While giving teacher an apple may not be the done thing anymore, buying them a thoughtful gift such as a personalised notebook or bouquet of fresh, fragrant flowers is an increasingly popular way to say ‘thank you’.
And remember- teachers don’t have to be confined to the classroom either. Many of us receive valued lessons from musicians, tutors, neighbours and friends. Show your appreciation for the teachers who have helped you learn more about the world around you and send them a memorable gift.
Here are our top 10 ten gift ideas for teachers:
