Exam results day is here! With all the stress and hard work finally complete, it's time to celebrate.

If you're looking for a way to show how proud you are or want to treat the well-deserved Class of 2023, scroll on to shop the edit of the best results day gifts around for GCSE and A-Level students - from personalised chocolates to keepsake jewellery, party supplies and more.

When is exam results day 2023? 

Results day for 2023 exams in the UK will take place on Thursday 24 August for GCSE students and Thursday 17 August for A-Level students. 

How we chose the best results day gifts 

  • Price: We've selected gifts in a range of price points, although most are affordable items that are more about the gesture and sentimental value. 
  • Customisation: I think the best kind of results day gift is one that can be treasured for a lifetime, and a personalised gift gives that extra special touch. Some of the gifts in this edit can be customised with names and photos to remember the special day.
  • Personal experience: I have only selected the items that I truly believe a student would love to receive on results day, having been one not so long ago.
