Teachers gift ideas

With the end of the school year fast approaching, Mumsnet asked 1,200 teachers and teaching assistants what they would really like as an end-of-year gift.

To ensure your token of appreciation scores the highest marks this term, we’ve used this survey to create the ultimate teacher gift guide.

Here’s the top five ways to say thank you to the best teacher in town…
