It’s nearly the end of term. Time to find the perfect thank you gift for your child’s teacher!
Here are my top five ways to show your appreciation for someone who has worked their socks off all year and deserves a treat….
Stationery… teachers write an awful lot of lists and mark a lot of books. Pretty pens, notebooks and sticky notes will always be welcome and useful.
A bottle of fizz… much better than chocolates. Aldi’s Champagne is only £10.99 and is genuinely nice – as is their Crement du Jura, which is £7.49 a bottle. In fact, maybe someone would like to buy me a bottle as an end of term treat…?
Something pretty… a nice scarf, a keyring, a pair of earrings or a scented candle. A little bit of luxury will be welcome after spending a summer locked in a classroom with lots of grubby five year olds.
Cook something… biscuits, fudge or homemade jam, perhaps? Wrap it in cellophane tied with pretty ribbons and a label. Or, if you don’t have time for baking, how about putting together a little box of afternoon tea things? Some nice tea or coffee and a box of posh biscuits would go down well.
And finally, the simple homemade card… most teachers would probably rather have this than anything else. Whatever else you buy, or don’t buy, always remember to include this. It will mean the most.
