6 Unique Gifts That Teachers Actually Want

22 June 2017

Well, isn’t this year just flying by? Summer’s well and truly here, and with it comes the amazing summer holidays! Six weeks of kids’ water fights, ice lollies and, if you’re lucky, a summer holiday somewhere hot!

But this time of year also means that the teachers are packing up their desks to enjoy some well deserved time off. Usually they’re inundated over the next couple of weeks with an endless supply of ‘No. 1 Teacher’ mugs and ‘Best Teacher in the World’ pencils. However, many teachers, although grateful for these thoughtful gifts, would much rather have something else.

So, without further ado, here’s the B&M list of the best teacher present ideas!
