Teachers are a Gift – 12 Ways To Show It

Apple for teacher gift

I love teachers! They are an absolute gift. A breed apart.

Have you met my children? Hard work. Bloody hard work. And there are only two of them! After the 6 weeks’ holidays, I’m very ready to send them back to school. I mean, I love them dearly, but…you know what I’m saying? Exhausting!

So I’m all for showing teachers how much we appreciate them by the end of term. A gold medal wouldn’t go amiss! But it’s hard to be a bit different, which is what I aim to be for these special people. I’m sure anything we give is greatly appreciated, I know it in fact, as I have many friends who are teachers.

They tell me they like the little thoughtful things – homemade by the children, heartfelt by the parents. Special words and touches rather than extravagance. Although to be fair, I’ve not met one who would turn down a nice bottle of something. Well, there are 6 weeks to get through!

So here are a few sweet, personal and inexpensive ideas from Amazon to get your creative juices flowing, or save them even, since there’s not long to go now ’til the end of term……

  1. I love the look of the teacher survival kit in a can. We spotted a nice teacher basket of goodies when visiting Cadbury World recently which will be our present to J’s preschool teachers but will be making the cards to go with it. Great gift ideas for the end of term.
