The end of the summer term is fast approaching, which means it's nearly time to give your child's teacher a thank you gift for all their hard work over the past year. Which can leave you in a bit of a dilemma ...
You don't want to go over budget - but you also don't want to give another box of chocolates from the supermarket or an off the shelf High Street bath products set. And you really haven't got time to trawl the shops or craft a home made present from scratch in the next three weeks!
Does this sound like you? Don't despair - we've done our homework with this end of term shopping guide for you, including ten lovely, thoughtful gifts from our online store. Read on to keep sane and bag a brilliant present too!
Teachers' gifts for under £10.00 ...
This pretty ornament is hand painted with an intricate hazarra - or thousand flowers - design, and is crafted by Kashmiri artisans using the traditional art form of paper mâché. Children will love to give this to their favourite teacher.
If you know the teacher's birthday, choosing one of these cute little angels in their birthstone colour would be a great personalised gift! And if you don't, they come in a host of different colours, so just pick the one you like the most.
A perfect way to help any teacher relax and recover after a year in the classroom! This lavender infused bath bomb and soap also comes with an amethyst crystal, which promotes much needed balance, clarity and calm.
This practical, award winning bird nester developed in conjunction with TV’s naturalist and wildlife cameraman Simon King, is perfect for attracting robins and small garden birds. Great for nature lovers and educational too!
What teacher wouldn't love this unusual gift? The owl represents wisdom, especially that which is as yet unknown, and it's also a very practical item for someone who has to do a lot of reading in their line of work ...
Whether it's coming home or not later this year (unlikely we suspect), any football fan will enjoy taking their drinks with them on the go in these fan-tastic mugs! Great for after school coaching when term starts again, too.
This charming little candle holder is pretty and practical. Hand crafted by a local glass artist in Warwickshire, each one is a unique piece. It comes with a tea light ready to use, and is presented in its own organza bag.
This bright pink floral design creates a real wow factor, and the glass is beautifully packaged too. A stunning, unusual gift for any teacher who's looking forward to appreciating the long summer days until school beckons again!
PLUS two bonus gift ideas for over £10:
Beautiful blooms hand crafted from soap - they look realistic but will last a long longer than real flower. Scatter the petals in water for a luxurious bathtime treat with a lingering scent that will again aid relaxation for a weary teacher!
This one is for a very special teacher! Spirit balls were traditionally used to ward off bad luck and evil spirits, who would be attracted to and trapped by the coloured glass strands inside the balls. A stylish, meaningful gift to treasure.
