    I've been having piano lessons for about 7 years now but will be stopping soon. My teacher is absolutely lovely and has gone out of her way to give me lessons so I wanted to get her a gift to say thank you. My mum received a pretty teacup and saucer a while ago and liked it so I thought it would be a good idea to get my teacher something similar. I have bought her some flowers and this:



    Personally it's something I'd like to receive but after bringing it home and thinking about it it seems like a bit of a random/pointless gift. Is it a bit weird and should I get something else instead?
    I don't have time to order anything online so if I returned this I would have to buy something that can be bought in a high street shop.

    Nah, I'd say it's pretty good for a gift.

    I think it's cute - however, does your teacher like antiques and things like that? Personally I'd never want something like that as I just wouldn't know want to do with it as I have plenty of cups as it is.

    So make sure you get something she can not just value, but use.
