Teachers and TAs have gone above and beyond over the last few months so we've rounded up five top thank you teacher gifts that they'll love, use and remember.
If it hasn’t happened to you yet, the emotions you feel when your child is leaving primary school are like no other and you’ll want to gift the TA/teacher well for looking after your baby as they leave the safe confines of small school and graduate up to big school.
5 of the best thank you gifts for teachers
1. Portable Travel Mug
Most teachers have one or more flasks of tea or coffee on their desk and trips to the staffroom to top up are sporadic at best. Treat your TA or teacher to the cream or charcoal W+P Design Porter Travel Thermal Mug.
It’s made from durable ceramic and wrapped in protective matte silicone and makes for a high-quality replacement to disposable, plastic or metal to-go mugs.
It’s suitable for both hot and cold beverages and keeps hot drinks hot, and cold drinks cold.
Add some organic tea or award-winning coffee to their gift box and they’ll love you forever!
2. Pens + Pencils
Educators can never have enough pens and pencils and a handy pack of gel pens will help make an evening marking books slightly more enjoyable.
We’re slightly partial to our ‘Friencils’ pencils and their upbuilding and positive sayings.
Chocolate always makes for a good gift and we’ve got a variety of flavours to suit all tastes. If they’re vegan or avoiding dairy, try the le chocolat des Francais organic 71% dark chocolate bar.
We also have organic bars in sweet milk chocolate, and milk chocolate and hazelnuts. They won’t be sharing these with their students!
4. Mindfulness Journal
Educating kids is hard! If you were forced to home school your kids in 2020, like us, you probably have a new and profound respect for teachers and TAs!
They aren’t paid enough for the hard work and dedication required but you can gift them wellness with a mindfulness journal.
The Positive Planner is full of useful tools designed to enhance positivity and manage wellbeing.
You can choose to put The Positive Planner in our Mindfulness Gift Box along with a chocolate bar of your choice. The Friencils pencils mentioned earlier are also included.
Mind Notes is designed to help users pinpoint thought and behaviour patterns, encourage the practice of gratitude and use weekly exercises to increase a sense of positive wellbeing for a more fulfilled life.
5. Wellbeing Gift Box
Give a gift that takes wellbeing and self-care to new and indulgent levels!
The Wellbeing Gift Box contains relaxing organic chamomile tea, a silk sleep mask, a cinnamon and nutmeg candle, hand cream and our favourite, The Little Book Of Self Care.
From self-massage to decluttering, The Little Book of Self-Care provides relaxation exercises to help the reader focus on their personal needs in an enjoyable way. As we know, caring for yourself means you’re in a better position to care for others.
All of our gifts and gift boxes come with a handwritten card so feel free to express your heartfelt sentiments to your teachers and TAs to say thank you for a job well done.
