Five bright gift ideas for teachers

Buying an end of term ‘thank you’ gift for your child’s teacher is never easy. Whilst on the one hand you don’t want to add to the growing pile of chocolates and ‘best teacher’ mugs that will be forming on their desk, you also don’t want to break the bank sourcing an original gift that they’ll actually enjoy.

So this year, why not think outside the box and get them a gift that’s sure to brighten up their summer? Here’s five ‘light’ ideas to get you started…

Cinematic light box

This LED cinematic light box from ed:t is a fantastic gift for a fun-loving teacher who is looking to liven up their classroom or home. The ed:t light box comes with 90 letters, numbers, and symbols, allowing for a truly personalised gift.

Solar festoon lights

Nothing says summer quite like outdoor festoons, and these pretty multi-coloured festoons from Cole & Bright are certain to brighten up any garden. Students aren’t the only ones who look forward to the summer holidays, so giving a gift that will help their teacher make the most of their time off is sure to be appreciated.

Colour-changing table light

The Orb colour-changing egg table light is a great gift to help your child’s teacher make the most of the long summer break. The colour-changing aspect of this table light means that it will suit any garden and meet the needs of any occasion, whether it’s enjoying a quiet summer evening, or livening up a garden party. 

LED solar glass lantern

The rustic seaside style of these lanterns is what makes them stand out as a truly stunning outdoor light. Additionally, the subtlety of these lanterns creates a relaxing and almost magical feel throughout any garden or outdoor area.

‘Dream’ light

Our final gift idea is the ‘Dream’ LED rope light from ed:t – an excellent gift for the more creative and artistic teacher. This light would make a fantastic addition to any classroom to help inspire students and teachers alike.
