Teachers give their best to provide quality education to their students and contribute towards shaping their future. It’s World Teacher’s Day on October 5th! It’s a beautiful opportunity to express your gratitude and respect for these mentors in your life.

Gifts are a wonderful way to show your appreciation for all the dedication and hard work they have put into your education and development. Peter & Paul’s Gifts have come up with a fresh collection where you can find appropriate gifts for your teachers that can effectively convey your message and that they’ll love to receive.

However, there is some etiquette that you should be keeping in mind when it comes to choosing a gift for your teacher. Your gift shouldn’t be too expensive or extravagant.  We understand the importance and value of the teacher-student relationship and our team has kept this in mind when enriching our collection. In today’s blog post, we’ve listed five of our top teacher’s day gift recommendations from our store.

Cookie Gift Basket

One of the perfect ways to thank your teachers on this day is gifting a basket full of delicious cookies. We recommend pristine pleasures from our collection which comes with five bite-size snacks in a variety of flavours such as cinnamon, salty, raisin, bagel salty, and mastic. It’ll make a delightful appreciation gift. If you want something more unique other than cookies, you can check out our Golden Standard basket. It includes a combination of tasty treats such as chocolate drizzled caramel popcorn, Ghirardelli caramel milk chocolates, oatmeal tea cookies, chocolate espresso beans, lemon wafers, Almond Roca, and more. Teachers will love to receive any of these baskets as they can snack on these delicacies between classes.


A refreshing beverage gift basket is another amazing choice for teachers as it can help them get revitalized during breaks or in their leisure time. If your teacher is a tea lover, Tea Time is an ideal present you can consider. The basket comes with Tea Forte single steeps, a tea mug, diffuser, and a teapot. The wise man’s gift and tea forte dolce vita are some of our other top picks for a tea gift basket for your teacher. You can opt for our Italian roast coffee chest if he/she is a coffee loving person. This basket includes a full-sized bag of Lavazza Italian roasted coffee, chocolate chip cookies, Italian almond biscotti, a stainless steel travel mug with copper lid, and more.

Classroom Essentials 

A teacher’s job isn’t easy. Gifting them some essentials that they find useful for managing their tasks and desks can be a thoughtful expression. We recommend a present like whistle while you work tackle box from designer brand Kate Spade. It comes with various desk accessories including pencils, eraser, sharpener, clips, pins, and more. You can also check out our strike gold file organizer.

Floral Gifts

Flowers and plants can be a beautiful gift idea. They’re natural and are effective enough to convey your message of appreciation. You can opt for either French Country or Tuscany floral arrangement. They come with the freshest seasonal blooms arranged in stylish bases. You can also consider succulent plants as gifts. These plants are now trending in florals. They’re drought tolerant and don’t require much care. A present like very careful is a charming addition to your teacher’s desk.
