    As we're coming to the end of the academic year I'm wondering if I should get anything to say thank you to my teachers.

    I have four, I was thinking I could just buy them a book each or spend about £10.

    Do other people do this sort of thing?

    Yeah. Its like a good bye gift as end you'll never see again gift. I brought my teachers chocolate.

    Most will just appeciate a "Thank You" card. At my uni. the lecturers put them up on their walls and shelves - they mean a lot.

    I wouldn't bother with a present - a book especially will be a bit pointless for a teacher/lecturer. Chocs, wine etc much the same if most of a class/subject group buys them. That turns from a treat into diabetes risk!
