Anyone who follows me here knows that I like to treat my sons’ teachers when it comes to thank you gifts to show our appreciation for all that they do.

I always take in Easter Eggs, Christmas gifts (Christmas tree biscuits and bath sets are my usual go-tos) and end of year presents with the wow factor are the name of the game for us too, and have been since my kids went to nursery.

I used to be an English GCSE teacher myself, and lectured MA Screenwriting and Directing at universities as well so know first-hand how hard teachers work and how much care and attention is required when it comes to this vocational career. A little appreciation goes a long way whether it’s DIY homemade gifts or something you buy that you’ve put some thought into.

As I mentioned, for the end of year gifts I do like to go all-out as it’s usually last time my kids will be taught by that particular teacher and we like to end the year with something meaningful before the summer holidays begin.

Whilst we often bake goodies (hello cupcakes and biscuits) we also adore personalising something unique for the end of year pressie.

When Snapfish asked if I’d like to work with them on gifts for teachers, I knew I’d be able to create something stunning and high quality using my favourite blog photos taken by my talented husband Peter.

Sifting through my favourite photos of Pete’s literally took hours but the designing and ordering process on the Snapfish site took mere minutes!

Quick and easy, I created a canvas, coffee mug (every teacher’s fave) and a large cushion too (everyone needs a comfy cushion in the staff room, right?) to please everyone. Choosing striking and emotive shots be it the elegant swan residents of Windsor, the London Eye or a scene from paradise aka Ocho Rios, Jamaica, I knew these pieces would appeal to the Head Teacher and my son’s two form tutors as they’d be items to cherish always.

    Love the cushion! Great idea! I renovate properties and always get big canvas prints done with artwork from my sister, and I think I’ll be looking at cushions too! Great ideas for teachers who must be so bored of boxes of chocolates… well, maybe!

    I love that there are so many different options with Snapfish. Last year we gave Sylvia’s teacher an engraved Parker Pen. I think the cushion is a fun idea Also putting in a picture of mug Might be a great idea too. I will ask Sylvia what she wants to get her teachers this year.

    I also like to find unique gifts for the teachers as they deserve it. Usually, I tend to find craft items but never thought about personalised gifts. Snapfish seems like a great idea & what you have managed to do is fantastic. I will definitely have a look on their website & it’s worth trying with a 40% discount.

    This is fab! Teacher’s gifts can be such a stressful shopping experience, although these days I stick to tried and tested ideas – stationery, edibles and yummy smelly stuff 😉 Love the idea of a cushion, would never have thought of that. Thanks for the Snapfish code, will def make use of that! x

    What a great idea! I think any Teacher would much prefer something a little bit more personalised than the endless gifts of wine, chocolates or a candle! For my Daughter’s Teachers in the last few years we have made a point to get something a bit different. Plus it also serves as a little reminder for the Teacher of the children they have taught over the years. I’m going to have a look at what Snapfish has to offer!

    I couldn’t agree more – it’s so important to appreciate teachers. They do so much and a little appreciation really goes a long way. In our school, all of us parents usually club together and give gift vouchers but I’m loving the idea of giving a personalised gift. Peter’s photo’s are so incredible so they do make the perfect gift. Definitely will checkout Snapfish for this years gifts – it would be a lovely touch alongside the vouchers we give. x

    I love Snapfish! I create calendars for the grandparents with different family photos each month and made a HUGE collage poster for my husband’s 40th. I’d never thought to use it for teacher presents, what a good idea! I have to say, I wouldn’t put my child’s face on them though as I imagine, however gorgeous she is, the teacher would much prefer time away from children and a lovely view or shot like the ones you’ve made.
