As the academic year draws to a close, it’s got us to thinking about the wonderful job that teachers do, as they prepare for their well-deserved summer break. They pass on knowledge and guidance, they encourage and educate, and most of all they put up with our children all year round!
There comes a time when we need to say THANK YOU for all they do, on behalf of our little ones. But the best way? Don’t worry, we’ve got it covered with personalised gift ideas that will make your child memorable for all the right reasons!
An Apple a Day
The humble apple has for a long time been a symbol associated with teaching and the classroom, for a whole host of reasons. This article explains the interesting origins of some of them – the apple being a traditional first-day-of-school gift and the letter “A” for apple kicking off that all important alphabet.
If you’re looking for a little something that’s traditional but will be treasured, our personalised apple-themed coasters make the perfect gift from the apple of your teacher’s eye.
Each item is crafted from quality solid walnut wood, meaning they are made to last, and the personalised message will ensure that memories of your child will always stay with their teacher, even when they’re all grow up. With a coaster to liven up their desk, a Create Gift Love product will surely be the envy of the staffroom!
One for the Bookworms
Want to make a mark (excuse the pun!) on your teacher’s last day of term? Our lovely personalised bookmarks make a great gift for teachers, especially those that love to read or taught your child how!
Metal Bookmark - £16
Our stainless steel bookmark is designed in the shape of a fountain pen and can include any message of your choice – a simple “thank you” or perhaps a favourite memory shared in class. Perfect for your teacher’s summer reading during those long school holidays!
Star of the Show
For an extra festive token for teachers, our personalised "Star Teacher" bauble is a great option and will take pride of place hanging on the Christmas tree of in the classroom.
The bauble is made from elegant gold mirrored acrylic, while the back is made of solid walnut and can be personalised with an engraved message of your choice.
We know that there’s always so much going on at the end of term, with sports days, holidays, assemblies and school concerts on the horizon – but worry not: these great teacher gifts can be ordered from home when the kids have gone to bed and can be delivered directly to your door.
(And they’re not just for the end of term – World Teacher’s Day is celebrated every year on 5th October and a Christmas surprise is always very welcome!)
