendly gifts

Forever Wraps and The Hawthorn Co have some lovely sustainable wraps, and Woodcraft by Owen creates gorgeous wooden goods.
