Its that time of the year again where you might start thinking of organising a little present to say thank you to your child’s teacher!
Instead of the usual pens & notebooks, chocolate or even the very popular personalised ‘Mr. Smith No 1 Teacher’ mug (which you might spot in a charity shop near you eventually) how about a very simple but fun personalised bottle label which can be stuck on any bottle of wine? Its simple and easy and doesn’t take up a lot of your time to create but it’s still very thoughtful!
For as little as £3 you can get personalised wine bottle labels (which you can purchase from ebay or even Amazon) with a picture of your child and a text saying: “Our child might be the reason you drink so here’s a bottle on us!” or a similar text (there are also options to purchase a label without a picture) which we guarantee you will make any teacher smile!
Pop it into a bottle gift bag and let the children write a card with some nice words of thank you’s to their teacher and voila – the easiest teacher gift present ever is all done and ready to be presented to the teacher on the last day of term!
For the TA’s in school I found this great quote “It takes a big heart to help shape little minds.” which I think is very apt.
We have turned it into a downloadable A4 sheet for you which has 4 labels so it saves on paper when you print it.
Just stick it on a mini bottle of wine and pop it into a small gift bag or put a pretty bow around it instead!
We have been gifting bottles of wine with these personalised labels to our children’s teachers for at least 5 years now and their reaction every year is brilliant!
We think it’s such a simple, easy but very effective gift and it is always greatly received!
Alternatively another lovely present idea for teachers is to treat them to a gift card for their favourite coffee shop so they can fuel up before coming into school, you could even sent your child on a secret mission to ask her teacher what her favourite coffee shop is.
Lastly you could always have a joint money collection with the other parents in the class to purchase a gift card so the teachers can go and treat themselves to something they really like!
I personally think the One4all Gift cards are brilliant because you can use them in so many shops.
Also if you are doing a group gift you might also want to think about a group thank you card. Passing a card around for everyone to sign can be a logistical nightmare and very time consuming to organise. Instead why not give everyone in the class that is contributing a sticky note or plain sticker to write a small message of thanks onto. They can then all be stuck inside one group card for the teacher to enjoy reading.
Finally, help your child give your teacher some praise for the amazing work they have done this year and have a go at completing our‘Thank you Teacher’poster:
We hope you find these Thank You Teacher Gift Ideas just as genius as us and it helps minimising the time you spend looking for that perfect little present to thank your child’s teacher!
