Should you buy end-of-year teacher gifts?
Whilst you don’t have to, buying teacher gifts at the end of the academic year is a nice way to acknowledge all that they’ve done to help your child. We all know that teaching is an extremely important job, especially as they are helping shape our future generation, so recognising their passion and dedication with a symbolic gesture, like a thank you gift, is a nice way to show them how much you care.
How much should you spend on teacher gifts?
The gift you choose for your child’s teacher depends on the budget you have in mind. For a bigger budget, you might consider individual presents for each teacher that reflect the course subject or their personality.
If you don’t want to buy individual teacher gifts or if you have a particular budget to stick to, why not give something that the whole staff room can enjoy instead. Similarly, small token gestures will be just as appreciated so gifting a thoughtful present doesn’t have to break the bank.

To give you more gifting inspiration, we’ve put together a list of teacher gift ideas by course subject. Tailoring gifts to their specific subject helps add an extra touch of personalisation, so you can be sure to gift something that’s meaningful and a reflection of their personality and teaching style.
