At the end of the school year, it can be nice to get your children’s teachers a nice gift as a “thank you” for looking after and supporting your child, over the past academic year. Teachers often end up putting their students before their own needs, therefore a nice little gift can make a world of difference, as it shows that you have thought about them and that you appreciate the things that they do. The perfect present doesn’t have to be expensive or fancy, something heartfelt and thoughtful can go a lot further in expressing gratitude, and it will be something that the teacher remembers in the years to come.
A Thank you card
An easy, affordable thank you gift to a teacher could be to get them a card, with a handwritten note inside expressing your appreciation for their time and efforts this academic year. Upon leaving for the summer break, it is nice to reassure your teachers that you have noticed that they have gone the extra mile, and that you care about what they have been teaching. You could always slip in a gift card as well, for that extra special gift.
Why not get your teacher a chocolate hamper, full of all their favourite sweet treats? Chocolate can be saved for any occasion so they can help themselves over the summer holidays, or share it with their family and friends. Why not order one for yourself too? Go on – you deserve it!
Things my students have said journal
This funny and unique present is the perfect gift to get a teacher, as it can be easy to forget all the comical things kids say, especially when they teach multiple classes a day. Getting them this journal to carry with them to class, means they will never miss a funny joke again and it is a great way for them to reminisce on their time spent teaching.
Now your teacher is ready to enjoy some much-needed time off, why not purchase some summer essentials such as a beach towel, picnic blanket, or personalised water bottle that they can use over the summer. Whether they are spending a day at the beach with friends, or a family picnic in the park, this gift will be very appreciated and thoughtful – and you can guarantee it will definitely be used!
