Unique Thank You Gifts for Teachers

Hands up if you can’t quite believe it’s nearly the end of the academic year already! Here at TLB, we’re with you, it feels as though we’ve blinked and this last half-term has disappeared. And these last few weeks of term can feel pretty hectic. There is the juggle of sports days, end-of-year concerts, summer holiday planning and a million other things going on! So, let Team TLB relieve one of the stresses for you, with our carefully curated edit of thank you gifts for teachers. We’ve made it oh-so-easy for you to say thank you to those hardworking heroes at the end of the academic year with a range of teacher gift ideas.

Whether you’re looking for a token gift just from you and your child or you’ve been tasked with finding a gift from the whole class, our teacher gift ideas have got you covered. From cute succulents in personalised pots to larger plant gangs or wellbeing gift boxes, you’re sure to find something gold star worthy to suit your teacher gift needs.

Keep reading for a rundown of our top picks for end-of-term gifts. With gifts this good, there’ll be no detentions for you!

Make Your Teacher Gift Personal

Did you know that a range of our bespoke ceramics can now be personalised? Could there be any better way to say thank you to a particularly cherished teacher than with a gorgeous green beauty in a pot bearing the message ‘No. 1 Teacher’ or ‘Best Teacher’ or even their name. This is unique and thoughtful gifting at its best.

If you’re unsure which botanical to choose, why not take some inspiration from The Independent. They have hailed our personalised Miranda succulent (£15 – £16.50) in our signature black and gold pot as the best overall teacher’s gift. This gorgeous succulent is almost flower-like in appearance and so very easy to care for, making it a fab gift idea. And with a choice of 7 different ceramics, there’s sure to be one that your teacher will adore.

Alternatively, the funky Haworthia (£14.50 – £16) would also make a great choice from the personalised range. With similar easy-care credentials to the Miranda, it has a more distinctive, stripy appearance. This little guy is perfect for a teacher who likes to stand out from the crowd.

Whichever plant you choose, an easy-care succulent in a personalised pot is the perfect choice for a busy teacher who has gone the extra mile for your little one this year. We’re sure these thoughtful gifts will be cherished and cared for long after the summer holidays are over.

Gifts From the Class

As the end of term steadily approaches, we’re sure your class WhatsApp messages are pinging wildly. There will be back-and-forth ideas for teacher gifting and collection pots started to enable the whole class to contribute to a group gift. Perhaps you’re even the person who’s been tasked with finding a unique and interesting joint present.

Look no further. Our TLB range of large plants and plant bundles make an ideal teacher gift for the whole class to give.

We think the Calathea Trio Plant Gang in the limited-edition summer ceramics (£66) make a stunning gift for teachers. They’ll be able to keep them in the classroom for an injection of leafy colour or brighten up their home with stylish botanical vibes.

Alternatively, the Fern Trio Plant Gang (£56) also makes a wonderful gift when it comes to teacher gifting. The different colours and textures of the Boston, Asparagus and Blue Star varieties bring real texture and interest to an indoor jungle. They look just fab contrasted against the bright colours of the summer pots.

From our range of large plants, the Areca Palm (£95) in either our signature cotton and seagrass belly basket or grey ceramic pot is a definite winner. With his statement size, this guy brings all the botanical feels that the teacher is sure to love.

Wellbeing Gift Boxes

After a long year of working hard and looking after your children, why not help their teacher relax into the summer break with the gift of zen in the form of a TLB Wellbeing Gift Box. We’ve paired two luxury British brands, Aery and Wanderflower, to create the most gorgeously luxurious boxes that any teacher is sure to cherish.

Take a look at the Nurture Those Hands – Happy Space Gift Box (£55), which combines a cute Hoya Kerri Heart with the Aery Happy Space hand wash and cream. Pure, glorious indulgence! Or perhaps your lucky teacher would prefer the Nurture Those Hands – Green Bamboo Gift Box (£55). This pairs a mini Miranda succulent with the healing and nurturing Green Bamboo hand wash and cream.

We also absolutely love the Digital Detox & De-Stress Gift Box and think this is a great teacher gift. This is a firm favourite of our customers this month too, as it’s our best-selling gift box!

Don’t worry if you’re still unsure what to choose for your child’s favourite teacher, there are plenty more ideas. Take a look at our full range of gift sets where you’ll find even more. It includes gorgeous plant gangs, plant and accessory bundles and not forgetting our luxury candle range too. And if you’re still not sure, you could always opt for a gift voucher. The lucky teacher can choose their own greenery to match their home.

We hope we’ve brought you plenty of teacher gifting ideas and inspiration. As ever, if you have any questions please do get in touch; [email protected]. And good luck navigating these final few weeks of term!
