As schools get ready to close their doors for a much-needed Christmas break, you may still be looking for a gift to show a special teacher some much deserved end-of-term appreciation.
It has been another challenging year for education, but Salisbury has a range of shops where you can find the perfect thank you present.
Regent Tailoring on New Street has a wealth of gift ideas that would be perfect for any teacher. From classics like socks, ties and cufflinks to unique books and bags. Pop in for some gift inspiration.
After another really tough year for education, coping with a global pandemic and many ups and downs for teachers and students, this meditation CD might just be the thing they need to relax over the Christmas break.
Salisbury Meditations is a compilation of organ music recorded earlier this year at Salisbury Cathedral when it was operating as a large-scale vaccination hub. You can buy the CD from the Cathedral gift shop. All proceeds will go to NHS Charities Together.
Your teacher will be the envy of the staff room with a desirable mug from Casa Fina on the High Street. There’s a whole range available but we love the more personal Salisbury cups and a breakfast design which they can fill with a caffeine fix of their choice to get them through the day! Casa Fina also has a whole range of beautiful Christmas decorations and gift ideas that would be perfect for an end-of-year treat.
If your teacher prefers their cuppa on the go, then opt for one of these bamboo cups. They’re eco-friendly and will keep tea or coffee warm even during the longest lessons! Find them at Conker Boutique in The Maltings.
We’re sure any teacher would love to tuck into these festive treats from Roly’s Fudge Pantry on the High Street! They have mini Christmas puddings and vanilla clotted cream treat bags, all of which are made in store. It’s worth a trip into the store just for the amazing smell!
Doesn’t every teacher need a diary?! Seasalt on Silver Street is a business that’s inspired by Cornwall, and so are these beautiful diaries. Every spread has a week view and facing page for notes to-do list or planning so there’s plenty of space to get classes organised. Each month has a Cornish scene created by Seasalt artists. They’ve also added a year planner complete with UK holidays and key dates.
These little soaps are perfectly designed for a festive gift. They look beautiful, smell lovely and have Christmas written all over them, literally! Find them at Fisherton Mill Gallery.
We’re sure all teachers would like some pampering over Christmas and this set from The Body Shop in the Old George Mall will make bath time fun this Christmas! It includes a selection of scented bath bombs and includes their new sustainable bath lily – known as a Ramie.
If you are still not sure what to buy your teacher, but know you want to keep it local, then the ideal present could be a Salisbury Gift Card. Buy any amount you want online, or from the Salisbury Information Centre, and it can be used in over 130 city centre businesses, from shops to salons, entertainment venues and restaurants.
