The Ultimate Teacher Gift Guide 2023: Exclusive Finds from needi

We, at Collctiv, are lucky enough to have our hearts warmed regularly by stories from our customers of great gifts really making a difference. It makes us incredibly happy indeed to see people collecting money for a whole range of occasions and celebrations. But the task doesn’t quite end there… you’re still left with the big question, “What do I actually buy?!”

As appreciative as the person receiving the present is, I think we all know deep down that a tin of Quality Street chocolates and petrol station flowers aren't what we set out to buy when we start a collection. Life gets in the way, time flies by, and we never quite get round to buying something that truly shows our appreciation to the people we love and admire. 

Introducing our gifting partner - needi. The best and most innovative gifting platform which exists to make your life a whole lot easier, and your gifts endlessly better. Founders Lou and Steph set out on a mission to support local merchants and create a platform to help bring their wonderful creations to a wider audience.

Every Christmas, we see so many of our users showing love to the teachers out there with a special gift from the class. needi have kindly curated a list of the top 10 teacher gifts this year that you can find below! From Spa Breaks to wind down after a long school year to a Christmas Hamper full of the essentials (wine and breakfast tea are a must over the Christmas period!).

Check out the list and show your appreciation to the teachers crafting the minds of tomorrow.'

  1. Custom monopoly

This will take the number one slot in any games cupboard. This one of a kind personalised board game is uniquely customised around your life and memories. Throw in some school based references and any teacher will be absolutely delighted to receive this gift.

  1. Triple Tipple Christmas Hamper

As a great break from the never ending stream of children in their lives, offer them some quiet grown-up time. This handmade wicker basket is chock-full of delicious treats from crunchy brandy butter popcorn to rich champagne truffles and a traditional Christmas pudding to quintessential English breakfast tea. All of these delights are paired perfectly with three bottles of wine. That sounds like a kid-free break to me.

  1. Luxury Travel Voucher including Tailored Service

This luxury travel voucher is a great gift for anyone who loves a getaway. Something to fill up those six long weeks off in the summer (although I’m sure you’re still “working” teachers 👀). An expert travel guru is on hand to create a bespoke trip for the lucky person!

  1. Handmade Bespoke Shoe Gift Experience

Give the gift of completely bespoke shoes! Not only that, this gift is an experience. When your giftee turns up to meet their “shoe guy” you’ll be met with a G&T, beer or a cup of tea. If you’re stuck for inspiration, you can use their digital workshop to design the shoes. Then you’ll receive email updates over the next six weeks, keeping you up to date with the progress. This truly is a one of a kind gift.

  1. Personalised Luxury Leather Weekend Holdall

Everyone loves personalised items, but they love it even more when they’re absolutely top quality too! This luxury leather bag is a thing of beauty for the stylish traveller.

  1. At Home Vineyard

Everyone loves a good glass of wine with a good meal. But this is much more than that. This is a vineyard in your garden. Your giftee will receive absolutely everything they need from the ready-to-plant grape vines, pruning shears to a comprehensive list of instructions to turn them into a top local sommelier.

  1. Food & Drink Experiences

If the lucky gift receiver resides in London or Brighton, this could be a great gift! There is a whole list of different delicious food and drink experiences for them to enjoy.

  1. Spa Day or Spa Break

Personally, I think you should save this one for yourself! Who doesn’t need a break, and starting from just £50, why not indulge someone.

  1. Afternoon Tea

Afternoon tea is sophistication personified. Give someone who deserves it the gift of being able to gorge themselves on jam and cream, politely, of course.

  1. Bluetooth Table Speaker

I’d want to put some music on when I get home if I had to listen to endless excuses for not finishing homework. This speaker actually doubles up a beautiful looking table, so that they can plop down those school books and start to relax.
