The best and worst of primary school teacher gifts

Apple - Rhino Stationery

Primary school teachers work very hard, don’t they? So much so that it’s nice to shower them with gifts at the end of the school year. Unfortunately, it’s sometimes hard finding the right present that shows your gratitude to the men and women who have educated your child all year long. That’s why you should know about the gifts that always hit the spot… as well as those that don’t quite have the same impact. With this in mind, here are the best and worst of primary school teacher gifts.


The best:

Something thoughtful

You may have to rely on your child’s observational skills to determine what exactly this is. For instance, if a teacher is constantly losing their stationery, you could buy them a bulk pack of red biros to help speed along their marking in the future. This type of gift will also remind them that your child recognises all the hard work they do for them.

Something everyone can use

You could buy a teacher a range of multi-coloured pens and pencils for their own personal use – especially if you know that they’re a creative soul. Even if it’s a misfire and they don’t end up using these directly, they will probably share them with their class so everyone will benefit at some point.


Something useful

Teachers always have use for a pad. The hardback ones are especially handy to have around and can be used for jotting down notes and lesson plans throughout the year. You can put your own touch on this option by selecting a cover that matches the teacher’s personality.

The worst:

Something overdone

Try to resist just buying flowers or chocolates for a primary school teacher. They’ll likely be inundated with such gifts and won’t know what to do with them all.

A stab in the dark

Yes, it’s good to think outside the box. That said, don’t just take a stab in the dark when it comes to what a teacher might enjoy.

Don’t leave it too late!
