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.
With such a wide breadth of choice when it come to gifts on Snapfish from calendars, multiple sized canvases and even personalised blankets, you can pick and choose what works for your teacher’s tastes and of course, your preferred budget.
The guys at Snapfish are also kindly giving my readers a discount code too with a whopping 40% off with the word SCHOOLFUN entered at the check out when you buy your gifts.
Happy shopping people, your kids’ teachers will thank you for it!
