Buying your child’s teacher a Christmas gift is pretty much an unwritten rule these day. Plus – you might want to consider getting something for the teaching assistant (some classes have 2) and breakfast and after school club staff if you use those as well.


If that’s the case – it can be a pretty pricey time of year when we’re often already spending out cash left, right and centre.

So we’ve come up with some great present ideas that won’t break the bank. Take a look…

We love this well-sized and gorgeous-looking pamper set which includes shower products, body lotion and hand cream in a lovely jojoba and vanilla scent.

2. Handmade Mini Sari Journal, £4.95

Being organised is the nature of the job if you’re a teacher, so we reckon a cute and portable little notebook could just be the perfect gift.

3. Latte Macchaiato Flavour Chocolate Spoon with Mini Marshmallows, £3.50

A lovely set to make a delicious coffee flavoured hot chocolate. Just dip and swirl the spoon into a cup of hot milk for a festive treat.

4. Mini bottle of Bottego Rose Gold, £3.99

Unless you know your little one’s teacher doesn’t drink, it might be worth taking a punt on a Christmassy celebration drink like this mini iconic Prosecco. Surely they deserve a few bubbles right?

Everyone loves the smell of Christmas, and this cute-as-a-button but oh-so-sophisticated black rose and saffron reed diffuser will fill any lounge with blissful scents.
